We’re big fans of London street food; whether it’s grabbing lunch at the Wembley Wednesday food market outside Tipi HQ, hopping on the Met line to Kings Cross for a chocolate and peanut butter donut, or jumping on the Jubilee down to Borough Market to take advantage of the ridiculous choice of food.
So on a sunny Thursday evening in June, we got Kalimera, Greek street food aficionados, to come along to Tipi in their van and cook up a storm.
Kalimera are foodie regulars at the likes of Hoxton and Camden Markets. Founded by Télémaque Argyriou who learned classic Greek recipes from his grandmother, they focus on fresh, seasonal produce, and the food was delicious!
As well as filling up on chicken and haloumi souvlaki, there were also plenty of drinks on hand; soft as well as beer, wine, gin and prosecco!
With the sun shining and the drinks flowing, it felt like the Mediterranean had come to our little corner of London. It was such gorgeous weather most people sat outside on the communal terrace with their drink and chatted.
We also gave away a few prizes, including tickets to Mickey Flanagan and free afternoon tea at the Hilton London Wembley.
It was awesome seeing so many of our residents enjoying their evening together – a good evening was had by all, so roll on the next social!
