5 New Food Trucks to Try in LondonBy Malika Dalamal

While the sun is shining and the days are still long, why sit indoors when you can eat on the streets? London's street-food scene is thriving with pop-up festivals and food-truck gatherings all over town. Here's a rundown of the new kids on the block this summer.
What: Dough Bro
Why: Wood-fired Neapolitan pizza with fluffy dough, a crunchy base and simple, fresh toppings made while you wait in a mobile pizza oven.
Must-Try: Spicy Nduja topped with tomato and mozzarella.
What: The Brûlerie
Why: London's first crème brûlée specialists launched their food stall this summer with a range of the mini pots torched right in front of you.
Must-Try: The unusual range of flavours includes Coffee & Cigarettes (coffee crème brûlée with pecan nuts and salted caramel) and The Breakfast Club made with pecan nuts, Corn Flakes, banana and bacon.
What: Julia's Homemade Brownie Bar
Why: These deliciously gooey brownies made their first appearance earlier this summer. Large chunky slices of perfectly baked chocolate brownie are served with creative toppings and even made up with lollipop sticks for kids.
Must-Try: Caffeine Kick — topped with fresh almonds; or Peanut Butter and Pretzel — the perfect combination of salty and sweet.
What: The Cheese Truck
Why: Comforting, melted cheese toasties made with British cheese are grilled to order.
Must-Try: The Cropwell Bishop Stilton sandwich with bacon and pear chutney is practically perfect.
Why: Ice lollies and Poptails (alcoholic lollies) are given a gourmet makeover with unique combinations of fresh fruit flavours.
Must-Try: The menu changes daily depending on what fruit is available in Spitalfields Market but we love the strawberry and banana smoothie or watermelon and mint lollies. Also don't miss the frozen Pimm's Poptail.
