Feast Canteen is a huge new street food destination from the folks behind Feast Bar and Kitchen and Pergola, open now in Kings Mall in Hammersmith.
The food court in the mall was previously unused so this is great news for the area, plus it’s filled with some of London’s top names.
The idea here is to change the idea of what a street food canteen can be, so forget the plastic chairs and MDF tables. This is an altogether slicker experience, not to mention a gigantic one – there’s room for 350 inside.
We’re really impressed with the line up here, which includes:
Made of Dough: These guys make really great Neapolitan style pizza, using dough that’s fermented for sixty hours. Sixty! They’re also very particular when it comes to toppings, using, for example, chorizo from Spanish importer and restaurant chain Brindisa and anchovies from super-canners Ortiz.
Breddos Tacos: Breddos makes some of London’s best tacos, putting creative spins on traditional serves. Sure, you can grab a chicken taco here but why not try the char siu pork belly with puffed rice and sambal?
Patty & Bun: There had to be a burger joint, right? Their classic Ari Gold cheeseburger flies out the kitchen but we’re digging the Jose Jose, made with sobrasada, a spreadable spicy pork sausage from the Balearic Islands.
Salvation in Noodles: Better known as SIN, this is where to head for modern, home-cooked Vietnamese food. The pho noodle soup is your classic benchmark dish, although we recommend the crab and prawn spring rolls too.
Sinchow: Rice paper rolls are so easy to eat yet feel kind of healthy, which means they could be among the world’s most perfect foods. Traditionally stuffed with noodles, prawns or meat and herbs, here they make a range of fillings, including hoisin duck and Cajun sweet potato.
It’s soft drinks only, available from individual vendors.
This is street food so it’s not going to break the bank. Think £5-10 for a dish and you’re in the right ballpark.
In a Nutshell:
This is a major new opening for West Londoners and we imagine nearby office workers will be very smug indeed. We certainly would be…
