If you’re passing through the King’s Cross area and fancy a bite to eat, don’t just head for your nearest McSnack joint.
For the same spend, you can feast like (kerbside) royalty on anything from burritos and crepes to unusual cuts of meat by Italian gourmet traders Tongue ‘n Cheek.
The street food collective has set up a micro-market with a rotating selection of 4 to 6 stalls between 10am and 4pm every Wednesday to Friday. On the menu have been festival faves like Anna Mae’s (and their ‘world famous’ mac and cheese) and Big Apple Hot Dogs aka BAHD.
The eat.st zone, the first of its kind in London, has captured the hearts and appetites of locals and flavour junkies from across the capital.
It’s a scenic lunch spot, bustling with the charm and conviviality of the traders, and some amazing sights and scents enticing you to keep on sampling.
Of course, we’re BAHD champions but aside from the most delicious dogs in town, I’m still singing about the hand-rolled, wood-fired spinach and ricotta pizza from Home Slice (top pic) that almost made me nibble my fingers off.
And last week, the babes and I shared a Yum Bun sandwich – slow-roasted belly pork in hoisin sauce nestled in a steamed bun described as ‘pillow soft’.
Pure taste explosion. Next time, I’m keeping it all to myself!
eat.st is at King’s Boulevard, N1C (between King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations) from 10am-4pm, every Wed-Fri. Visit www.eat.st
