Gourmet Street Food
The new trend of street food vendors in recent years has grown rapidly in London. Street food which was once considered as 'quick and easy grub' is now served up by local vendors as gourmet meals using fresh local produce. Talented home cooks are finally given the chance to demonstrate their flair without having to worry about the cost of overheads.

Mr Papoutsis who is considered to be a pioneer in street food began with his first venture Meatwagon; a mobile burger van that traded remarkable food which was then stolen from him. As a result, he briefly took up residence in New Cross opening Meateasy. Soon after he set up Meat Liquor in collaboration with Scott Collins; a popular West End grill-and-booze bar. This was followed by MeatMarket; a burger and hot dog joint overlooking Covent Garden's Jubilee Market.

But what's with the continued fuss over simple food served in cardboard boxes? Although it's not just any food, one could say that its success lies in its variety. These humble mobile eateries serve wide ranging meals from good ol' pork pies and custard tarts to inventive Korean cooking as well as burgers soaked in onions prepared in freshly baked buns.

Meanwhile new markets and food festivals continue to emerge accommodating the continuous surge of street food vendors. Spoils of cooks cram themselves behind stalls and in vans enthusiastically serving authentic hot food dishes to compulsive eaters who wait patiently in long queues. Food vendors even go as far as pitching up their stalls in alleyways and even under bridges.

Lucky Chip is another successful burger joint that managed to evolve out of a burger van. It is considered by many as being even better than Meat Liquor. It was set up by a former bar manager Ben Denner who began a frantic pursuit for the perfect burger and visited 70 bakeries in three months just to find the right buns.

Eat My Pies Stall is an example of authentic British street food. Their philosophy is to "make great British food available to the great British public." The stalls run both at White Cross Market and Broadway Market in Hackney. They serve meals such as pork pies and custard tarts. Their signature dishes include their smocked haddock scotch egg and chorizo pie.

It appears that foodies continue to get on buses and trains travelling miles in search of gourmet destination food stalls just to 'grab a quick bite to eat.' The London food scene has developed and continues to reinvent itself in new ways. One could even go as far as saying that the height of gastronomy has been achieved.

Le Marche Truffles available at the London's Borough Market

Le Marche Truffles available at the London's Borough Market | Gourmet Street Food | Scoop.it

The Borough Market is beneath the railway and the viaduct; between the river Thames and Borough High Street.
According to historians, the market existed since 1014 and has been in its current location since the 13th century. Borough is the oldest fruit and vegetable market in London.
About 130 traders operate in the market, ranging from cheese makers from France and Italy, to food artisans from Buenos Aires and the Grenadines, to a Galician purveyor of high-end food products. In addition to the traders, the market is home to several cafes, restaurants and wine bars.
The market employs food-quality experts to ensure the tastiest food and to qualify the products’ authenticity. Most of the vendors display posters of where their farms are located and how they tend to their products and livestock.
It’s best to visit the market hungry as vendors generously offer free samples. For navigational purposes, the market is divided into three main areas: Jubilee, Middle Market and Green Market.

Tartufaia Truffles (Jubilee Market) — Marike was on a mission to find truffle honey, a treat she and her husband have been addicted to since a friend introduced them to this delicacy. Tartufaia is the location for the incredible truffle honey and oils from Acqulagna in the Marche region of Italy.

The Best Food Markets in Italy

The Best Food Markets in Italy | Gourmet Street Food | Scoop.it

From Rome to Florence, one of the most exciting, and authentic, aspects of Italy’s cities have to be their food markets. Whether they’re selling produce, fish, meat, or (like usually!) all of the above, these food markets—usually featuring lively, yelling vendors and bustling, local shoppers—are a gem. (They’re also one of the best ways to get to know the region’s local food culture, and to figure out what’s in season!). And unless you’re with a local, you don’t always know about them! But we can help.

Here are five of our favorite markets in Rome, Florence, Venice, and more!

food from london's curator insight, January 14, 2013 9:33 AM

t's no secret there has been a recent surge in the London street-food scene. The number of vendors is growing. The standard of the food started high and is getting higher. There are more areas around London that are welcoming friendly food vans, trucks, and airstreams that serve everything from good ol' pork pies and scotch eggs to Korean comfort food. New markets are popping up around London with even more street-food vendors. It's easy to see that the capital is quickly becoming a street-food force to be reckoned with.

Kacy Florence's curator insight, October 1, 10:42 AM

In London, street food is very popular. But these are your typical hot dog stands, but instead gourmet vendors serve things from macaroons and crêpes, to firebread and korean fast food. Firebread is like a pizza made with sourdough covered in different topping. They make them in a clay oven built into their food van. Yum!
