Shoreditch first opened its door in May 2015 in Kennedy Town.  Shoreditch is a famous trendy neighbourhood in UK, so inevitably they serve British food here.  You will find most British pub food here such as scotch eggs, pies, steaks etc.

The sweetcorn soup was so creamy an smooth, great for a cold winter day.  The garden salad was extremely fresh and it is the first time I see asparagus being used in a salad, which tells us Shoreditch gives the best to their customers.   I loved my pork belly, came in a reasonable portion with the skin so crispy.  I really enjoyed the roasted carrots,  whatever they did to them, it was superbly done.  The carrots tasted extremely delicious and I am not a carrot person.  The parsnip puree is something different to the usual mash potato and with just the right amount of cider sauce.  Being only 6oz, the steak was really tiny, but it was cooked just right.  Medium on the inside and beautifully char-grilled on the outside.  The mashed potatoes were extremely fluffy and buttery with the juicy grilled tomatoes.

First of all, the price for a lunch set is very reasonable, it ranges from 98 hkd to 138 hkd which includes an amuse bouche, a starter, a main and a drink.  The options for drinks does not include tea or coffee which is really rare, however you can choose soft drinks or juices.  The menu selections are mostly British pub food, however they are top notch classy pub food with great presentations and uses great quality ingredients.  The food exceeded all my expectations, furthermore the presentations definitely deserves a mention.  For the same priceing lunch menu in Central, you will not get anything well presented.  I do regret not visiting here sooner, as I have walked pass this restaurant over a hundred time and everytime I do there are many diners.  Shoreditch is really underrated from the mainstream media, it has lots of potential so hopefully they will survive for many years to come.

Would I go back again? Yes for the scotch egg or lunch
