Adventures in Piccadilly: new London street food market – with Michael Fassbender*

Stalls at Piccadilly Market, St James’s Church The thing about street food, for me, is that I always know that finding and then eating it takes me on some sort of an adventure. I’ve talked about this before, of course (see post on travelling around the world without leaving London here), but part of the reason for starting this blog was to document some of these escapades, as a way of seeing what might happen when I set off to somewhere random... 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.

Street food vans: London Evening Standard

Hello everyone. If you got to p37 of today’s Evening Standard newspaper, please ignore this as you’ll have seen my piece in the London Life section on ten of the best of London’s street food vans. Here is a taster if not. … It started out as a practice run — a few people dishing up great cheap food from vans at a festival or two. But when the occasional punter then became a queue, and later a heaving, hungry crowd, bookings... Read More

The Long Table: a street food feat

Lucky Chip burger patties on the grill For my first entry, I’d like to applaud Nuno Mendes and the Bootstrap Company for pulling off their latest project, The Long Table, a pop-up outdoor street food market in Dalston that had gigantic queues stretching onto the street from the word go. I went in the first week (tonight’s was the final one before Christmas) to share some of the best dishes with a few friends. Our favourites were Lucky Chip... Read More
