Pho House

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

"It was in Hoxton in 1605 that Lord Monteagle received a letter exposing Guy Fawkes's gunpowder plot."

Shoreditch's equally trendy neighbour, Hoxton has a well established arts and entertainment scene.

Nick Batten

Shoreditch is to London now, what King's Road was in the '60s.
