There’s nothing like a Friday night takeaway to welcome in the weekend.
Though if you’re like us, you might’ve grown a little tired of your locals over lockdown, alternating between burgers and pizzas week in, week out.
Now it’s time to shake up your palette with a tantalising treat for the tastebuds.
We’re talking Latino fried guava-glazed wings, smoky rich jerk chicken with crispy skin, and lobster mac and cheese.
There’s also a ‘Hot Mess’ burger that boasts a 45-day aged beef patty stuffed in a bun with pepper jack cheese, jalapeños, and chipotle mayo.
We’re literally in heaven writing about it.
You can sink your teeth in one of these delicacies (or try all of them!) at Eastival, a festival of mouthwatering street food, killer music and quirky drinks.
The foodie extravaganza will hit Three Mills Island, in the heart of East London, on August 7 from midday to 11pm and promises 20 of the best street food traders in the city.
While you’ll also be able to knock back a gin, wine or craft beer in the summer sun, it is a family-friendly event so you can take the little ones along for karaoke and bouncing on trampolines.
Chatting ahead of the feast of the east, organisers said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming the finest independent musicians and collectives alongside the all-star food traders, with disco troupe Horse Meat Disco headlining our main stage.
“You can expect all the best sounds from disco, soul, hip-hop and more for hours of dancing with you friends in the east London sunshine.”
They added: “With world-class street food, craft beers, cocktails, live music and much more, this is the top destination to lap up those ultimate London summer vibrations.
“This will be the biggest street feast ever, and remember, it’s ALWAYS sunny at Eastival.”
