After writing all about the changes on Hoe Street, this week I took a walk down the market to St James’ street and discovered some exciting foodie stalls I can’t wait to check out.
It was too early for lunch and the stalls weren’t quite up and running, so I decided to take my morning coffee at Husvagn. From a little blue caravan they’re serving fantastic Yallah Coffee Roasters single origin, ethically sourced coffee from only £2. This week it was from Guatamala and was a fruity and slightly spicy caffine fix – not sure I got the fudge and almonds.
Along with the mighty fine coffees they also serve sausage rolls, cinnamon buns, chocolate brownies, marmite toast and homemade soup. Husvagn is on the market Wed-Fri 8am-4pm and Sat 9am-4pm.
There’s a whole load of other stalls also in the St James’ St area including Bobayumm bubble tea, an amazing-smelling jerk chicken BBQ, and a Polish bigos and hot dog van. Plus a sausage and burger stall and two Turkish street food stalls selling Gozleme (stuffed pancakes) and Lahmacun (a delicious salad-stuffed, rolled-up meaty pizza). Go try them all and let me know the verdict…
We have only just found out about walthamstowfoodies and looks like a good idea.
