Discover Canary Wharf: A Culinary Delight and a Booming Property Hub

Calling all foodies, property enthusiasts and urban adventurers! We’ve got such a treat in store for you with this weeks’ episode of the Insider. So get ready to tantalise those taste buds and prep for those property viewings, as we take you on an exciting journey through the ever-thriving Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs area. It’s not just about the skyline here; there’s a lot more bubbling beneath the surface, so let’s go and explore!

A Flourishing Housing Market

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the property scene in Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs, you might have noticed a positive trend. Over the past 2 years, the area has seen significant growth, thanks to factors such as new developments and a thriving local community.

This growth has not only attracted investors but also those seeking to make this dynamic area their home. With easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment, it’s no wonder the residential market is abuzz.

The Cross-Rail Effect

Can we talk about convenience without mentioning the new Cross Rail tube line? Connecting Canary Wharf to the city has never been easier! This new addition has made commutes a breeze and guess what? It has had a positive impact on property values in the area too.

A Culinary Excursion

Who knew that a business district could be a gastronomic paradise? Canary Wharf is not just a hub for bankers and businesses; it has blossomed into a culinary haven with exciting new eateries that deserve a visit (or even two!). Whether you’re a sushi aficionado, an all-out meat feaster or have a penchant for Peruvian cuisine, the abundance of swanky new restaurants has something to suit every palate.

For a fusion of flavours that’ll make your taste buds dance, a must-visit restaurant is the incredible Blacklock on Frobisher Passage, E14. Serving up meaty treats such as lamb cutlets, sirloin steaks and smoked bacon chops, this magnificent venue offers a range of meaty delights that are guaranteed to make your heart sing.

Farmer J on Jubillee Place brings the countryside to the city. With “forkin’ good dishes”  such as Harissa Habibi, Tahini Cauli and Charred Flank Steak, you can guarantee mouth-watering, farm-to-table freshness. Looking for something a bit more laid back? Check out the new street food trucks in Canary Wharfs parks and squares. Haggis toasties (trust us, it’s a banger!) zingy tortilla wraps and Jamaican jerk chicken make casual dining an exotic experience.

Wood Wharf: The Future Is Here

Now, if you haven’t heard about the Wood Wharf development, you’re in for a treat. Under construction, as we speak, Wood Wharf is set to be a mixed-use development comprising offices, residential homes, and retail space. This development is not just about bricks and mortar; it’s about creating a vibrant community and adding a new dimension to Canary Wharf’s rich tapestry.
