Bull in a China Shop

Occupying a Dickensian fronted pub in Shoreditch is Bull in a China Shop, a new all-day restaurant and whisky bar with an intriguing hint of the Orient.

Bull in a China Shop is the second project from brothers Stephen and Simon Chan, owners of the ever-popular The Drunken Monkey. Open from breakfast to dinner, visitors can expect a menu of Chinese spiced, whisky glazed rotisserie chicken, black charcoal brioche buns, superfood salads and a host of breakfast bao buns, smoothies and sweet and savoury congee for early risers. The drinks list takes a similar approach with a Japanese whiskies and Orient-inspired cocktails sitting alongside traditional favourites. The design concept more than matches the interesting menus.  Created by Sara Lewin (of Cereal Killer Café fame) , the décor is very much ‘old curiosities' with a hint of Tretchikoffs ‘Green Lady' played out with a collection of medicine bottles, and bone china ornaments to a backdrop of textured whitewashed walls.  Adding to the drama of the venue is the an eye-catching mural of a series of ghostly male figures by acclaimed Spanish street artist Borondo. www.bullinachinashop.london
