Pork Roast at Dragon Bar


After traipsing round the Shoreditch area continually arriving at pubs ten minutes after the kitchen had closed, a mirage outside an establishment painted entirely black shimmered in the distance: "Roasts served until 10pm".

Despite being on the corner of Shoreditch High Street and Rivington Street, Dragon Bar is easy to miss. Once inside it has a warm and friendly atmosphere with staff to match. The interior has a lackadaisical charm combining modern art with mismatched vintage furniture.

The summer roast menu was singular, pork, but they serve a full menu - the owner strongly recommended the fish and chips with prices around the 10/15 mark. The drinks menu is brimming with cocktails with a wine and beer option for the less adventurous.

The roast arrived quickly and was imaginative in its construction. Accompanying the pork was braised fennel, roast new potatoes and a parmesan and peanut crust placed precariously on top of the pile. The flavours worked well together with the fresh and crisp taste of the fennel complemented the salty flavours of both the pork and Parmesan crust.

All that said, I would prefer if none of you went for a Sunday roast, as I'd like to be able to find a seat quickly again.
