Storeys Pop-Up Food Festival

Storeys Pop-Up Food Festival, Television Centre, West London - En Brochette

On Thursday I had the chance to attend the press launch for Storeys, a new pop-up food festival held on top of the old BBC Television Centre's car park in west London.

If the pictures aren't enough to make you believe me, let me tell you how good this food was. So good. Storeys is on for seven weekends, so there's a regular rotation between street food vendors, but we got to sample a pretty banging hotdog from Tico's and deliciously salty salt and chilli squid from Yum Jungle. For those watching their waist lines, or just looking for more food, there were meat skewers from En Brochette that included some very nice lime aioli covered king prawns. There were also cocktails-a-plenty and I can 100% vouch for the Largarita. Yes, that's a margarita made with beer. It sounds grim but after finishing mine I immediately went for another (always a sign of a very good drink, I'd say).

In addition to the food and drink, there's a bevy of street art by local artists in a pretty successful attempt to make you forget you're actually on top of a car park. My favourite was the turtle by Central Saint Martin's student Clara Bacou, although the walls are covered in amazingly colourful graffiti that give her serious competition. 

The entire site is being redeveloped soon to make room for new homes, offices and a bigger Westfield, and the car park's also going to be knocked down in a short time, meaning that this is a once in a lifetime venture. Storeys is next to Wood Lane tube station and is a mere stone's throw away from Westfield, so if you're doing your weekend shopping and feeling peckish then I'd say it's definitely worth crossing the road for some very good food in a unique location.
