About

  • ABOUT ME: Until February 2015 I was the food editor at the London Evening Standard, where I had worked for seven years, until I went freelance. I continue to cover food and travel for the paper and for various other publications including ES Magazine, Foodism, Escapism, The Sunday Times (newspaper, The Dish magazine, Style magazine), The Independent, Square Meal, and the Berry Bros. & Rudd blog, and wrote all the restaurant lists for the London Design Guide 2015. I’ve always loved finding and eating street food but in mid-2011 I had a feeling it was going to take over the city. Since then, I believe it really has (see my NY post). On a four-month sabbatical in 2013/14 I visited lots of the (street) food hubs of Australia and parts of South East Asia and kept up the blog along the way. See the On Tour section for more details.
  • ABOUT THE BLOG: LondonStreetFoodie.co.uk is designed to celebrate and track down the best of this city’s street food. It covers new and existing traders and, where possible, the food reviewed is all paid for by me. NB: If someone does give me a free sample, I’m afraid it does not guarantee a review on the blog.
  • WHY: It might come in handy if you’re looking for somewhere new to visit on your lunch break, if you like an adventure or if you’re looking for a place to take a date but can’t face the formality of a restaurant.
  • WHAT: There are carts, trucks and vans on the move for us to hunt down, trading everything from burgers, burritos and scallops to hot sandwiches and churros. Mostly these taste delicious, contain high quality, locally sourced ingredients and cost very little.
  • WARNING: Part of the fun is trying to find them so please excuse any info that is outdated as they often change their plans without warning. LSF is a growing blog about London street food so although there is lots to tell you about that isn’t listed here yet, it soon will be. Hopefully there will always be something different the next time you visit…
  • IN THE NEWS: It has been lovely to be featured in the following publications: Woman and Home’s 100 best food blogs, Telegraph.co.uk, The Descrier, HostelBookers.com blog, Street Feast blog, Citizen M reports, The Hungry Bea, The Lifestyle Agency blog, London Evening Standard, Flavour First , The Jellied Eel

    I am Uk’s first Trader of the original Berliner Döner kebap in Camden/Inverness street market.
    If you want to know, how an authentic, delicious Berliner Döner kebap tastes, you should come to Camden on the Inverness street market this weekend to experience a great different between the Londoner mostly “Doner” crap and an real tasty Döner from Berlin’s streets!

    Hi Victoria,

    I discovered your blog this morning, amazing, great work ! Well, here is more work : you can try the best arancini in town every Sunday at Chatsworth rd market . Look for “Don Arancini” and taste his range of gourmet risotto balls. As a light snack or a more substantial meal you can choose from a selection of deep and well balanced flavours . Here are some of the more popular options :

    – Wild mushrooms and Pecorino romano
    – Sundried tomatoes, goats cheese and basil
    – Chorizo, chilli and saffron
    – Smoked gammon and mozzarella

    You can check Don Arancini on Facebook

    or on http://www.donarancinicatering.co.uk

    Take care

    I’m looking for a really good English breakfast stall. I’ve come across them at festivals, but not in London. The kind that does bacon, egg and sausage in great bread.

    • London Street Foodie says:

      Try Original Fry Up Material. People rave about them. Also Mother Flipper (burgers normally) does a mean breakfast version st Brockley market – or used to anyway. Keep me posted if you find a good one.

  11. For Breakfast you should try Social Meat Club at Brook Green Market and Kitchen West Kensington, their signature flakey smoked salmon is a Market staple, soft hearty chunks of salmon dressed with nordic pickled veg, creme fraiche and dill is unforgettable. But if you are looking for a traditional English Breakfast stall then you will really enjoy Pick Organics Farm, they do a great bacon, egg and sausage roll, the roll is by Astons bakery – all ingredients are organic. Come and check it out

    Hi Victoria,

    I am actually launching food tech startup which I think would be very interesting for you, called Foodster (www.foodster.london), given that we focus on tastings of British artisan products.

    Foodster quite simply gives customers the ability to try before they buy food online – surprisingly a completely untapped opportunity before us. Customers receive actual bitesize tasters in their subscription box of products they have chosen to sample.

    We focus on taste and informed purchasing of food in the online space, not just snacking.

    Foodster is launching on Indiegogo in October and we currently have 9 products ready to showcase in the first month with more artisan foodpreneurs coming onboard every week.

    Does this sound interesting to you?

    Best wishes,

    Avi

      Hi there,
      Thank you, and that’s a very kind offer – I tend to go to markets anonymously most of the time though. Good to know about your burrito though.
      All the best,
      Victoria
