There is no doubt that some of the most exciting and innovative cuisine that is coming out of London is from the street food scene. There are food vendors who really are trying to push the boundaries of street food, offering some exquisite gourmet class food that would be good enough for any restaurant. What we will do is look at some of the places that are offering some Christmas themed treats for you and your exclusive escorts, but a word of warning, please take cash as many street vendors do not accept cards.
Kerb at Canary Wharf
A collection of street food vendors brought together by Kerb, offering some real festive delights including roast meats presented as Christmas sandwiches, canapés made from the traditional accompaniments such as sprouts and chestnuts as well as some outstanding Christmas themed drinks including punches and mulled wines.
The German Christmas Market, The Southbank Centre
Alongside the Thames, there are a huge variety of street foods on offer including traditional German Christmas sausage and also some killer mulled wines and amazing mulled cider which are sure to get you and your exclusive escort right into the Christmas spirit. Also worth taking in are the artisan bakers and craft stalls presents for some fabulous and unique Christmas gifts.
Street Vin, Hackney
This, whilst not quite a festive feast is a must see for anyone who appreciates the grape. It is a pop up wine merchants offering wine by the glass or bottle in a themed Christmas area. The vendors present are real wine aficionados and will be able to offer some unique and valuable advice about your purchases.
Very informal but not quite street food, this up market fast food joint offers a real must try Christmas snack that has foodies and festive types flocking. Their turkey burger is legendary, so much so that it sells out most of the December days that it is on offer.
Meat Liquor, Wellbeck Street
Again, more fast food then street food, but a brilliant experience none the same for you and your exclusive escort. Their offer is a hot dog, but no ordinary hot dog, this one comes wrapped in bacon with all the traditional Christmas accompaniments including stuffing and cranberry sauce. Located just around the corner from Bond street, there is plenty more to do to include this in anyone’s itinerary.
So there we have it, different ways to dine festively in London with your exclusive escort, and within each section a multitude of choices, meaning you should be fine to dine in London this Christmas.
