Kick-start your summer of feasting with our round-up of the hottest (and healthiest) street food that London has to offer.

Polu Poke

alt Bursting with punch and crunch, poke (pronounced po-KEH) is Hawaii’s answer to sushi. And we’re completely obsessed. Loaded with yellowfish tuna, scottish salmon and a whole range of zingy pickles and slaws, these superfood bowls tick all the right boxes. Looking for a plant-based option? You’re in luck. The guys at Polu Poke serve up a cracking butternut squash poke too.

Kerb markets across London

Wholefood Heaven

alt Husband and wife team David and Charlotte are on a mission to prove that van food doesn’t have to mean greasy burgers and soggy chips. Operating from the back of a vintage Citroen H, the duo serve up vegetarian buddha bowls inspired by their travels across the globe. Go for their signature massaman curry, homemade kimchi pickle and seasonal greens. Utter whole food heaven.

Find them at:
Whitecross Street Market, London

SpiceBox

alt Spicebox promises “curry as you’ve never had it before” – and they deliver. Drawing from ancient Ayurvedic wisdom, they pack their curries with superfood spices and plant-based goodness. Oh, and a healthy dose of chilli too. For the ultimate vegan curry, go for the Jackfruit Jalfrezi and pile on those pickles. You can thank us later.

Find them at:
Broadway Market, Kerb West India Quay, Kerb Gherkin

Lemlem Kitchen

alt Eaten on its own, injera – the ubiquitous spongy flatbread of Eritrean cuisine – is fairly plain. But laden it with heady spiced lamb, cardamom-braised beef and zingy fish, and you have something incredible. Dubbed an “Afro-taco”, this Eritrean-inspired street food hit also happens to be gluten-free.

Find them at:
Netil Market, London Fields
