KERB’s Ice Cream Adventure - Saturday 16th August!

Our most lick-able event yet - 12 brilliant ice creamists slinging from carts and bikes, vans and tuk-tuks + 8 KERB traders selling street food to bring you back from the cool, creamy edge.

Meet Indie Ices who are driving their tuk-tuk all the way from Leeds carrying the world’s hottest ice cream – this is their award winning mango kulfi with coconut, lime and Moruga chilli with lime zest & chilli sprinkled on top. Also not to be missed are the cardamom waffles with ice cream on top.

Experience the incredible flavour combinations of North London ice-creamists, Ruby Violet with rhubarb, Heath honey, basil & lemon.

Have a sundae on a Saturday at Sorbitium Ices: Sundae #1 : baked banana & peanut brittle ice cream, salt caramel ice cream, hot fudge sauce, creme Chantilly, Sundae #2 : Rose geranium ice cream, fresh peach ice cream, raspberry granita

Design your own doughnut sundae with You Doughnut (hot, fresh ‘nuts + cool ice cream? Mmm-HMmm!)

Get squiffy at the Drunken Dairy with their boozy ice cream

Lickalix come with their photo booth – jump in after buying a homemade lolly and take the results home with you.

Possibly the most beautiful ice cream van out there, Moto Yogo and Stan their milk float will be churning out their Mexican chocolate fro-yo + deconstructed gooseberry crumble and Eton Mess flavours. Look for the aqua wheeled beauty!

The British Street Food Awards at KERB Saturdays - this Saturday!

All that matter about this Saturday is that there will be London’s biggest spread of game-changing street food all on one place for the London heats of the British Street Food Awards. This means that not only do you get the usual KERB Saturdays good times - but you get one-off menus all served up to win the customer’s vote.

This is a competition, y’all and the winner gets to take London to the finals. So eat plentifully, acquire an educated opinion on each of the traders and then vote for the top one on the BSFA app

(Then go and slump in a deck chair with one of Manhattans Project’s marvellous cocktails…).

See you on Saturday - 11am-6pm
