Serving porridge-based breakfasts and risotto-style lunches, the Porridge Cafe has been a pop-up success in the heart of hipster Shoreditch. With a weekly menu online lucky locals (like me!) are able to plan their weekly grain intake.
Takeaway or eat in on the wooden benches, and even though the pots are a bit steep at upwards of £4, I can't fault the really inventive flavour combinations. From polenta for breakfast with pear, fig puree and vanilla, and traditional rolled oats with raspberry peach and almond; to risotto, buckwheat or quinoa for lunch matched with meat, veggies, cheese and herbs - both times I was left wanting more.
I was so excited to have breakfast from @porridge_cafe_london on it's opening day this morning. And its blueberry, ginger and cashew butter porridge didn't disappoint. A tad pricey at £4.50 and no price difference for sit in/takeaway but a substantial size pot filled with goodness to start the week. #porridgecafe #porridge #breakfastatyourdesk #breakfast #breakfastblog #london #eastlondon #londonbreakfast #londonfood #londonfoodie #foodie #foodpic #foodblog #foodblogger
But it closes at the weekend (although the cafe told me it hopes to pop-up elsewhere in London soon!), so if you are a fan of oats and grains head over there before March 29.
