Shoreditch… A Place With A Flair!


I visited Shoreditch with my friend Monika. I rarely visit the neighbourhood, as I spend most of my time in Central London. However, it was the day to have a change of scenery and to enjoy Shoreditch… A Place With A Flair!


Hello! Shoreditch 🙂



Shoreditch High Street Station


Boxpark, just by Shoreditch High Street Station, has shops and restaurants.



We thought of Shoreditch as a funky place with lots of artistic graffiti around on walls or on the building. It was basically a large painting ground and the buildings and walls are its canvas. I totally love it there!





My friend Monika was kind to join me in Shoreditch.





While we carried on walking around the area, it was time for some well-deserved lunch. Monika suggested a really good burger restaurant called “Patty & Bun,” along Redchurch St. Without sounding like I’m advertising them or anything (My opinion is solely based on my personal experience and not from Patty & Bun), but I have tried one of the best burgers that I can ever think of! It was just heaven to the taste buds! (And I Mean It!!!). I opted for the Ari Gold Cheeseburger that had Beef patty, Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Pickled onions, Ketchup, Smokey P&B mayo, Brioche that came with Chips with Rosemary salt and with Roast Chicken Mayo & Chicken Skin Salt. Need I say more?… It was the best lunch I had and I would like to thank Monika for my lunch! Thinking of what I had, I get hungry for it over and over!

Here’s the rest of what’s on their menu here. 


I like the ambience of their Burger restaurant. It was cosy, comfortable, and really suits the Shoreditch atmosphere as well. Their staff, William was great. So the Service and really good burger (Not to mention the Chips!) made our dining experience worthwhile!

After a hearty burger lunch, we made our way to Brick Lane. Now, that’s where all the fun is! As we walked to Shoreditch station, I had to make a quick stop to grab a cup of tea from this guy who used his Smart car as a mini coffee shop stall. The name of his Portable coffee shop is “A Man And His Cat Coffee.”  So If you ever see a guy in a Smart car converted into a Coffee shop stall in Shoreditch station, then you’ll know who I’m talking about. You can follow him on his Instagram account: #aManAndHisCatCoffee and on his Twitter:

Brick Lane

So I and Monika finally made it to Brick Lane. It was my First there, and I must say, it had that Camden vibe to it, but with that East London flair, which I like. I used to live in East London until Three years ago, and I did like it there. It’s got that classic, hip and artsy vibe to it. Brick Lane had a twist and mix of culture and quirks to it. I and Monika walked the entire Brick Lane to see what it had to offer.




Monika found something interesting up there!




The whole street is a stretch of Shops selling all sorts from Antiques, to Vegan-friendly chocolates, Souvenir shops. It had lots of cafe’s and also the restaurant’s around. This is where you also find the Cereal Killer Cafe, which I will be featuring on my future blog post. It was buzzing and bustling place.


Dark Sugars Chocolates does chocolates that Vegans would love.


Cereal Killer Cafe. Will be blogging about this place soon! 😉



To the other side, you can find Back Lane Market, where you find collections of hand made shirts (Which I like), jewellery, belts and even bath bombs that are similar to Lush. There’s also an indoor area where there are different street food from various regions of the world. From Mexican to Indian to Oriental/Asian. It was a United Nations of food. There’s also vintage shops and exhibitions. Definitely a very Indie and interesting vibe around, which we loved.




I love these shirts!






Overall, our visit to Shoreditch was amazing! I love how quirky Shoreditch is and what it has to offer fellow Londoners and visitors to the neighbourhood. You don’t have to be hip, quirky or wacky to enjoy Shoreditch. Just have fun and enjoy what it has to offer. Will I be going back there? Definitely! And on my next visit, I will get to blog more about Cafes and shops which may be interesting to you readers. It definitely is a place with a Flair!

I have never been to Shoreditch but it looks interesting. I found this post looking for artistic graffiti . The pictures are stunning. We have areas in Glasgow with artistic graffiti and often on Glasgow Style Mile you will find artists doing artwork on the pavements. Does that happen in Shoreditch? I just love it. By the way,being a burger lover I would head straight for “Patty & Bun,”, the pictures you shot are really inviting..
