About Time: You Attended KERB’s Southern-Style Street Food FestivalBy Alicia Grimshaw
A taste-tastic explosion of hot sauce, fried goods and saucy lil numbers, KERB are raising the roof once again with their biggest hoedown in town, Noshville. Block out your diary (8th, 9th and 10th June) and head to Granary Square, King’s Cross for a celebration of Deep South food, drink and live music.
This year there’s some mad creations going down – we’re talking about cereal inspired tacos, s’mores/doughnut hybrids and fried chicken hot dogs. Count us in:
