Has the latest round of superhero films stirred something up inside you? Have you discovered a latent desire to fight crime and beat up giant monsters? Well, we can’t promise just that – the monsters you’ll face here are more like enormous burgers and intimidating desserts. What are we on about? The Urban Food Fest is only putting on a Superheroes Special this Saturday (May 24). The poppin’ Shoreditch street food market’s themed event is going all out – hungry visitors will get the chance to munch on delicacies like Martian Manhunter Chinese crepes, Iron Man Peruvian ox cheek skewers, and Catwoman chocolate fudge and Oreo brownies. There’ll also be boozy treats like X-Men cider and Incredible Hulk elderflower cocktails (they’re his favourites, we hear).
There’ll also, of course, be people prancing around in superhero outfits all over the shop – so dust off that old Batman costume and get yourself down there this Saturday. The city needs you. Flo Wales Bonner
Euro Car Parks, 162-175 Shoreditch High St, E1 6HU. Sat May 24, 5pm-midnight. Free.
