After the initial success in Tottenham Court Road, Arcade has opened up a second site in the iconic Battersea Power Station, boasting 13 total cuisines across the huge menu. Sat on the first floor, this vast space has plenty of seating, with various eateries lining the edge of the venue, a large bar sits at the back of the room, and a second by the entrance, ensuring you’re never far from your favourite tipple.
There are plenty of new faces at this second site, plus a couple of old favourites. You’ll find a variety of cuisines available, making it a great spot for groups as there’s something for everyone, and with 13 different options, you’re certainly not short on choice.
London may have a number of burger joints, but Arcade is home to one of the city’s most popular smashed burgers, with Manna bringing the American classic as well as chicken burgers, waffle fries and some indulgent milkshakes. Like things in buns? You’ll also want to check out Bao, the Taiwanese hotspot that has gained a cult following in London since its opening, where you can tuck into braised pork with peanut powder in the classic bao buns, or the likes of fried chicken with hot sauce. Continuing the Asian theme, there are also Indian, Nepalese, Thai, Japanese and Cantonese offerings, serving everything from momo dumplings to chicken biryani.
One of the latest additions to the space is Strakers, which comes from social media chef Thomas Straker, where he serves up the infamous flatbreads from his restaurant in Notting Hill (if you know, you know). Think fresh flatbread cooked in a wood fired oven, then topped with options like burnt chilli mussel butter and chives, or confit duck leg with pickled onion.
Not sure what to choose? Don’t worry, you can find yourself a table and grab a little bit of everything to work through - and we don’t blame you if you do. Arcade Battersea is walk-in only, so also makes a great choice for a last minute catch up.
