Plaistow cafe London

Food review: Plaistow Cafe, 163 Plaistow Road, Plaistow, London

Eat like an Eastender It's not all fancy food here at Foodie Towers, we like to find a good local cafe on our travels and here is one. Thanks to AirBnB and the rise of rented home accommodation we were staying in a house in Plaistow (pronounced Plas-toe) for the simple reason that we could

Farmstand London feature

Food review: Farmstand, 42 Drury Ln, London

Midwest Philosophy takes root in London Talk about spirituality and you inevitably talk about eastern philosophy. Talk about food philosophy, and you'll typically think of Farm to Table or perhaps Slow Food, both of which are big on the other side of the world.

Food review: Ed’s Easy Diner, Euston Station, London

Ed's Easy Diner,  Euston Station Travelling back from London on a train at dinner time often means eating a sandwich that you don't really want or a takeaway that annoys the rest of the carriage!  I wanted something hot and a proper covered seating area (it was raining) so with just enough time for a
