SquareMeal Review of
Chefs Jun Tanaka & Mark Jankel set up the Street Kitchen initiative to provide seasonal lunchtime food to ‘eat & go’. Following the success of the Airstream on Finsbury Avenue Square, the
duo have launched The Hatch – a service kiosk set against the backdrop of the Testbed1 experimental arts/events space in Battersea. The menu is a moveable daily feast, but expect ‘boxes’ containing
the likes of braised beefs with celeriac purée, mustard dressing & herb breadcrumbs or grilled fillet of hot-smoked salmon with marinated beets, purple sprouting broccoli & rosemary-crushed
potatoes followed yoghurt or caramel mousse with poached apples & pears. Aspiring artists & others can also take advantage of the nearby Doodle Bar, where creative scrawling & sipping
go hand in hand.
