MyLondon in Real Time – Day 6

The Brick Lane neighborhood in East London was close to my hotel, so I walked over to see why it is called the famous curry capital of the UK.I stepped into a cozy restaurant called Joe’s Kid where the menu is written in colorful chalk on a blackboard and I ordered a sausage and bean omelette. I figured it was a good omen since I, like the restaurant owner, am also Joe’s kid — daughter of the late Joseph Lombardi. The artwork on the side of the building above depicts the owner as a child with her grandfather who started the restaurant.
