New London Street Food Market – a Q&A with founder Mike Norledge

Boom! Hampstead’s getting a new food market, folk. So what’s the deal? In short, the new London street food and produce market is run by the same people behind the successful Primrose Hill market, so there will be a mix of fresh produce and hot street food to take away. I’m particularly looking forward to breakfast […]

London Street Foodie On Tour: Malaysian street food in Edinburgh

“How are you?” “I’m fine.” That response doesn’t really mean anything, does it? It can be a quick way out of having to go into detail about how everyone is doing your head in at the moment or how things are going swimmingly; it can be a defense mechanism to cover up melancholy or anger. […]

London Street Foodie On Tour: the best festival food highlights at Wilderness Festival

It’s a tricky thing blending fine dining with street food, art, dance, comedy, partying, philosophy, crafts, parents, kids games, and more. But I’d say that at Wilderness they got it bang on last weekend. I went for the first time this year, thinking it was just going to be a load of people having banquets […]

Sunday at Maltby Street Market: still a London street food staple

“Maltby shmaltby – it just gets so busy, there, so I’ve stopped going,” a few people have said to me recently about Maltby Street Market in Bermondsey. Well, fusty friends, I’ve got news. Get down there for Sunday brunch you’ll find it a little quieter… I decided to go to Ropewalk at Maltby Street because I’m writing […]

Wraps from The Athenian at St Katharine's Docks World Food Market

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 […]

Crispy chicken salad from Street Kitchen's new 'hatch' in London Fields

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 […]
