What was once a bleek empty space beside the M-Shed, is now a bustling Millennial Village. With its quirky menus and uber cool restaurants housed in cargo containers, here’s five reasons to visit Bristol’s newest harbourside development – wapping wharf.
Battered Halloumi at Salt & Malt
With almost everything being slathered in batter and deep fried these days, battered halloumi is on the better end of these battered experiments. It really doesn’t need much of an introduction. It does what it says on the tin. It’s incredibly delicious and will only set you back £4 for a box of four.
Salad at Mokoko Coffee
Don’t be fooled by it’s charade, this is no normal coffee house. At a reasonable £7 a plate (£4 for a small), pile high those pomegranate-baked aubergines and leafy greens for a guilt-free feast that will have you feeling like you might make those New Years resolutions after all – even if they are six months late.
Bubble Tea at CUPP
Once deemed a ‘fad’, bubble tea is fast becoming as common as the espresso, and wapping wharf wouldn’t really be an up-and-comer without a vendor. It’s the tapioca balls that give this popular beverage its name, with these jelly-like pearls adding some flavour to what is essentially a tea-based milkshake. I’m not doing a great job at selling it here am I? I’ll admit a tea-milkshake sounds pretty gross, but it’s a milky sweet treat with some jelly suprises that you really need to try.
Bao at Woky Ko
Woky Ko has a Bao for both the sweet-toothed cookie monsters and the ravenous savoury snakes. MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen has nailed these filled asian steamed buns with offerings such as Salted Caramel Ice Cream or Crispy Duck, Peking Sauce, Leeks and Cucumber.
Sausage Rolls at Pigsty UK
While their sausage rolls are likely to turn even the biggest Greggs fan, it’s their breakfast menu that’s a real head turner. With everything from smashed avocado, to breakfast rolls in sourdough bread you’re really going to want to make Pigsty UK you’re new hangover spot.
