London Food Month – Part 2 – London Night Market 

Part 2 of my #londonfoodmonth event extravaganza – the night market.


If you don’t know, I work in retail and that comes with some fabulous foodie perks including free tickets to events. This was one of them (but I would definitely pay to go!).

There were so many eateries to choose from, you need a whole week to work your way through the delights on offer (rather than just an evening!). For me the choice came down to three places and it was very much a savoury affair.

Mews of Mayfair


Getting fancy food for a fraction of the price is a good enough excuse to choose to come here! Mews of Mayfair is an exclusive restaurant and bar in the centre of Mayfair – not somewhere I would naturally go to because of the price tag (but this is what makes events like this great – great food for a fraction of the price!). I ate a truffle burger with truffle Brie in a charcoal bun and I have to say it was my favourite thing at the event. I died and went to burger heaven. I concluded that if I could only live off these burgers for the rest of my life, I would be perfectly content!

Rainbo Gyoza Dumplings

Next was Rainbo foods. Dumplings are probably one of my favourite foods in the world, so when we noticed that there was a dumpling stool at the market, we took a b-line! You could buy 5 or 8 gyozas dressed with Asian slaw, coriander, chillies, soy sauce, sesame seeds and peanuts. There were three flavours to choose from: chicken and miso, pork and Chinese chive and tofu and shiitake mushrooms – best of all you could mix and match your gyozas!! We had 2 pork, 2 chicken and 1 tofu. I love gyozas with their crispy bottoms and lightly steamed tops. I truly believe that anything can be made better by putting it into a dumpling! These just hit the jackpot and were a flavoursome mid burger snack!
Other Side of Fried

Last up was Other side of fried. Now, I have to say, my college was thoroughly disappointed when she had here first other side of fried at Noshville. So when I saw them at this event I just had to form my own opinion and give them a try. I opted for the honey butter burger with bacon (which in my opinion sounds amazing!). I have to say that me and my college may have to have a falling out because I absolutely loved it! Honey butter is the most perfect compliment to bacon and fried chicken.
