Not so long ago, a Dalston ‘street feast’ would have been a Mangal kebab (yum) surreptitiously devoured on a night bus home. This all changed when the nomadic Street Feast took to the streets in 2012, turning vacant lots into temporary outdoor food markets. Now that summer’s arriving, Street Feast will once again be settling down in Dalston Yard to cook up tasty truck food every Friday and Saturday until autumn comes. Street Feast’s vans this year include Rainbo, Bleecker St Burger, Cheeky Italian, Busan BBQ, Smokestak – and more than 40 other vendors. Grab some napkins and roll up your sleeves, because although it’s hipper than the average late night kebab vendor, it doesn’t mean it’s any less messy. Alexandra Gerrity
