Feeling a bit blah lately? The up and down english weather got you wishing you was on a sandy beach with crystal clear sea water as your view huh? A sweet rainbow cocktail in your hand with great succulent flavours for dinner? Well keep dreaming or start booking I say! Lol I can’t give you the perfect beach holiday, however I can give you a real tasty meal idea for dinner.
If it’s caribbean food your after look no further – i got you covered. I recently visited Cottons Rhum Shack in Shoreditch, Box Park and my god was it a treat. Now, I must be brutally honest here, i’m not one for caribbean restaurants because no restaurant or person can cook better than good ol’ Mumma and Pups but I was pleasantly surprised when visiting this cute spot. Everything I ordered was perfect I actually have no faults for this review. The flavours were all there, the presentation was up to scratch and it did reflect real caribbean culture. The value for money was another great factor and also between certain hours you can get two cocktails for the price of one AND an added bonus is that the two cocktails do not have to be the same, don’t you just hate when that is the catch!

Overall great atmosphere with great food located in a busy part of London with lot’s to do afterwards, local bars and clubs literally a stone throw away. This could be perfect for lunch, dinner with the girls or a romantic dinner for two – i’ll defo be coming back and i’m give this one a 9/10 recommendation
