London Street Foodie on Tour: festival street food

Glasto what Glasto? Bog off with your oh-so-uhmazing stories of getting lost in a field with glitter on your face… we’re onto other festivals now. Well. Hear me out. Anyone who reads this blog will know that I have an aversion to music festival planners who don’t seem to pay any attention to the food […]

Epicurean at St Katharine Docks: London street food from around the world

Now that street food is, er, trendy, and has been for a while, the volume of emails or tweets I get from people saying ‘I’ve quit my job and started a street food van – do you have any idea of where I can trade?’ has increased a lot. And, call me cynical, but with […]

Street Kitchen: a new London street food arch

It occured to me the other day that the running theme of my most recent London street food adventures documented on here has been ‘accidental’ or ‘impromptu – that is, I haven’t ended up eating food that I’ve planned in advance to eat, I’ve just happened upon it, dived in for a slice of the […]

LSF on tour: finding Turkish street food down a back alley in Istanbul

Last week my incredibly talented artist cousin/close friend/ultimate dance partner Daisy Perkins – who having just left Pakistan is currently sketching her way round Istanbul – sent me a message. It said: “I just had the best fresh fish street food wrap that I think exists! It’s made with a lorra love (and a lorra time!) by this […]

Burgers at Berwick Street Market

Some of the best things happen when you’re least expecting them to. Like last Thursday, when a cancelled lunch meeting threw up an accidental London street food opportunity. This one wasn’t anything new. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. And it certainly wasn’t planned. But it just happened to slot in rather nicely as […]

Wilkes McDermid: remembering the best supporter of London street food

A year ago today a man named Wilkes McDermid left this world. As well as being a brilliant friend to many he was also someone who was well known by lots of people in the London street food world and wider food industry because of his continual and enthusiastic support of their work and food. […]

Adventures in Piccadilly: new London street food market – with Michael Fassbender*

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 […]

London street food: Sea Dog at the Southbank Centre Market

When I was younger my family would go on very long drives all the way to north east Scotland to visit my ‘Scottish granny’ who lived in Banffshire, and my brother, sister and I would all sit in the backseat of the car mostly arguing or sleeping. My parents, always thinking up solutions on how […]
