Tongue 'N Cheek

Tongue 'N Cheek Tongue 'N Cheek Tongue 'N Cheek Tongue 'N Cheek Tongue 'N Cheek Tongue 'N Cheek
Breaking hearts all over London with That burger.
KERB, 2013

Why we love them

The wild-haired Italian who ditched his entire career and sturdy lifestyle in Mantova for the free-wheeling uncertainty of street slinging in London. What a soldier! Cristiano and his 'under-rated cuts of meat' stall, Tongue 'n Cheek is a quiet revolutionist. You see him there at the grill, intensely closhing and prepping his famous Heartbreaker burger - it's hard to know what to make of him and his less-penetrable approach to customer service - but inside, there is a storm of ideology raging. Cristiano came to Britain to become part of a food network. He wanted to bring all his ideas for true edible and social sustainability and share it with the rest of us. His principles and dedication to this are unwavering. We are lucky to have him.

In their own words

We aim to use underrated meat or fish cuts taking in great consideration sustainably, diversity, food culture education and affordability. Being a street fooder takes me closer to a wide range of people that are willing to experiment and expand their food culture knowledge.

Why the kerb life

Bohemian version: One night I felt a little drunk in a bar in Italy, the last thing I remember it’s that I was talking with a cheeky woman named Petra, next day I found my self in London setting up a stall and working in a market and I loved it.

Possibly true one. I felt in love with the street food renaissance and more in general with the renewed UK food culture movement and we wanted to be part of it, bringing to London from Italy our passion and dedication for a better, clean and fair food culture.

I cannot think of having a day at Kings Blvd without Good & Proper Tea besides that I truly like anything that comes out from Luardos van's hatch.
