Dalston Street Feast

I like to think of Street Feast as a meaty, ‘street-eats’ emporium located in a used container warehouse… but then again, if I described it that way I don’t think anybody would go. Street Feast is actually a night market whose home is Dalston Yard, every Friday and Saturday they assemble some of London’s best food traders, restaurants and bars for what I believe is the ultimate venue to eat, drink and be merry.

I thought after a day of high class at Chelsea Flower Show it would be best to mix it up and hop over to Dalston. Dalston holds a dear place in my mum’s heart as it’s one of the places she used to drive through to my old house over in East London, and for me it’s the venue of many a memorable (or not so…) night out. I’ve been to Street Feast, and its winter sister Hawker House, many times before; introducing my mum to one of my favourite places was a real pleasure.

I explained the process - we buy all the food and drink we could muster and have a ball. We went for Le Bourguignon Bun from Le Bun (– French American treats), the trio from Indian Street Food giants Rola Wala, tacos and pork belly croquettes from Breddos Tacos and buckets of ice cream from Sorbitium. Man oh man, my absolute favourites were the croquettes and Le Bun; sauce running down your arms, wiping your mouth with your sleeves (my mum used a serviette of course but I’m far more uncouth); real mouth watering, savour the flavour foods. I’ve already got my eyes on what I’ll be having next time and oh there will be a next time (Bleecker St Burgers, I’m coming for you).

If you’re in need of a brilliant night out with good friends and great food, cruise over to Dalston, you certainly won’t regret it.
