Even before Covid-19 the popularity of pop up food venues was growing. Lockdown has made them even more popular!
Pop ups have been an affordable way for people to get into the hospitality business. Affordable, but quality food on the high street without the fuss of waiting for a table and all the formal stuff that involves sitting down for a meal.
As a family, we have not been able to go out to restaurants but as lockdown has started to lift, shops have reopened and we have been walking out on the high street more. I was amazed at how many pop up food venues there were!
Yesterday, me and my Dad @Jonathan Riley were out in Bath to go and get a cricket bat and ball. We found this place and queued up (it was called LJ Hugs as shown in the photo) for it. When we got near the front we could hear the people inside the stall shouting "Yeah, coming right up!" and "What can I get you?". You could say they had lots of energy like the cajun food they served! When we got to the front of the massive queue, we ordered a spicy chicken wrap and a sweet potato wrap. They were so delicious!!
Yesterday was the first time we actually bought food from a pop up stall, it was brilliant, and obviously Bath attracts lots of tourists, but pop ups are popping up everywhere now! It is great to support local businesses and there is nothing to be afraid of!
I am back at school on Monday, and I will try to write another article next weekend.
Thanks for reading, I will se you later!
