Dinerama | Shoreditch Street Food Market
Last Updated: 1st April 2019
We hereby posit that at some point in the near future you will urgently require immediate access to a gigantic day and night street food market located inside a former armoured truck depot featuring 8 cozy food shacks; 10 bars; 3 roof terraces; 1 raised, mezzanine platform; a huge, communal dining area set out over 10,000 sq feet of prime East London real estate; and 2 excellent food trucks which have EIGHT Michelin tyres between them.
When that happens, head to Dinerama: a permanent installation from the team behind Street Feast (also the proud owners of Hawker House, Giant Robot and Model Market) containing all of the above.
Upon arrival, there are only two things you’ll need to do:
1) Eat. After making your way to Shoreditch (easy) and finding Dinerama (less easy, as it’s hidden behind an unsuspecting iron door) you’ll have the opportunity to choose your dinner from 10 street food vendors serving up dishes from multiple different national cuisines. Dishes like, for example, Club Mexicana’s vegan BBQ jackfruit burritos; gourmet concoctions from Cook Love (a spin-off from Michelin-starred restaurant Pied à Terre); and the Babek Brothers’ lamb kofta, babek smoky relish, and pickled onion kebab wrap – also known as the Kim Koftashian.
House of Bamboo
2) Drink. Head to the German Sex Dungeon for whisky shots (duh); Fünkenpümper for vodka; House of Bamboo for rum cocktails and Winerama for Californian wine, before taking your drink of choice and lounging in the sun atop the open air spot that overlooks the entire market.
In winter they throw up a roof, and fill the place with heaters and real fire stoves. Wrap your hands around a steaming cup of mulled wine and penguin huddle with your friends…
…before waddling off home.
NOTE: Dinerama is open every Wednesday – Saturday from 5pm till midnight. General entry is free before 7pm, and £3 thereafter. They accept cash or card but please note they don’t take reservations, so best get in early. You can find out more on their website HERE.
