Street Feast London
Street Feast is one of the most popular markets for street food in London. There are four to choose from: Dinerama, Shoreditch, Model Market, Lewisham, Giant Robot, Canary Wharf and Hawker House, Canada Water.
All of these markets have something in common – they all host amazing traders serving up delicious food! We first visited the original Street Feast in Dalston before it was sadly converted to a car park. It was our first real experience of street food when we had started blogging and we absolutely loved it!
Dinerama Street Feast has now been going strong for over four years. Slightly hidden around a corner on Great Eastern Street, the two storied building hosts 9 food traders and 10 bars with plenty of choice for food and drink.
The Food Traders
All the food traders are situated on the ground floor with long benches in the middle to sit and enjoy your treats!
Best friends, Andy and Lachy only set up Tucka Burger in summer 2018 and there is a real buzz about their burgers. Apparently, they tried a different burger every weekend (great way to do market research!) until they decided to quit their day jobs and enter the burger market!
The menu is kept simple with two meat burgers and one veggie with specials popping up now and again. We devoured the Mark Tuckaberg with dry-aged beef, onion jam, smoked bacon, sriracha mayo, bbq sauce (£8 single, £11 double). This burger was pretty much faultless. The sweetness of the bbq and onion jam complimented the spicy sriracha mayo and the patties just melted in your mouth. It was a real winning combo!
Matt’s story started in the US in 2008 where he eat a LOT of fried chicken and BBQ. Roll on a few years and BBQ Labs was born where he won the award for the Best Buffalo Wings in London at WingFest. He then decided to focus on fried chicken and opened Thunderbird.
Thunderbird is a wing bar only at Dinerama (at other outlets they have big burgers) focusing on four different types of wings. We opted for the Chipuffalo Wings: Buffalo, Chipotle, Coriander, Pickled Celery, Truffled Blue Cheese Dip. These wings were spot on – tender juicy chicken perfectly fried with a crispy coating (10 for £9).
Expect wood fired pizzas from Fundi with a thin base and delicious toppings. We don’t hear too much about Fundi on Instagram which is a shame as their pizza is great! We had the Pepperoni: Spicy Neapolitan pepperoni Montana on plum tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil (£8.50). It had delicious flavours, a thin crispy crust and it was not too greasy.
Yum Bun offer hand-make steamed yum buns steamed yumplings. They have won various British Street food awards and now trade in 6 outlets across London! We tucked into the Pork Bun: Slowly roasted pork belly, cucumber, spring onion, hoi sin sauce and the Chicken Bun: Japanese style fried chicken, pickles, mayo, lettuce, chilli (2 for £8). These buns consistently hit the spot!
Two brothers serving up kebabs with light bread from India, the kofta of the ocakbasi’s and tabbouleh from their uncle. They grew up up on a Devon farm and source their meat from a handful of trusted butchers in London.
We opted for the Big and Juicy: lamb kofta, garlic yoghurt, BABEK smokey relish, pickled onions, charred pepper, shredded cabbage, tomato and added halloumi (£10). This was an absolute beast – such a filling kebab with great flavours and textures throughout.
There is also food from Up in my Grill, Chin Chin, White Men Can’t Jerk and Club Mexicana.
The whole of the upper floor is dedicated to different bars, as well as a couple downstairs. This includes Winerama, German Sex Dungeon, Gin Kitchen and Dick’s Magic Tiki Bar.
We enjoyed an Elderflower Spritz (St Germain, Elderflower and Prosecco) from the downstairs big bar (£8.5) which was light and refreshing. We also could not resist trying the Giant pina colada served in a pineapple (£15). They even gave us a cup of left over pina colada that wouldn’t fit in the pineapple!
Dinerama Street Feast is always buzzing and is a great place to go with friends and try out the different offerings. We thoroughly recommend Tucka Burger and Thunderbird to satisfy your cravings.
