June is an exciting time for foodies in the Capital. This month is London Food Month and The Evening Standard has launched its first annual Night Market, running from June 7-18 in Kensington.
Treat your taste buds and check out our top picks for the stalls not to miss out on.
A Brisket Bun from Smokestak
David Carter, the Michelin-starred chef behind Smokestak, is taking his renowned BBQ restaurant to the streets.
His stall has a selection of the most popular meals on his menu, and the slow roasted brisket bun is the cream of the crop.
First seasoned with salt and pepper, his slow roasted beef is left to cook for 12-16 hours before being placed in a barbecue toasted bun and topped off with pickled chillies for a little kick.
Pork Belly from Café Murano
The team at Café Murano is bringing a range of specialist dishes, including their salt cod fritters.
But the honey-glazed pork belly - served with peas, girolles and baby gem – is a particular highlight from the café’s menu.
Angela Hartnett, the brains behind the Murano brand, will also be joined by guest chefs Tom Kitchin, Gary Usher, Mitch Tonks, Tom Kerridge and Stephen Terry.
Jerusalem spiced chicken thighs from Laffa
Their Jerusalem-spiced chicken thighs are served with mashed garlic potatoes and pomegranate caramelised onions.
Duck Burger from the Duck Shed and Muffin Man Co.
Duck Shed and the Muffin Man Co. are joining forces for the Night Market to deliver a cracking burger for Londoners.
Filled with slow-roasted pulled duck, smoked pancetta, grilled Ogleshield cheese and English leaves in a brioche bun.
To accompany the pulled duck, the team is preparing an Offal Ragu, filled with duck meat and tomatoes.
Chaats from Cinnamon Bazaar
The six chaats feature a vegetable samosa, curried white peas and tamarind chutney, a papdi chaat with crisp wheat, yoghurt and chickpea vermicelli and a watermelon chaat with date chutney.
If chaats aren’t for you, then the team is serving Lahori chicken with root vegetables.
