Alternative Xmas Grub

Fed up with stuffing yourself with traditional Christmas meals throughout the festive period? Get inspired and head to Shish before Christmas. The Turkish eatery, which also has a sister restaurant in Hoxton, has created a special Christmas menu inspired by the Silk Road, the ancient trade and communication route stretching from China through to Rome, connecting the East to the West. The menu includes pumpkin soup, hummus with ground lamb & Scotch sirloin, onion & aubergine shish. The quince tatin with Christmas pudding ice cream makes a good replacement for the traditional Christmas pud.
