CHEZ ELLES

Everybody knows Brick Lane is thé curry street of London. Between all the curry restaurants however there’s a little French restaurant called ‘Chez Elles’. The interior is very idyllic, with birdcages all over— including little fake birds—and a lot of flower patterns. It has exactly the atmosphere of a picturesque French restaurant, which is only reinforced by the staff and most of the customers speaking French. We took the charcuterie platter as a starter which was really delicious. As a main dish I had the steak which melted on my tongue. On a second visit, I also tasted the steak tartare which was perfectly cut and prepared. I can safely say this is one of my favourite London restaurants. It’s only just a pity that it is far away from where I live.
