Anyone obsessed with rustic textures or anything with a Kinfolk aesthetic will be well pleased with this intimate pizza place. With communal whitewashed timber-tables and Scandi-inspired interiors, this is an inspired choice in East London. The crust here is thin and the toppings are as innovative as the decor, with choices like the Fico pizza: a melange of goat’s cheese, fig-and-olive tapenade, fennel, red onion, capers, thyme and Parma ham topped with salad leaves, parmesan and balsamic cream. Pizza is their forte – so don’t expect many other choices on the menu.
Shoreditch is the ultimate in East London hipster-cool. Buildings are covered with impressive graffiti art; streets are frequented by pretty young things shooting scenes for music videos and indie films; and the eating, drinking and boutique shopping is all about independent owners rather than chain brands. Catch the overground train to Shoreditch High Street or, for the tube, get off at either Liverpool Street (five-minute walk) or Old Street (15-minute walk).
