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.
The you take too many pictures of me face
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.
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.
Capish? Italian American
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
Look at all that Aberdeenshire Steak rearing to go
got it? – haha
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
Yuuum Pork !!
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
Your sugar base..Vanilla or Cinnamon and your toppings.. Marshmallows, Pecans or Sprinkles
Vanilla for Moe, Cinnamon for me
Look at all that chocolate – salivating
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!.**
