Where to Find the Best Street Food in London.


Good food isn’t difficult to find in London. The city is full of amazing eateries, specialising in cuisine from around the world, as well as traditional British fare. You can dine at the top of tall buildings, on sunny terraces overlooking the River Thames or in high-style in Michelin-starred restaurants.

Another option if you’re looking for something delicious to eat is to seek out some street food. Food vans and market stalls are great sources of high-quality food made by people who are really passionate about the meals they serve. The prices are usually reasonable, and vendors can be found all over London. You can choose from a wide range of unique dishes, from sweet to savoury and a lot of street food meets special dietary requirements such as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan. What’s more? There are usually several options to choose from in each location – meaning you’re sure to find something that will tickle your tastebuds.
