The Diner Shoreditch @ Curtain Road, Shoreditch

The Diner ShoreditchThe Diner Shoreditch

Shoreditch(ショーディッチ)・Curtain Roadにあるアメリカンスタイル・ダイナー、その名も「THE DINER」。Shoreditch以外に、SOHO、Angel、Camden、Kensal Riseにも店がある。50年代風インテリアに、ロックが流れる店内では、典型的なアメリカン・カジュアルフードが食べられる。昔からハンバーガーやホットドッグが好物だった私は、今でも時々「ハンバーガー食べたい」衝動に駆られる。健康オタクのMは今は「ヘルシー」バーガーにしか行かないが、私はジャンクで脂ぎったハンバーガーの方が本当は好みだ。アメリカにいた頃は、よくバーガーキングのWhoperワッパー)を頬張っていたが、さすがに最近は自分の歳を考えて、大手チェーン系不健康ハンバーガーは控えている。このTHE DINERのは、私の好きな脂ぎったハンバーガーだったが、Mは脂っぽすぎてあんまり好きじゃない、と言う。私はハンバーガーはおいしいと思ったけど、ホットドッグは×(バツ)。ソーセージもパンもふにゃふにゃ、手に持って食べていたら崩れてきた。グリルしたオニオンは甘くて美味しかったけど、たくさん入れ過ぎ。一口食べる毎にボロボロとこぼれ落ちる。でもTime Outのお薦めは、パンケーキやオムレツ等のall-day breakfast類だそう。Angelにも最近新しく出来たので、今度試してみよう。でも、Time Outのレストラン評にはずいぶん裏切られているから、ちょっと半信半疑だけれど。

THE DINER on Curtain Road in Shoureditch is an old-school American style diner. Other than Shoreditch, there have diners in SOHO, Angel, Camden and Kensal Rise as well. In THE DINER, decorated in 50’s style and playing Rock’n Roll loud, you can find typical American comfort foods on their menu. I’ve been a big fun of a hamburger and a hotdog since I was child, and still have an craze for hamburger sometimes. Health fanatic M eats only ‘healthy’ burger, but I prefer a junk and fatty burger. I went to Burger King regularly and crammed Whoper into my mouth when I was in US, but now considering my age, I try to avoid ‘unhealthy’ big burger chains. Hamburgers at THE DINER was the kind I like, greasy and juicy, but M didn’t like it because of its greasiness. I like their burger, but their hotdog was ‘F’. Sausage and the bun was too soft and the bun collapsed in my hand. Grilled onions was sweet and tender, but there were too much of them and fell down at every bite. The Time Out recommended their all-day breakfast, like pancakes or omelette – I can give a try at the newly opened diner in Angel. But I am not sure if I can trust Time Out restaurant reviews, as we had many disappointments from the places they recommended in the past…
