Soho Food Tour

The rain stopped just in time this afternoon for the annual Soho Food walking tour. The guided tour, run by Dr Emily Falconer, is part of the Level 6 module Food, Taste and Consumption, but is open to anyone in the School of Social Sciences at Westminster. Students gathered in the Regent Street foyer before embarking on seven tops around Chinatown, Greek street, Old Compton Street, Brewer Street and Berwick street. Soho is rich with historical and complex stories of migration, ‘glocalisation’ gentrification and changing patterns of taste and consumption, and everyone got a Pastel de Nata cake to keep them going.
