SLIDER DECIDER – London’s Best Bun Fight 10/09/2016

Last Saturday (10 Sept ’16) we attended Slider Decider at Broadgate Circle, London, and cor we had an amazing day! Despite the rain, the 16 chefs in attendance cooked for the crowds, powered through and did a brilliant job.

We too put the ‘work’ in and sampled 14 out of the 16 sliders on offer. If you want to know what we thought, who the winners were, who we voted for and where you can see more of these chefs then keep on reading!

KERB ‘The Favourites’ Part 1- Camden, London

KERB Camden – Street Food – £ varies – mostly under £10

Last week I was lucky enough to get invited to the preview night of the new KERB food market at Camden Lock by A Geordie Lost In London. This food market has been here for a while but it’s been taken over and re-vamped by the KERB guys who already run street food markets at Kings Cross, the Gherkin and Canary Wharf.

Camden is the new flagship of the KERB brand as the first market which will be open 7 days a week, and has a huge 35 traders as well as a bar which specialises in Negronis (turns out I don’t love Negronis but there are plenty of other options including craft beers). It’s a great site, the stalls surround an offshoot from the canal which houses a couple of sleepy canal boats, so you get a nice feeling of chilling out by the water while you chow down.

BBQ Lab/Thunderbird – The only wing you’ll ever need – London

BBQ Lab – Chipuffalo Wings – £ the more you order the less they cost so buy them all

I don’t think we could do this blog without writing about BBQ Lab. These guys have been a favourite of Stef and I for a while now and let me tell you for why…

Anyone who knows me knows that I like chicken. Scrap that I bloody LOVE chicken. One of my proudest moments as an Auntie so far is when I saw my baby niece using a chicken bone as a teething ring. My mother tells me I did the same thing as a baby. Must be genetic, what can I say?

Now since I have been chowing down on chicken since before I could walk,and since my favourite part of the chicken is the wing, I think I’m pretty well qualified to tell you about a good wing when I find one. Trust me, I have eaten a LOT of wings.

Orange Buffalo Chicken – Brick Lane, London

Oof! Now I’d been waiting white a while to go to Orange Buffalo and I’d heard very good things but I had often found myself in Brick Lane at a non foody time, or I’d just stuffed myself at the stalls down the Lane itself.

HOWEVER, this Sunday a group of buds and I were there. We sat on a bench in the communal eating piece and the time was now. My friend got a portion of the buffalo wings and they smelt super tasty and zingy, so how could I refuse the opportunity?
