London’s Red Dog Saloon Shoreditch branch is a bit of a foodie favourite for lovers of damn fine southern hospitality. Specialising in southern American barbecue, this Shoreditch Square restaurant and bar is rustic, authentic and no-frills. Rather, the focus here (and at the other Red Dog branches) is on good food and good vibes, which suits us down to a tee. Famous for smoking premium meats over hickory and mesquite and serving them in true southern style – with loads of sauces, sides and drinks – this is a must if you like your meat succulent, tender and full of flavour. You’ll also find burgers, fried chicken and loaded fries, so no matter what you’re craving Red Dog Saloon Shoreditch has got you covered. It’s popular for good reason though so reservations are essential to avoid disappointment.
