A little London street food van: but who is it?

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 to get a bit of a following.

The next time I went past the little van had disappeared but another time, this time on my way back from work, I saw a navy blue shape on the side of the road tucked in between a few cars.

The story doesn’t get any more exciting than that I’m afraid but what I can say is that the owner of the van has said he will give whoever guesses his name some free food.

So the question is, what is under the blue cover and what can you buy from it? Who knows? Well, I do, he does, and now you have to start guessing… comment below or email. We’ll close the competition – if you can call it that – on Sunday 22nd July.
