Street food has become such a phenomenon in London, perhaps other major cities too. From my point of view, we’re not just talking about a tasty plate of food. It is an experience and a connection.
If you go to a restaurant for a meal, you love the food, you say to your waiter for the evening: “Compliments to the chef“. Whereas with street food, you can watch in anticipation as your food gets prepared, ask questions and chat with your favourite vendors. And my favourite part, watch them smile proudly as you take pictures of their food and tell them you want to blog about it.
Today, I pay tribute to some of my #StreetFood heroes.
“It is how a perfect burger should taste like!”
#1 Champion of London Burger Bash
#2 My favourite burger of all time – The Bleecker Black
#3 The premium, perfectly sized burger that consists of coarsely chopped prime fillet steak patty, secret burger sauce, soft yet perfectly intact burger bun, perfectly melted-on-patty cheese, no ketchup, mustard or those obligatory green stuff.
“Perfect flavour combo in two-mouth full”
#1 Winner of British Street Food Award – People’s Choice and Best Main Dish categories
#2 The fluffy warm steamed milk bun (“Bao”) and slow braised pork belly and chinese pickles combo
#3 Latest discovery – Taiwanese fried chicken with mildly sweet hot sauce – ADDICTIVE!
Can be found at most Kerb events and Netil Market on Saturdays. I’d suggest following them on Twitter for updates.
“A little slice of sweet indulgence that makes me smile”
#1 The uber delicious Whoopie pies that come in a variety of mouthwatering flavours
#2 The variety of goodies – the cupcakes, the sliced cakes, the brownies, the dosants
#3 The flavours – Nothing is too good to be true. My favourite whoopie pies come in flavours such as salted caramel, Ferrero Roche, Bounty, red velvet…Mmmmm… Check out Kooky Bakes’ website for more.
#4 Mr Kooky Bakes himself – always friendly and chatty with us food bloggers 🙂
