The Wild Game Co review – venison Fitzrovia pop-up

Mamita Que Chorizo review – South American Shoreditch sandwiches for supper

Dinner time baguettes, ciabattas and buns Having a sandwich for dinner sounds like something only a slummy student might do, but having a steak sandwich from Mamita Que Chorizo is no second-best option. This small Shoreditch restaurant is only open in the evenings from Thursday to Saturday (perfect for chucking out time) and serves up … Continue reading
