A very british food and one of my top 5 comfort foods (particularly when hung over), beans on toast is a classic dish. Dead simple, delicious and utterly unpretentious.
Heinz have opened a temporary “It has to be Heinz” cafe. It’s open from 7am-3pm for the next couple of days (closing Thursday 14th) on Shoreditch Highstreet (map). I popped down at lunchtime today to give it a go.
The menu is pretty simple, there’s beans on toast with white bread, beans on toast with brown bread, beans on toast with tea or beans on toast with coffee. Even the bill is simple, there’s a recommend donation of 50p that goes to Help a London Child.
The food is simple, delicious and perfect for a cold winter day. If you can make it before it shuts, only 2 days to go now, i’d really recommend it. Obviously the beans are Heinz and the place is decked out in their branding and products, but it’s not too over the top, it’s actually quite nice. Plus it is for charity and can’t get a cheaper than a 50p lunch round here.
