The Disappearing Dining Club

Saad has been moaning that we never go out in East London. He's sick of Chelsea you see, and I can understand why. So on Friday I did a quick restaurant search and came across a tiny hole in the wall restaurant called 'Be Back in 5 Minutes' in Bricklane. To call it restaurant would be a slight over statement but we will stick to this word for now.

Secret restaurant hidden behind this shop

The restaurant is at the back of a clothes shop. You think the curtains are the entrance to a changing room but it actually opens up into a dark room at the back of the shop. The room is lit up by very dim lights and a few candles. It feels instantly intimate and secretive. There is only 1 lady serving and there are 3 big tables so you will most likely have to share your table with someone.

The menu is small and simple. You choose to have a 3 or 4 course dinner for a set price of between 30-35 pounds which I thought was a bit expensive considering how simple the food is. Thankfully every dish was good and felt very much like home cooking.
