You may recall a while ago, us mentioning an Aussie-inspired place called Tuck Shop opening in Shoreditch. Well things went pretty quite for a bit, but now the project is all go again.
"We have launched our first site fronting White Rabbit Studios," Magnus Reid (who's also head chef at critically acclaimed The Rooftop Café in London Bridge) told Hot Dinners. "The cafe offers the studios and Shoreditch community and fresh, healthy, exciting and affordable option for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea." And, if you're looking for private hire, the space can also be taken for functions, parties and serviced meetings.
So what sort of things'll be on the menu? Well the coffee is by Alchemy, and you can start your day with eggs, toast and tomato chutney for a fiver or herb and tomato quinoa, poached eggs for £6. Just right for a winter's day is the courgette, pea, mint and goats curd soup (£4) while a retro Gala pie, pickles and mustard is also £4.
Tuckshop opens on 2 November at 471-473 The Arches, Dereham Place, London EC2A 3HJ.
