Pizza by the slice is something that’s never fully made the journey across the pond from New York to London. There are a few places but not on the scale we feel is, well, necessary. Paradise Slice is a nice addition to Brick Lane, and its pizza is fairly decent as well. Stop in for a quick snack, or order a 20” ‘pie’ (as New Yorkers say) to share. Either option makes for a cheap and cheerful lunch.
