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.

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 […]

UK music festivals: where’s the street food?

Not so long ago I wrote a piece for the Standard picking out one or two dishes that people might enjoy trying at various UK music festivals. In some cases this was easy because of the interesting selection of quality food available, but at some of the bigger, more commercial festivals, it seemed like noone appeared to care what […]

Wow, it feels like rather a long time since I did a street food tour of London. For a while after I launched the blog, it was the only thing I did on Saturday mornings. And then I realised I probably needed not to spend four hours eating fried chicken, schnitzel sarnies and flapjacks – […]
