Hidden amongst the Christmas trees, Little Feast invites you to snuggle up under their forest of fairy lights this winter, and treat yourself to food from their line-up of five
What to Expect
Since Little Feast opened its doors in July 2015, the Shepherd’s Bush Market pop up has taken the form of a Mediterranean garden oasis, a Scandinavian-inspired winter forest and then an English walled garden. This winter, tucked away in West London, Little Feast’s fourth instalment offers its own take on an English winter garden.
What to Eat
As most of the food is designed to be enjoyed with friends, Bull & Rancher’s Churasco BBQ Meat Box – which comes packed with beef, lamb, pork, chicken, Brazilian sausage, roasted vegetables, potatoes and sauces – is perfect for sharing.
But for those hungry carnivores who don’t want to share, they also have a smaller size box that you can keep for yourself. Alternatively why not try their fish box, with roasted salmon, or their Churasco BBQ Meat Sandwich.
Serving fresh crab from Start Bay in Devon, Claw offer a refreshingly different menu at this year’s pop up. Whether you try their sliders, mac ‘n’ cheese, fries or the classic claw, all come full to the brim with delicious Devonshire Crab.
Top Tip: You can also find Claw at The Sun & 13 Cantons in Soho until 31 January 2017
What to Drink
It wouldn’t be a winter pop up without mulled wine and cider. They’re also serving up winter cocktails, prosecco, beer and magnums of red, which are all available from the decked out bar.
When visiting Little Feast this Christmas, you will undoubtedly want to sample everything, and one of the best ways to do so is to load up on sides and share them with your fellow diners.
We suggest trying Nanny Bills’ rich and gooey Mac ‘n’ Cheese Croquettes (pictured above), or their pop up special: the seasonal Pumpkin and Cheddar.
And, while Cheeky Burger can’t be missed for the main event – they have seven different types of burger, including the festive Cheeky Turkey and their special, which comes with wagyu, fois gras and truffle mayo – make sure you don’t overlook their fries: the Truffle and Parmesan Chips were deliciously crispy, and designed with a perfectly furrowed middle to cram full of the tasty topping.
If you’re after something a little more indulgent (if that’s possible!), why not try their Angry Motherducker Fries, which come with confit BBQ duck, hot daddy sauce and an optional fried, runny duck egg.
One of this year’s newcomers, Le Bao, brings a modern twist to everyone’s favourite buns. Soft soy milk buns and crispy fillings leave you wishing you had space for more than just two! Their Chicken Bao – which comes with crispy chicken thigh, gochujang mayo, sesame seeds, spring onions and lettuce – was described by one happy feaster as “bloody amazing”. The menu also includes Braised Pork Belly Buns with sweet powdered peanuts, as well as Goat’s Cheese and Caramelised Onion ones too.
