On Saturday 18 July, down tools in the kitchen and head to Brunch – the brainchild of renowned street-food market guru KERB, and fashion, beauty and culture vultures Emerald Street. 

Browsing the 18 KERB traders is thirsty work, so start with one of your two complimentary drinks – take an Italian turn with an Aperol Spritz and later you can wash it all down with a glass of Cordon Negro sparkling wine from Freixenet. Here are just a few of our favourites from the massive Brunch line up…

Feeling chilly?

Ice Kitchen is taking the brunch theme very seriously with its artisan lollies including bacon flavour, plus a host of other surprising concoctions; and don’t miss the ice-cream sandwiches with toppings from Blu Top Ice Cream.

Traditional brunch

Le Swine will be serving up thick-cut bacon butties (sigh); Noble Espresso is on ‘waking-you-up-with-a-bang’ duty with its single-origin espresso; and What the Dickens! has a selection of free-range, rare-breed meat and sustainable fish – kedgeree anyone?

Thinking outside the (brunch) box

Kimchinary has Korean-inspired tacos and burritos with sides of sesame coleslaw; Hawaiian Pokē turns the traditional smoked salmon brunch on its head with eggs, avocado and black rice; Crabbieshack is on top of the seafood brunch with crab and lobster rolls; while The Beefsteaks will soak up the night before with grass-fed, native breed, fry-aged British beef cooked over charcoal and all-important side of chips.

Don’t miss The Egg Drop!
And because we all like to show off our egg-cracking skills (or not in this case) there’s the Egg Drop competition. Simply let go of an uncooked egg, from the cherry picker crane (as you do) and if it remains unbroken you get a prize – and your name will be entered into a draw to win a night’s stay for two at the Hoxton Hotel, in Shoreditch. Simply bring a box to cushion the blow (or make it there).

It’s KERB’S only Saturday at King’s Cross, so don’t hang about!
