International street food options fill a Shoreditch car park with great food and a fun crowd
A Shoreditch car park is transfored into a food-focused party for this weekly night market which features a revolving cast of traders. Dishes from all over the world are served from stalls and trucks; regular options include Venezuelan beef arepas (maize flour flatbreads), vegan hand-made pasta, Brazilian chorizo wraps, Belgina waffles and the ubiquitous (but undeniably delicious) pulled pork in a soft brioche bun.
Organiser Jessica Tucker (who's a City lawyer by day) knows that visitors are likely to get thirsty what with all that eating, so there's everything from Orchard Pig cider to bottles of champagne on the bar. Events are often themed, with free cocktails for all those in fancy dress – check the Urban Food Fest website to see what's coming up. Entry is free. The food, of course, is not.
