A French fry-flavoured milkshake - made with actual potato - will be exclusively available at a street food market in Stratford this weekend.

You can try the salty-sweet concoction, which is inspired by some people’s habit of dipping fries into milkshakes, at the E20 Street Food Market in East Village from noon to 6pm on Saturday, July 31.

East Village will be giving away 250 free milkshakes throughout the day.

The shake is made from vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, cream, a dash of salt and potatoes - and even comes with chocolate-coated French fries for dipping.

Eoin Thomas, who is community and events lead at Get Living’s East Village, said: “We pride ourselves in putting on incredible events for our residents and neighbours, and we’re thrilled to be back, in-person, hosting such a great event for the food lovers of east London.
