This Easter we threw our first InKERBator Weekender at the Southbank – celebrating the future of London street food and the businesses who’ve developed through the InkERBator Programme since it launched in 2017. 

It was a scorcher, with 25 of London’s hottest new traders sizzling out £5 dishes alongside a KERB Bar, KERB Workshops, food industry talks and judging panels over five days. Here are some highlights from the event:

Hanok giving Carcass London a run for his money – those flames 😍

…whilst Dan doused those luscious lamb rumps with butter-soaked rosemary branches. (Congrats on winning 3rd place).

KERB Bar’s Watermelon Wallbangers went down a treat 🍉

26 degrees 🔥

Guest sweet trader!  Dhan Waffle and her Taiwanese egg waffle bunny ice creams. (Good news: Irene is back for Jam on Rye).

And so are The Brit School! 👆
