CLUB MEXICANA, DINERAMA, SHOREDITCH

 

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! That’s the sound of me FINALLY completing my Club Mexicana locations bingo card.

On the weekend I stopped by Dinerama in Shoreditch to get my long overdue Vegan Mexican fix. Forgive me Father, for I think it has been SEVEN months since my last Club Mexicana!! That is the longest I have ever gone without Club Mex since they opened. WHY oh why did I ever move out of London *shakes fist at sky*

The incredible achievement of completing my Club Mexicana locations bingo card was overshadowed by an even bigger milestone. This was my Mum’s first ever Club Mexicana!

Almost as exciting as when I took my Sister for her first Club Mexicana last Summer in Camden. Taking her first bite of Tofish Taco, dripping chimichurri sauce straight onto my Nephew’s head as he napped in his baby bjorn. This is actually what’s known as a Vegan baptism.

Anyway, Mum LOVED it (of course) and she crowned the Chikn Wings as her favourite dish.

I think we can all agree on what the two main food groups are. I can practically hear you screaming at me “YEAH WE KNOW JEN, YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO SAY IT”, it’s just so obvious that it barely needs stating. The two main food groups are Pizza.

There’s the deep pan, greasy, doughy, delivery style that we get from the likes of Papa Johns and Pizza Hut. And then there’s the thin base, sourdough, practically healthy tasting (but not in a bad way) style that we get from fancy places like Franco Manca and your local lil Italian restaurant.

But I’m here today, to tell you about the third food group I’ve discovered. It’s Pizza, obviously. The Pizza at Voodoo Ray’s is so good that it’s busted out into a food group all of it’s own.

I’d like to boldly declare that Voodoo Ray’s is the best pizza you can get in London. No wait, the whole of the UK. And considering they only have one Vegan option on the permanent menu that is quite the statement from me!

Their pizza is thin, it’s crispy, it’s salty, it’s the perfect level of oily and the toppings are UTTER PERFECTION.

The Queen Vegan on the permanent menu has artichoke hearts, green olives, sun-blush tomatoes, red onion, tomato sauce and green sauce (think Vegan Pesto).

It is an absolute bargain at £4 per slice and their frozen margarita’s are incredible so you’ll want five of those too.

Voodoo Ray’s was started in 2012 after a visit to NYC they decided they wanted to bring the pizza by the slice culture to the UK as it hadn’t been done before. Their name Voodoo Ray’s is a nod to the famous New York pizza joint Ray’s as well as Voodoo Ray which is a favourite record of theirs.

The flagship branch on Dalston High Street is gorgeous and in 2015 they opened up at Box Park in Shoreditch and in 2016 in Camden Market.

Voodoo Ray’s even offer a rewards scheme called Slice Club so you can get a free slice after every 7 bought. Make sure you sign up and get your money’s worth!
