Street feast at Lewisham Model Market

One of the many reasons why I love living in London - the amazing pop ups and food markets that spring up all over town during the summer. I'd heard that Lewisham has a food market but not being able to find it I wasn't too fussed until Gemma shared her photos over on Flutter and sparkle. Needless to say I was soon convinced and it wasn't long before I was arranging a trip to Lewisham model market myself: 

Located just behind the shopping center Lewisham model market makes use of an abandoned shopping arcade every Friday and Saturday during the summer. The line up changes regularly but luckily for me most of the favourites seem to be there every week.

With around 15-20 stalls we were spoilt for choice with everything from Asian street food to burgers and desserts. There's also a bar and lounge area upstairs where you can enjoy dinner and drinks overlooking the market.

We started with these Korean chicken wings from Spit and Roast which were so good we ended up going back for more. Crispy bite sized wings coated in the most amazing sticky chilli sauce. Deliciously moreish and definitely a dish that I would recommend. 

Next came these giant ribs from Smoke House. Cooked over a flame grill and smothered in BBQ sauce these were ridiculously messy to eat but oh my goodness were they good! Juicy tender pork that went perfectly with the sweet smokey sauce.

After a few dishes we were in need of some hydration and what better than a refreshing cocktail served in an hallowed out watermelon. Very Instagramable and a fun way to share a drink. 

Yum Bun was another favourite and both the scrimp and pork belly were absolutely delicious. Salty meat and flavoured mayonnaise/hoisin sauce wrapped in the lightest fluffiest bun. In fact we enjoyed these so much we went back for another 2 servings. 

I have Gemma to thank for the last savoury dish of the day. The double candy bacon flipper from Mother Flipper (above in the first photo). A juicy beef patty in a brioche bun with melted American cheese, pickles and candied bacon. The whole thing was so well flavoured and the crispy bacon absolutely delicious too. I've never had it with maple syrup before but it's definitely something that I'll be recreating at home.

There were a few options for dessert too. I'd planned to try some brownies from SE bakery or a Meringue girls sundae but in the end I couldn't resist this ice cream from my favourite Yum Bun. I loved the combination of cold coffee ice cream and warm toasted brioche bun and it was the perfect end to our meal. 

Lewisham model market has a fun chilled out urban vibe and as the night goes on it gets packed with full of people all out to have a good time and enjoy the food and atmosphere on offer. It's on all summer and if you're ever in the area then I would definitely recommend a visit.
