Call me obsessed I really couldn’t care but I must say that I don’t eat to live, I live to eat. An obsession borne out of the pure need for foods that are flavourful and not just to fill the stomach but ones that add excitement to ones tastebuds and make life worth living. My obsession has led to many opportunities including an invitation to the preview night at KERB Camden Market. With over 35 stalls selling a varied mix of street food with flavours from all over the world the best-known and most innovative traders offer all visitors a uniquely enjoyable foodie experience in an iconic canal-side location. As I approached the entrance I spotted Crispy Squid with the most gorgeous crispy squid which was slightly salted, nicely battered and soft on the inside crispy on the outside.
I made it to the stall and asked for a regular portion not large as there were so many dishes to try and I couldn’t fill up with my first dish now could I.
Having discovered that the dishes themselves were quite filling I did start asking for children’s size portions and also sampled my plus ones dishes as there was no way I would manage to try all the goodies from every single stall without falling into a food coma.
Mother Clucker was a stall I had wanted to try on seeing the press details and this was delicious the chicken was nice and juicy and the portion was good and the batter was well seasoned. I asked for less chips and just one piece of chicken to sample so portions are normally larger than that seen below.
The place was packed with other food fans who were all excited about trying the various samples available.
Their wraps were superb, full of flavour and stuffed with salad and chicken. I had a half and shared this as it was early and there was still food to be tried!
Oh My Dog
I didn’t get to try these as one alone would had been enough for a meal they were enormous.
The Soda Bar had the most fabulous, refreshing natural sodas that really did hit the spot especially after a spicy dish. the guy there was also very sweet and super helpful.
These guys did some gorgeous nachos with fresh salsa, guacamole and beans. The dish was lovely and this was not full size, its the smallest he could manage. I swear he must be part Greek as we are incapable of giving small portions lol.
There was no sign of Sponge Bob or Patrick here but the food looked and tasted divine. The batter was crispy and the salad was gorgeously healthy and tasty. One of my favourites. I did go naked (bun free) to save exploding and also removed a little of the batter as I was concerned about my calorie intake by this stage.
Check out the other dishes people ordered! How yummy do they look???
There were so many more food traders there than those shown here but one can only handle so much even with lots of help. I managed to take some snap of some other visitors dishes just to make sure you leave my site drooling!!!
Feeling hungry yet? This was a fabulous event for any foodie and is now open to the public so head on down guys and sample their delicious food. Have you been to KERB Camden Market yet?
