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

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

London Street Foodie on Tour: festival street food

The team from Sea Dog food at Glastonbury Festival Glasto what Glasto? Bog off with your oh-so-uhmazing stories of getting lost in a field with glitter on your face… we’re onto other festivals now. Well. Hear me out. Anyone who reads this blog will know that I have an aversion to music festival planners who don’t seem to pay any attention to the food line-up, assuming that everyone that is there for the fun and the music is also happy to pay... 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 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

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
