When it comes to outstanding places to eat, Londoners are spoiled for choice. The city ranks sixth in the world for its number of Michelin stars and is home to three of the UK’s five three-star restaurants. London also has a growing reputation for its street food culture.
Drawing on influences from around the world, London is developing a street gourmet vibe all of its own, with areas such as Wembley Park emerging as foodie destinations in their own right. Most recently, the opening of the city’s largest Boxpark site has cemented Wembley Park’s reputation as the ideal home for gourmands.
Boxpark’s focus is on bringing independent, local brands to the fore. The original Boxpark, in Shoreditch, was “inspired by a love of small independent retailers and container architecture,” according to Boxpark founder and chief executive Roger Wade. The company’s third such site, Boxpark Wembley is its biggest and most exciting launch to date.
Lifestyle-led rental company Tipi and its new Landsby development, is right next to the Boxpark site with those living there have access to a hugely diverse new range of local food and beverage retailers. The multicultural gastronomic offerings include delicacies from the likes of Ugly Dumpling, Nanny Bills, Smoky Boys, Cut + Grind and many more.
