Top night in Shoreditch with the girls. Atmosphere was vibrant and buzzy and the food was so good! The Pimms jug was a great touch in the autumn sunshine. I like how the Urban Food Fest had thought of all the little things, like adding its Twitter page and Facebook, for people to tweet and post about the event. The website is also super cool. Foodwise: try the indian street food wraps and the Korean rice burger, really spicy and different. Drinkwise: either the cider or the Pimms. Will be coming in Beatles fancy dress this weekend!!

A revolving cast of dozens of food stalls and trucks serve a frankly intimidating variety of global cuisine at the Euro Car Parks in Shoreditch. Jerk chicken, wood-fired oven pizza, pad thai, halloumi souvlaki, sushi, schwarma, fried chicken, burritos – we could go on. And we will, quickly, to make special mention of the deep-fried frogs' legs at Geaux Cajun. Those things are amazing.
Visitors will also find plenty to drink, along with a 'V Corner' for vegans and their day-walker counterparts, vegetarians. Up-and-coming bands and entertainers round out the experience, while the family-run fest’s ever-evolving lineup ensures second and third visits are well worth the effort. Entry is free. The food, of course, is not.

Brilliant event. Amazing food, ice cold drinks and great crowd, all round good night out with my mates. The lives bands added a cool vibe. Best thing i ate had to be the frogs legs from Geaux Cajun. In second place was Galbi Bros Korean ramen burger. Never had it before and really liked it. The guys serving were cool too. To drink try the ale or the craft beers. Didn't have dessert as the portions were massive.
BEST STREET FOOD EVENT I'VE BEEN TO IN LONDON THIS YEAR AND REALLY DESERVES ITS BRITISH STREET FOOD AWARDS NOMINATION. I WOULD ADVISE ALL VISITORS TO TRY THE FOLLOWING: THE ORCHARD PIG CIDER AND ELDERFLOWER DRINK FROM THE YELLOW BAR. TO EAT: BISH BASH GERMAN CURRY WURST AND POMMES, RED PORTUGAL'S PASTEL DE NATA CAKE AND MEI MEI STREET CART'S JIAN BING CREPE (APPARENTLY A SPECIALITY CHINESE STREET FOOD!) THE EVENT IS UBER COOL AND SO MUCH FUN! :-)
10/10 event. Recommended Urban Food Fest to all my friends who went the following week and also had a brilliant time. The huge variety of food stands is amazing. I tried Peruvian skewers which were incredible, of course the famous frogs legs which tasted like chicken and for dessert I had a chocolate crepe which was one of the best Ive ever had! My friends had chorizo scotch eggs which they loved and the pizza from the cool monster van. They ate grilled fruits for dessert which they have never had before. The best part was the gorgeous bar girls and the elderflower cocktail with rum. The girls had cider which they loved and they had a great ale. The drinks were very cheap for Shoreditch. Thanks TO for listing this event! Im going back this week!
Great event with a fantastic atmosphere! Really great variety of food and drink. I had the Wood Fired Oven Pizza it was amazing...the van was amazing too!! Great night with a group of friends - will definitely be going again to try more food!
There seems to be an amazing shift towards more healthy eating as people become aware of the importance of Nutrients. Here are some of the things which are becoming more popular: http://pinterest.com/bigsands/what-to-eat-how-to-choose-a-diet/ It would be great to see more of this at the next Urban Food Fest or Taste Festival.
Oh this place is absolutely buzzing, it was packed, you could see why as the food was so good also the sun was shining. A small group of us went and i decided to try the Caribbean stall. I think it was Golden Sunset, OMG!!! simple the best I've tasted, I had the Jerk chicken, rice and peas with salad and the amazing sauce. My hubby had the mutton curry, so tasty succulent and tender and my mum had the home made Jerk burger, very very tasty all round , Their food is a must the pizza was had by my brother and he loved it. Beer was cheap and bar staff did a good job. Check it out!!! We will defo be back.
Very small area for so many people, some stalls had run out of food by 7pm, and the bar was just a few guys selling drinks out of the back of a car with no idea about how to serve people. Shame because the food looked pretty good and the atmosphere was buzzy - there were just too many people for the small space. We went down the road to Yalla Yalla, sat straight down and were served delicious Lebanese street food - so all worked out in the end.
Always an impressive selection, the macarons are good especially the oreos and I tried grapefruit flavour. Seating area is fun. Cool crowd and the band Dollface were very good. Thanks for posting Time Out - love this event.
AMAZING FOOD, GREAT BANDS... I ROLLED OUT OF THERE! WAS SUCH A GREAT NIGHT WITH MY FRIENDS. BURGERS ARE THE BEST & THE CHEAP BEER!
Great place, the only problem is what to try next, a feast of taste and flavours.well worth the trip, just leave enough time.
