London Street Foodie On Tour: the best festival food highlights at Wilderness Festival

Lucy Francis and friend eating a Le Bun burger at Wilderness Festival (Photo: Lucy Francis) It’s a tricky thing blending fine dining with street food, art, dance, comedy, partying, philosophy, crafts, parents, kids games, and more. But I’d say that at Wilderness they got it bang on last weekend. I went for the first time this year, thinking it was just going to be a load of people having banquets in tents, and getting up for the occasional boogie... 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

Street feasting time

Already we have waltzed into the month of November, the gloves have been brought out of the cupboard and we are beginning to think about Christmas – one girl I met recently told me she had done all of her Christmas shopping… I am not one to begin celebrating early – for me it starts on December 1 – but I do think that as the evenings become chillier and all we really want to do is huddle together and drink hot cider, it is... Read More

27-29 April: Films + street food = yum

Picture courtesy of squidandpear.com I haven’t been before but I’ve heard news of a certain film festival happening in April. This year the Henley International Film Festival has chosen to celebrate food in film so not only are they saying there will be “3 days of the best food cinema” but also “the best of international street food on the banks of the river Thames.” This is good news for LSF. I won’t go into... Read More

New seller: Santana Grill

West or north Londoners will like this: you don’t always have to go eastwards to get to the good stuff. So here’s a new one by Victoria station called Santana Grill which some of you might get a chance to visit during your lunch hour if you’re nearby. I first met Rudy on a freezing night in December at the StockMKT in Bermondsey (which I understand is returning to Bermondsey Square in April – yay) and while his service style... Read More
