Shaking beef, coconut rice, wonton, dry seaweed, crispy spring rolls... Your taste buds will be celebrating if you visit
Viet Hoa for a dinner. Unlike other Vietnamese restaurants in the area that have a home feel to them and enforce BYOB policy, Viet Hoa's concept is rather high end and it is reflected in its interior design and architecture (all provided by
Vonsung) as well as in their choice of food that is completely organic. Ultra modern interior, great WiFi and food that leaves one speechless. For your information, they do delivery as well.
Two course dinner for two £30.Mon-Fri: 5.30-11.30PM, Sat-Sun: 12.30-11.30PM. Viet Hoa Cafe and Mess. 70-72 Kingsland Road, E2 8DP
Hidden Local Treasure
As you walk into the place, you feel being vacuumed into a different universe.
The Bridge is indeed a local treasure of comfort and charm due to its lush victorian neoclassical decor. If you are there for a late coffee, you may enjoy it on the ground floor cafe with a gigantic old-school polished coffee maker immediate of the entrance. And if you are there for a drink, cozy little rooms upstairs have a soothing atmosphere for an intimate get-together with closest friends. The Bridge is definitely much more than one expects! 15 Kingsland Road, E2 8AA
Cocktails, Flambees and Live Music
In Catch you will find Alsatian flambees and
mouth-watering cokctails, as well as you can still expect club nights and live music, but from Catch you can expect much more, house rum Mai Thai, Brazilian Caiperinha with a Jamaican twist and a constant atmosphere of celebration! They also have two for one happy hour, so pop in for some happy time. 22 Kingsland Road, E2 8DA
Being all about that pop-up dining, I had a chance to visit Monikers back in September for the three week long project,
Talking Peace at Conflict Kitchen. Three fantastic chefs were bringing to life flavours of Jordan and Peru along with stories of conflict and culture. However, what struck me the most was
eton mess! Strawberries, pieces of meringue and cream in combination turn simply into an art piece. If you don't have a chance to try Moniker-style eton mess, make your own! 16 Hoxton Square, N1 6NT
VICE House Party
I am assuming you love hip young things. Also, I am assuming you already follow VICE, a magazine known for endorsing modish things of aftertomorrow. They are hosting another event, but this time it is a
VICE House Party with a free bar tab first come first served. What makes this event even more special is that it is hosted at
The Old Blue Last, where Arctic Monkeys were having their intimate gigs before they became a thing. House party will be taking place across all three floors with live bands, DJs and screening of the latest VICE documentary, Love Industries. Free Entry.
