LOVEN Presents' Wood-fired Pizzas at the Ora Brewery in N17


Wood-fired Neapolitan pizza 🍕🍕🍕from @lovenpresents - now cooking Fri-Sun at the @orabrewing taproom in N17 (+ available for deliveries on Thursdays too)

LOVEN Presents was started by Kate & Fabrizio in 2014 from their home by the river Lea in 2014. They have now landed at the brewery, still quite near to the river, serving a very impressive range of pizzas at London's only Italian craft brewery; surely a match made in heaven! 

I visited last weekend and had the 'Dora' with tomatoes (cherry and sun dried), courgette, mozzarella, goats cheese, pesto & basil, a killer combo (& I'm sort of trying to be a little bit veggie this month).

It was great to see Kate and Fabrizio again, and to tuck into some of Ora's beers. There is lots of seating and it's under cover, so it's a great option even on a chilly day.

When - Fridays to Sundays, when the taproom is open

Fri - 5pm-9pm 

Sat - 1pm-10pm

Sun - 1pm-5pm 

Plus - LOVEN offers delivery via delivery apps on Thursday (+ Fri-Sun, I think)

Where - The Ora Brewery, Unit 16a, Rosebery Industrial Park, London N17 9SR

Enak's Indonesian Pop-up at Boxpark Croydon for January 2022


Enak has taken over the pop-up kitchen unit at Boxpark in Croydon, CR0, serving delicious Indonesian curries and more every day for January 2022.  

My picture shows the jackfruit curry, with two two cabbage, corn and carrot fritters.  It was my second trip to Enak in a couple of months (last time was at a brewery in the Bermondsey Beer Mile), and I had to go back to try the jackfruit; last time I had the aubergine.

Joe from Enak serves a completely #vegan menu - and as a meat eater I can testify that you certainly don't miss the meat - amazing taste and texture, and very filling.

When - Daily for January 2022

Serving (approximately) from noon til 9pm)

Where - Boxpark Croydon, 99 George St, London CR0 1LD
