London is one of the leading capitals in the world for food trends. And leading the pack within the city is Shoreditch. It's known for being a foodie's haven so we're going to be honest and admit it was really, really bloody difficult to pick amongst the top 25 places and get it down to just 10. So don't chew our heads, you can comment below and tell us where your favourite places are.

Here are the 10 best places to eat in Shoreditch in order of where you need to go:

10th. Dishoom

If you like to live life in colour than come here. The dedicated team behind this outlet will make it their business that you leave having had a great and memorable experience. You'll feel right at home in the surroundings of the eclectic decor and a belly full of happiness.

9th. Boundary

Ask anyone - this place is absolutely perfect on a sunny day, on the rooftop, with a chilled drink and great company... and the menu isn't half bad either. Go on a Sunday with a group of pals and get the roast. You won't regret it.

8th. Hoi Polli

We'll let you in on a secret - "Sunday Strings" is one of the best Sunday concepts out there - it's a string quartet that plays while you eat. Hoi Polli is a brasserie that sits within the Ace Hotel making it the perfect place to grab a drink before or after your meal. Hoi Polli's menu is full of modern European inspired dishes that are full to the brim with flavour.

7th. Merchant's Tavern

If you're in the market for some French, Italian and Spanish inspired cuisine then you've come to the right place. Not only is this place outstanding for drinks, the menu is to die for. It's a huge Victorian warehouse and they've everything from deep fried oysters to pig's trotters. Go with an open mind and let your tastebuds do the talking.

6th. Hoxton Grill

The Hoxton Grill is a guilty pleasure for many. Don't come here and not order the shrimp burger - it's a game changer. The staff are super-knowledgeable and attentive which is key in a busy place like this. Tables turn quickly but it's nice to retire to the bar afterwards. It's a great place to come alone to eat or to catch up with a friend - the dark lighting make it nice and intimate. If you haven't been yet, go.

5th. The Princess Of Shoreditch

The Princess of Shoreditch is the epitome of gourmet pub grub. There's not one man that would argue that this is one of the best places to eat in Shoreditch, if not the whole of London. The stunning gastro pub offers up some incredible mixed roasts, epic brunches, a great beer selection and service to beat the band. No complaints here. Make a reservation in advance to avoid disappointment.

4th. Hawksmoors

Steak. Amazing steak. Probably the best steak you'll taste in London. Oh and great cocktails. And let's not forget to mention the great atmosphere. Perhaps a little bit more expensive than what you'd usually pay for but it's most certainly worth it. Make sure Hawksmoors is on your hit list no matter what.

3rd. HIX At The Tramshed

Okay you might have spotted a bit of a trend here already. And if you haven't we'll tell you - the roast is back. Goodbye bizarre food trends and let's celebrate the resurrection of the roast. The Tramshed are another place who do the roast 2.0 so well. Prices are so reasonable for the amount of food and they quality that is brought out to you with every service. And let's not forget to mention the awesome interior and THAT Damien Hurst formaldehyde cow that makes it so unique.

2nd. Eyre Brothers

Since opening in 2001, Eyre Brothers have made a name for themselves with their exquisite Iberian cuisine. The best way we can describe the overall experience is "top notch". It's amazing to see a restaurant still do so well after so many years.

1st. Pizza East

Topping the list is Pizza East... There's very little these guys do wrong. You'll find it full of all types - solo diners, dates, groups of friends, workmates, young, old and everyone else in-between. The decor kind of reminds us a bit of ABC Kitchen in New York - an industrial but cosy feel about it. Get in here early as it's always packed to the rafters and most of the time there's a wee queue. What will you get here? The tastiest pizza that'll ever pass you lips with toppings you won't see everywhere. Go wild.
