Tayyab's and the surroundings
I'll be in Whitechapel sooner or later. Please give any reccs or ideas which you have regarding the area. I'll go as far east as I can and I'm willing to go much further into East London if anyone has any reccs in that area.
Tayyabs is sadly over-rated nowadays. Try the Turkish place opposite called Maedah Grill. Excellent kebabs - they grill over charcoal. The pide are great too.
A little further afield (the other end of Brick Lane) is the Indian eatery Mai'da in Bethnal Green Road. An interesting menu of both Indian classics and Indo-Chinese.
