There are a lot of great places to eat around the London Fields and Haggerston area, and quite a few good ones are beneath the railway arches that criss-cross the neighbourhood. One of our favourites is Berber & Q, a North African and Middle Eastern inspired restaurant with a great crowd, fantastic food, and often, a line. The whole roasted cauliflower is a cult dish, and both the meat and veg dishes from the grill will make you happy. The location’s a little off the beaten path unless you’re staying out east, but it’s worth it. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled onto a hidden, locals-only spot. Because you have.
