TRY A GREAT SANDWICH

Trade

Trade is now doing dinner at its Islington and Shoreditch sites. Known for epic sandwiches filled with cured meats, pickles and zingy sauces, Trade’s new menu features some soon-to-be-classics: the ‘Reuben’ sandwich with double pastrami, sauerkraut and Trade sauce on East End rye bread; the ‘Peanut Pork Bun’ with pork belly, peanuts, cucumber and hoisin dressing; and the ‘Cuban Club’ with smoked turkey, ham, Swiss cheese and cranberry sauce. Add on skinny fries and grilled cornbread, then wash it all down with a couple of craft beers.
