WHERE

SOUTH EAST LONDON

MEETS

NEW ORLEANS

Mixing up Louisiana flavours with a London street vibe – po’ boy sandwiches, crispy fried crawfish balls, hangover busting loaded Cajun fries.

Our Story 1

Hank’s started life in South East London in April 2014, dreamed up by us, Simon and Vic. Bored with office life, we wanted to shake things up and set about planning a trip to the party capital of the Deep South, New Orleans. There we fell in love with the culture, the music, the cocktails and, most importantly, the food.

Our Story 2

Back home we hatched a plan to import some of the vibe of NOLA to our everyday lives. Less than a year later we sold our first po’ boy sandwich in Deptford’s Giffin Square. It was terrifying, exhausting but a big success – we’re proud to say that some of the people we served that day are still our customers now.

Our Story 3

Over the next few months we popped up regularly, learning on the job, eventually hitting the street food jackpot with an invitation to join the opening line up at Lewisham’s Model Market. Since then we’ve joined the legendary street food collective KERB and we can call the game-changing Southbank Centre Market home.

Our Story 4

Over the past few years we’ve evolved and so has our food. We don’t pretend to be too authentic, but revel in the fact that we bring something new to traditional Cajun and Creole flavours. We make everything from scratch at our kitchen in SE8, our meat and fish is all locally sourced and our own recipe spice mixes are even hand-blended in SE London.
