Rochelle Canteen, Arnold Circus, E2

Today was a good day, we started off at the Tate Modern to see the new Georgia O’Keefe exhibition, a stroll over the Millenium bridge and hop and skip later we found ourselves in Arnold Circus in East London. This was a a long planned Friday afternoon off work with my favourite dining companion, Ali. I’ve wanted to go to Rochelle canteen for a long time.

We were greeted warmly and started with bread and delicious olives. The restaurant doesn’t have a licence and so make sure to bring your own wine.


I started with salt cod brandade with a soft boiled egg and Ali had sprouting broccoli. Really rather delicious.The picture doesn’t really do it justice. It was creamy and moreish, I could eat it all over again right now.


We both chose the lemon sole with capers, parsley and brown butter with some me kale. It was delicious and here it is…


The staff were great and although it is a not a lot of space there were lots of groups from work, people celebrating and even some solo diners.

It would be a great place for a party. The gardens are still looking great in October, but I would love to come back in spring and summer to see what it is like.
