I was reading a few of my favourite Blogs a few weeks back and somehow I stumbled on a site that listed interesting , different things to do in London, now this is something that is right up my street. London is so beautiful, I often take for granted how lucky I am to live here. With art galleries, museums, markets and kitsch restaurants there is just so much to explore and do. When I saw the advertisement for a food festival I was all over it, especially as the vendors were all London based restaurants with their pop up stalls. Perfect way to be introduced to some really cool places to eat in London.
The price of the ticket was just £8 each which I thought was reasonable considering it included live music and special appearances from the selection of London's most exciting chefs. The venue was in London's old Tobacco Warehouse in Wapping and it was so beautiful, such a unique venue however when I arrived I began to think that the £8 ticket wasn't quite worth our pennies.

Lots of excellent restaurants selling some of their best dishes, we actually tasted the piccalilli and it was soooo good.
If my friends are reading this they will know that wherever we go Dan always ALWAYS get a burger, it gets right on my nerves but hey he loves it. He was in his element eating this bad boy from Rita's Chicken shop. Rita's Dining can be found in a funky venue in Dalston more info can be found here. here we will definitely be paying a visit!
Obviously the idea at a food festival is to try the food, but to be honest I was expecting there to be more tasters on the stalls, so that people could try before they buy, a few did this but mostly it was just buy only. We opted to go in the day instead of the night and in hindsight I think we should have gone in the evening, there was a busy crowd but we saw no chefs at work, basically we paid to come and buy lunch, kind of like paying to get into Borough Market. We still had a good time and the venue was breath taking, but after eating our lunch and taking a few pictures there wasn't much else to do. Although lucky I love that boy of mine he is always good company, we ordered a drink from the Bourbon Bar, people watched then headed home for a sofa and film night. Top bloody weekend.What did Y'all get up to?
