What to eat at Street Feast's Giant Robot in Canary Wharf

Team Street Feast has launched Giant Robot, a Canary Wharf rooftop dedicated to grub on the go. Here's exactly what you should be eating up in the clouds.

Croquetas at Little José, £6.50 for five

The sensible choice is to grab a bocadillo (Spanish baguette). But who wants to be sensible? Go for the ever-changing but always-brilliant croquetas. Creamy on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Oh, and a portion of the spicy prawn fritters while you’re at it. Double thumbs up.

Clam chowder fries at Bob’s Lobster, £5

The thing to get at Bob’s is the lobster roll, right? Wrong. It’s £17 (sheesh! You can almost go to Burger & Lobster for that) and the brioche is a bit greasy. But oh, the clam chowder fries! They’re things of beauty: a poutine-esque pot of skinny chips buried under a herb-flecked, bacon-specked chowder, with teeny, juicy clams too. Soooo good.

Chipuffalo wings at Thunderbird, £5 for five

Who doesn’t love a wing? In high-end chipotle hot sauce. Better yet, these guys get a twist on the standard style by being breaded first – that sauce plus crunch plus chicken combo really works.

Toffee apple ice cream bun at Yum Bun, £4

You can only get it after 3pm (get the pork with hoi sin while you wait), but it’s worth sticking around for. Trust me. It’s a deep-fried bun smeared with homemade apple sauce, plus a perfect sphere of good-quality vanilla ice cream. On top? Miso caramel and shards of candied walnuts. Happy sigh.

Giant Robot is at Garden Level, Crossrail Place, E14 5AR (tube: Canary Wharf), open daily, 11am-late.
