There was a time when you only mentioned King’s Cross when you had a train to catch, but now King’s Cross is looking pretty good. Better than that, it’s becoming a foodie destination: Caravan is packed, then there’s Shrimpy’s overlooking the canal, and the latest arrival: Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store.
One of the original culinary attractions of King’s Cross, though, was KERB, a high-end street food market from Tuesdays to Fridays, the brainchild of food entrepreneur Petra Barran (we wrote about one of the delicious KERB food trucks, Rainbo, with their Japanese gyozo here a while back). Now KERB is launching something new – KERB Saturdays – the first being this weekend. We love this sound of this super-charged farmer’s market, where the street food community joins with local producers for an all round food extravaganza. We’re going to head there for Bloody Marys from Vestal Vodka’s bar on the canal, then brace ourselves for a Bad Boy beef rib from brilliant BBQ maverick Gianluca Ivaldi (or ‘Pitmaster G’ to you and me). And of course we won’t be able to resist our favourite gyozos from Rainbo. Plus we’ll also be stocking up on some great, seasonal, local produce to for a weekend of home cooking. Yum!
