Street Food in South Bank

May 25th, 2021 | by Tom Harrow-Smith

Your Street Food Guide to South Bank

South Bank is quickly becoming one of London's top street food havens, with new pop ups, well 'popping up', almost every week. To give you the lowdown on what culinary delights you can feast on whilst on the go, we've compiled this guide of all the best places to grab a bite. From burritos to burgers and noodles to kebabs. You'll struggle not to find something that's right up your street.

  • Southbank Centre Food Market

    Where else to start other than the one and only Southbank Centre food market itself? Serving a huge variety of world cuisines, such as Pad Thai from Pad Sen (pictured) or dill battered shrimp from Shrimpy. There's too many stalls to name them all, the joy is in discovering new food every time you go (which will be many).

    The Southbank Centre Food Market is strictly a weekend affair, open Friday to Sundays and bank holidays.

  • KERB at The National Theatre

    KERB are one of London's most popular street food vendors, previously having a variety of different independent stalls all over London, from London Bridge to West India Quay. Now this summer, KERB have popped up outside the National Theatre where they'll be setting up shop every Thursday to Sunday, bringing you big bold flavours in the process. In all there's five stalls; Taiwanese lunchboxes from Bian Dang, Hawaiian influenced Lords of Poke, mouth watering 5oz steaks from STAKEhaus, proper Pakistani street food from Baba Dhaba, and for something sweet, milktree serve up both traditional and vegan gelatos from their mini ice cream van. Yum.

  • Oh My Dog!

    Nestling under Hungerford Bridge, you will find Oh My Dog!, which specialise in some seriously special hot dogs, as you've probably guessed from the name. Their custom franks are hand-made using outdoor reared prime-cuts and natural casings, smoked over oak for that legendary perfect snap, with vegan and veggie options covered too. Served with demi-brioche buns which are freshly baked every day, these aren't your average frankfurters. With a craft beer bar too and a burger joint, there's seating available too on carved wooden benches and tables underneath  beautifully lit surroundings which transform the underside of the bridge into aesthetically pleasing surroundings.

  • Wahaca's Mexican Street Kitchen

    Love the taste of Wahaca's authentic Mexican food? Well if you don't have the time for a full sit down meal, then worry not, as you can still grab delicious on the go courtesy of their Mexican Street Kitchen, serving takeaway burritos and salads from their food truck parked on the riverside just below their South Bank restaurant.

  • SLICE by Pizza Pilgrims

    SLICE is Pizza Pilgrims answer to American styled 'pizza by the slice', something you can get on almost any street corner across the pond, but a notion relatively unfamiliar to us Brits. These 12 inch slices are 'NYC style' and made by their very own Naples native pizza chef for that extra slice of authenticity. For the brave, you can also get a metre long (yes 1 metre!) pizza - otherwise known as 'Pizza Al Metro'. You can also pick up a beer or alcoholic slushy from their stall located just in front of the Royal Festival Hall on the riverside to wash all that pizza goodness down.
