This Shoreditch-based South American pop-up, housed in the Belcourt Cafe, specialises in the art of 'asados', a grilling technique said to lock in taste and tenderness. The result is three unforgettable sandwiches: the El 10 Steak Sandwich (grain fed prime bavette seak on ciabatta bread with roast red pepper and homemade chimi-churri sauce); the El Lomito (spiced pork shoulder, thinly sliced and heavily layered on a brioche bun with mustard mayo); and the El Chori (South American chorizo on a French baguette with roast red peper and homemade chimi-churri sauce). Beyond those staples, expect an ever-changing menu with new dishes and desserts added each week. Vegetarian options are available.

Stumbled into this place last week. The head honcho immediately came over and entertained, expounded upon his menu and told us where to get some cheap craft beers round the corner (The City Beverage Company Round Ltd... get a bottle of Fonk). Both had HUGE steak ciabattas with fries and more steak! Used my TimeOut card and got 20% off - NB I was the first person to use it. Also, as the the staff had forgotten their respective iPods and I was allowed to put my choonage on, which I'm sure acted as a repellant for passers by but no one inside seemed to mind! I advise getting there soon because they are moving up further Stoke Newington High Street to compete with the innumerable Ocackbasi joints.
definitely recommend this place. its small but great vibe, fun music and great food. i've tried all the sandwiches on the menu and keep coming back for more
