London Street Foodie On Tour: Malaysian street food in Edinburgh

“How are you?” “I’m fine.” That response doesn’t really mean anything, does it? It can be a quick way out of having to go into detail about how everyone is doing your head in at the moment or how things are going swimmingly; it can be a defense mechanism to cover up melancholy or anger. It can mean “I’m fine and dandy,” (as in “great!”) and it can also genuinely mean “I am just fine, thanks” – fine being, well, fine.... 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

Burgers at Berwick Street Market

The Original Heartbreaker Burger from Tongue n Cheeks, Berwick Street Market Some of the best things happen when you’re least expecting them to. Like last Thursday, when a cancelled lunch meeting threw up an accidental London street food opportunity. This one wasn’t anything new. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. And it certainly wasn’t planned. But it just happened to slot in rather nicely as a break between jobs, so really it had everything... Read More

London street food: Sea Dog at the Southbank Centre Market

Sea Dog Foods Sea Dog Foods When I was younger my family would go on very long drives all the way to north east Scotland to visit my ‘Scottish granny’ who lived in Banffshire, and my brother, sister and I would all sit in the backseat of the car mostly arguing or sleeping. My parents, always thinking up solutions on how to keep us quiet for the 11-odd hours that it took to get there, would often give us each a choice over which tape we wanted... Read More

British Street Food Awards 2015 – what we ate

Guess who these London street food traders are… It was a smasher of a weekend. The British street food traders came, they cooked, they conquered. Meanwhile people like me went, ate, were part of the winning team in Lisa Markwell’s ‘Have I Got Foods For You?’ quiz (yes, this actually happened), and then waddled home again. Not bad going for a grey Sunday. I could tell you exactly what happened, but most posts like that go something like... 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

Exclusive: new London street food kitchen from The Bowler

Jez Felwick and his van The Bowler OK here’s some really exciting news for you all.

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

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
