Stir’s waffle maker hosts pop-up in East London.

September 9th 2016

This week has been pretty busy for the Stir team, so we thought it only fair to reward ourselves by heading down to The Common, e2 last night to sample the waffles from one of the hottest up and coming food pop-ups.

Waffle Lion makes some of the tastiest savoury and sweet waffles in the UK – in our opinion anyway – and pleasantly surprises foodies with unusual flavours and toppings.

We would have been foolish not to try all three waffles on the menu, including:

-Slow roasted mutton shoulder with sticky pomegranate molasses, maple syrup yogurt, pomegranate seeds and fresh mint
-Ragstone Goats Cheese, caramelised onions and rocket, drizzled with maple syrup
-Strawberries, blackberries and whipped cream, doused in maple syrup (perfect for the sweet toothed!)

If the menu doesn’t speak for itself, let’s just say, it was delicious.

What made the whole evening even more special is that Head Chef and Founder of Waffle Lion is none other than our very own Account Executive, Thorne Addyman.

Addyman, who hails from Wales, took a break from PR to prepare the evening’s delights. With a queue snaking outside the door, he barely had a minute to spare, even with the help of some of his friends who were on hand to serve Prosecco and deliver the scrumptious food to the packed tables.

Keeping composed whilst cooking, Addyman said: “One of my favourite things about cooking food is how it brings people together. Last night, there was a table which sat 40 people and loads of new friends were made!”

Although we’re disappointed and hardly surprised that there aren’t any leftovers for us this morning, we’re already excited for the next Waffle Lion pop-up.
