We’ve seen Dinerama, hosted by Street Feast, all over our social media pages recently – and from all we’ve been hearing, Dinerama has become one of those must go places, whether that’s to spend the whole evening or stop off and eat before your night out. Open Thurs-Sun noon til late, with food, booze, and good vibes on tap, you can soak up the lively atmosphere all weekend long.
Located on Great Eastern Street, just a stones throw away from Liverpool Street and Old Street tube stations, we came here on a Saturday to see whether the hype around Dinerama was everything we were promised and more. And we were impressed. It was buzzing when we got there, everyone eager to get their weekend off to a good start with food in their bellies.
Spread out over two floors in Shoreditch Yard, street food stalls include Yum Bun, Duck’n’Roll, Smokestak, You Doughnut, Farang and many more. For the full vendor list check out the Street Feast website. There’s also plenty of bars with mojitos and beer for the masses.
Smokestak: thick cut pork for £8 accompanied with fries and Cajun mayo for £3. Advice – don’t eat this if your on a date. It’s the kind of thing you will wolf down with both hands… and lick your fingers after! Far too good to eat nicely with a knife and fork.
Duck’n’Roll: warning: those who don’t buy from here will suffer from serious food envy. We got the crispy duck burger for £7 with ossau-iraty cheese, balsamic onions and lettuce. The duck itself was really succulent and juicy. This was my favourite meal, duck can be quite filling and salty but the balsamic onions gave it a sweet flavour I wasn’t expecting and this balanced the dish out. This is a definite recommend.
You Doughnut!: before coming to Dinerama, I was told by a friend, ‘you’ve got to try the doughnuts’, and now I know why. Bite-sized, you can get 3 for £3 or 7 for £5. Out of 2 flavours we went for the cinnamon sugar with warm salted caramel with toasted pecans. We were so happy when we found the salted caramel sauce to dip at the bottom.
Price wise, I’d heard rumours it was expensive, but was pleasantly surprised to find you could eat for under £10.
All in all, Dinerama is great. Whether your wanting somewhere lively and fun to spend your evening, or are just looking for a pit stop to line your stomach before a night out, Dinerama is go.
