What do you get when you put a banker and a lawyer together? An East London street food festival, of course. It may sound unlikely, but the burgeoning Urban Food Fest is indisputable evidence. Despite the fact that it was only launched a few months ago, this collection of eclectic street food vendors has already supplied food for corporate events for Apple, among others, and this April you can find it in its natural habitat at the Euro Car Parks on Shoreditch High Street.
You can expect to be surrounded by gourmet food trucks serving some of the best globally-influenced, artisanal street food in London, with dishes exclusive to the festival, and all washed down with cocktails and (of course) craft beers. Entry’s free and the trucks change weekly, so multiple visits are encouraged. Just try not to get lost in the crowd…
The best part is the cheap bar with a wide variety of classics including beer, cider, wine, mizers, jagerbombs, proseccos as well as quirky cocktails such as elderflower, fruit rum punch and creative bellinis.
This area is packed on a Saturday night, so the event gets a huge amount of passing footfall due to its location; as well as those that have come especially to the event.
The Urban Food Fest has been all over the press; in newspapers, magazines, journals, blogs and is being tweeted about by the main Street Food journalists. Get yourself down to Shoreditch and discover the best night time street food market in London.
