Halal at Southbank Centre Market in Kingston

Southbank Centre’s food market in Kingston upon Thames is one of London’s top food destinations.

Offering fantastic street food, delicious coffee, tea and sweet treats, the market not only has a selection of fresh produce to take home, but also offers Halal. Of the 30 traders providing food inspired by cuisines from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, the following are either Halal-friendly, cater for it as standard, or don’t but can do so privately.

SCFood Market is found on Southbank Centre Square each weekend including bank holidays and for an extended market at the end of summer.

Arabica Food & Spice
HALAL

Arabica Southbank Centre Market Kingston Upon Thames

We cater for Halal. All of our food supplied to South bank market and Selfridges Concession store is halal, except for food prepped in our kitchen at the Arabica Bar and Kitchen. We have rigorous systems in place to prevent cross contamination and there is no alcohol used currently in our foods.

A Jordanian man called Jad and a young Brit James came together years ago to launch and popularise the fabulous tastes of the eastern Mediterranean through Arabica Food & Spice.

While carnivores can feast on a free-range chicken shawarma sliced to order, herbivores can mix and match their favourite mezze or enjoy a freshly cooked falafel wrap with pickles, salad and tahini sauce.

The Curry Shack
HALAL

Horn OK
VEGGIE

Horn OK Southbank Centre Market Kingston Upon Thames

Our offering is completely vegetarian and Halal (i.e. no alcohol).

Horn OK were set up after realising that there existed a big puri-shaped hole in London’s diet.

The India street food vedors now serve their delicious range of veggy treats inspired by signature street food dishes gleaned from across the subcontinent.

All their food is freshly prepared at the stall while you wait and they make all their own chutneys to really bring their food to life.

Shrimpy
HALAL OPTIONS

Shrimpy Southbank Centre Market Kingston Upon Thames

We have an option to add bacon to our Shrimpster burger but it’s an optional extra. We are very careful to keep the bacon to one side of the grill so we can make the burger without it touching the bacon. We also do a Shrimptastic box which is deep fried and doesn’t go anywhere the grill at all. We use apple cider vinegar in our cucumber salad too which goes in the Shrimpster but you can ask to not have it, or have the Shrimptastic box which doesn’t have the salad in at all!

Since starting in 2013, Shrimpy have spread their message far and wide focusing on Scandinavian and British flavours.

Their signature dish is the classic ‘Shrimpster’, a Shrimp burger served with their delicious salads in a soft brioche with either grilled or dill battered shrimp. Look out for their seasonal specials which can vary from a twist on a fish finger sandwich to deep fried mussels.

Sandwiches are made to order and all salads are prepared fresh every day.

Bean About Town
COFFEE

Bean About Town Southbank Centre Market Kingston Upon Thames

Bean About Town are the proud owners of the Citroen H-Van bringing great coffee and a super-food snack.

The signature espresso blend offers a smooth, balanced, versatile cup with hints of cocoa and almonds supporting brighter fruit notes. Try the flat white with a special avocado, chocolate and nut slice.

Hank's Street Food
HALAL PRIVATE CATERING ONLY

We can arrange for Halal meat, fish and seafood options for private catering.

Hank’s Street Food is a New Orleans inspired street food shack, serving up delicious burgers and sandwiches every week, along with their famous loaded fries.

The Indians Next Door
HALAL PRIVATE CATERING ONLY

The Indians Next Door presents family recipes that have traveled all the way in space and time from the Punjab in the twenties to Southbank Centre via Kenya.

Try a freshly baked naan filled with slow-cooked lamb raan marinated in a variety of spices and homemade masala or a grilled chicken masala. You’ll also find a couple of traditional chicken and vegetable curries made from the freshest ingredients and available with rice or naan.


Although these two street food stalls do NOT offer Halal as standard, they have both confirmed – the former through Instagram, and the latter by phone – that they can arrange for Halal meat for private catering.
