Dinerma, Streat Feast – www.streatfeast.com
19 Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3EJ
I can’t explain how much I love visiting street-style food markets for dinner (or any meal to be fair but I’ve only ever gone to this kinda thing at night!). Between the choice of food and the almost-guaranteed great atmosphere there’s just no going wrong. So today I’m posting some snaps from Dinerama in Shoreditch. Dinerama is one of the four food markets under the Streat Feast London umbrella. Dinerama is in Shoreditch, Hawker House in Southwark, Model Market in Lewisham and Dalston Yard in Dalston.
After grabbing a beer at the main bar we spent some time milling around to see what was on offer. I settled for some buttermilk chicken tacos from Breddo’s Tacos. Rick opted for the Bajan-inspired rotisserie chicken from Birdbox. Birdbox portions were great for the cost so if you’re hungry I’d recommend. It was delicious and tender and bursting with flavour. The soft-shell tacos were also amazing, and presented a bit more delicately than the Birdbox. The fried chicken was great, and the combination of habanero aioli and lime was just perfect.
I had a couple of things to eat which I didn’t photograph due to excitement; we had some steamed buns (one pork, one chicken) from Yum Bun and some salted caramel mini doughnuts from You Doughnut! Both of which were beaut. The buns were steamed to perfection with the right amount of filling. One too many rums meant much excitement over getting some doughnuts “for the road.”
What you’ve got at Dinerama is a well-curated selection of food, ranging from a light snack to a full-blown three course meal. There is literally something here for everyone, including six bars to wash it all down, with something to suit any palette (my personal fav being Dick’s Magic Tiki Bar). Expert in craft beers? Wine lover? Dinerama have you all accounted for.
Dinerama is such a great idea and I wish we had some kind of similar set up in Glasgow. According to the website it’s free to enter until 7pm, and after this there’s a £3 entry fee. I get the vibes it’s more of a socialising/drinking situation as the sun goes down. I’m not 100% sure on the dates but I get the impression they’re open for the rest of the summer months. So get yourself down here between Thursday-Sunday for some drinks and food, and let me know what you thought.
