When it comes to street food, burgers, pizza and pulled pork get all the press and cult followings; but what about falafel? The debate on where it originated may carry on, but falafel has spread across the world, filling the gap for hearty, healthy, fast-food. Here are five of the best places to get your falafel fix in London.
Run by Sam and Eamon, who grew up on the streets of Jerusalem eating falafel, ChikP is a market stall that serves up fresh Middle Eastern falafel using an old family recipe. Wrapped in flat bread or simply as a salad box, the falafel comes with the option of red cabbage, gherkins, salad, and pickled turnips coloured with beetroot juice. ChikP doesn’t have a permanent location but they can be found at various markets including Shepherd’s Bush Market and St Katherine’s Dock.
