Rainbo at Pork Life

image

Last weekend we joined the big meaty guns (Smokestack, Bleecker Burger, other carnivirous kings) at Pork Life and Ribstock in Dalston Yard. That car park has seen so much action, feasting and drinking… since the first days of Street Feast there we always feel at home and the vibe is always new and fresh but always consistently buzzing. Pork Life was no exception, and to celebrate we served probably our most traditional dumpling yet: back to basics with a super juicy pork and Chinese chive served with a new and weirdly more-ish maple, sesame and chilli dipping sauce.

It was a perfect weekend and we managed to adopt an inflatable pig so everyone is happy.

Out in the Wilderness

image Wow – doesn’t time fly? It seems like only yesterday we flew off to Wilderness, unpacked the van, sold a tonne of gyoza, packed back up, unpacked and packed some more, moved house and raced to Umbria. There, we slept and ate inordinate amounts and now we are back and ready for autumn on the streets of the capital, making a new home in foodie E17. Meanwhile here are some pics from the festival. We are always too busy to take many but these capture the spirit perfectly. In case you’re wondering, the one of Ben and The Bowlers in identical clothing depicts a purely circumstantial street-food-trader-identikit. I guess that’s what happens when you spend enough time together. And Dave Luardos gets massive props for his spandex, apron and crocs. image image image

Rainbo at House Festival

image A couple of weeks ago we rolled on through the gates of Marble House in Twickenham to celebrate summer in style with Soho House at House Festival. What a day… With Dizzee Rascal, Kelis, Paloma Faith and tons others on stage, and enough pizza, burgers, lobster, donuts and Grey Goose to feed a small army, abundance and all-out fun were top of the list from the moment the gates opened until well beyond sundown. It was our second time at the festival and we loved every minute. Even the raging midday griddling heat. Who says grown ups can’t have fun? We also recorded a little video with the House Seven team which should be up online shortly. For now enjoy the pics. Clearer, bluer skies we have never seen. image image image image image image image image image

We are hiring!

We are looking for a new member of the Rainbo family to help prep and run jobs in the van.

KERB Southbank #2

kerb-june-southbank

This week we are at our usual slot at Kings X on Wednesday and then griddling more gyoza on the Southbank for the second KERB extravaganza there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Get ready and come hungry… summer is here and it’s only right to stuff your face and stamp your feet.

Rainbo at Fairground

image

It’s been a busy few weeks for team Rainbo as the summer kicks off, led primarily by a 4 week residency at Fairground in Haggerston, where talks, food, music and workshops come together in a whirl of creativity, craft and consumption of great things. We have been serving up our new summer menu of cured kohlrabi, smashed cucumber and wakame and chicken and green tea gyoza and are having a ball on the very chilled second floor. Catch us there the next two weekends and come and learn something new while you do.

Battersea Power Station: in with the new

image

The week before last we had a pretty special street food night in London. At its most iconic pile of bricks, with the man Elton himself singing and loads of our favourite traders feeding thousands of hungry guests, we had a pretty sweet evening all round. The party was to celebrate the future restoration and development of Battersea Power Station, and getting so close to its awesome magnitude and age pretty much blew our minds.

No need for talking, here are the pics.
