Eat This: Festive Specials at KERB Seven Dials MarketBy Alicia Grimshaw
We’ve all been there. You’re booking your festive get-together, but you’ve got to cater for nut-free, vegan, sober, chicken-loving, gluten-free, halal, and all the rest… step forward, Seven Dials Market.
Home to twenty independent street food traders, each with a menu of carefully curated regional dishes, there’s a perfect choice for everyone. As well as their usual menus, this festive season Seven Dials Market’s resident food businesses have been working on a festive menu that’s not just adding brie andonto everything.
Yaay Yaay have been inspired by Christmases past in Thailand, serving up a spicy festive Khao Soi noodle soup dish. Whilst Yum Bun will be offering a Christmas lunch in a bun, featuring fried chicken, pig in blanket, cranberry and a gravy dip. Curry on Naanstop have added Misal Pav to the menu, a traditional sprout curry served with a blend of coriander, cumin and cloves, cooked in-house.
Truffle Burger are catering for cheese lovers with a decadent deep-fried camembert served with fig chutney and drizzled in truffle honey, and El Pollote have nailed the brief, serving up Christmas cake wings, a sweet but savoury combo of fried chicken, scotch bonnets, dried fruit and coconut that just works (we promise), topped off with a glace cherry. The newest member of the market, STAKEhaus, are competing for the ultimate Christmas sarnie crown, serving up a roast beef sub with cranberry, shoestring fries, roasted garlic mayo and HAUS pickles.
It ain’t Christmas without pud, and there are plenty of desserts to choose from at Seven Dials Market this winter. From Soft Serve Society’s chestnut and cream topped waffle, to Wheelcake Island’s warm salted caramel fudge-filled wheelcake..
At Warehouse Bar, the team are serving up classic Christmas tipples like mulled wine and cider. A cocktail lover? Coco Melonball, a combo of rum, melon and coconut or the Reindeer Neck, bourbon, winter spice and ginger, are on the menu.
