What they say:
From what started as a market stall, Lahpet has gone from strength to strength. While the Burmese restaurant still has its spot in Spitalfields Market, it's now opening another restaurant following the decision to close in Hackney. The team have decided to relocate to a more central position, taking over the spot formerly occupied by a tapas restaurant in Shoreditch. Expect the same great mix of dishes from Myanmar, including tea leaf salad and curried aubergines stuffed with dried shrimps, oyster mushrooms and corn.
