The sun was shining yesterday so we decided to pop along to the Primrose Hill Spring Fair. As imagined, Primrose Hill was bursting with people catching a few rays on the hill and the main high street where the spring fair was taking place was no different.
We hadn’t had lunch so decided to wander around the food section first to see what took our fancy. There were lots of options including burgers, the standard paella and churros that seem to do the rounds at all these fairs, croque monsieur done four ways, yummy salad and quiche stand, Caribbean fish and a selection of middle eastern food.
We started with a pulled pork sausage roll to start with from The Queen’s mainly so that we could snack on something whilst we waited in queue for the Souvlaki Street food stand. The queue was huge and I was slightly concerned that after standing in line for more than 15 minutes that the wraps were going to be disappointing but they definitely weren’t.
I went for ‘the special’ with chicken a delicious warm flat bread smothered with home made tzatziki, a chicken skewer, salad, spices and halloumi. The chicken was succulent, the tzatziki and salad generous and definitely worth the long queue!
Next we had a wander around the stands with lots of lovely things to buy. It was refreshing to see quality stands with enticing things to sell! To keep me going I bought myself a chocolate and salted caramel macaron which was delicious but like all macarons always feel like there is there never enough! So much so that I forgot to take a photo!!
To finish off the day we opted for a beef empanada and despite having eaten empanadas the night before at an argentinian restaurant these were above and beyond with a meaty filling and tasty pastry and more importantly it was piping hot!!
It was a lovely way to spend a May Sunday and hopefully there will be a summer fair soon!
