SquareMeal Review of
Salvation In Noodles
Dalston’s slurpers can find some salvation in this joint dreamed up by Colin Tu (formerly part of the Big Dirty Burger operation). SIN aims to give westernised Vietnamese food an authentic spin,
with ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ noodles topping the bill – perhaps bun bo hue (beef brisket in hot and spicy lemongrass soup) or bun neu with crab, prawns and pork belly. There are also a handful of‘social’
street-food small plates for sharing, such as crispy chicken wings tossed in fish sauce with crispy garlic or crunchy papaya with deep-fried anchovies and lotus-root crisps. On the drinks front,
the wine list is in the hands of the guys from Borough Wines, beers are from Hackney-based Crate Brewery and there’s locally made Dalston Cola too.
