Gourmet Food on the Move

Caribbean Food Week

Caribbean Food Week

It is nearly time again to get together and celebrate all-things-Caribbean. The food markets will be blooming with flavour and spicy aroma for a week, whilst Food Truck from all around the UK gather in honour of the delicious food that Caribbean cuisine has to offer. If you are too, a love of the spiced-up jerk chickens, goat curries and of course a rum punch then this is your time to shine. Food markets across the UK will be hosting their own Caribbean Food Week events but if you can’t make it to the events you can at least visit one of the Food Truck that serves Caribbean food all year round.

One Love Kitchen

Indulge in the authentic tastes and spices of the Caribbean with this Food Truck. One Love Kitchen has been roaming around the streets of London serving quality food to hungry spice-lovers. Their massive BBQ grill can fit week's worth of jerk chicken. All food is home-made using traditional techniques and recipes. You cannot go more authentic than this. Try their Curried Goat served with peas, salad and bed of rice, or if you are after the smokey spiced-up chickens then you'll find yourself in heaven. If you are really in a rush and can't enjoy a sit-down meal with One Love, then quickly grab one of their Boneless Jerk Chicken in a tortilla wrap.

Where and when?

 Next stop for One Love Kitchen will be Bath Road Central on 16th August. For more updates on this Food Truck's location check out the food calendar.

Food Lord

The stars of a Caribbean street food week will always be the goat curry and the jerk chicken. Topped with rice mixed in coconut milk and plantains, is how the Food Lord would serve you both of those favourites. The two are very well-known and much loved by everyone and that’s why Food Lord is taking the top place on the list because they know their stuff when it comes to Caribbean food. This Food Truck serves not only authentic island food but some mainland African meals too.
