Kitchen Hijack at The Job Centre

It's not obvious why pub group Antic decided not to have a kitchen in the first place at their Deptford bar, The Job Centre but the team are now making up for lost time, going head to head with Lewisham's #ModelMarket with a street food season called Kitchen Hijack. They explain:

"Having opened its doors in June last year minus a kitchen, Deptford’s newest salon bar is set to welcome London’s finest street food masters to take over its vacant culinary quarters for a series of fast and furious pop-up residencies.
"Launching on Thursday 26th March and running until the arrival of the bar’s permanent menu,Kitchen Hijack brings together a selection of the freshest emerging vendors currently trading on the street food circuit. Championing top-notch produce and tantalising flavours, Kitchen Hijack will serve a variety of irresistible buns, braised and barbecued meats and vegetarian treats from the comfort of your local.

"To keep you on your toes throughout the event, each hijacker will be allocated a three-day stint, rotating every Thursday of each week. So hurry, once the week is out so is the vendor!

"Popping up across the first five weeks will be Oh My Dog, traditional Kansas City BBQ Prairie Fire, Bill or Beak, meatball maniacs The Meat Heads and cheese toastie champs The Cheese Truck.

"First to hijack the Job Centre’s kitchen will be hotdog extraordinaires Oh My Dog, serving the finest German franks and veggie dogs, loaded with the tastiest toppings in town. Keep your eyes peeled for the Hijack’s pedigree hotdog Deptford Dachshund, served with North Carolina Pulled Pork, Mature Cheddar & OMD! Barbecue Sauce – dog’s a good un’!

"Throughout the launch weekend the Job Centre will host a series of live music events, DJ slots and one-off must-does. On Thursday 26th South East London DJ collective Pineapple Jam will provide the beats to your eats, spinning the finest disco, funk and soul. If gin’s you’re thing, learn about Edinburgh’s first gin distillery in over 150 years with Pinkering’s Gin free taster session on Saturday 28th – plus loads more!

"Be you a street food junkie or an intrepid foodie, Kitchen Hijack has a bite for every belly. Cheers to that Deptford!"
