BEWARE THIS POST IS NOT FOR THE DIETERS

My Fridays just got a lot better after discovering the Carnival Del Kerb. I dragged along my partner in all things yummy, Moe. (Say hello Moe) and off we were to meet up with more friends and experience this street food fiesta.

Carnival del Kerb is South London’s finest fiesta bringing you the city’s best pop-ups, street food, cocktails and music, conveniently all under the same roof or rather space; the Paperworks.

People bopped about in their groups, laughing and joking to the music whilst the queues for food got significantly bigger.

Why so serious, Mimi?

Although there weren’t a huge number of food stands, there was a wide variety of cuisines on offer.  I can promise you won’t leave hungry or sober for that matter.

Soleshare’s – London’s first community-supported fishery – who served up fresh prosecco and oysters

We decided to get a different meal and shared it round, you can’t come here and have just one thing!

It’s unheard of.

We had the yummiest steak roll from Cast Iron – a wee van specialising in Scottish produce.

The ladies and I bonded a bit, over the fact I studied over there

Wahey! Scottyland

Another fave of mine was Dusty Knuckle, a Hackney-based bakery, where we enjoyed their delightfully doughy, warm and fluffy flatbreads with BBQ leg of lamb, harissa, yoghurt and salad.

I loved watching them make the flatbreads

They also sold readymade sourdough bread

The culinary high of the evening was BBQ Dreamz, a Filipino-inspired barbecue, who served up the most divine lumpia – handmade spring rolls filled with prawn, squid and ginger, served with a spicy banana ketchup.

 We went for the Crispy Baboy, slow braised bbq pork belly, jasmine rice, salad and their special coriander sauce

This salad was so refreshing, a perfect compliment to the pork belly

This was honestly, the best thing i have eaten in a long time!

We finished our mains with ‘you doughnut’ – ‘balls of hot fluffy, sauce drenched magic – made in front of you’

It’s pretty simple, you watch as they make the mini doughnuts and you choose your topping

DSC_0054

Your sugar base..Vanilla or Cinnamon and your toppings.. Marshmallows, Pecans or Sprinkles

DSC_0060

Vanilla for Moe, Cinnamon for me

DSC_0061

Look at all that chocolate – salivating

DSC_0062

a dash of pecans

and there you have it

 Perfect end to a lovely night!

 I completely recommend it here, I know you’re going to love it as much as we did!

**Just remember to bring cash and take a jumper / cardigan for when the evening gets chillier!.**
