Nocturnal street food is getting a mouthwatering makeover in London with the gradual emergence of night markets. The first ones to lead the way were last year’s Long Table in Dalston and Red Market in Old Street. As springtime has (supposedly) kicked in, night markets are popping up again. Last weekend, StockMKT in Bermondsey made its first reappearance, and from this Friday 4 May there is another new outdoor pop-up: Street Feast. Set in Sclater Street Car Park, just off Brick Lane, Street Feast will be catering to nocturnal cravings every Friday for 12 weeks, 5pm-midnight. Expect tasty hot dogs from Big Apple Hot Dogs, kimchi sliders from Kimchi Kult, fingerlicking ribs from The Ribman and jerk veggie bean cake from Mama’s Jerk Station. An outdoor bar will serve cocktails and draught beer from the Camden Town Brewery. And for those who don’t like eating their grub with plastic cutlery, there’s a makeshift restaurant. Dubbed the Car Wash Dining Room (since it really is inside a former car wash), street grazers get the proper restaurant treatment, featuring waiters, plates and ‘real’ cutlery. Booking is advisable though as there are only two tables, seating ten people each. Reservations can be made in slots between 6-9pm or 9pm-midnight.
