Urban Perk #3: Street-Feast @ Lewisham

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry for the lack of posts recently but
my summer holidays started yesterday so I
should have some more time on my hands to
post now.

Last weekend was spent at the
lovely Latitude Festival in Suffolk.
I'll be posting about the festival once my 
photos are developed!I saw so many great
acts from headliners; Lily Allen and
 Bombay Bicycle Club to under-the-radar bands
like Spring King and Parquet Courts.
So keep a look out!

Today I wanted to tell you about another
perk of living in the city which is
Street Feast London who have various feasts
around new and upcoming locations in London.
I recently went to one in Lewisham (which I have
been told is now nicknamed 'Newisham'), it is set in
the abandoned 1950s Model Market which is
rough and rustic.

To get in, you're probably going to have to queue for a
while, unless you get there quite early.
Upon entering the market you are greeted by a walkway of run
down records shops, dry cleaners and takeaway branches
but when you look in you can see that they are being
 occupied by passionate foodies...

Smoke swirls out from SmokeStak BBQ where I swear they
serve some of the best ribs in London! On the menu there 
is smoked beef or pork ribs - although they are quite 
pricey you get what you pay for in quality and
even quantity! The shop itself has plaster walls,
a make do seating area, an open kitchen and a very
lovely order taking lady. I highly recommend!

Afterwards, I found this place called Yum Bun.
I had heard of Yum Bun from a breakfast show and
was happily surprised when I saw them at the feast
- the food looked incredible and simple too!
Yum Bun are famous for their soft steamed buns with a 
selection of fillings: pulled pork, fish, chicken, salmon or 
Theses beautiful buns are great as a light snack
and are perfect for munching on the street.
 I ordered the Pulled Pork bun and it was amazing; the bun
light and fluffy whilst the pork sweet and tender!

Not only does it have great food and drink but a lovely
atmosphere too! There area few eating areas which are located
in shabby shops decorated with make-do furniture. However,
the main eating place is right in the centre of the market
complete with a bar, loud music, fairy lights and even
a TV! 

And just to top off a wonderful evening, there are a variety
of desserts to choose from. I chose the brownies from
the South East Brownie Bar who had a great selection of
flavours; Peanut Butter, Oreo, Mojito and loads more!
With the help of the friendly Brownieman I was able
to choose 5 miniature brownies to go; Oreo,
Salted Caramel x2, Mojito and Peanut Butter. 
And they were absolutely incredible!!

So, if you're looking for something to do or you're
feeling hungry head to Lewisham's Model Market for 
some lovely food, people and music. 
Street Feast is open from 20th June to 27th September
every Friday and Saturday from 6pm till late. 

Happy Feasting,
