No longer confined to a “less than 5% meat” hog dog on a Friday night. London has become a vibrant home for passionate street food vendors and pop-up venues serving the best of global cuisine at affordable prices.
Look out for news and reviews on the best restaurants, markets and vendors.

www.kerbfoodcom – Tue – Fri 11h00-14h30 @ Kings Boulevard nr Kings Cross
London is host to some of the best bars and bartenders in the world. Bartending (or mixology) is a fine art. Where a top chef will mix and match food, a top bartender has to do the same job with drink… often in a shorter timeframe.
Look out for news and reviews on events, the drinks industry, bars and spirits.

Many thanks for your email. I will be migrating my blog (and potentially changing the name) so I will consider it after the move.
Any suggested blog names appreciated…
I like the current blog name, concise and to the point
Thanks Bill, maybe I’ll change it to just “wilkes888”.
Looks like this blog could have been quite interesting but sadly, the sheer incessant frequency of pointless mail outs has done for me. Boozedude, without the “potentially pithy commentary” you keep promising all context is lost, and emails with lone pictures are both somewhat pointless and rather annoying. Rectify this and maybe i’ll get back involved but otherwise, i’m sorry to say i’m out! Good luck with the blog…
No worries – thank for the feedback. I’m still trying to find my feet as I’ve only been doing this for 2 months (as of today).
My intention was to try posting anything that catches my eye and then update with commentary afterwards, however I haven’t got the balance right.
If anyone knows a way to get auto-posts generated BUT KEEPING THEM IN DRAFT please let me know, then I could update the notes BEFORE sending them out.
Will let you know if (or when) I can get everything working more smoothly.
Thanks for the gracious response.
We all make mistakes starting out on something, but what’s good is that you recognise the issue too and can take (constructive) criticism. I expect you’ll go far with that kind of approach!
Albeit, once you’ve figured out how to keep posts in draft…

Hi there! I am the photographer who photographed four horsemen and the oesphogaus, thanks for blogging the mercedes drive thru experience and for documenting my images 🙂 what did you think of the experience?
Hey Rebecca, it was a great experience. However all the photos on my blog albums were taken by me!
Hello! I write on behalf of my employer (a 24/7 U.S. news network). We are very interested in including your image of the Kerbisher and Malt Fish & Chips in a food-focused segment. Can you give us permission to use the photo?
