London Street Foodie On Tour: the best festival food highlights at Wilderness Festival

Lucy Francis and friend eating a Le Bun burger at Wilderness Festival (Photo: Lucy Francis) It’s a tricky thing blending fine dining with street food, art, dance, comedy, partying, philosophy, crafts, parents, kids games, and more. But I’d say that at Wilderness they got it bang on last weekend. I went for the first time this year, thinking it was just going to be a load of people having banquets in tents, and getting up for the occasional boogie... Read More

Epicurean at St Katharine Docks: London street food from around the world

World Food Market at St Katharine’s Docks 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 anything trendy, what you get alongside all the brilliant new trading talent is some utter crap; made by people who’ve just... 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

100 London street foods: Berwick Street Market

Sub-Terrannean sandwich from Sub Cult, Berwick Street Market, Soho Last week I took a few days off to have a holiday in London. This, I think, is one of the ultimate luxuries, as it enables you to scamper about in the city while everyone else is at work. You can delve into art galleries you never normally get into during the working week, linger in boutiques that on most days close at the very moment you step out of the office, and have coffee and... Read More
