Boxpark Croydon, Coqfighter and Bang Bang – Street Food review

After the first working week, we went to the center of Croydon to show to our new aupair how does her new part of her life look like and what she can find around. And at the end of the day, we ended up in Boxpark again so I can have gotten opportunity to review other street food. This time, I did not know what I want. Woman, simple. So I went for Vietnamese fried noodles from Bang Bang and my husband chose chicken burger from Coqfighter Chicken & Beer.

Vietnamese cuisine is quite famous in the Czech Republic as Vietnamese are the largest immigrant community and third ethnic minority over all.  Vietnam has gone through long phases of war and political conflict, as well as cultural shifts, the vast majority of the Vietnamese people have been living in poverty. Therefore, the ingredients for Vietnamese food are often very inexpensive but nonetheless, the way they are cooked together to create a yin-yang balance makes the food simple in appearance but rich in flavour and it reflects their lifestyle.

However, unfortunately I did not pick typical Vietnamese food but I am sure, I am going to do it next time. As in Boxpark was football match ongoing we picked beer as our drink. Czech Staropramen. When you enter Bang Bang, not long menu is waiting for you – as I really prefer that so you do not need to go through many things and quickly pick what has caught your eye. And so did! I love noodles, I can eat them over and over. So I picked fried Pho noodles with chicken. However, you can pick from different types of noodle dishes such as non – spicy soups and spicy soup with rice or vermicelli noodles or vermicelli noodle salads.

My husband went this time for fried chicken burger ‘Green chilli cheese’ from Coqfighter. You are warmly welcomed there and I have to say, menu is as well simply and easy to pick. I am really big fan of it.

And how was it over all? Fried noodles were delicious full of flavour and I would definitely get them again. However next time, I am going to try any other of Vietnamese noodles there. And burger? I do not usually go for burger and if I can pick something instead I would do it. But! This fried chicken burger was soooo good. This ‘quite young’ company and its street food in Boxpark in Croydon has gained my ‘burger’ admiration!

So you, who are around, drop by and have delicious burger or try something else and let me know!

Enjoy summer time (still)!

    1. Thank you! It was really nice day put with the whole family. And we survived the week! 😁👶 And our little one was by the end of the week not crying so badly when I was leaving, so it made me happy. And even more when I opened the door and all excitement that I am back 😂 All those messed up feelings for me and he hasn’t forgotten mummy 😁😁
