We Feast

This weekend I ventured to Wapping for a feast.
Not just any feast, This was ‘We Feast’ where London’s finest gathered to do what they do best – street-food style.
Held at Tobacco Dock Wapping. I made the rather squelchy, windy walk over Tower Bridge and east to the vast old tobacco warehouse sitting just north of the Thames. 
Wet and windy walks are worth it when this kind of grub awaits you.

Crumbling brick and dark arches lit with twinkling candles and were lined with old wooden benches dressed with bunches of lavender. Steam and smells filled the huge space and live music echoed over the excited chatter and growls of hungry stomachs.

London’s finest restaurants and street food vendors filled two floors all serving just a couple of dishes – done to perfection.

Miss Manchu and Pisco….

I promised myself I would not head for anywhere I have been before. With so much on offer I wanted to try out the new and unknown. But it was friday night and I got over excited. I smelt sizzling beef, my eyes fell upon brioche, soggy with sauce… before I could restrain myself I was half way through a Patty & Bun ‘Ari Gold’. I inhaled. And it was gone.

Sadly there was simply no room left for Hix Fish Dog or Mishkins Reuben Hero Melt that I had my eyes on.

But there is always a small gap for something sweet. Waffle On buttermilk waffles…

I waddled back over Tower Bridge feeling immensely full with a big chocolate-y grin smeared across my chops.
Another successful We Feast weekend. The only drawback was not having a stomach large enough or pockets deep enough to eat everything they had on offer.
