Has Kerb’s new Camden market got what it takes to serve North London street food?

Kerb in its new spot in Camden (Pic: Kerb) Camden’s a funny old place isn’t it? I both love it – I often wind up there for gigs of some description – and I can’t bear it – all those slow-moving throngs of tourists – but mostly I’m confused by it. I often wonder why its tat-filled tourist shops attract anyone at all. As an irregular incoming visitor, it is not difficult to spot Camden’s various hubs, from the street... Read More

He and his black bowler hat have popped up at many a Street Feast, KERB market, and others. Furthermore, not only is he a good cook but also passionate... Read More

New seller – Anna Maes Southern street food

Mac and cheese from Anna Maes Word up. I have a London street food seller to tell you about. Like many of London’s street food businesses, Anna Maes was started by two ex-office workers Anna Clark and Tony Soloman who wanted less desk and suit-type stuff and more home cooking. Together they did a fair bit of travelling and later turned an idea they had into a really fun, buzzing little stall (and now a gold van) that has featured at loads of... 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
