It's a 'new openings' party fiesta in this week's London food news! We have the original Cronut bakery coming to town, Crosstown Doughnuts opening in Shoreditch, Chick 'n' Sours arrive in Covent Garden and Hawker House get into the Oktoberfest spirit.
This week in London food: Dirty Bones in Shoreditch, 50% off burgers at Patty & Bun, Voodoo Ray's in Camden and the return of Pitt Cue to Soho.
A couple of weeks ago in my London food news roundup I mentioned that The Blue's Kitchen's burger of the month for April 2016 is The Holy Cheezus: a glorious creation of a burger served between two toasted cheese sandwiches! Seriously. Ever the dedicated journo (or fatty) I popped down to The Blue's Kitchen in Shoreditch last week to check out this bad boy for myself.
The Blue's Kitchen have been on the restaurant scene for a while but I went down to Shoreditch to check out their Monday night Rib Night for myself.
It's an eclectic mix of exciting food news happening in London this week including: discounts on barbecue ribs, discounts on eggs(!?), craft beer, a pizza/burger hybrid, chicken parmigiana from Lucky Chip and rainbow bagels!
I'm hip, yeah? I occasionally wear skinny jeans and an over-sized coat. I can be cool and down with the kids (ignoring the fact that I am fast approaching my mid-30s). So when we were invited to the opening of Neverended, an exhibition of London's graffiti and street art in uber-hipster Shoreditch this week I wasn't going to let a little thing like my lack of street cred get in the way.
You've all heard of the Donut Burger, right? What's that? A burger sandwiched between two doughnuts? Yup, that's the one. You know where you can get one of those? Red's True Barbecue in Shoreditch!
Let me start this review by saying that this place was so good we went back two weeks in a row because it was so delicious! Read on.
Bird in Shoreditch, London sells a mountainous fried chicken burger BETWEEN TWO GIANT FREAKING WAFFLES. What more do you need to know? Well, all of this...
After hauling some serious building ass all over the venue, Dinerama has been rebuilt and has risen again like a phoenix from the BBQ smokey flames.
