Feast London

Feast London (2)
 
I sit here writing this having just demolished the hugest double stack of ribs last night, and yet am still drooling over my photos, gracefully thinking 'I could just eat that deep fried burger right now...' Yes, that's right, deep fired burger- Welcome to Feast London!
 
Feast London is pretty self explanatory, some of London's best small time restaurants come together for one weekend to host pop up stalls outside Guys hospital and let us feast on their bet dishes. Being a London newbie this was the perfect opportunity to discover the best food hangouts all in one go. You bet I brought my stretchy pants.

We started at The Wright Brothers, who have a seafood restaurant in Soho. I was instantly drawn in by the fresh, plump oysters on the table. I've never had oysters, so in true foodie spirit we went for all 3 flavours, traditional, Ginger, chilli, & soy, and Coriander & jalapeno.

I tried to master the 'slide down the throat' technique... not so graceful.

After starting on rather a sophisticated note, we decided to get down and dirty to a big ol' dish of Mac and Cheese from Anna Mae's.

My partner in crime was Caroline from Cocktails and Caroline. Having met the night before for the first time at Met Bar we got on like a house on fire over our mutual love of food and drink. Having maybe drank one too many we both declared Mac and Cheese was needed. Heavy, carby, and oh so delicious. Hang over be gone!

Deciding we needed to go do the honour lap round before we peaked too early, we discovered the inside seating. Bums to bums, everyone rally's round together. I love how food brings people together, as lets be honest here, in London people just don't talk to each other! Being a northerner, its the norm to strike a conversation on a bus, or god forbid a train with a stranger, but here, if you so much as dare look at anyone, is immediately On Guard!

Soon we were back down to business. Now I have a confession, one which my friend detests of me as its so unlady like, but I love fired chicken. Greasy, fried meat, sliding off the bone. Its finger lickin' goodness I just cant resist. So when I spotted chicken wings, I was all over those bad boys like a shot.

Now I didn't realise this until I've just looked them up now, but apparently Bread Street Kitchen is Gordan Rasmey's? Bloody hell, no wonder they were so damn good! I was going to say the

Tamarind spiced chicken wings with spring onions and coriander were the best thing there, so no wonder. Honestly, they were greasy heaven!

Caroline was more graceful than I and went for the duck salad. Saved her getting dubious chicken stains on her trousers like I received for my sins.

I'm sexy and I know it...

Next up was Wiggies, pulled pork sliders. While they may not look like anything special, we both gave a unanimous 'yummm'. Exceeding expectations is always a winner for me.

However one of the best finds of the day was Flat Iron who served Beef Belly. I adore pork belly, but beef belly? Its not something you ever hear of. So I'm here to tell you, go find it. Incredibly flavoursome, it is slow cook it for 48hrs then finished on right there live on a BBQ. It was incredibly rich, tender, and bursting with flavour. I am going to have to go to these guys restaurant, I need more!

After seeing a man parade around dressed as a chicken, we knew there was only one thing to do- follow him. Turns out he was from Check On who served their Eggs & Soldiers dessert which consisted of a egg shell with vanilla creme brûlée & mango jelly with a shortbread solder. Genius.

Now at the beginning I promised you a Deep Fried Burger, so as one to always keep my word, I present to you Bao's Heart Attack.

Fried chicken, hot sauce, stuffed in a bun, and fried to heart attack perfection. Yes, bun and all. Ummm clogged arteries never tasted so good!

Now it wasn quite so saved the best to last, but Wishbone was one of the most delicious burgers I've possibly ever had. Wow big league there. While it was not look so graceful, it was bursting with flavours which were layers perfectly. Plus anyone who buts a hash brown on a burger gets m approval instantly.

Having eaten our weight in food, we decided we possibly couldn't fit in another mouthful, however much we wanted to keep going.

I believe Feast London are doing a Christmas festival which I will 100% be there at, so I know its keen, but if you fancy going, look out for me- at the rate London is treating me, I'll be the fattie in the corner licking chicken sauce off my chin.

  3. Aaah, my mouth still waters at the sight of that beef belly! What fatty goodness!

    We have to go again at Christmas. If we do the Friday evening session, we'll have to have a few mulled wines to team up with our burgers :)

  7. I just commented on Carolines post and will repeat what I said there... any event where it's perfectly acceptable to do nothing but walk around and eat food all day is a great idea to me!!
