New London Street Food Market – a Q&A with founder Mike Norledge

Hartland Pies (available to buy at Primrose Hill Market, sister to the new Hampstead Food Market starting this weekend) Boom! Hampstead’s getting a new food market, folk. So what’s the deal? In short, the new London street food and produce market is run by the same people behind the successful Primrose Hill market, so there will be a mix of fresh produce and hot street food to take away. I’m particularly looking forward to breakfast muffins... 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. One of my earliest favourite London street food traders is Jez Felwick who, after quitting a life in TV, started up his own grass covered wagon, The Bowler, serving excellent meatballs with pasta, meatball subs and 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

London street food events this summer

The Bell & Brisket salt beef sandwich stall will be around town this summer A new adventure has begun. Last week was spent packing up the room I had been renting in west London and saying goodbye to my friend and former flatmate who is about to get married. My plan for the remainder of the summer is to try living in areas of London I haven’t yet been a resident, by renting off friends or via Air BnB for around a month at a time. So I’m... Read More

London Street Foodie on Tour: Sydney street food part 1

If on my travels so far the Singapore street food scene is the rather sanitised but exceptionally well fed king of it all, then the one in Sydney is like its excitable nephew, just learning the tricks of the trade. There are farmers markets at weekends here but those have been around for a while; the scene is tiny in terms of the number of people trading from vans and trucks and doing the kind of big meet-ups like Street Feast or Feast that Londoners... 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

Shh… secret pop-up dinner in Soho

What’s cooking? Do you want to go downstairs for dinner at Blacks? Wahey, it’s the Olympic Games. It’s a sporting frenzy. And if you’d asked me six months ago what I’d be doing on a Monday night in August, I’d probably have said writing about street food. Certainly not watching gymnastics or swimming races or beach volley ball. Or diving or hockey. But I’m glued. That said, I am also eating plenty of street... Read More

A little London street food van: revealed

A little while ago (too long – apologies, I have been been dancing in mud and eating bacon butties at a festival and have not had time to blog) I posted this asking people to identify the little London street food van under the blue cover. Well after a rush of tweets, a few comments and some more conversations back and forth, I can reveal that the friendly face belongs to Paul Kalburgi and it is from this teeny London van that he sells delicious... Read More

A little London street food van: but who is it?

Can you guess what this is? Hello streaters, I thought I’d play a little game today. After all, eating street food – especially London street food – is a fun sort of past time. I moved house a few months ago and one morning, just as I was peddling up the road to work, I noticed a little van with a friendly face poking over of the top. We had a chat, he told me he made food and sold it from the little van wherever he felt like it... Read More
