Kerb is coming to the South Bank for a spicy street food fest – and the line-up looks HOT

Kitty Drake

Kiss goodbye to that sad little packed lunch – street food collective Kerb is launching a fiery market by the river on Thursday.

Part of the Southbank’s Alchemy Festival celebrating South Asia, SE1 is set to house 27 traders cooking up street food dishes from across Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Pakistan and it’s basically a big fat spice-off.

This is the third year in a row Kerb has collaborated with the festival, and it’s bringing back old favourites such as Baba G’s lamb jalfrezi towers and Vicky’s chocolate chilli pudding doughnuts.

We’re particularly intrigued about weird and wonderful sounding mash-ups such as mac ‘n’ cheese stuffed naans from Annie Mae’s and Chaatit’s masala chip butties. There’s also live music and a rumour about free ‘karma pints’ being given away at the bar. Boozy lunch, anyone?

Kerb Does Alchemy will run from May 18-29 at Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX.
