South London’s biggest food and events venue, BOXPARK Croydon, welcomes brand new street food pop-up, Hash Hut, to its diverse range of cuisines this month.
Opening on Monday 21st February for three months, Hash Hut is a unique food concept celebrating the hidden flavours of the humble hash brown, believing they deserve better than the breakfast hype or ‘side dish’ treatment.
Hash Hut brings hash browns front and centre stage on its menu, dressing up the popular snack into high-quality, Michelin-level golden goodness. Born in a fine dining restaurant, Hash Hut is on a mission to create the world’s best hash browns.
On the menu, classic dishes include ‘The Hash Hut Chip’, a wonderful stick of spud made perfect for dipping in roast garlic mayo, parmesan or fresh truffle. Another signature dish is ‘The Hatsu’, a twist on the Katsu curry with classic hash browns topped with panko-coated chicken thighs, marinated in glorious garlic goodness and fried to a crunchy climax. Dishes range from £4 to £9.
In addition to the staple dishes, Hash Hut will feature a revolving menu with special appearances from the hash brown family, focused on fresh and seasonal produce. This will include ‘Bangers and Hash’, ‘Raclette Hash’ and ‘Smoked Ancho Chilli Ragu’.
Founded by British Chef, formerly at Michelin-starred Alchemilla, James Sharp dreamt the concept of Hash Hut whilst working at a fine dining restaurant in Nottingham. At the end of the night, James would take any leftover hash browns and combine with delicious toppings such as Black Garlic caramel to fresh truffle, and smoked Cuttlefish, to serve to the chefs as an end of day treat. This sparked the idea of showcasing hash browns and topping them with recipes cooked with the attention to detail and flavour they deserve, along with techniques and skills learned at an exceptional level of cooking.
After a number of pop ups and festivals across the UK, Hash Hut became a hit and the team are set to propel Hash Browns to the pinnacle of cuisine where they belong, searching for a permanent location to call home.
Find The Hash Hut in the pop-up kitchen at BOXPARK Croydon until 15 May 2022.
