Ugly Fish Friday Pop Up in Whitecross Street Market near Moorgate

This is an excellent one-off event - a pop-up food stall to promote 'ugly fish' and encourage people to eat a wider range of fish.  

"Following the success of its Ugly Fish Fridays, launched as a stand against the fishing quota system that sees dead fish thrown back into the sea; niche City caterer Lusso is staging an “Ugly Fish Friday Pop Up” at Whitecross Street Market in London on Friday 6th July.
Assisted by BBC 2′s “The Fisherman’s Apprentice”; Monty Halls, and his fisherman mentor Nigel Legge, Lusso’s expert chefs will produce street food that’s elite food with a lunch-time pop up stall serving a range of delicious fish dishes using sustainable species of fish landed by Nigel in the  Cadgwith Cove in Cornwall the previous day. The stall will start serving lunch from 11 am and will continue until they run out of fish.
Less well-known and fashionable than their more glamorous but increasingly overfished cousins, Lusso’s Ugly Fish are as good to eat as they are unlovely to look at.  Most importantly, they are all species on the Marine Stewardship Council’s approved list of sustainable fish."

  1. Thanks for the link!

  2. How do we book a table and how much is it?

  3. It's a street food stall, so you just queue up. No tables! I'd take about £10 and I'm sure you'll get lots for that!
