Try Latin American Street Food On The South Bank This May
Argentinian steak, anyone? CAU Restaurant serve it up, street style.

Comida Fest, a street food market celebrating Latin American food and drink, returns to the South Bank on 21-22 May after a successful debut in April.

A selection of street food traders covers Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Cuba, Venezuela and Colombia, and will include sandwiches, street snacks, cocktails (including a pisco bar), burgers, Latin BBQ, coffee and even a stall dedicated entirely to passion fruit.

There will also be plenty of live music and entertainment including a rumba workshop, live DJs, zumba, pisco and mescal masterclasses and face painting (could get messy).

If you really get a taste for Latin American while you're there, don’t forget to enter the competition to win a trip for two people to Rio de Janeiro. Hola!

Loosen those hips with a few Latin American cocktails at Comida Fest.
