hawker house: street feast

02 March 2014

Having read about this foodie heaven on Becks, Shu and Angela's blogs, I knew I had to see it for myself. Now you know why we were in East London… food was our destination, naturally.

Street Feast is set up in an old factory, creating an indoor street market with 10 food stalls and 4 bars. The atmosphere is lively, the people friendly and the whole set up is casual and colourful.

As for the food, we went to town. We tried something from 5 of the 10 stalls. The unanimous favourite was the pork ribs - so good. Especially since I rarely eat ribs but have been craving them (those who watch House of Cards will understand!). The gyoza was good, E loved them but the chilli sauce threw me off a bit - being a bit of a soy sauce & vinegar purist. The pork belly buns from Bao were delicious (Yum Buns weren't available sadly, but I expect they are similar), and those extremely naughty fried pork belly croquettes (sneakily chosen by E, unsurprisingly)? Outrageous, but undeniably, sinfully good.

Dessert was one weird concoction - a Bacon & Maple Syrup Brownie. E wasn't in love with it, but I thought it was just subtle enough to get away with the crazy concept. The salty & sweet combo never gets old! I do believe that bacon & maple syrup go best with pancakes and french toast though.

All washed down with a bucket of my favourite cocktail, Margarita.

Catch their 10 week run before 22nd March (open every Friday & Saturday), although surely they'll have to come back again due to popular demand?


  1. Great photos. I went a few weeks ago for the first line up but need to go back now it's changed, mostly because I need another Kimchinary burrito after trying one at KERB a few weeks ago.

  2. Every food picture is making my mouth water, if only I wasn't sat in the library with just a bottle of water for company!

    B xx

  3. I seriously need to get my bum in gear and get to this- every single picture is making me hungrier and hungrier.

    Hmm maybe...

  4. It looks so very delicious!

  5. the steamed milk bun looks so so delicious. i love the atmosphere of this place as well!

  6. oh my! The food glory is too overwhelming haha.
    I love steamed milk buns :D It's a pity that we don't have these delicious fingerfood in the Netherlands.

  7. Ooooh a bacon & maple brownie?!?!?! I'm definitely curious about this concoction of ingredients!

  8. This looks so so fun...I loved the Christmas markets in Europe, going from stall to stall and getting little samples of things. This looks like absolute heaven and an amazing date idea! How long did it take to get through the whole thing?
