Cottons Shoreditch Review

Cottons Shoreditch is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things to know about Cottons Curtain Road:

1)  If you don't have the budget for a Caribbean holiday, or suffer from lilapsophobia, you can always get the infectious tiki shack vibe by paying a visit to the most exotic corner of Curtain Road is Shoreditch, where Cottons is based.

2)  Full marks for effort in attempting to transport you to the tropical islands with their wall murals of Caribbean life and beach scenery. There’s also a pair of paddles on the wall, plus other odd bits of memorabilia, in case you still hadn’t guessed the cuisine they’re offering once you've sat down (by the way, it’s Caribbean!).

3)  You will soon realise that those who originate from the Caribbean and the clientele of Shoreditch are readily interchangeable. There are hip hair buns aplenty, and the clothing of choice appears to have a laissez-faire attitude.

4)  Pina coladas and rum punches expectantly play prominent roles on their drinks menu but even their wines - such as the crisp 2016 Mesta Verdejo - gives off a chilled, relaxed vibe with refreshing, lemongrass and peppery notes.

5)  You might not think vegetation is a strong suit from an island nation, but here they manage to dig out enough healthy, leafy vegetables to create crunchy, moreish spring rolls with appetising sweet chilli sauce.

6)  You might expect more crayfish and lobster when you think of Caribbean culture. But be quick; they may be in short supply for their mac ‘n’ cheese offering; the creamy, inviting, flavoursome herb-crumb top hiding delicate threads of crustacean meat.

7)  You can't escape this island experience without some jerk sauce extravaganza; if you order their mixed meat platter, you soon realise it's a versatile sauce that works just as well on pork ribs, lamb chops or chicken wings.

8)  Plantains are their version of the potatoes; omnipresent in their savoury dishes. It's firm, starchy and adds a hint of sweetness to their heavier dishes.

9)  OK, original desserts are hard to find in most Caribbean menus, so here they add rum to literally everything. A French chocolate fondant is topped with rum ‘n’ raisin ice cream.

10) With relatively generous portion sizes, this is one tropical holiday you can afford to partake in on a regular basis, and it makes for an unconventional stop-off before you hit the Shoreditch bars and clubs with your pals.
