1st November – KERB’s Halloween Hellraiser. If you’re too old for trick or treating, head for King’s Cross where the KERB team are hosting a night of freaky food, bone-chilling beer, creepy cocktails and macabre music. Their regular traders are putting on ghoulish specials like Vampire Slayer and Bloody Mess pizzas from the Well Kneaded Wagon, black steamed buns with blood sauce from BAO, creepy crawly tacos from Ambriento and lots more.
1-3rd November – Real Street Food Festival. The Real Food Fest team are celebrating the last street food festival of the year in style with over 30 traders, live music, and three separate bars selling craft beer, wine and cocktails. Look out for riverside regulars like The Frenchie, Bleeker St Burger, Jamon Jamon, Fundi Pizza, and our new favourite, Donostia Social Club.
7-9th November – Night Tales. Running Thursday to Saturday every week until Christmas, Night Tales will bring great food, drink and live music to Dalston’s Abbot Street car park. Run by the team behind Background Bars and Dalston Roof Park, the canopy-covered site will house a mezzanine Mezcal bar, a Negroni station, and log fires to keep everyone cosy. Expect Southern-style BBQ from Smokey Tails, burgers from Patty & Bun, steamed buns from BAO, and lots more.
8th November – Hawker House. The team behind Street Feast are launching Hawker House, a warm indoor haven for street food and booze lovers, which will run every Friday and Saturday for six weeks. There will be fantastic food from Breddos Tacos, BOB’s Lobster, Yum Bun, Spit & Roast and Rainbo, as well as a Rola Wala naan bar and ribs straight from Smokestak’s smoker. On the booze front, Street Vin will be selling restaurant quality wines at street level prices, the Whisky Bar will offer over 50 different whiskies, and the Hot Bar will be knocking out hot buttered rum, hot wine and cognac-spiked hot chocolate.
16th November – Wine Car Boot. If you’re stocking up on wine for the festive season, head for the Union Car Park (near London Bridge) where some of London’s best independent wine shops will be sampling and selling their favourite wines. Tickets are a tenner and they include your first five tastes, a six bottle wine carrier and a tasting glass which is yours to keep. It’s a great way to meet some lovely local wine sellers and taste your way out of the supermarket.
