London street food events this summer

The Bell & Brisket salt beef sandwich stall will be around town this summer A new adventure has begun. Last week was spent packing up the room I had been renting in west London and saying goodbye to my friend and former flatmate who is about to get married. My plan for the remainder of the summer is to try living in areas of London I haven’t yet been a resident, by renting off friends or via Air BnB for around a month at a time. So I’m... Read More

London street food: book roundup

Anyone else noticed that there are a lot of street food cook books out in the shops now? Well since I have had the pleasure of leafing through lots of them, cooking from others and gawping at the luscious pictures in all of them, I thought I’d do a little roundup which I’ll add to as more come out. 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

a biggish update on London street food in July

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 – however good they were – and should fill my time with other, more cultural things. So there have been jaunts to the countryside, a trip up to Scotland,... Read More

How to tackle the street food queue

Kerb’s launch night party last Thursday I thought Petra Barran put on a spectacular party for the launch of her new project, Kerb last Thursday. I was expecting a bit of a meander up the boulevard (as you do) but arrived to a heaving celebration filled with the festival spirit. Music blasted out of what is normally the Spit & Roast van but was that night transformed by Justin (chicken fryer-cum-DJ) into a street food boom box. I ate a plate... Read More

Street food winners and losers

What a few days it was. If you weren’t there jostling for a space in the queue, you were probably on Twitter following all the action from somewhere else in London. Or perhaps it all passed you by. If that happened, I’ll give you a quick rundown – first of the British Street Food Awards and then of the Ribman’s hot wings contest on Wednesday. #FIFTEEN STREET I made it along to #fifteenstreet in Hackney on the sunny Saturday... Read More

London Streating: part 2 (east London street food eating)

This has accidentally become long and east London heavy because I did a big loop one weekend. Perhaps I’ll do a south London street food tour next time…and so on.. DALSTON STREET FEAST I never intended to end up eating street food on Friday night a fortnight ago but on walking straight out of Dalston Junction train station I had a flyer handed to me saying there was a new food and drink market on Fridays. Huh? This is news to me, I thought.... Read More

London Streating: Part 1 (that’s street food eating)

Lamb burger from The Laughing Stock I’ve done a lot of this recently – eating on the street, that is.

Part 2 to follow shortly including a few east London things like Street Feast’s new home in Dalston, Hackey Homemade and Broadway... Read More
