Discovering London’s Street Food Markets
Recently we discovered London’s street food markets, London is well known for its overpriced housing and luxury restaurants however the street food markets are buzzing full of people wanting quality food for only a small fee, most street foods are family owned and offer something you wouldn’t find anywhere else, with different cuisines from Chinese, Vietnamese to Indian and Levantine, London really is the cultural capital of Europe, especially when it comes to food.
We’ve tried and tasted all the Street Food Markets on this list but remember your taste buds might be different to ours however if you enjoy food, you will definitely enjoy our list.
Due to the nature of the street foods markets and vendors, they are usually pop-ups and relocated at short notice, however, we will provide you with all the information possible about each vendor, so you can try the delicious food for yourself.
