Shh… secret pop-up dinner in Soho

What’s cooking? Do you want to go downstairs for dinner at Blacks? Wahey, it’s the Olympic Games. It’s a sporting frenzy. And if you’d asked me six months ago what I’d be doing on a Monday night in August, I’d probably have said writing about street food. Certainly not watching gymnastics or swimming races or beach volley ball. Or diving or hockey. But I’m glued. That said, I am also eating plenty of street food and, more importantly,... Read More

Can you guess what this is? Hello streaters, I thought I’d play a little game today. After all, eating street food – especially London street food – is a fun sort of past time. I moved house a few months ago and one morning, just as I was peddling up the road to work, I noticed a little van with a friendly face poking over of the top. We had a chat, he told me he made food and sold it from the little van wherever he felt like it (sort of) and that he was beginning... Read More

London Streating: Part 1 (that’s street food eating)

Lamb burger from The Laughing Stock I’ve done a lot of this recently – eating on the street, that is. Whether it’s because I’ve been more choosy or whether the standards are just higher, I don’t know, but there has been some very good stuff recently. Here are some of my favourites. Part 2 to follow shortly including a few east London things like Street Feast’s new home in Dalston, Hackey Homemade and Broadway Markets. The Laughing Stock Last... Read More
