Top 5 Post-Run Shoreditch Eats
I love an early morning run, but it’s hard to drag anyone with you at 6:30am and after mile upon mile of making conversation with yourself, well, frankly, it can get a little boring. I’m all for making running a social event, which is why I love an evening run, followed by dinner. When you can gorge yourself on tasty grub with your mates afterwards, suddenly the whole thing is more appealing.
Here are my top five post-run Shoreditch faves:
46 Hoxton Square
Oh you thought runners were all healthy? Wrong! Sometimes a girl just needs a burger, you know what I’m sayin’? Byron is a hot contender for the best burger in town. Plus, the staff are super sweet and don’t freak out when we show up ten minutes before closing demanding meat.
56 Shoreditch High St
Yum. Just yum. Plus, I love any dining establishment where I can actually see what’s going on in the kitchen. One day I’ll have one of those brick pizza ovens in my house. One day, my friends.
Box Park, Shoreditch High Street
East Londoners may be familiar with the main Namo restaurant in Victoria Park. Hop Namo in Box Park is like its little sister. Really nice Vietnamese cuisine in a lovely set up, it’s a really nice environment for a post-run chill out. Beware of the spring rolls though – those bad boys are addictive.
128 – 130 Curtain Rd
Again, yeah, not exactly the healthiest foods but hey, we’ve gotta refuel after burning off like, a zillion calories, right?! Friendly staff, awesome milkshakes and an eclectic mix of music blaring through the speakers, keep those post-run endorphins flowing.
319 Old St
Sure, Busaba is fairly pedestrian as restaurants go, but like I said, I’m all about making running a social event and those big tables at Busaba are perfect for cramming nine or 10 sweaty, hungry runners around for post-run analysis.
