FOOD MARKET: HOT NEWS – HOT FOOD CART!
Saturday 12 August
Our biggest news this week is Ross from our very own London Smoke & Cure will be bringing his brand new hot food cart for the very first time. Expect smoked lamb schwarma, kiln roast short ribs and smoked cauliflower, served with a selection of herb-based salads, pickles and flatbreads. Find him in the courtyard, next to DJ Tunji and Elia Olive Oil.
Plus The Good Grill Guys are back with a maple & sage breakfast burger, pork burger with Asian slaw or BLT & avo. With that line up it’s a good excuse to go out on the lash tonight, knowing hangover cures will be aplenty! If you’re really hanging, I can recommend a nice boozy coffee from Antenna Cafe to go with it.
