If you follow any of the media accounts of, or even have overheard amongst friends talks of ‘Street Feast London’, then you may have heard of Dinerama – a street food heaven right in the heart of Shoreditch.
With a layout consisting of both indoor and outdoor drinks and food stalls, and seated relaxing food and drink areas, Dinerama is a quirky and chilled setting that is definitely a must-visit whatever time of the day and whatever the occasion. With a large range of choice on the all important food-front, and pint sized cocktails for £10, you are sure to be satisfied!
On the food front: I had a Crispy Chicken Bao Bun from Yum Bun and we shared ‘Beer-battered Cheeze Fries’ with sour ‘cream’ and chilli sauce from Club Mexicana which were the best cheese fries I have had – but also vegan (which Ed didn’t even realise!). They were delicious and really stood out for me in the ever increasing Vegan food market.
If you are after something sweet for afterwards – ‘You Doughnut’ is where it’s at. (I cannot locate my picture so check out their instagram!) These sweet and fluffy doughnut bites come in either a ‘Salted Peanut Popcorn Caramel’ variety or a ‘Malted Milk Chocolate’ variety. We went for the latter which consisted of vanilla doughnut bites with malted milk chocolate sauce, Maltesers, and malted milk crumble. For only £3 these were an excellent way to finish off on the food front.
On the drinks front:
There are many places to grab a drink at Dinerama, however the best views and atmosphere are from the upstairs bars, so I would either recommend getting your drinks from these to sit either inside or outside (or half in-half out), or taking your drinks up to the upstairs seating. In the evenings when all the multi-coloured lights are turned on the atmosphere really heads up a level. As I mentioned before, pint sized cocktails are available for £10, however, the picture above was a standard Elderflower Mojito from one of the downstairs stalls, which was still a very respectable size!
Before you go:
Before certain times on certain days, cut-off usually 5pm, entry is free – and after is £3, so if you are counting pennies but want those doughnuts, head over as early as possible!
