What to do on a Friday evening? My friend suggested this quirky little food festival just tucked away behind Dalston Junction overground. Ok, I wasn’t expecting the whole place to be filled with vegetarian food stalls but I thought there’s got to be a couple of organic veggie/vegan options, right? Wrong. Whilst undeniably a great place to have a drink and soak up the atmosphere, unless you’re happy to be surrounded by smells of fried squid balls and barbecue wings then this is not the place for you.
Did I have to sit there quietly starving whilst watching my friends munch on meat? Thankfully not as I found one stall that had some veggie options which were right up my street. As you can see from the picture, I chose a pizza option. Your eyes are not mistaken, that is infact PURPLE pizza. Beetroot-infused dough with goats cheese and caramelised red onion to be precise, alongside a mozzarella and basil pizza. DELICIOUS! Thank you Born & Raised British Pizza!
So Dalston Yard Street Feast. Great if you’re a meat eater. A slightly overwhelming attack on the senses if you’re vegetarian but worth a visit if only for the pizza and cute little cupcake stall!Street Feast
