London Street Foodie On Tour: wallaby burgers from The Dude Food Man and White Guy Does Thai at Trailer Park Melbourne (Melbourne street food part 4)

I am walking furiously up the western side of a park in Melbourne. My hair is blowing around my face and my hands are being whipped by a hostile wind. I can hear loud traffic way up over the side of the park. There are gorgeous eucalyptus trees, children playing on bikes, or with footballs, […]

Fish crates at Footscray Market, West Melbourne

London Street Foodie On Tour: dipping into one of the world’s maddest markets – Footscray (Melbourne street food part 3)

You cannot do a tour of the Melbourne street food scene without a visit here, but spending any sort of time at this gigantic undercovered fresh produce market is like an assault on the senses. Walk in and there are people shouting out with their offers of fruit and veg; there are greens, mangos, papayas, […]

London street food news: burgers on Liverpool Street, a Wapping street food market, London’s latest street food residencies, and more…

Right-o, it’s been great fun telling stories of street food from around the world (here, here, and here) but it’s about time I let you in on some London street food news, since there is plenty to share from the City, Borough, the Square Mile, Wapping, Battersea, Kings Cross, the Southbank and.. Hackney. So, in […]

London Street Foodie On Tour: Melbourne street food part 1

“Oh you MUST go,” people kept saying about the South Melbourne night market. “It’s wonderful… there is sooo much food there,” they drooled, saliva almost falling out of their gobs onto the floor. The night I went it was cold and blustery and not at all the kind of evening you would want to spend […]

London Street Foodie on Tour: Sydney street food part 2

My final Sydney street food related port of call is the Haymarket branch of an ancient institution called Harry’s Cafe De Wheels, a popular pitstop that has been trading pie and mash or pie and peas from its various street outlets since before WWII. Eating there at around 4pm one afternoon is a fellow rucksack […]

London Street Foodie on Tour: Sydney street food part 1

If on my travels so far the Singapore street food scene is the rather sanitised but exceptionally well fed king of it all, then the one in Sydney is like its excitable nephew, just learning the tricks of the trade. There are farmers markets at weekends here but those have been around for a while; […]

London Street Foodie on Tour: Singapore street food Part 2

There was so much here (and this is without even touching on the restaurant scene) so I hope you enjoy reading part 2 of my forage through the hawker centres of Singapore. WHAT I ATE (cont…) (ratings: * yeah, alright, ** mmm, *** now we’re talking, **** yeehaa, ***** I’m going back for more) *****Ondeh […]

London Street Foodie On Tour: Singapore street food Part 1

Writing about Singapore street food is not like writing about London street food. It is a beast of a thing, made up of many markets, hawker centres and stalls on the streets. It is not trendy, as it is in London (oh come on!), it is just a way of life; all sorts of people […]

London Street Foodie On Tour: OKAN, Brixton: Japanese street food

OK picture this. It is May, it is hot and my sister and I are in Tokyo having spent the day wandering around the city with our excitable guide Mazumi. Our hour-by-hour itinerary is useful but tonight we feel like breaking away from it. So we decide to flee for an evening of robot wars, […]
