Lunch @ Big Moe's Diner (Whitechapel, London)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A couple of weeks ago, I went to try Big Moe's Diner. It is located across the road from where I am working not far from Aldgate East station on Whitechapel Road. There are a few other American diner food restaurants in and around London, and most of these are chains. I have never tried Big Moe's (which also has a branch in Barking, Essex). Big Moe's claims to be an authentic American dining experience using good ingredients, large portions, and living by the American dining experience. 


The inside of the diner has the shell of a Cadillac car with seats inside it, black and white checkered floor, red seats, and plenty of 1950s nostalgia. There is also an ice cream bar at the front.



I had the chicken burger, which came with chips. I also ordered a side of the cajun-spiced onion rings. The chicken burger was tasty, but I didn't care much for the cajun spice put onto the onion rings, and they were a bit too dry. I've had better battered onion rings in London. The chips tasted like frozen store-bought ones, so I was not a fan. Overall, I did feel the food was a bit too greasy.


Ice cream, on the other hand, was very nice. I had a sundae with chocolate sauce and nuts, which I chose because it is a staple to have chocolate syrup and nuts with ice cream. (I had this a lot of the time when I was growing up in the states.) There were plenty of other toppings and flavours of ice cream on offer.


Moe's Diner is located 96 Whitechapel Street, London, E1 7RA. It is open from 11:00 in the morning to 11:00 in the evening every day. 

Note that I visited the restaurant on my own, and my thoughts are my own. This is not sponsored by the restaurant.
