We came across the butcher, the baker (we’re still looking for the candle stick maker) and wanted to share them with you….
THE BUTCHER: The East London Steak Company is an online butchers specializing in beef. The concept is simple, from block – to box – to grill all in 24 hours! The company was set up by butcher James George and chef Richard Turner after discovering a lack of places supplying “superb quality steak, time and time again. The East London Steak Co. is out to change all that”.
There are a number of reasons the beef tastes so good – all cattle is well bred and looked after from small, family owned farms, meat is dry aged on the bone for a minimum of 28 days and all joints are hand cut to order.
There are plenty of cuts to choose from and some burgers, sausages, ribs and minced meat thrown in. There is also a classic steak rub of mixed spices, some burger sauce and a selection of wine and beers. Delivery is free on orders over £25 and £5 for those under.

THE BAKER: We discovered the Bakery at Arch 402 this weekend having lots of great things about it. The Bakery is very eco-friendly; all of the ingredients are Organic, fair-trade and as local as possible. They also use seasonal and wild foraged food when possible and food that would have otherwise gone to waste, like bananas that are brown. But they don’t stop there, they 70% of the energy they use is renewable energy, they compost kitchen waste and all packaging is eco friendly.
But what about the products we hear you cry? The bread is fresh, crusty and divine, the handmade granola and mueslis get two thumbs up and the vegan, natural and refined sugar free cakes are sin free. We do have one small request….buy next door and make it into a seated area, please?
