At Giant Robot, the people behind Dinerama have done a great job of bringing Shoreditch cool to the Docklands. There’s a short but sweet list of vendors, like fried chicken crew Thunderbird and bao specialists Yum Bun, as well as solid drinks and a big bar area. It’s an excellent spot to visit for a casual post-work dinner and drinks, especially if you work nearby.
