Travel Supermarket's International Streetfood Challenge in Shoreditch


On Thursday 13th August Travel Supermarket is holding an International Street Food Challenge, in honour of food around the world.  Both entry and food is free, and there will be traders including Vinn Goute (Seychelles), Kothu Kothu (Sri Lanka) and Orange Buffalo (US), and it runs from 12 noon to 9pm

"Love food? Love holidays? You're not alone! Half of Brits say, when choosing a holiday, the food of the country, or city, is important, and a quarter admitted to booking a holiday purely because they wanted to try the destination's food.
With gastro tourism on the rise, TravelSupermarket is now helping people choose their next holiday destination by introducing the International Street Food Challenge. The free event will launch on August 13, 2015 in the heart of London's bustling street food scene - and will be the world's first travel (by taste) agent. 
Leading street food vendors from popular holiday destinations including France, Italy, Seychelles, Sri Lanka and America will go head-to-head in a battle to be crowned the winner at the inaugural awards. 
The vendors were all chosen to compete after showing the best in class street food from their country, with a number of the vendors even travelling from far and wide to compete - including French chefs Copper and Wheat from Copenhagen who are flying in their own brand of potatoes and duck fat to ensure their dishes are 100% authentic. 
Kothu Kothu - Sri Lanka
Copper & Wheat - France
La Tua pasta - Italy
Orange Buffalo - America
Vinn Groute - Seychelles"

When - Thursday August 13, 2015 from midday - 9pm

Where - The Back Building, 148 - 150 Curtain Road, Shoreditch EC2A 3AR

Claw's August Streetfood Residency at The Duke's Head in Highgate


Taking over the kitchen at The Duke's Head in Highgate this August is Claw - who, as the name suggests, specialise in crab, and crab meat.  Expect things like burgers (inc Kimchi and Avacado versions), plus ,ac & cheese, and vegetarian options.

"On discovering that the UK is exporting almost 80% of our crab to the rest of Europe, we decided that it was about time to bring the humble crab back to British plates. 
After lots of debating, we packed in our jobs and set out on our mission to reignite Britain's love affair with crab – and perhaps discover a few other locally-sourced delicacies along the way.
Since starting, we have had the same ambition: to cook food that is quality-focused, simple and seasonal - we hope you enjoy it!"

Monday - Sunday, 12 noon til 10pm

Where - The Duke's Head, 16 Highgate High St, London N6 5JG

The London Craft Beer Festival returns to Oval Space in Bethnal Breen, E2, from Thurs 13th - Sun 16th August 2015 (note that this is Oval Space in E2, not The Oval in South London).  You buy a ticket for a session (typically 2 per day) for £38.50 and this gives you access to the festival, lots of tasters from some of the 30 craft brewers there, and music from acts like Public Service Broadcasting.  Plus there's street food and more.  Beware - this will sell out...

An unrivalled celebration of great beers and breweries, for just £38.50 guests will have full access to tasters of a collection of the greatest craft beers from around the globe. A lively programme of DJ sets from some very special guests and an exciting street food offering make LCBF the most exciting beer festival this summer.
This year LCBF is welcoming a stellar line up of over 30 craft brewers from all over the world, including the USA, Europe and a range of the UK’s much loved and home-grown craft breweries.
With such global representation from the best of craft beer, the festival’s line up truly champions the spirit of flavour and discovery.

Looking to the rest of the UK, breweries including Magic Rock, Thornbridge, Burning Sky, Siren, Buxton Brewery and Wild Beer will be present to name just a few. From further afield, international breweries will be making a rare and exciting UK appearance at LCBF: Edge Brewing from Barcelona, Omnipollo from Stockholm and Lervig from Norway, while Founders Brewing Co joins from across the pond.
In association with pop-up beer and whiskey bar The Stevedores, The Pickle Factory opposite Oval Space will be opening up its doors and playing host to some of the newest faces making waves on the craft beer scene.
Running alongside the beers will be an amazing range of delicious food from some of London’s best known street-food vendors. LCBF’s famous smoked Onglet steak and chips will be back to soak up any excess boozing, along with pulled, smoked and roasted Ginger Pig meats from celebrated pop-up Pull & Punch at The Pickle Factory. Those in need of a light bite can indulge in charcuterie boards from The Borough Ham & Cheese Co or pick up a US-inspired street-food fix from Big Apple Hot Dogs. For the vegetarian beer lovers, options will be on offer from the organic Plump Café.
A celebration of beer and good times, LCBF’s is set apart from the rest by an eclectic music programming in association with Oval Space Music.
