In 2010 I quit the rat-race and went to China, ending up staying there for five years. During that time, my friends Jaimie and Joe went travelling around Asia and met up with me. Food was the main driver for our travels and we found there was a lot more to Chinese food than what we were used to in London and from our Chinese families. So when we were all back in London in 2015, I went to dinner at Jaimie and Joe's house and by the end of it, aided by lots of wine, we decided to start our own street food business. Our niche would be Chinese regional food based on the street food that we discovered and loved in around China. By this time, the food scene in London had been growing so fast and street food had exploded everywhere. Three weeks after that pivotal night we booked a spot at a food festival, sold out and never looked back.
