Burdock

OPENED October 11th, 2016

Burdock has just opened on the ground floor of the Montcalm Royal London House Hotel in East London.

In a city full of creatives and self-employed talents, lounging and networking has become second nature for many and Burdock is a doozy for both. Perfect for City/Shoreditch hangouts, the new café is a place where you meet, drink, dine and mingle. If you’re in the area, be sure to check out the other recent restaurant and bar openings in East London.

Consistent with the East London vibe, the spacious and airy café is heavily decorated in brassy interior décor with exposed raw brick walls. The 2,000 square foot bar features 4 overhanging tank beers each with a rotating guest craft ale. Decorated in earthy tone with wooden wall and soft leather sofas, and white marble tables and green armchairs. Accommodate up to 100 people, the café has lounging sofas, dining tables and bar area with high stools – a section for every type of visitors.

As part of the ETM group, known for its 11 pubs and restaurants across central London, Burdock is a mixture of smart City gastro pub meets contemporary brasserie. Serving British small dishes and sharing dishes, the all day menu is available everyday. If you’re only feeling peckish, there are snacks like Kentucky fried skate wings and lobster tacos.

After something a little more healthy, go for salad jars such as ‘Superfood Session’ (Quinoa, avocado, kale, matcha and mixed beans) and ‘Tokyo-Yo’ (Chilli chicken, soba noodles, avocado and Asian herbs). Small plates like octopus, potato with paprika or yellow fin tartare with sesame when you want something lighter. And if you are starving? Go for a double cheeseburger with BBQ onions or Brixham hake served with cured ham and anchovy.

You might also want to check out the Cauliflower Croque Monsieur or Braised shortrib Reuben sub sandwiches too. Don’t forget the sundaes and fresh shakes in the dessert section. Burdock also offers a wide selection of wine and drinks, and a dedicated fresh juice bar for the healthy ones.

Our interactive city map tracks all the top new restaurant openings throughout London; check back every week for updates.
