Mussel Men

The Jolly RogersComment

Today we were visited by two people called Sean and Kirsty who work at a Scottish seafood cafe in Hackney near Dalston Junction. The cafe is called Mussel Men. They have had it open for 10 months now, it opened on the 7th of June 2014. Sean is the cook at the cafe and Kirsty tells the customers about the mussels and other seafood items on the menu.

They came in today and let us draw our favourite type of fish or shell fish. The type of fish they sell is mussel, clam, squid, lobster, crab, shrimp, prawn and oyster. They don’t sell shark fin or crab sticks.

If you go there you will never get bored because you can play thumb wars with the workers and if you win three round you get a free mussel man t-shirt. The workers also dress up like sailors to entertain the customers.
