I had already told you in a previous post that one of the things I really like in London is strolling along the Southbank at the weekend. During summer, it is buzzing and there are so many activities and events going on! I therefore wanted to share with you the places I usually check out while there as well as an cool event I came across with during my last visit 🙂
I like starting by the OXO Tower and Gabriel Wharf looking at what they have on at the moment for fashion, interior design etc. When I want to chill out, I usually sit in Bernie Spain garden grass or on one of the benches facing the Thames (when there is one free ;)) where you have a stunning view over Saint Paul’s Cathedral and Victoria’s embankment. I continue my walk up to the Southbank Centre book market, which is hidden under Waterloo Bridge and has a wide range of second hand books. I then stop by the Undercroft skate park (which I discovered while writing this article is considered the birthplace of British skateboard!) to check the skaters and BMX riders trialling some figures and wander back home via the Southbank Centre and its market.
When I went there back in July, KERB was organising an event over the weekend with a great selection of street food traders. Here are the food stalls that caught my attention: Bill or Beak which are doing Vietnamese style burgers, Kimchinary and their korean inspired burritos, Yu Kyu if you want to try Japanese tonkatsu as well as The Crabbie Shack and their soft-shell crab burgers. On the sweet side, I spotted Moto Yogo ‘the yummiest organic frozen yogourt in the spooniverse’ (that says it all!) with what looked like super yummy toppings as well as Ice Kitchen and their ice lollies made using only natural ingredients. As I went there in the middle of the afternoon, I only tried a mojito ice lolly from Ice Kitchen. It was really refreshing and tasty, perfect for the lovely weather! I was quite tempted by the hibiscus and peach flavour but my addiction to mojito won over 🙂 I ended up stalking them on the internet and found out that you can buy their lollies in COOK (in case you ever wanted your everyday dose of yumminess :)). I am looking forward to attending another KERB street food event to try some more of these and others! By the way, if you are interested, they will be back at the Southbank on the weekend of the 5th of September.
Have you ever tried some of these stalls? What is your favourite street food place in London (super interested in getting new yummy recommendations!)? I hope you enjoyed discovering more about what the Southbank has to offer 🙂
Have a nice day!
