Rok Shoreditch – Solo Excursion

Rok is a smokehouse that perfectly blends Northern Europe (predominantly Scandinavian) barbeque techniques with British meat. If that description wets your appetite even an inch, you’d enjoy Rok.

The Breakfast Club

This past Sunday Shiima and I went for breakfast at the relatively new The Breakfast Club in Hackney Wick – actually, it’s very much in Stratford, the new gentrified Stratford … go ahead and call it “New Stratford”. I came across The Breakfast Club on Instagram, I saw a picture of the pancake and I…
