Remember the old bike shed at school? Well it was nothing like this one, I assure you! You’ll find Rochelle Canteen nestled away in this Victorian-era school building right besides the old playground in East London.
Ring the buzzer to enter and inside you’ll find a sleek dining room, almost Scandi in its minimal design. The simplicity doesn’t stop there; it’s apparent throughout the seasonal British menu. Ingredients are left to speak for themselves, with no fancy presentation or cheffy twists. The Canteen is open only on schooldays, and the owners here sure will teach you a thing or two about just how good simple modern, British dishes can be. You can also bring your own bottle of booze too for a fiver!
Rochelle School, Arnold Circus, E2 7ES
