The annual London Bridge Open Kitchen festival returned this June, celebrating the area’s flourishing food and drink scene. Our favourite local chefs and mixologists were out in force to serve up their creations street-food style in front of the new London Bridge Station.
Here’s what we got up to…
Thousands of foodies were treated to dishes from the likes of Tom Simmons, Londrino, Aqua Shard and Santo Remedio, with Prosecco House keeping crowds hydrated alongside local brewers Hiver, Small Beer Brew Co. and Fourpure.

World renowned chef Leandro Carreira (pictured right) opened his first solo venture Londrino in London Bridge in November 2017.
Aqua Shard descended 31 floors to serve their Braised Hereford beef cheek and Bubble & Squeak with slow cooked duck egg and back summer truffle.
Mexican inspired Santo Remedio served up a selection of their trademark tacos and launched their new 1800 Tequila Coconut Margarita cocktail – available at their dedicated Tequila & Mezcal bar.
If you missed out on this year’s festival, then you can download The London Bridge Open Kitchen Cookbook for recipes from #LBOK18 traders and more.
See you next year!
