Mussel Up

London is a smorgasbord of pop-up food ventures at the moment. I've been to a few, but my favourite so far has been Mussel Men. I heard about them ages ago, then got contacted by them out of the blue for something business-related. I've been trying to get down to actually sample the shellfish delights myself and tonight, finally, the planets aligned.

Thanks to my computer acting up, I have 2.5 seconds to write this post. So the pictures will have to do. GO.

Just make sure you try the Prawn on the Lawn Scotch Egg, the oysters, the delicious fat Shetland mussels, the AMAZING chips and the waffle. Oh, and the Sprizzato spritz. So, everything, basically.

Oh, and make sure you play Thumb Wars with Cap'n Bob. I lost, even with long fake nails.

Mussel Men are at Brew For Two in Hackney in east London all weekend - perfect Easter treat. Thank you for having me, Robin!
