Last night our Executive Chef Alan and I (Menu Designer) ventured out of our suburbia comfort zone and headed north for the launch party for KERB

For those of you who have had your head in the sand for the last year, street food has become cool, and the infamous on Kings Cross Boulevard was recently re-launched into KERB.

With the intention of eating as much as we could I think in hindsight we did pretty badly, quality- excellent, quantity- disappointing, only managing to attack 2 food vans.

A good portion of the evening was spent in queuing up for the Bhangra Burger with a lot of other trendy “urban foodies” with tweezled moustaches and lumberjack shirts, and had a very delicious lamb wrap, spicy enough to numb my mouth but with a lime/aubergine pickle which I found really addictive (which is worrying as I really dislike aubergine) but totally worth the wait.

After retreating away from the spiced haven we went in search of something else. The queue for the steamed pork bun was endless, the guys selling ribs were sold out and were packing up, so we decided to divide and conquer. I went to Healthy Yummies, not such a good name but amazing scallops with celeriac puree, bacon and sea herbs, it was so good that I didn’t have the will power not to eat it before taking a photo so this one is from their website.

By this point we were really full and the queues were heaving and we were running out of legal tender so rather than running the risk of dancing for money we retreated back to familiar territory where moustaches are only grown for Movember and the only check you see is on tweed.
