Why you should hang out on Drummond Street this summer

Euston’s famous foodie strip’s still got its community charm

n the balmier months, this atmospheric thoroughfare at the heart of Euston makes a great wander if you’re peckish, or have some time to spare.

With a host of decades-old Indian eateries, such as Chutney, Diwana and Ravi Shankar, a lunchtime visit for an all-you-can-eat midday buffet (less than a tenner) is legendary round these parts.

For a further initiation into Euston’s Bengali community, pop into sweetshops Gupta or Ambala, where chipper staff will talk you through a host of saccharine delicacies.

Across the road, there’s the labyrinthine Indian Spice Shop offering everything from alcohol-free wine to Himalayan salt lamps; at the top of the street is award-winning Bio-Organix Health Store, for remedies.

And secret Tolmers Square lies through an arch, a surprisingly tranquil spot.
