Our journey took us Eastwards… on a stroll that went all the way along the Thames Festival route. This is the first time that I’ve not been buried in a freezer, scooping ice cream like a banshee from the choc-mobile during the Festival, and it was great to see the thing in its (almost) entirety.
Here are some of the sights – albeit with a certain eat.st bias-cut…
Tarrying a while on Southwark Bridge I was made up to see Westonbirt – eat.st’s very own ice cream Airstream dream. This girl can whip that stuff into a shape that is bouncing. You have to try the shakes – GRrrr.
Reclaiming the city for one day only and in a most civilised way. Dining a-straddle the Thames is a major high-point of the Festival – Feast on the Bridge got it going on, straight-up.
And so to the Scoop where Bhangra Burger, Creperie Nicholas, Tongue ‘n Cheek and Yum Bun formed a clump. Yes, the word clump is the only way to describe this splinter group of the eat.st collective at large at Thames. A rambunctious clump of flavour upon the cool, pristine paving stones of More London.
Thank you to all those who made it down – we hope you enjoyed.
