It all started in Norfolk, where Jake's dad taught him how to smoke fish in the garden. Fast forward several years and some inspiration by way of Stockholm, he and co-founder Sam have a successful street food business called Allihopa (meaning 'everybody' in Swedish). Together they've been serving Scandinavian style hand smoked fish to Londoners and – until 3rd July – have taken residency at The King & Co pub in Clapham.
Look at that beautiful home cured smoked trout and perfectly crispy fish balls!
Smoked haddock Scotch eggs and Jansson's Temptation – a Swedish take on tartiflette with mushrooms and cream.
Meatloaf with charred cucumber and brown sauce (one of my favourite dishes of the night) and assorted pickles.
Swedish meatballs with mash, pickled cucumbers and lingonberry berry.
We demolished two desserts – a carrot and cardamom delight and a cinnamon bun with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce.
The Allihopa team will be serving these dishes and more until 3rd July at The King & Co, a 5 minute walk from Clapham Common. You won't be disappointed! Disclaimer – I was invited as a guest but all opinions are my own.
