Winter Retreat


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.



Making shit happen and bringing the vibes.

So far no deaths or arrests.
