POPS PICKS: London Street Eats
With so much to choose from, it can be difficult to navigate the streets of scrumptious eating. Pop-up food stalls & halls are great places for groups who want to try different plates. The variety of cuisines on offer will tantalise the tastebuds & you can find your choices prepared on demand.
Arguably a street food favourite, the mighty chicken wing, has a whole festival coming to the UK this month. Wing Fest will take place in London (7th & 8th September) followed by Manchester the week after. You’ll be sure to find wing roulette wheels, BBQ masterclasses, eating competitions & the tastiest wings to tuck in to. Our POPS van will also be there for that post-wing sweet treat.
Whether it’s a lunch munch you are after or a night out with friends, we’ve highlighted our pick from some top London hotspots - thank us later!
