Three Street Foods Missing from London.

Recently we have been talking about how international the street food scene is in London. To a certain extent, it’s all true.We who live and eat off pavements in the capital of the United Kingdom have some of the widest choice in the world, and we certainly make the most of it. However, here are three foodstuffs that are conspicuously missing from our favourite lunchtime haunts – foods that would certainly brighten up even the dullest of stEATING occasions…

It’s a shock that these little Russian crepes have not broken out of the bistros of Notting Hill or Kensington, if only for the name (“Blini darling?”). These sweet and savoury treats are commonly found by kiosks like Teremok in Moscow.

In fact, they’re conspicuously and baffingly absent from pretty much everywhere in London, and the city’s street food scene is all the worse for it.

Bolivia might not be what you think of when you think ‘street food in London’, but fried pork definitely will be. That’s why it’s absolutely bizarre that there aren’t at least three stands selling this greasy Bolivian meat dish in the capital.

Not really considered a main dish in its home country, these bits of fried pork have the potential to be an instant hit among an increasingly burger-dominated street food scene.

Yet, if you are in the mood for something a little sweeter then this Philippine dish should go down a storm (if you could find it). Deep fried banana coated in caramelised brown sugar, it is the perfect antidote to a particularly cold day when yet another cupcake just won’t do.
