Boxpark pop up mall, Shoreditch

Boxpark, supposedly the world’s first pop up mall made entirely from shipping containers, has arrived in Shoreditch. I work just around the corner from this new phenomenon, and have been enjoying the strange scent of freshly laundered fabric (don’t ask me why Boxpark smells like Fairy non-bio detergent gone crazy, it just does) wafting through the air as I walk down Bethnal Green Road.

The lower (ground level) section of the mall is mainly devoted to brands such as Calvin Klein, Irregular Choice, Onepiece and Nike, while the upper level has got large seating areas which will be lovely in the summer, and plenty of familiar foodie names like Frae Frozen Yogurt and Crussh. My favourite find by far, however, is the cafe Foxcroft & Ginger at the Shoreditch High Street end of the complex on the upper level, which I first heard about through Emerald Street. Not only do they serve all their hot drinks in an assortment of pretty, vintage cups and saucers, but they also happen to make the most delicious french toast I’ve ever tasted. (It’s got a honey and mustard sauce addition, which really works.) Most definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
