Underbelly festival has returned to London again recently for 2 months of spectacular shows. I hadn't been before but eventually made it down there a couple of weeks ago to watch Shlomo's incredible Vocal Orchestra - an hour of aural entertainment from 7 very talented vocalist beatboxers.

Situated in an area of Jubilee Gardens, an inflatable purple cow hosts the majority of the performances, while surrounding benches, stools and mini marquees make up the Magners mushroom areas. 

It's such a great setting, that after watching the show, we decided to hang around and get some food from Underbelly's only food provider, The Laughing Stock. My initial reservations about having only one place to choose food from were quashed the minute I tried The Laughing Stock's food. At a very reasonable £6 average for the more than generous main dishes, the award winners at 2011's Street Food Awards proved that seriously delicious food can be cooked in a van, and doesn't have to cost a fortune.

My boyfriend had half a rack of ribs - a huge plate of succulent meat, smothered in a smokey BBQ sauce, that just fell off the bone. I chose the chicken liver pate with relish and toast. It was really good, the irony taste of wonderful liver pate with a sharp but sweet pickle and crunchy toast.

I'll be back at the Underbelly soon, even if I'm not going to see a show!
