Shoreditch is seriously one of the coolest neighborhoods you can visit in London. Located in the East End, and is known for being the place where hipsters, tech bros, and everyone in between has gravitated towards. Take a stroll around Brick Lane, where you’ll find plenty of burry houses and amazing vintage shopping. There are plenty of bars to check out, but what we love about this area the most is the fact that it has an incredible culinary scene. These are some spots that you absolutely cannot miss if you’re here for a visit.
Dishoom is an absolute must if you’re a fan of Indian food. They serve incredibly delicious food at a great and affordable price. This location is complete with Irani decor that will transport you right into the heart of Mumbai. If you do want to eat here, you really should make a reservation, as it fills up quick. While you’re here, definitely make sure you order the house black daal, you can thank us later.
If you want to try something totally crazy, then head over to Stuffed, where you can enjoy a gelato-stuffed doughnut. Yup, you read that right. While it might sound like the most insane thing you’ve ever heard of, just remember that gelato-filled brioche is actually a very typical breakfast item in Sicily, so consider it your free pass. There’s a whole menu of pre-selected combinations including Honey I’m Home, which is a salted caramel gelato with peanut butter toppings and honeycomb and caramel sauce. You can also try out the Morning Glory, which features coffee gelato topped with chocolate toffee bits and amaretto sauce. There are also incredible hot chocolates with amazing toppings you can choose from.
Aida is an amazing place that’s a hip clothing and home accessory shop along with imaginative cafe all in one. The concept store is a definite must visit, and while you’re here you simply must try the Rose Latte, which will be hands down the most beautiful drink you’ll ever get. We recommend getting it with coconut milk, which will complement the rose and beetroot that give this drink its signature huge. It might sound bizarre, but we promise it’s also very tasty in addition to very visually appealing.
Lovers of fusion places, this is certainly one to look out for. Vegan Yes is a Korean-Italian fusion restaurant that’s the creation of Chef Mauro and his wife Dr. Min, who have a goal of creating delicious food that’s also nutritional and is plant-based, preservative free, refined sugar free, has no reheated oils, and contains probiotics. That sounds like a tall order, but they manage to create delicious food that combines the best of both culinary worlds of their heritages. Try dishes like Toppognochi, which is a combination of Korean rice sticks and potato gnocchi cooked in Italian tomato passata and Korean fermented chili sauce.
The Clove Club

If you want to enjoy high end food at a place that’s not fussy yet does not compromise on quality or service, this is it. Enjoy the tasting menu which will take your through sophisticated and mainly British dishes with Indian and Japanese influences that you will not forget.
