Go shopping at Bangla City

London's rich multiculturalism gives rise to many different communities in the city, and within those communities people want to buy things which are distinctive to their cuisine and culture. Hence we are blessed with many shops and supermarkets selling unusual items which are usually not found outside their home countries.

The Bangla City Continental Supermarket is an odd institution. For a start Bangladesh is part of the Indian Subcontinent, and its an area of the world with few supermarkets. Nevertheless, it's an interesting place, with many items you wouldn't find in your local Tescos.

Pop in next time your on Brick Lane and see the range of produce on offer. Click here to see the location on a map.

  1. Very interesting. One of the things I love about city life is access to great markets like this.
