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 the bar's stocked with craft beer, cider, wine and even champagne. A cocktail stand offers a selection of fruity options, too. 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.
Urban Food Fest is open from noon until midnight.
