Best Takeaways in East London


Pepe’s Piri Piri

These guys cook up some of London’s best charcoal chicken dishes, so it’s no surprise that hungryhouse customers have fallen in love with Pepe’s Piri Piri, but oh boy do these guys know chicken! From chicken steak burgers to fried chicken strips, from giant spicy fillet burgers to grilled chicken and spicy kidney bean wraps, it seems like Pepe’s have got every kind of chicken meal under the sun!

Nick Andrews from Burger Me! sampled the Giant Spicy Chicken Burger from Pepe’s and was bowled over by the use of piri piri sauce;

This burger really turns up the heat – the fruity, spicy peri peri merges with the battered chicken fillet and the sticky american cheese really nicely, and the mayo and lettuce keep the burger balanced. It’s a jolly good effort from a fast food chain.

Finding quality Pad Thai in London is no mean feat, with plenty of restaurants claiming to serve up a truly delicious Pad, but only the Noodle Street on Pennyfields can really claim the Pad Thai crown, with legions of customers consistently rating their Pad Thai as one of best Pad Thais they’ve ever tasted outside of Thailand.
