There’s nothing quite like that feeling of finding a tenner in the back pocket of your favourite pair of jeans. The east London outpost of Rok comes close though. Down at the dead quiet end of the neighbourhood that everyone loves to hate, Shoreditch, this small but mighty restaurant has been doing Nordic nouveau cuisine before pretty much anyone else in London. Lots of super fresh veg, fish, and fired up meat is served in a simple but very tasty way. After a little while, you’ll soon come to realise that every ‘hot new spot’ in Shoreditch is basically the slightly louder, obnoxious cousin of Rok. Lunch has a short menu of small plates that will satisfy both the biggest and most vegetarian of appetites. The evening menu expands out to demonstrate what they can do with a bit of meat and a flame grill, and it turns out what they can do tastes very, very good.
