The Long Table: a street food feat

Lucky Chip burger patties on the grill

For my first entry, I’d like to applaud Nuno Mendes and the Bootstrap Company for pulling off their latest project, The Long Table, a pop-up outdoor street food market in Dalston that had gigantic queues stretching onto the street from the word go.

I went in the first week (tonight’s was the final one before Christmas) to share some of the best dishes with a few friends. Our favourites were Lucky Chip for the best, most succulent, non-greasy burgers since the #MEATEASY pop up in New Cross last year, The Bowler for its beautiful fresh pasta and herby meatballs in a box, Nuno’s The Loft Project for an incredible plate of ribs with mushrooms (worth queueing for) and Regina’s wonderful smoked aubergine dal which sold out at her Gastro Geek stall.

I hope they manage to get permission to do more in the New Year. Watch this space.
