On Saturday eve, the boy and I popped up to Kings Cross to celebrate Kerb’s 5th Birthday shindig.
I last visited Kerb when they launched in Camden last summer, I gobbled so much wonderful food and loved every second. (I meaaan, when am I ever unhappy when surrounded by unlimited food and cocktails?)
The lovely folks from Kerb invited us to celebrate with them, and of course we said hell yaaas.
We strolled through Kings Cross (which FYI has so many hidden gems!) A cheeky outfit snap along the way…
Just about catching the last of the light (at 5:15PM) I’m not quite ready for dark evenings just yet >:(
We arrived and made a bee line for the bar…
This was some kinda gin, peach and lemon combo – SO good, and gone in seconds!
We then started our ’round’. Whenever Matt and I visit a market, we have to walk round each stall and have a ganders and get a healthy dose of food envy before making any decisions…
But in all honesty, I knew what my decision would be before we even arrived. I have heard talk of these tofish tacos on the grapevine for a while now.
As part of the celebrations, dreamy street food vendors joined forces to create KERBlaborations. Club Mexicana and Dosa Deli teamed up to create a Keralan tofish taco. Bhaji battered tofish, pink pickled onions, coriander and lime raita, burnt habanero and mango hot sauce. OH so good. If you haven’t tasted tofish before, ya gotta try it. The vegan dream.
But the tofish wasn’t the star of the show for me… Introducing the ice cream doughnut toastie. I know, a doughnut toastie. Is this real life?
This is the lovechild of Vicky’s Doughnuts and Blu Top ice cream. Burnt butter ice cream in a doughnut, toasted, drenched in salted caramel glaze, dusted with homemade Oreo biscuit and topped with a pretzel. These are what dreams are made of, I’m sure of it.
AND THEN, perhaps our favorite part of the evening – Dat Brass.
An eight piece hip hop brass band. They were FREAKIN’ amazing.
Have a listen to them here if you fancy it. If I ever get married, I will have these chaps play at my wedding!
All in all, a corker of a night!
Happy birthday KERB ?
