Earlier this year, on a casual Saturday visit to the Duke of York Square market near the Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road, I saw a long queue leading to a food stall called Souvlaki Street. I hadn’t seen them there before and was curious about their popularity. One bite explained it. They quickly took on the role of my favourite savoury street food stand in London. And there’s a lot of competition. I’ve been back to see them many times since and have even tried to recreate them at home (which never taste as good, of course). They are only in SW3 once a month, but you can find them elsewhere around the city too.
Below, founders of Souvlaki Street – Evi Peroulaki and Conor Mills – answer a few questions about their motivation to start their small business, a few of the challenges and rewards that come with carving out your own path and a very reasonable short-term goal.
Catch them where you can if you’re in London; you won’t be disappointed.
