Shakshuka at Cafe Loren

I love a full English breakfast as much as the next Brit. Pile my plate high with bacon, beans, eggs and sausage and I’m a happy morning bunny. However, there are times when I just fancy a little summin summin different and on these occasions, I love me some shakshuka.

Ever since I saw the footage of their Glastonbury set in 2013 (I have actually never been to a music festival because I have a deep set fear of camping and portaloos. AREN’T YOU JUST WET ALL THE TIME?!) I have harboured a burning desire to see them play live. AND IT WAS EVERYTHING I DREAMED OF AND MORE! Turning up at Camden’s Roundhouse, I met my friend Hannah, who gleefully informed me that she was  ...
