Street food markets are nothing new to London, but, with a temperamental climate, it’s hardly the ideal city for dining alfresco. Street Feast’s creators have hit the money with their current Dalston venue. Technically it’s still outdoors enough to keep the word “Street” but it’s covered enough to keep business coming in any weather. The food stalls are very much “of the moment” trendy, popular dishes with an abundance of Americana type stalls opposed to diverse world foods. Mac&Cheese, lobster rolls, sliders, various pulled and BBQed meats, you get the gist. I find it hard to get excited about artisan Mac&Cheese, it seems far too much a dish for toddlers to justify spending £6 for. Lobster rolls however I make no complaints about, they’re worth every penny and are a most welcome food fad. Street Feast sets itself apart from many other markets with one vital addition: ALCOHOL. It’s this addition which is key to both bringing evening dinners to Street Feast, and keeping them there.
