March 28-29: Lonely Planet does street food

BACKPACKERS, this one is for you. Lonely Planet is running its first street food festival in east London to tie in with the launch of its new book, The World’s Best Street Food.

There will be an indoor street market at Village Underground in Shoreditch where a load of great international food traders from Ghana, Japan, Spain and India will each be cooking up dishes based on recipes from the book.

I haven’t yet seen this tome but I hear the idea behind it is a look at 100 street food dishes taken from markets, hawker centres and bazaars all over the world.

To book, check out the Crowd Surge website, choose either Wednesday 28th or Thursday 29th March 2012 (7-10pm on both days) and book tickets for a tenner. For that you’ll get three sample dishes and a night of fun at the VU.
