London Street Foodie On Tour: Berlin street food part II (smoked fish in a market hall and spätzle at a street food party)

After last week’s taster of Berlin street food, here is the second and final instalment on what we discovered on a recent weekend trip there. MARKTHALLE NEUN Imagine an undercover hanger a little like the one at Borough Market. Then take out the crowds and minus a few of the trade stands. This is Kreuzberg’s Markthalle Neun. For many years it stood empty (it was built in 1891, was blackened out during the Second World War and more recently... Read More

The pulled pork, St Louis ribs and “burnt and mash” were all scrumptious and I hear Jamie and the gang have... Read More

Pitt Cue Co goes permanent

One of my favourite street food outlets from this summer was Pitt Cue Co, a silver airstream trailer based on the Southbank which was responsible for shifting some of the best pulled pork, beef brisket and BBQ ribs in London. If you got there early enough, you could get stuck into pork sitting happily on top of crunchy coleslaw, fennel-scented pickles and excellent charred sourdough bread – all packaged up in a cardboard box.
