I haven’t penned a foodie blog post for a while, so when I was given an early birthday surprise to visit the Hawker House Street Feast night market, it made sense to share some of the highlights of the evening. Especially as the Street Feast provided some of the best food I’ve ever tasted…
Hawker House night market first popped up on my radar just before Christmas, when I saw this post on Twitter. You could say I was VERY happy when we turned the corner of Pritchards Road, and I saw the Hawker House sign loom into view.
The £3 entry is a bargain to get access to some of the best food you can eat in London beyond 9pm.
We headed to the bar, grabbed a pint of Fuller’s Frontier craft beer, and began to browse.
The dimly lit rooms are full of people tucking into ribs, wraps, brisket, burritos, mojitos and brownies.
We wasted no time, and headed to Hotbox. They are a pop up beef and ribs shack, with their very own mobile smoker. Check out what we saw as we were about to order.
We ordered a box full of USDA beef, with a smokey, sweet BBQ sauce. It was DELICIOUS, and possibly the most moist beef I’ve ever tasted.

Next we tried some pork ‘loinpops’, £2 each for melt in your mouth pork. You can probably tell we enjoyed them!
After that, we re-filled on craft beer, and tucked into beef and chicken tacos, followed by a tasty chorizo and halloumi wrap from French and Grace.
After a couple of refreshing mojitos, we hit the Kimchinary Korean beef stand and grabbed a very tasty, spicy beef burrito – best value of the night for £6.50.

We were just about full to bursting at this point, but earlier in the night, I spotted the Whisky Bar, with some of the best collections of whisky from around the world that I’d ever seen. We tried the Hibiki 17 Japanese whisky. Smooth, flavoursome and simply amazing.
As we had an hour journey to get home, we packed ourselves a little doggy bag. Of brownies. For anyone wanting to taste one of the best browny flavours, head to Hawker House and try the Berry Crunch. If you do, and you agree, please thank me on Twitter.
Street Feast is possibly the best night food market around. It is running at Hawker House every Friday and Saturday night, until 21st/22nd March.
As you’ve probably seen from the photos, it brings together some of London’s best street food traders, chefs and restaurants. They serve pint-sized mojitos, craft beer, great wine and great food.
Grab yourself a free evening, and go and enjoy – you won’t regret it!
