Can you believe monthly street food pop-up is turning one! It’s been a helluva ride for the guys behind this and a major success so tonight expect delicious street food from the likes of Baked In Brick who serve 24 hour marinated Chicken Tikka, cooked over charcoals with freshly baked flatbreads from a converted 1964 Mini Cooper. I’ll be making a beeline for Dim Sum Su who loves to develop new, exciting recipes that re-invent and re-imagine this delicious oriental snack food. Other food will include a modern twist on Fish & Chip, crazy noodles from Canoodle and Greek food from Street Souvlaki. There will also be an after party so get ready to eat and drink the night away.
