Some of our favourite traders are battening down the hatches for autumn/winter and heading indoors. From fondue parties in an old Peckham cash and carry to authentic Thai food and Asian-inspired cocktails in London Fields, there are plenty of warm places to get your street food fix.
Here’s a quick round-up of the best pub residencies and kitchen takeovers kicking off this month:
- The Bowler at The Horse and Groom, Shoreditch – Machiavellian meatball guru Jez Felwick brings his gourmet balls to east London.
- Breddos at Trip Space, Haggerston– Our boys have been serving up fantastic Mexican/American-inspired street food under the Trip Space arches over the summer and the taco kings have extended their residency to the end of October. Praise the Lord.
- Forza Win(ter) at Unit 4.1, Peckham – The Forza Win team relaunch their popular fondue party, with a five course Italian menu, a vat of molten cheese, a hot cocktail bar and lashings of Moretti
- When Mac met Cheese at Swingers, Shoreditch. Crazy golf, cocktails and a cheesy carb fest. What’s not to like
- Rola Wala at Trinity Kitchen, Leeds – After smashing it at both Model Market and Dalston Yard this summer, Rola Wala take their punchy Indian street food oop north. You lucky Loiners.
- Som Saa at Climpson’s Arch, Hackney – Thai food doesn’t get better than this. Former Nahm chef Andy Oliver takes over Climpson’s at the end of October before moving to more permanent premises next year.
- The Bell and Brisket at The Duke’s Head, Highgate. Bel has just won the London Lifestyle ‘Street Food of the Year’ award for her super salt beef sarnies. ‘Nuff said.
