EFES Turkish Restaurant & the Whitechapel Gallery

At the end of Brick Lane, or the beginning, we chose it because it is close to Whitechapel Gallery where we are headed for an art talk. Efes wasn’t worth returning to. We had a mix of kabobs and some spinach bread. No thrill. Again, a google search, and a book fair? And into the […]
