Although Shoreditch may seem like it’s for hipsters with handlebar moustaches and corduroy turn-ups, there are in fact some secret gems that you can’t miss out on.
Once a bullion truck depot and now a cosy Al Fresco dining extravaganza, East London’s Street Feast Dinerama is the place to go if you’re after amazing street food, a bustling atmosphere and some funky tunes.
Grab a killer rum cocktail or sip on some local beer and hustle for a seat at the communal tables.
There is something for everyone at Dinerama, as it features 13 vendors with a mix of food and drink from around the world.
If you’re after some 10/10 jerk chicken then ‘White Men Can’t Jerk’ is the one for you. £7 for some Jamaican spiced chicken and chips — you can’t go wrong.
Or if that doesn’t take your fancy why not choose some soft steamed buns from ‘Yum Bun’, some Mexican tacos from ‘Club Mexicana’ or a ‘Fundi’ woodfired pizza. Plus there’s loads more!
As the cold weather settles, Dinerama have lovingly put a roof over the venue, added some fire pits and whacked on the heaters. No longer do you need to sit there shivering whilst you tuck into some delicious street food.
