Stuff Yourself to Bursting at Street Feast on Fridays
If you think food tastes far better when eaten out in the open air, you had better set aside a Friday between now and the end of June and take yourself along to Street Feast in the former builders' yard belonging to Travis Perkins in Kingsland Road. The food is served from 5pm and all through the evening until midnight.

The street traders are offering a wide range of taste bud stimulating dishes just to prove that we are as adventurous in our culinary choices as anywhere else in the world; a visit to Street Feast is almost the equivalent to around the world in 80 cuisines. You could find yourself filling up with Seychelles specialities courtesy of Vinn Goute, Jamaican Jerk food from Mama's Jerk Station, Big Apple Hotdogs
and wash everything down with a nice cup of Rosie Lea from Joe's Tea Co.

All the traders supply information to make you aware of the foods that are wheat, dairy and gluten free, as well as the ones that are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
In addition to the food stalls, there is also an indoor cocktail bar and an outdoor main bar serving craft beers, wine and cocktails. There is also a raised terrace dining area where tables can be reserved for Stripped Back by Ben Spalding, formerly of the Fat Duck and Roganic.
