In the midst of the high rise offices in Canary Wharf, there lies a gem of a food market called KERB on the Quay. It’s the perfect place to get some fresh air, stretch your legs and escape from the hustle and bustle of working life! It’s open from 11am-2pm every Tuesday to Friday and it brings together different street food traders, giving Londoners exciting and delicious food to try!
Today I decided to leave my packed lunch at home and head down to West India Quay to try out Cally Munchy… a street stall that serves up halal African food!
They specialise in jollof rice and different protein toppings. You can pick from chicken, steak and cauliflower.
It’s all halal!
I picked the suya steak Cally pot with all the toppings! Suya is a spicy meat skewer and it’s an incredibly popular food item in West Africa. Cally Munchy’s version uses bavette steak which is marinated in a special peanut spice rub also known as suya spice!
It was absolutely delicious! The steak and rice were packed with flavour and all the toppings complemented the dish well. Be aware that the Nyirangongo sauce is pretty spicy and it definitely tantalised my tastebuds! The addition of desiccated coconut, salad on the side and kidney beans in the rice were a nice touch to help take away the heat and also added different textures to the dish.
Overall I think that Cally Munchy is a great street food stall and they are doing an excellent job in providing unique, great quality halal food to Londoners. I’ll definitely be back to give their Cally chicken a go!
