It doesn’t come as a surprise that I am into my food. It is literally all I think about and all I want to talk about. I love trying new dishes and new places, but my only vice is that I get bored pretty quickly and work myself up into a hunger-induced sulk.
See, this is where Hatch is my proverbial Knight in shining armour. They have a number of units for street food traders, and they offer short-term residencies to keep things fresh. This gives us a fantastic opportunity to try new things, and more importantly, keeps us going back again and again. Smart- I like it.
And its change over time (woo!)
This week we wave goodbye to Holy Crab & Yadda Yadda and welcome a fresh set of traders towards the end of the week. So, just as a little introduction we have:
Mama Z is Filipino street food at its finest. You can expect beautiful noodle dishes, aromatic curries, the crispiest spring rolls you have ever tasted and everything in-between. Mama Z brings a little slither of Manila to the windows at Hatch, and we cannot wait to give it a try.
Sticking with the Asian vibe, we have Wok’s Clucking who arrived at Hatch on 28th July. Their food is Pan-Asian, and I hear their signature dish is the Korean Fried Chicken with rice/skinny chips, kimchi and Gochujang sauce- which quite frankly has Kate Tighe written all over it. I cannot wait to get over there and get stuck into one… with chips of course!
In a nutshell, this is Sicilian street-food at its best. T’Arricrii does Arancio (deep-fried risotto balls) with various fillings such as beef ragu, nduja sausage, or spinach and asparagus just to name a few. They also have fresh juices made from Sicilian fruits and sweet treats In the form of conolos- which are utterly to die for.
Well Hung is staying put for the time being, and we can see the return of FireBird Hope and their insanely delicious fried chicken sandwiches from 1st August.
