The Wapping Project - Wapping Wall E1W

I think I have found the perfect bolt hole for Brunch, we walked down to Wapping Food on Sunday and I have to say I’ve fallen in love with the place. Also home to the Wapping Project the building is a converted industrial pump house and is a mixed use arts and restaurant space.

The building is huge with amazing glass windows letting fantastic amounts of light into the dining area. Tables nestled happily between pumps and machinery...

The brunch menu is simple and has a good mix of healthy and indulgent options to please most appetites. I went the full English, my hangover was threatening to make an appearance and I thought the fried goodness would help me through to the other side.

It was really good and a really large portion as well so well worth the money. The Lady went for the Scrambled Eggs with Girolles and Truffle Oil on Toast and really enjoyed it. Our Producer friend chose a portion of the Waffles with Stewed Fruit and Chantilly Cream. All delicious, all good sized portions...

The building is a photographers wet dream, everywhere you look there is a photo waiting to be taken. Unsurprisingly due to the unusual size and nature of the venue it is also often home to some excellent modern art.

Currently hosting a major installation by Paul Bouden, the back room holds some fantastic examples his graphic design in a commission by the Wapping Project to celebrate the London Design Festival.

I definitely cannot wait to come back down here to try the proper menu. If you enjoy food and art this place comes highly recommended!

  1. I was in Umbria earlier this year I had scrambled eggs with truffle shaved on top... a real foodie dream of creamy egginess and perfumed flakes...Sadly, though, it is the fry up that has me dribbling like an old fart... sounds great for a future trip... L

  2. Food and art together-what more could you want?
    There's a brasserie in Newcastle which is housed in an art gallery in an old biscuit factory.http://www.brasserieblackdoor.co.uk/
    Love those sort of places.
    That breakfast had me drooling..

  3. Salts Mill in Bradford is another place that fuses art and food. It also has an amazing home ware shop as well with loads of designer kitchen goodies as well!

  4. Fantastic blog! I actually love how it's simple on my eyes as well as the data is well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!
