FOOD-LOVERS sampled dishes from all over the world as they wound their way along the East End's waterways on Sunday.

Walkers and cyclists tasted food from Japan, Thailand, France, Turkey and Italy as they made their way along the Regent's Canal between Shoreditch and Limehouse in the Yours to Taste festival organised by British Waterways.

Sixteen cafes and restaurants along the canal offered visitors a taste of east London and people following the trail listened to music from The Hoodlums who travelled along the canal on top of a barge.

Restaurants scattered along the three-mile route down the canal towpath which were taking part in the event included La Vie En Rose at Broadway Market, Victoria Park's Pavilion Café, The Crown pub in Grove Road, Bow and La Figa in the Limehouse Basin.
