Pickled Fred is a restaurant on Brick Lane, and the food can only be described as a bit all over the place. The menu is split up into three sections: first snacks, then small plates, and finishing somewhat inexplicably with flatbreads. It’s all a bit of a ‘foods of the world’ tour, with options jumping from a jackfruit scotch egg, to sriracha honey wings, to a bone marrow rendang, to flatbreads ranging from ‘yuzu avocado’ to ‘banh mi’. If you’re a bit lost, so were we. We liked several of the dishes, but we wish they would pick a concept and stick with it (we suggest losing the flatbread section). The restaurant itself is simple, warm and welcoming - perfect for a chilled dinner date or catching up with mates. If Pickled Fred concentrates on focusing the menu, it has the potential to be a really interesting casual restaurant in the area.
