Street Kitchen: a new London street food arch

Street Kitchen’s new ‘hatch’ near London Fields station, east London It occured to me the other day that the running theme of my most recent London street food adventures documented on here has been ‘accidental’ or ‘impromptu – that is, I haven’t ended up eating food that I’ve planned in advance to eat, I’ve just happened upon it, dived in for a slice of the pie, and before I know it it’s become a blog post. So... Read More

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. I’m a bit of both, so I’m probably the ideal customer (but then we knew that anyway, because I blog about street food). 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 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, kiwi fruits, apples, peaches, lychees, pak choi, spinach, basil, stacks and stacks of green beans. There are people shopping, bags rustling, shouting,... Read More

The first lot relates to actual street food traders, mostly in London; the second part includes cookbooks with street food-related recipes in them. I’ve... Read More

Back at Brockley Market and Mother Flipper rumours

There are lots of great markets in London to go to on a Saturday morning but yesterday I made a special effort to head over to a little one that I particularly like which is organised by a photographer called Toby Allen and held each week in Lewisham College car park. Brockley Market celebrated its one year anniversary a fortnight ago and since I couldn’t make it to the party, I thought I’d potter gently over to see if it could sort out... Read More
