A new street food hub in Lon­don’s far east

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Contents -

There’s a new place to eat, drink and be merry in Lon­don THE GAS­TRO­NOMIC MAP of Lon­don has never re­ally charted any­where east of the Thames Bar­rier, but change is afoot with the open­ing of Public in Wool­wich – a street-food venue in­side the cav­ernous building that once housed the 1930s Plum­stead Road Cov­ered Mar­ket. It’s the lat­est ven­ture from the Street Feast team, which runs sim­i­lar tem­ples to all things food and drink in four other lo­ca­tions across Lon­don, from Shored­itch to Canada Wa­ter. Billing it­self as a ‘food sta­dium’, Public is more a place to bring a gag­gle of friends than a first date, with pun­ters set­tling on to long ta­bles with spoils from the numer­ous street-food traders and bars. If you want to join them, don’t hang around too long: the whole site will be de­mol­ished in 2020 when the area comes un­der re­de­vel­op­ment. Open Fri­day nights and Satur­days only; street­feast.com
