Kerb’s Coming to the Southbank This Weekend

I’ve long been a big fan of the street food Kings that are KERB, but it did make me sad that South London was oft left out of these scrumptious happenings. Thankfully that’s about to change, because KERB is heading to the Southbank Centre for a whole weekend of deliciousness, and it starts right now.

John Salt, Islington

Islington restaurant John Salt caused quite a stir when it opened under the tenure of Chef Ben Spalding – who made people lick actual bricks for some reason.

Dishoom, Covent Garden

The good folk of Dishoom have attempted to bring a Bombay Café to Covent Garden, with varying success. The end result is a buzzing, lively restaurant which does not take reservations (obviously) and serves a wild selection of properly Indian dishes and pretending-to-be-Indian dishes from within a sepia-walled basement.
