kerb

This weekend, passing through the Southbank Centre on our way to Waterloo, we unexpectedly found ourselves in a KERB street food market:


KERB runs street food sites across London. The main pitch is at Granary Square, King's Cross, but they also roll up at the Gherkin (very appropriate!) and Spitalfields for regular lunch dates.

I've never felt comfortable eating standing up, or even forgoing plates and cutlery, but after exploring the market this weekend, I see I must overcome my inhibitions. KERB has so many amazing traders offering such a remarkable range--from savory to sweet, familiar to exotic--and with names like Fleisch Mob, Mother Flipper, and Yum Bun, it's hard to resist!

On my virgin visit, I stuck with something I have no qualms eating on the move--an Earl Grey Ice Lolly from Ice Kitchen. Sadly the photo doesn't do justice to its smooth and creamy scrumptious-ness,


but luckily I have the recipe now, so I'll have a go at home, where hopefully I can get a better picture (without all the jostling elbows!).

The next big KERB event will be An Ice Cream Adventure at King's Cross on 16 August, featuring 12 artisan ice cream purveyors. The regular street food vendors will be there too, and I'm planning to try it all--sans a seat!

  2. Please try each of the 12 ice cream stalls. I expect a full report.

    p.s. I saw a friend today who uses your Norfolk recommendations and says that a cafe on your list is her favourite place on the world.
