Mile End – Fast Food News 1

    I live in mile end and very close to FFC

    in my view there are plentyof chicken shops Iin mile end/stepney green, but FFC next to mile end station is without a doubt a contender for the best Chicken shop in the world. It’s fast friendly cheap and has a quality all over it.

    I’m in and around the station at all hours. I think this place should be 24 hours.
