Burns Night at Spitalfields Hawksmoor Bar

January 16, 2020

This Burns Night, Spitalfields Bar will be partnering with Craigellachie Single Malt Scotch and Scottish sandwich maestros Visions Canteen for a night of appreciation of the finer parts of Scottish culture. Expect sandwiches and snacks inspired by the late night food of Glasgow’s West End, music from Scott(ish) DJ Martelo and a selection of cocktails and drams from Craigellachie. But no haggis, no kilts and no poetry.

Matt Scott (aka The Knife from Fife) has spent the last few years learning the art of international sandwiches via stints at Bao (buns) and Bad Sports (tacos) before striking out on his own with the cult favourite Visions Canteen on the ground floor of Protein Studios in Shoreditch. Matt’s sandos are playful, inventive and delicious. Hawksmoor is delighted to have had him create a bespoke selection for this year’s celebration of all things Scottish at Spitalfields Bar on Saturday, 25th January.

Vision Canteen x Hawksmoor Burns Night Scran sandos are Fish supper – Fried cod, Sichuan potato noodles, XO mayo and Mumbai Medley – Amchur potatoes, kachumber, tamarind chutney, raita, while snacks include Bacon fries – Salt & vinegar chicharonnes, pineapple ketchup and Mini Kilmarnock-style steak pies. Drinks will include: Hawkeyethenoo – Craigellachie 13y.o., jalapeño, salted pineapple sod and Nine Inch Nail – Craigellachie 13y.o.
