It’s like a Bao down on the London street food scene at the moment, with these little steamed wonders appearing to be having a moment in the spotlight. With so many Korean spots to visit, it sure can get a little overwhelming/bamboozling and no matter how much you say you’re going to visit all the places on your list, we all know it probably won’t happen. The Bao popup I visited recently however, is one of those places that deserves priority status on anyone’s restaurant list. Bam Boo, owned and ran by Kuleen and Jack, is a new Asian fusion street food company based in London. Starting off life touring on a street food stall, Bam Boo has just launched a residency at the O…

I pitta the fool who thinks that Hummus isn’t good enough for dinner. I cannot tell you hummus I crave a warm pitta and a big bowl of the thick, creamy, chickpea dip we all love, even for dinner – Oh Hummus is my fave thing to be tucking into right now. So I obviously had to try out Hummus Bros, a Mediterranean restaurant and the first in the UK to serve hummus as a base for main courses. Kim and I popped along one evening to satisfy those cravings before an event. The laid-back Levantine eatery, has a clean and contemporary feel, with monochrome interior and a little splash of colour here and there. Offering a completely relaxed dining experience, Hummus Bros feels a little like an…

I told you guys all about what my sister, Emma, planned for my birthday recently (read my post here). She did a stellar job, full of surprises and giggles along the way. Well, with a full day out, we obviously had to stop for a bite to eat. And she totally smashed that too. Opening my little stage 2 card, on the Saturday it didn’t give much away apart from the fact that she was treating me to lunch. And that’s when she took me to Bill’s. In my eyes, Bill’s is always a winner. Jumping the queue, as Emma had thought ahead and booked us a table, we settled into a cute little table for two – Emma taking the comfy sofa seat along…

The cutest market I’ve ever seen. For anyone who hasn’t been yet, Maltby Street Market, close to Bermondsey and London Bridge, is a small food market with a range of street food and artisan brands selling ready to eat food and produce, such as Bad Brownie, The Beef Steaks and The Cheese Truck. These are all cushioned alongside bars and quirky restaurants which can be found under the arches of the railway bridge, serving everything from Oysters to Spanish tapas. Bustling with Londoners and a few tourists, it’s not always as busy as Borough Market, which is lots bigger in comparison, and incidentally it’s not always quite as packed. But it’s still rather busy, especially when it’s sunny outside, as I found out recently. Making our…

Hummus is such a versatile ingredient yet most people just use it to dip their bread, carrot sticks and cucumber fingers in. It’s thick, slightly creamy texture and rich flavour is perfect with all manner of toppings that we don’t even think about – yes not just olive oil and a shake of spice. But as I found out recently, Hummus Lina, almost certainly has thought about this. Hummus Lina is a food stall in Camden Stables Market. Nestled amongst several others, including a falafel stall and an Oliver’s Fish and Chips, competition seems quite strong in the street food arena, however, with middle eastern influences cropping up more and more, and interest not appearing to be going anywhere (how can you say no to…
