Straight after I graduated from University, I started working at a company in Waterloo – only a five minute walk from Southbank Market. This, of course, had its positives and negatives. On the negative side, it led me to gain three kilo’s during my first two months at my job; but on the positive side, I discovered amazing street food spots, whereby I was entitled to a discount just by telling them that I worked in one of the offices nearby. And if that was a secret only known to Waterloo-workers, then whoops!
One of the amazing places I had the chance to eat at every time I went to Southbank Market (and by that I mean pretty much every Friday) was Hank’s; a New Orleans inspired food stall that, without a doubt, has the most delicious Loaded Cajun fries I have ever tasted.
Since I changed jobs a few months ago, I haven’t been able to give Hank’s a weekly visit anymore, and a couple of days ago I found out that they had open a new food stall in Camden Town that only served my dear Loaded Fries – WHAT?! Needless to say, it only took me one day after their opening to make my way to Camden and give Hank’s some love again.
I haven’t yet decided what makes it so special: either the Cajun spice and the super crispy chips, or the fact that they torch the cheese on top of the slow cooked beef. Just like this…
And yes, the two people working behind the counter helped me to get a good flame shot – extra points for Hank’s.
The end result? The best-loaded fries you will EVER try!
Hank’s is also a member of KERB (a.k.a my dream job/company), which is in charge of managing many of London’s food traders and assist in its promotion, business uplifting and many other aspects. As they have quoted on their website, KERB chooses to work with traders that “are really doing it for street food in London”. So if you see the sign below at a food truck or stall, you know it’s good stuff.
If you have been lucky enough to try Hank’s food before, let me know! If not, I expect you to find your nearest one and give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
