Another feature of Spitalfields Market is that it is well served by eating houses catering for all manner of tastes, not just giant chains. One of my favourites is Pilpel, a falafel joint that turns out very tasty food at a reasonable price. If that doesn't take your fancy, why, next door you have a Caribbean food, then Indonesian, then Italian deli, then Chinese. Each of them appear to be small outfits turning out food of high quality. If you are in the area at lunchtime, do yourself a favour and give them a try.
