KERB Your Enfoodiasm
We love an event with a good pun in its name. KERB Your Enfoodiasm took place last Thursday behind King’s Cross station. Once the badlands of London, this area is slowly becoming a North London foodie haven – with a new Caravan next to Central St. Martin’s, the Cali-Mexican cuisine of Shrimpy’s just across the canal and food trucks lining Kings Boulevard every weekday lunchtime.KERB organise street food events and markets around London – their mission is to ‘make cities taste better’. They’ve certainly done that in King’s Cross. KERB Your Enfoodiasm was housed under the canopy outside Central St. Martin’s, just by the multicoloured fountains on Goods Way. A semi-circle of fairy lights and brightly-coloured trucks greeted us; the stall holders spare no expense on decoration to entice you in.
Like children in a sweet shop, we darted between food trucks, paralysed with indecision. Do you go for southern-style mac ‘n’ cheese or buttermilk fried chicken with apple slaw and hot sauce? We divided up, choosing a cone of spicy jhal muri, beautiful Parisian fig pastries and a juicy Kimchi burger. To drink? Pomegranate prosecco and mulled wine.Our only criticism was the music coming from Luardo’s converted DJ booth – it was so loud we had to shout to each other to be heard. And it was very cold – but hey, what do you expect from London in November?
KERB Your Enfoodiasm is a great place to grab a bite post-work or take visiting friends. You can guarantee a buzzing atmosphere, as well as truly mouth-watering food from across the world. Go now whilst KERB is still new. By summer, the crowds will have discovered it too.
