Story Deli

story_deli_01

If you head north along Brick Lane in east London, right before the road ends, you will come across an anonymous but beautiful building that houses one of the most delicious pizza places on this side of the pond- Story Deli. I think I stumbled across Story Deli after seeing a photo of it on instagram and immediately fell in love with decor. When you walk in you are greeted by tall ceilings, white walls and communal tables. My favorite bit is the ceiling that is filled with skylights that allow a flood of natural light into the room. But, beyond the decor, the pizzas really are insanely delicious. Reid and I have visited about three or four times, each time ordering two different pizzas to share and have always devoured them embarrassingly quickly. Two that I would recommend are the dora romero (with chorizo, smashed tomatoes, basil pesto and buffalo mozzarella) and the aubergine, goat’s cheese and ham.

How long have you lived in London?

All my life. I was born and raised in London and while all my family has moved, London will always be my home.

What makes someone a Londoner?

If you can embrace London with all it’s highs and lows then you are a Londoner. You can do anything, at any time. there is always something going on so you can never be bored.

North London or South London?

North of the river.

Favorite thing about living in London?

I love how when the sun shines it feels like everyone just gravitates towards any patch of green grass.

Least favorite thing about living in London?

Rush hour tubes.

Favorite spot to grab a drink?

Current favourite is Hawkhurst Vault in Brick Lane. Great tea, great cakes, beer and good people.

Favorite spot to grab a bite?

There are too many great places to eat in London. Soho and Shoreditch probably give the most variety for food. I love the Saturday markets but shooting weddings means I only get to experience these in the off season.

Taxi, Tube, Bus, Bike or Walk?

If I can I walk…best way to explore London.

Where do you go to get away from the city?

I have friends all over the UK so when given the chance I will visit them. But the other city which has stolen my heart is Berlin.
