Drum roll please… Mermaid toast is here. Yes, Miss Trixie, a food stylist who counts Kim Kardashian in her fan base, is bringing her Insta-craze to east London on Sunday. Mermaid Toast is a very American export – it would seem that anything is a good distraction from Donald Trump – which attempts to bridge the gap between food and art.The East Village Market will play host to a free giveaway of 500 slices of multi-coloured dyed and embellish crushed avocados on toast because, as the old fable goes, life is too short for green avocado on boring old bread.
Designs include the popular Ariel, a pastel strawberry and mint concoction, and the Ursula a moody, dark ocean scene complete with blackberries and Nutella Oreo Yoghurt in honour of Ariel’s nemesis.
There will also be burgers and chicken from Lord of the Wings and alpine food from Raclette Brothers. If you can prize yourself away from all the giddy screeching and frantic hashtaging, that is.
