Industrial eating at The Wapping Project


I am a sucker for inventive renewal of old industrial properties, turning defunct factories into libraries, museums, shopping centres or restaurants as in the case of the London-based Wapping Project. Located close to the canals of St. Catherine's Docks, the project is an amazing mix of restaurant, bar and art gallery.

You eat under a high, bricked ceiling surrounded by the machinery of the hydraulic power station. A magnificent space and best of all, the food is of a very high standard, easily makes my top five in London. A bit out of the way, but the Project as well as the interesting walk through the docks make it a strongly recommended outing.

Kjøttbasaren in disguise, Truls? Keep it coming, it might even tempt me to visit London again.

Not Kjøttbasaren by a long shot. Do visit London, I need an excuse to head back to the Wapping resto!

Fair enough, although I am disappointed to see your failure to mention Wapping's proximity to Shadwell; the backyard made famous by the rather inept hoolie flick "ID".

Heh, did in fact stroll along the Shadwell Basin, which did indeed remind of the shambolic ID of the early 90s. Not sure if the later laddish hooligan movies are that much healthier though...
