This weekend I headed down to Hawker House, Canada Water for the first ever Oktober Feast event. With a mantra of EAT. MEAT. BIER. REPEAT, we knew we were in for a great evening.
You could feel the buzz of excitement as you entered the room. Like other Street Feast venues, the lights are low, the music is banging and the smell of food is irresistible. I don’t know what it is about steins, but it instantly makes beer taste that little bit better, so with a Veltins in hand, we made our way to the first street food stand, Rola Wala.
I ordered the trio of Mini-Naan sliders, topped with Papaya Chicken, Goan Pulled Pork and spicy Keralan Dal. I have to say, I started off with a WINNER – It was my favourite dish of the night.
Next stop was Breddo’s, winners of the ‘Best Taco in the UK’ Award, 2014. We loved their culture inspired trio, serving Smog Rocket Short Rib (USA), Pretzel crusted chicken (German) and Fish & Chip (UK) taco’s. Each were perfectly cooked with its own unique flavours.
Prawnography was a firm favourite, with long queues and a constant demand for their Tiger Prawn currywurst. The prawno- graphy team also served crab-meat fries which were deliciously sweet and surprisingly good! They really brought the fun of the seaside to the city!
Struggling with our full bellies, we knew we still had two crucial traders to taste, Spit and Roast and Busan BBQ. Not wanting to miss out, we split up, ordered and met at our communal beer keg. Spit and Roast didn’t disappoint, with their beautifully crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken Schnitzel bun, Garlic & Dill Kraut and cranberry relish but the real showstopper, for me, was Busan’s Bratwurst; A pork brat topped with fried kimchi, BEER CHEESE sauce and fresh green chillies. It was the perfect way to end the evening.
All in all, we had a fantastic night, so thank you Hawker House for hosting the first ever Oktober Feast.
Roll on next year.
