Ethiopiques @ Sunday UpMarket


After over 4 years of living in London and countless ventures down Brick Lane, I’d still never visited the Sunday UpMarket, situated in The Old Truman Brewery. After returning to London from spending Christmas in Wales, I finally paid it a visit on Sunday.

With an array of arts, crafts and clothing, what impressed me most were the endless rows of food stalls and the lingering aromas that emitted from them. Japanese, Turkish, Mexican, Greek, there was something to suit all tastes and preferences. Inevitably though, it was a vegetarian/vegan Ethiopian food stall that caught my eye. With such a broad range of salads, cous cous, rice, olives and sauces, I was spoilt for choice!


Eventually, I paid £5 for a large plate filled to the brim with cous cous, leafy salad, pitted olives, marinated chickpeas, grilled aubergines, garlic spinach and soya bean sauces.

Delicious, filling and refreshing yet heathy too, Ethiopiques provided me with the perfect energy boost to continue my bargain hunt down Brick Lane.
