Take to the streets, because we’ve found the best burgers, tastiest tacos and freshest eggs in London, all available curbside. Could we have found your new favourite food truck?
1. Mother Clucker
Come and ‘get clucked’ at Mother Clucker, the converted US Army ambulance serving fried chicken so finger lickin’ good it would make the Colonel himself jealous. This chicken is tea brined, buttermilk soaked and twice battered, before being fried and smothered in sauce. The truck is currently parked in the Truman Brewery and you can track the daily chicken run via Twitter.
2. Bleeker Street Burger
Bleeker Street Burger has moved up in the world since their humble food truck took the streets of London by storm. They now have three mouthwatering locations around the city where you can sample a selection of classic burgers, including a summer pop-up truck on the Southbank until the 24th September. They even offer ‘angry fries’ covered with a combo of hot sauce and blue cheese sauce… We can’t say we’re too angry at the sound of those, though.
3. The Bell & Brisket
This modern day salt beef bar promises to ‘prove to everyone that a good salt beef bagel is so much better than a burger’. Well, you might not need that much convincing after you take a look at these bad boys. The Bell & Brisket even offers you a topping option of blowtorched cheddar so really, you can’t go wrong here. They’re currently located at Pop Brixton and you can keep up to date on Twitter.
The Mexican street food chain Wahaca happens to have a lovely little truck on the Southbank, returning the street food concept back to the actual streets. Wahaca’s Mexican Street Kitchen offers you a selection of burritos, tacos and salads to satisfy your Mexican cravings on the go.
Holy guacamole! Luardos offer us Londoners even more Mexican madness with their travelling taco truck. They’ve got two vans travelling round the capital and a stall at KERB Camden Market so you’ve got loads of opportunities to track them down. You can even follow their movements on Twitter.
6. Street Kitchen
Street Kitchen is the perfect solution for time-poor London foodies, boasting ‘restaurant quality food’ in convenient takeaway boxes. They even offer runny poached eggs to go. Possibly the most middle-class street food ever? Keep up to date here.
Proving street food in London isn’t just about greasy burger vans, Rainbo food takes you on a virtual trip to Japan with their rainbow hued boxes of Japanese delicacies. Follow them on Twitter or drop in on their permanent location in the Stables Market area of Camden Market for a gyoza (or eight).
