When the Belfast-born brothers behind Cereal Killer Cafe opened their shop on Brick Lane last year they had to defend themselves against the country’s media as the duo inadvertently became poster boys for the pros and cons urban gentrification. We’re sure the Porridge Cafe pop-up is hoping for a different outcome when they launch in Shoreditch’s Paul Street on 2 March.
The temporary restaurant will have a rotating menu of 11 different grains including buckwheat and quinoa, with toppings such as persimmon compote, chia seeds, papaya, agave nectar. Traditional toppings will also be offered. Coconut and almond milk bases will be available as well as dairy milks, and at lunchtime diners can try savoury porridges with red velvet beetroot spelt, feta and capers topped with a poached egg.
Serving Square Mile coffee, Porridge Cafe will open 7 am-6 pm seven days a week, sit in or take away. For more information contact Nik Williamson: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07736 670 367.
