Kerb Street Food Market St Katharine Docks Friday Vendors
We moved six months ago to SE1 so often walk over London Bridge to St Katharine Docks. This stunning setting is the new location for Kerb, the street food market organisers. On Friday, you will find a bunch of seasoned street food vendors. Homeboy and I shared three dishes at the market. First was a delicious Taiwanese lunchbox by Bian Dang with Crumbed Oyster Mushrooms coated in sweet potato flour and fried. This was accompanied by steamed short-grain rice, pickles, shiitake mushroom sauce and a marbled tea egg.

We also shared a delicious Korean BBQ banh mi with seitan and walnut pate. Seitan is a chewy protein-rich food made from wheat gluten. I’m not a fan of substitute meat products, but this won me over! I’ll certainly revisit the Eat Chay stall for another vegan banh mi.

Homeboy insisted on buying sweet treats, so we ended at the Vicky’s Donuts stall. We bought a super cute mini Homer, named after Homer Simpson, a biscotti creation and The Reese’s. These were sugary and yummy!

Other stalls included Elote who offer Mexican corn on the cob, quesadillas with mushrooms, chicken or braised lamb and fish tacos. The chickpea chips are great, I’ve tasted their food before at Maltby Street Market.
Feast on Amalfi Coast-inspired burgers at Baggio Burger. Fill up on Filipino BBQ food at BBQ Dreams. Try Thai at Greed Khao. Much on a melted cheese toasty at Meltsmiths. Pick up a pizza at Wandercrust. There are more stalls which cater for all tastes whether you’re a vegan, veggie, fish fan or meat eater.
