The thing about street food, for me, is that I always know that finding and then eating it takes me on some sort of an adventure. I’ve talked about this before, of course (see post on travelling around the world without leaving London here), but part of the reason for starting this blog was to […]

British Street Food Awards 2015 – what we ate

Meanwhile people like me went, ate, were part of the winning team in Lisa Markwell’s ‘Have I Got Foods For You?’ quiz (yes, this actually happened), and then waddled home again.
