Bun Kabab

Serving traditional Pakistani street food, Bun Kabab offers, well, Bun Kabab, packed with different flavours and textures. Normally found on roadside stalls in Pakistan, founder Numra Siddiqui brings a taste of Karachi to London with her pop up. We’d recommend the slow cooked beef bun kabab with an omelette and side of hash browns. All meat is HMC certified.

Blu Top Ice Cream

A small van serving huge ice-cream sandwiches. We opted for the coconut rasmalai ice cream sandwiched between two cardamon cookies and topped with a salted caramel sauce.

Chaatit

Chaatit’s flavoursome sandwiches are bound to bring back memories of the famous sandwiches of Mumbai for anyone who has tried one there. Add a side of masala chips to your order and chilli sauce on top if you can handle the spice. All food served at the stall is vegetarian.

Crumble Shack

Apple and cinnamon crumble topped with chocolate and served with vanilla custard is the ultimate comfort food. Crumble Shack offer a range of flavours and toppings as well as gluten free options.

TEALA

Creating freshly brewed hot and iced cold tea based drinks, TEALA offers a refreshing pick me up. If you are lucky enough to get some sun in London this weekend we would recommend the Jasberry : fresh strawberries infused with cold brewed Jasmine Green Tea.

Curry On

What is more fitting than a portion of curry and chips to celebrate the relationship between the UK and the Indian subcontinent? Curry On serve a range of halal chicken curries with hand-cut, triple-cooked chips shaken up in a garlic and coriander mix.
