Kerb, National Theatre

Visiting the Southbank this summer?Then look out for Kerb National Theatre, the latest exciting opening from the street food kings. Peter Gray reports.

Kerb have announced that they will be bringing their impressive line up of moreish treats to the Southbank this summer with a new pitch outside the National Theatre.

The street food purveyors can already be found at several prominent sites within the capital and the National Theatre gig is sure to be a hit given the area’s impressive footfall and the current restrictions on indoor dining.

“From Thursday 15th April, KERB are bringing the flavour back to the National Theatre” says the company’s website about the new residency. “With five KERB-picked food trucks firing up their grills, Gipsy Hill beers galore and a rotating line-up of music”.

milktree gelato

milktree gelato offer up a quite bewildering range of gelato flavours from the predictable (Salted Caramel, Pistachio) to the truly radical (Bread, Butter & Jam, Banana Sesame Crunch). Run by Venezuelan born, United States raised Karen, the company has made quite a name for itself in the two short years since the business began.

STAKEhaus are the street food vendor to know if you fancy simple, no nonsense steak at a reasonable price. STAKEhaus’s signature steak and chips has become the stuff of legend with the melt in the mouth meat perfectly complemented by the gorgeous rosemary fries.

Baba Dhaba

Baba Dhaba’s line up of kebab burgers, Biryani boxes and vegan Chaat have been winning rave reviews ever since the Pakistani street food specialists launched in 2017. The company, which is run by three lifelong friends whose parents are also lifelong ‘besties’, is a popular attraction at Kerb events.
