Kar-Shing Tong began as another hungry punter looking for a more fulfilling lunch of a Thursday. Then this finance whizz started helping us out at events in his spare time, carrying chairs and moving the KERB letters around, etc. Meanwhile, he discovered Instagram and a growing audience to look on in amazement at this insatiable appetite.
Since last year, Kar-Shing has combined his love of KERB lunches with his love of snapping them by being our resident Instagrammer at the Gherkin. (Beady-eyed lunchers will spot him arranging the day’s haul nearby into a classic IG shot).
As we come up to four years trading outside this iconic building every Thursday, he tells us about his love of the London street food game:
I started to get involved in the food world around 2012; I’d always eaten out a lot but never really engaged with the community. The discovery of Twitter gave me the median to do so and through that, I met a lot of people I now consider to be friends; some are my best.
