  • Claw residency comes to Dalston's Three Compasses for the winter


    This rather fine looking shellfish dish is the crab burger from Claw. And if just gazing at that photo makes you fancy it half as much as we do right now, you'll be wanting to know that the streetfood folk behind it have just taken residency at The Three Compasses in Dalston.

    Kensington Place has recently had a bit of a refurb and now they're adding something new - a pop up chippy. The food, as befits its location, is certainly more upmarket than most fish and chip shops.

    For instance, on the menu will be:

    • Lobster Thermi-Bun, a savoury doughnut filled with lobster thermidor sauce (pictured).
