HDD & Friends: Best Food to eat at Notting Hill Carnival

Notting-Hill-Carnival-Food

Over the years we have asked some of our favourite djs, producers and carnival goers to share their Notting Hill Carnival tips with us. Here are some tips on food and drink at carnival (now updated for 2019).

 

Here are our tips for this year:
Call your local Caribbean takeaway and ask them if they have a spot at carnival, if not see if they can recommend a stall, there’s nothing worse than overpriced bad jerk chicken! If you can find a roti spot that does doubles that’s a winner, plus great for vegetarians. Our carnival drink is Appleton Estate rum with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime, avoid beers and stick to spirits if you don’t want to spend the day waiting in toilet lines.

I have one secret that will revive you in dark times. On Portobello road there is a place called the Grain Shop, they board it up during Carnival to look shut but if you push the door …it’s open. Never any queues and you get a big fuck off tray filled full of food that will keep you going. I’ve been going to carnival for 24 years now and still don’t trust the Jerk Chicken. Bring your own booze too, a lukewarm can of Red Stripe for a fiver taste like piss and takes the piss, go for Rum, alternatively for a classic carnival look buy a bottle of Alize.

I don’t have a favourite stall but in terms of drink it’s all about a plastic water bottle full of rum…
