Gory Gourmet – Zombie Food To Go

London street food scene will face a new challenger this week as the first ‘mobile gastronomers’ to offer a menu made up entirely of brains and offal roll into town.

The Gory Gourmet was created to celebrate next week’s release of zombie thriller series The Walking Dead Season 2, on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 27th August.  The second season follows police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincolnas he continues to lead a group of survivors across the USA, in the midst of a zombie epidemic.

The menu devised by street food king, chef Mark Jankel. Formerly of Notting Hill Brasserie and now running the mobile food company Street Kitchen, Mark freshly prepares the food on site.
