Pond Dalston Freakshakes

Pond considers itself a forerunner of the ‘New Hawaiian Cuisine’ wave in London, a trend which, if it’s anything like this Dalston bar and restaurant, will lap meekly on the sand rather than rolling magnificently along the foreshore. In a city where we’re not especially familiar with Old Hawaiian cuisine, opening a place like this is a brave step – more so given that it’s hidden away down an alley off one of Dalston’s edgier squares. The sizeable former industrial premises have been given an appealing makeover, with metal-framed lighting rigs, lots of leather booth seating and a very smart and long bar. On the evidence of our two visits, the bar is the place to be.
