LONDON EVENING STANDARD - LONDON FOOD MONTH
Lucky to be invited to share Angela Hartnett's kitchen at London Food Month, initially for 2x days, we stayed for the entire 2.5 weeks.
Angela championed up and coming Street Food Traders to share her tent, and amazing experience to be a part of!
TIME OUT LONDON
Well, this was pretty F-ing amazing! Alongside established Thai restaurants in London town, the only proper Street Food offering... KraPow LDN, only after a few months trading.
THE LIFE AND STYLES OF KLF
KRAPOW X EATFIRST
I must say, having never been to Thailand I don't really know though, this was some of the most authentic Thai food I had ever experienced in my life. No coconut in sight, apart from coconut water to drink, and a whole load of flavour. I often see too many curry dishes with coconut being passed off as Thai food but THIS, not a coconut in sight and a whole load of citrus and spice. If this is what Thai food is genuinely like I may have to rethink my statement of "there is more to life than Thailand"
I was also lucky enough to speak to one of the founders of Kra Pow, Richard Oakes. And his enthusiasm and love for Thai food came across so wonderfully that I realised that these dishes really must be genuine! No overly Westernised spin on them, just a real love for Thai food and bringing it to the London masses.
WE... EAT FIRST
The early stages of a massively exciting collaboration with the guys at Eat First!
Launching next month you'll now be able to go on a culinary journey through Thailand's secret jungle passes, lively markets and moonwashed parties - all without leaving your desk or home.
NICELY TUCKED-AWAY WEEKEND FOOD MARKETS
Give the crowds the elbow and hit one of these new/under-the-radar street spots instead…
The guys at London Food Guide got Now Unknown down for a taste...
"I went for their most popular dish Kra Pow. A mix of rice, pork, spices and a big egg on top, it's simple street food at its finest. But for what looks like the most basic of dishes, this plate was a powerhouse of flavour. Smacking of chilli and garlic, it was sweet, hot, sticky, delicious soul food. Exactly the sort that would obliterate a hangover in a matter of minutes."
