This is probably another perfect example when I’m just a little too late in the day to be blogging about something. But this something involved awesome food, so better late than never. Right, so this is all about Dinerama – which is based in Shoreditch and still open until 4th October. It’s basically a celebration of street food – and brings together a load of street diners, bars and food trucks in one place.
In all honesty, Shoreditch is not my favourite area of London. But it’s things like this that make me reconsider it. It’s such a great idea to bring all these different food options and fun bars (think cocktails out of pineapples to go along with a lobster brioche or some rosemary fries). The best bit being that you can pick and mix between vendors – so if you can’t decide between a sourdough base pizza and some sweet japanese buns then you don’t have to. You can pick and choose as you like.
The whole area has a great atmosphere, and as much as glorious summer weather would make it perfect – that can’t always be relied upon. In fact, the night we went it was lovely, but then rained a bit – but there’s enough covered areas that it’s not a problem if this happens.
Food wise, we went for a total mix – we had some sweet Japanese buns (duck – FYI), sour dough base pizza, wings and chips – all of which we cut into smaller pieces and shared. So we got to try a bit of everything which was ideal. We left feeling beyond stuffed but very happy.
It was a great place to head for a night out if you want something a bit different from a typical restaurant meal, or just heading to a pub. I loved it and would like to head back before the end of the summer… but that’s looking unlikely as I’m already running out of time!? Anyone else got that feeling that the days are all going past a little too quickly?!
But, get in there quick if you want to make the most of any good days in September – there’s a few predicted this week so go go go! Food wise… I’d recommend the pizza. SO good. Oh, and any cocktail out of a pineapple…
