Daffodil Soup pops up on Hackney Road with homemade vegan sourdough and local honey

Hackneyites are getting a new six-month pop-up that promises modern British and Mediterranean food with a South African twist, by the name of Daffodil Soup.

It looks like an ethically minded, very East London affair, complete with Walthamstow honey, house granola, nut butters and vegan sourdough, that’ll also be available to take away.

Some of the more substantial plates on offer include whipped smoked cod roe with crispbread and an overnight beef short rib, plus seasonal soups, salads and desserts, all sustainably sourced where possible. And as you’ve no doubt guessed, vegans will be well catered for, including several vegan desserts.

The woman behind the restaurant is journo-turned-chef Linda Galloway, who traded in newspaper life to focus on foodie projects like Shoreditch’s Bootleg Banquet supper club. Time your visit right, you might be able to take in some live music or poetry, which you can enjoy with a glass of Mauro Vergano or Regal Rogue vermouths.

When: Open now (until early July 2018). Sunday to Wednesday from 10-5, Thursday, Friday and Saturday til late.

Where: Honeymoon, 460 Hackney Road, London E2 9EG
