No longer merely a warehouse graveyard, Hackney Wick is fast becoming the Shoreditch of latter years; creative, unassuming and infinitely fun.
This weekend my girlfriends and I cycled down to one of Hackney’s new gems; Crate, a pizzeria and brewery conveniently perched on the edge of the Canal.
And boy, were the pizza’s good.
Sweet potato on pizza, topped with stilton and walnut = food porn at it’s finest.
Crate’s the perfect spot to enjoy the dwindling summer evenings with a bottle of rose and friends. Just make sure to head down early and nab one of the canal-side benches for some sunset action!
