London Street Food tips in 200: Warung Tempeh, Leather Lane Market

Leather Lane market is one of the oldest London street food markets, yet even the quickest visit will prove that this way of eating is still thriving. In fact, things are better than that. Even on a fantastically rainy day – when you’d think everyone would order food to be delivered straight to their seats so they didn’t have to […]

London Street Food Tips in 200: Trattoria Enoteca, Mercato Metropolitano

Some people say they don’t really ‘get’ pasta. I can’t understand this, but it’s also fine by me because I have quite a lot of time for it, and them not eating it leaves more for the those of us who do. And because I like it, I write quite a lot about it. So for the third in […]

LSF On Tour: ordering a hot pot in 8 seconds at Singapore’s People’s Park Food Complex

8.45pm and a woman is talking at me, urging me to decide what I want to order for my hot pot. Things happen fast around here. “Lady, do you want meat? Fish? Vegetables? Which ones? Tell me quick!” Sensing the urgency, yet not speaking the language, I pick at random. Greens feature highly, as do pieces […]

In memory of Wilkes McDermid – where these London Street Food traders are now

This time two years ago a fine food photograher friend Wilkes McDermid, who was probably the biggest supporter of the London street food scene, left us. Last year, with the help of lots of people, we ran a tribute post to him on this blog. This year, I thought that rather than look back that […]

Devi’s pav bhaji naan ‘pizza’ – and an ode to competitive London street food eating

In five years of writing this London street food blog, I’ve seen a lot of competitive eating. Sure there have been actual competitions involving people racing against each other to eat or make street food – anyone remember Ribstock or Big Apple Hot Dogs’ Blog Eat Blog topping comp? But there is another kind of […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
