Insight Off The Beaten Track – SlowBurn

@Insight Hospitality we are always on the lookout for exciting products, suppliers, Artisan companies and offering our support to local businesses.

Our journey this week takes us to a North East London factory by day – a pop-up restaurant by night. Healthy meals, slow cooked with sustainability in mind.

Delicious vegan and vegetarian focused sharing plates and wood fired dishes in Walthamstow shared in a space with London’s only craft jean makers Blackhorse Lane Ateliers.

Also famous for its smoked chicken, brined overnight, then a special house rub and Gochujang applied, finally smoked over apple wood it is a firm customer favourite.


Sheep ricotta and wild garlic agnolotti, nettle sauce

Was a standout dish, delicate pillows of pasta filled with pungent wild garlic and creamy sheep’s ricotta, finished with an earthy nettle sauce.


Sweet potato, smoked Jerusalem artichoke cream, Cavalo nero pesto, curry oil

Charred sweet potato wedges, dressed with a smooth flavoursome artichoke cream, finished with a vibrant black cabbage pesto and a spiced curry oil.

SlowBurn turns a working industrial backdrop into something quite informal and quite fetching.

Walk past rolls of denim and lines of machinery to reach the restaurant tables laid out at the back of the site.

Chef Chavdar Todorov delivers a menu with depth of flavour using high quality seasonal ingredients.

Open Friday 5.30-10pm, Sat 12-3pm, 5-10pm, Sun 12-3pm, 5-9pm
