Meat, meat, glorious meat. If you’ve got a carnivorous craving, allow us to point you in the direction of the smokin’ new Spitalfields barbecue joint Hot Box. Like many new openings, Hot Box started as a street food vendor where they smoked their way around the capital, peddling their meaty goods at markets including Street Feast’s Dalston Yard, Hawker House and Battersea Power Station, and Wireless and Field Day festivals.
They’ll be serving their lovingly smoked beef short ribs, jalapeno hot link sausage sandwiches, wagyu beef brisket rolls, smoked mac ‘n’ cheese, bone marrow gravy mash and homemade pickles with evening and weekend specials. We’ve tried the food straight from the van and it was rather delicious but the jury is still out on how they’ll transform into a stationary set-up. But there’s no better way to find out than heading down from today until Monday Dec 8 for their soft opening where you’ll get 50 percent off all food!
