Hiding around the corner from their usual home in Granary Square, a stone’s throw away from King’s Cross Station the 5th Birthday celebration of KERB food market was turning up on a Friday night. They took this opportunity to encourage collaborations between traders, which resulted in some pretty amazing dishes. I only tried three because as hard as i try, I love bread and get full way to quickly.
White Men Can’t Jerk x Mother Clucker – 4/5
The Jerk Chicken Strips (modeled by Sam and his dirty trainers) were prefect, crispy without the skin falling off, which is a must. It came with three types of sauce and an option for a fourth which was the really spicy one, we both chickened out (pun intended). These were delicious, just spicy enough for this Jamaican food lover without being too threatening for people that don’t like to be kicked in he face with heat.
Bleecker x Bao – 3/5
There were so many choices between the two stands that were neighbors for the birthday celebration that it was difficult to choose. I went for the Chicken Bao Burger, which was essentially just a small burger. It was nice and spicy, the blue cheese dressing was deliciously salty and the balance was perfect. However, I would have loved a milk bun instead of a burger bun, but I’m partial to milk buns over everything.
Vicky’s x Blu Top – 5/5
As someone who has lactose intolerance this was my nightmare, however, as someone who loves ice cream and doughnuts this was my highlight. A toasted, ice cream filled doughnut topped with chocolate crumbly stuff and a pretzel. Possibly the best dessert I’ve ever had in my entire life, this was a hit with the whole crew. The balance of sweet, salty, warm and cold was an absolute match made in heaven.
