Hawker House at Street Feast


Street Feast was one of the best places to be in London last summer and I spent quite a few evenings there eating amazing street food. I thought it would be over for another year, instead the lovely organizers found an old factory in Hackney and launched Hawker House – “a fine showcase of London’s best street food” as recently described by The Evening Standard.

Inspired by the hawker centres of Singapore, Hawker House takes our growing night market culture inside for the winter, all covered, warm and dry, with ten food traders, four bars and a DJ to keep you entertained. [Official Website]

I was there last Friday to photograph the traders and the food, but also to catch a bit of the atmosphere that makes Street Feast so special.

The new location is cool as only East London can be and in particular there are a few things I liked about Hawker House: the amazing light display and disco balls, the DJ playing great music, the cloakroom and being warm and dry! I love their summer open air events and I know British people can adapt to any kind of weather, but it’s also nice to be indoor when it’s winter and it’s raining! :)

There were a few street food traders I hadn’t tried before, like Rola Wala, Fundi Pizza and Miss P’s BBQ.

As well as a few of my old favourites, like Breddos Tacos, Yum Bun, Bleecker St Burger, Vinn Goute, You Doughnuts and Cooking Cooks.

The Rotary Bar was busy as usual, mixing special cocktails like the Apollo Gin Smash and the Sunset Fizz or classic Negroni, Margaritas and Mojitos.
