Considered as the world’s first pop-up mall, the Cottons Rhum Shack (Shoreditch) is a place to be reckoned with. It is located at the upper floor of the Box Park which is literally constructed out of stacked shipping containers. It has the same old simple signs like the other stores, but once inside, you’ll find a whole new environment.

The Cottons Rhum Shack (Shoreditch) is a Caribbean restaurant/beach bar that will gives a relax ambiance and service that’s relaxed and clean while being unobtrusive and very much efficient all at the same time. But this place is not famous for their hospitable refuge, but for their impressive menu and over three hundred rums that you can choose from.

I personally liked their menu because it gives a wide variety of meals to choose from. Their lunch menu is filled with starters, barbeque skewers, burgers and wraps, stews and curries and a whole jerk collection. My companion and I decided to try their Cotton platter which costs 18.50.

The whole mixture of flavours, which was both sweet and spicy, was seasoned to perfection. All the ingredients were cooked the way we wanted it, and it definitely exceed our expectations. If you’re looking for a quick escape in the busy streets of London, then this is definitely the best place to go.

Next, I chose their Rass Berry Special, which was a mixture of lime, mint, raspberry puree and an Appleton special. The drink was also really great because the tropical fruit flavour was at the right balance and I definitely felt the explosion of flavours. The Cottons Rhum Shack (Shoreditch) really did brainstorm on their menu because it was clear to see that everyone in the restaurant and bar were enjoying their own meals and drinks.

With their hundreds of drinks to choose from and the excellent meals that they offer, it’s no wonder that a lot of people in London drive out to this place just to experience a Caribbean cuisine. I especially loved the ambiance in their restaurant because you can easily forget that you’re in a different country.

One thing I noticed is that they have an outside area where you can see long benches and tables, but is really dependent on the weather. When it’s shiny, it’s a great place to hand out, but when it starts to get dark and rainy, you’ll often regret that you chose to sit in that place.

Overall, the Cottons Rhum Shack (Shoreditch) in London is one of the best places that you can go to if you’re looking for a different style in dining. The whole environment of their place is carefully well-planned to suit the meals and drinks that they were offering. Plus, the food that they are serving will definitely put a mark in your brain because of its perfect balance of tastes.
