KERB eat.st

 

If you’re on here then you maybe don’t know that eat.st is no longer – but KERB is on fire!

www.kerbfood.com for where to get the flavour.

The end of eat.st – the beginning of the next steps for its founders…

2 Oct

Friends of eat.st – this is to let you know that as of Thursday October 4th eat.st will be no more. We – the three founders – have decided to go our separate ways and will be setting up exciting new entities – carrying all of our great eat.st experience with us to the next level.

Thank you for helping to make eat.st the great fun and success that it has been and have a look below at Petra, Gareth and Giles’ new ventures and how you can continue to be part of the mission to Drive British Street Food Forward.

Ice Cream Festival at KX this w/e!

31 Aug

Put those two words together with some pastel-hued cows and place on Granary Square, King’s Cross and…MAGIC! And it’s open to all – no entry fee, just coins for the cones…

Come and learn about king’s Cross’ intimate history with ICE – yes people, this was once a mecca for the frozen stuff and this Ice Cream Festival is the latest reimagining of its importance to the area. To celebrate these frosty roots, visitors can learn how to milk a cow, try a load of different ice creams, discover more about the history of ice cream and how to make it.

Then there’s the food offerings – and eat.st has it licked…

As well as the brilliant eat.st favourite Sorbitium Ices who will be churning out their incredible flavour combinations in ice cream, sorbet and sherbet forms, there will be some great food to temper the ice cream excess.

Bleecker St. Burger, Horn OK Please, Streetza and Van Dough will all be on hand to take you away from the creamy pastel-mania for a moment.

And definitely check out our friend from the North, Ginger’s Comfort Emporium is bringing her own style of brilliance down from Manchester – a rarity and a pleasure.

The Ice Cream Festival – Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September, 11am – 6pm, Granary Square, N1C

More eat.st at King’s Cross for the Olympics

25 Jul

As much loved as our Monday-Friday lunchtime market at KX is, some people just don’t have the time to get there in their lunch breaks. I often get messages from people asking, ‘Do you think I’ll be able to make it from Vauxhall/Bermondsey/Tottenham Court Road, queue for lunch, eat it and make it back in an hour?’. I always say, go for it – but slightly worry about the digestion process after….

So, help is on its way – for all of the KX daytime non-participators, as well as the hungry people waiting to catch the Javelin to Stratford. From this Saturday, July 28th, and for the full 16 days of the Olympics, eat.st will migrate South to the foot of King’s Boulevard at Station Square, serving from 11am-8pm daily. Now that’s a window for all the hungry/greedy/adventurous and fun to jump through. Whether ‘working from home’, taking a long lunch or heading over after work, we aim to feed.

We’re starting off small – Buen Provecho, Sorbitium Ices and Elephant Juice over the first weekend, then rolling out between four and eight traders each day. As well as this perky little trio, we have on the rota:

Bleecker St. Burgers – new kid on the van scene, doing the straight-up burger/slider/fries thing


Buen Provecho – pork pibil? Ceviche especial? MMmmm
Daisy Green – fro-yo and quirkster toppings
Dosa Deli – stepping up to challenge Horn OK to their KX crown

Eat My Pies - and his lovely mum, Jackie, showing us how they and their Scotch eggs roll
Elephant Juice – daily appearance to quench the thirst/hangover of proper smoothies
Fleisch Mob – Austrian street food from all round adorable guy, Mark
Gurmetti Limited - custom-built van-ette doing the gurmetti thing. Propio bello

Horn OK – bhel puri and dosa heaven
Jamon Jamon – returning to the fold with paella pans on fire
Kimchi Cult – Cult classic and KX stalwart
Kooky Bakes – Ice cream Whoopie Pies, what else is there?
Molly Bakes - and did we also hear SHAKES?
Monty’s Deli – Another adorable Mark – this one doing the Reuben thing with some major TLC
Mother Flipper – yes, he does and they’re one tasty little package
rainbo – Choc Star allumni Shrimp & Ben bring their 1948 Ford pickup into town, with mad gyozas on board

Sorbitium Ices – Their menu is dizzying. These guys KNOW ingredients
Speckmobile – Butter me up, baby. Serving schnitzel that I dream of
Tava Wava – the Bedouin tent of spiced and fragrant wraps. Massive tawa. Also called Mark
The Ribman – for one day only – don’t miss the window for another Mark to bust out his ribs
Tongue ‘n Cheek – Heartbreaker, risk-taker. We love it.
URBAN-ICES – Triking in from Dalston, Carla will pull out lollies unlike any you’ve ever seen

VadaszDeli – the Latino/Hungarian thing works for us. Try it, it’s tops
You Doughnut – this pair roll some mean dough and then roll it in delicious glazes. Moreish

eat.st at Station Square, N1C – 28 July – 12 August, 11am-8pm, daily.

eat.st at the Exhibition Road Show for the Olympics!

17 Jul

Lots of news on where we’ll be during the Games – first up we bring news on a project we’ve been working on for some time…

The Exhibition Road Show is all about celebrating the shared space that has got Exhibition Road all svelte and suave. For nine days – 28 July – 5 August – the entire Road will be taken up with music, dancing, games, brass bands, drums, bars and….US! So, not only will people be able to quaff proper cocktails from our old friends The Soul Shakers, but they’ll be able to graze on an array of great food from eat.st traders and friends.

 

 

Each day there will be 20 food stalls and vans, carefully selected by yours truly, to sling it good and sling it tasty on this iconic street. They will rotate throughout the week so that, in fact, if you were really greedy/curious, you could come every day and still not get through them all. Read the role-call of deliciousness and weep!

No mud at this festival

12 Jul

This Saturday, seven of our traders and one special guest will be lined up and slinging hard for Eurostar’s ‘Traction’ in Granary Square, King’s Cross. For 3000 lucky ticket holders, not only do they get Gilles Peterson curating the hell out of that place, but they get our lot for their dinner…

N1C will be hopping.

Who’s up?

Kimchi Cult - Korean/Mexican tortas

Buen Provecho - real Mexican comida de la calle

Speck Mobile – Austrian heartiness

Horn OK Please – Indian bhel puri and dosas

The Bowler – gourmet meatballs

French & Grace – Brixton wrap-attack

Well Kneaded – SW London Firebread

+ the wonderful Crepes Laviec (find them at Netil Market, usually) and for the coffee heads, Weanie Beans and Full Stop coffee.

And the rest of the programme looks like this:

In the collaborative spirit of the London 2012 Festival, Traction will pull together European acts on one stage in Granary Square, Kings Cross. London’s newest public space. Curator Gilles Peterson has drawn inspiration from across the continent, choosing performers such as firm French favourite Sébastien Tellier, spoken word artist Ghostpoet from the UK, Dutch jazz-funk specialist Benny Sings and Eurostar Records’ very own London trio Plugs, among others, to create a series of unique cross-cultural collaborations.

COME HUNGRY – for the party and the food!

Traction – Saturday 14th July, 4pm-11pm
