Tequila, Chilli And Great Food At London's Street Feast

Whether you’re a Borough Market foodie with a taste for gourmet olives or a Leather Lane aficionado looking for a burrito, one thing everyone can agree on is that London is spoilt when it comes to great street food.

So it’s no wonder that someone dreamt up the idea of bringing the best individual stalls from around the capital together for a festival.

In a hidden square of trendy Dalston, Street Feast is underway for its second year and the variety of food and atmosphere on offer is genuinely impressive.

From street food staples like Giles Coren favourite The Ribman (seriously, all the hype you’ve heard about this man’s pork rolls is true…) to slightly off the map options like octopus curry, each stall has been selected first and foremost for the quality of their produce.

But also important to the curators is the attitude of the individual vendors: Street Feast is refreshing free of any grumpy face experiences, as live music (and thus far, plenty of sunshine) creates a party feel, particularly in the evenings.

Booze plays its part too. As well as a specially built gin store and a Bloody Mary Buffet, Street Feast presented us with our favourite new alcohol experience of 2013.

Alongside some truly fantastic Mexican food, Breddos Taccos’ offers a Jose Cuervo Chiliback shot – a hit of tequila that you follow with an equal measure of the juice they ferment their chillis in. Sounds horrific: tastes fantastic.

Street Feast is on now, Dalston Yard, every Friday and Saturday (Fri: 5pm-Midnight, Saturday: Noon-Midnight)until 14 September. Entry is free. @StreetFeastLDN
