When to hit the London street food markets*

Vauxhall Street Food Garden, SW8 The great thing about London street food markets is that mostly they suit both those who like to plan and those who like to be spontaneous.

Sometimes, I’ll pick a day and a market, book in time with a mate or a date and we’ll scurry off on an adventure together. But if there’s ever a time... Read More

London street food bites 2014

Welsh Rarebit from The Little Welsh Rarebit, Right-o, I’m well aware that it’s been a while since my last post on Jez Felwick’s new street food joint in Shoreditch in September. Someone the other day asked if I still wrote the blog. The cheek of it! Well, the short answer is: yes. The longer answer is: I was off work for a few weeks with vertigo and have slowly been recovering, and I’m glad to say that I’m pretty much back up to normal London... Read More

London Street Foodie On Tour: Berlin street food part I, buns and burgers under a bridge

LONDON X BERLIN While the London street food scene seems to be happily settling into its groove, with parties springing up every weekend and more night markets than ever before, Berlin street food is even more youthful but less self conscious, a little like it is in Melbourne but with a different sort of energy.

My old London street food favourites, Venezuelan Guasacaca London were there, so we ordered those... Read More

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, and others busy on the tennis court. Looking back towards the city, I can see heaps of nodding donkeys, vast industrial corrugated warehouses, concreted space... Read More
