This Sunday, 20th July, Carnaby Street is going to be transformed for a free, one-day food festival. From 11am - 6pm the street will be packed with outdoor stalls run by local restaurants who'll be serving up street food versions of their best dishes. There'll be live music, free workshops, face painting and live cooking demos by Hardeep Singh Kohli throughout the day.

Over 40 of the top restaurants in the area will be out on the streets giving you the opportunity to sample their dishes from only £5 per dish. Restaurants that will be present on the day are Antidote, Camellia’s Tea House, Carnaby Burger Co., Cha Cha Moon, Choccywoccydoodah, Comptoir Libanais, Dehesa, FlatPlanet, Johnny Cupcakes & Crumbs and Doilies, Joho Soho by Cinnamon Soho, Kua ‘Aina, Leon, Liberty, Masala Zone, Moosh, Mozzino & Katia Kitchen, Pizza Pilgrims, Rosa’s Thai Café, SACRED Café, Shampers, Shoryu Carnaby, Speakeasy Espresso and Brew Bar, Retreat, Stax, The Detox Kitchen, The Diner, The Life Goddess, The Rum Kitchen Carnaby, Urban Tea Rooms, Whyte & Brown, Wright Brothers Soho and Zebrano.

We had a sneak peak preview of some of the establishments who will be involved on Sunday's extravaganza, and you're in for a real treat.

Oysters from Wright Brothers' very own oyster farm in Cornwall.

Dogs made from white chocolate at Choccywoccydoodah... 

Scrumptious pork gyoza at Shoryu.

Food and craft beer matched at Whyte and Brown - this particular combo was incredible, white and brown crab on bread with honey beer. 

A platter of Cha Cha Moon's guoites, spring rolls, parcels and wontons.

More deep fried delights at Cha Cha Moon, this was crispy chicken.

As well as being able to fill your tummies with all of these delights, the cooking demos should be really interesting and informative. Hardeep will be joined by chefs from some of the participating restaurants on the day. These joint demos will take place at the following times:

11am - Cinnamon Soho
12pm - The Detox Kitchen
1pm - TBC
2pm - Drinking Trend Talks
3pm - Pizza Pilgrims
4pm - The Life Goddess
5pm - Challenge Hardeep
5.30pm - The Rum Kitchen

And if you fancy setting Hardeep a bit of a challenge, then take an ingredient with you on the day, and bring it along to the demo kitchen by 5pm, when Hardeep will have to magic up a dish using only the ingredients brought along by the audience.

Sunday will be an excellent opportunity to sample all the delights of Carnaby Street, and I can't wait to have more of what we had the other night. There are so many great restaurants and food places in the area, it'll be wonderful to see them all out, along the street, on a (hopefully!) sunny day!

For more information check the Carnaby Street website where you can register for a free event guide, and be entered into a competition where you could win dinner cooked for you by Mr Hardeep Singh Kohli himself - that's if I don't win it!

Hope to see many of on Carnaby Street this Sunday!!

    1. I think it will be - the preview night was amazing anyway so really looking forward to Sunday. Shame you're not here for it (although I'm sure you're somewhere much nicer!)


  5. These kind of events is one of the things I miss most about London. Can't complain as I'm currently traveling, but it's still fun to hear about all these things I would've loved to go to!
