Dear AHT: In London Head to #Meateasy, The Meatwagon's Pop-Up Burger Joint

An AHT Field Agent 2 comments

Last year AHT ran a feature on The Meatwagon, when owner Yianni Papoutsis was touring South East London cooking diner-style burgers to queues of people in pub gardens. Now the operation has moved to a semi-permanent location in New Cross called #Meateasy, after the wagon was stolen by some dastardly unknowns before Christmas. The small dining room above a disused pub features a small cocktail bar, dingy lighting, and menus chalked on the wall, and is jam packed five nights a week. More

Taste Test: Walkers Potato Chips New American Cheeseburger Flavor

Ibrahim Salha 17 comments

To coincide with the FIFA Soccer World Cup, Walkers (the British name for Lay's) have released 15 unappealing-sounding flavors of their potato chips, each one influenced by a different country. I ignored the temptation of Australian BBQ Kangaroo and shunned the frankly shocking sounding English Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding for a packet of American Cheeseburger. More
