'I'm a foodie, fashionista and freelance copywriter"

Packed Full of Flavour
This luscious, monstrous creation is the brainchild of Nick Wiloughby, the founder of Dixie Union.
Their slow cooked pulled pork burgers have received rave reviews across London. Dixie Union is the final result of Nick's time in the deep south, where his love of southern food grew into what ten years in the making has become the Dixie Union we know and love.
Recently I visited the World Street Food Festival (WSFF) that took place in South Bank during the April Bank Holiday (18th - 21st April). Definitely a foodie heaven for those local and abroad. Over the four days a handful of quality traders bought with them their signature items and pitched their food vans along the Thames riverside for the masses to enjoy their offerings. As you ventured down Queens Walk the enticing aromas were absolutely phenomenal and a true testament to the multiculturalism that has embraced the city.
Dixie Union was one of the stalls at the WSFF and had people queuing up to try their pulled pork burger. The lure was of course the aroma of slow cooked pork and the enormous pot it was roasting in.
The burgers were extremely flavoursome, filled with their signature pork, slaw and BBQ sauce.

The only downfall (these are the words of my partner) was that the burger came in a box, which made it difficult to eat. Eating with a knife and fork is just too George Costanza for our liking. That said, it still got gobbled down.
Dixie Union has a permanent stall set up at the Real Food Market in Covent Garden every Thursday from 11am - 7pm so if you are in the area I do suggest you take on this beautiful creation. You will be begging for more.
