The best street food show in the world just got better!
The finest traders in Britain (and beyond) have been cooking up a storm to win the British Street Food Awards since 2010, but this year they’re being joined by live music curated by Universal Music, street food crazy golf, live reviews of the food pages from some of the best journalists in the country and the world’s first aroma DJ – at the British Street Food Festival.
The British Street Food Festival have been setting up shop in some of the country’s most perfect ‘found’ places – starting with a Norman castle in Oxford on May 1-4. Whether it’s under a circus tent in Cardiff, by a barge of fireworks on the docks in Leeds or a mystery location on the Cornish coast, they will all be spectacular parties, with food and live music at their heart.
The ‘Wales and West’ heat was held in Cardiff on the 5-7th at the ever popular Street Food Circus in the city centre, featuring a huge circus tent filled with communal tables for people to sit and soak up the atmosphere, live music to accompany the event, and of course, great Welsh and West local food on offer!
The public who visited and sampled the 13 vendors’ foodie offerings voted throughout the weekend to choose their winners, who will go on to represent Wales and the West at the British Street Food Awards in September.
Both voted winners of this heat, Patagonia and Wild Fig Farm are local to Cardiff. Patagonia offers Welsh beef with a hint of Argentinian swagger, with the 72 hour beef short rib being a huge hit, while Wild Fig offered gorgeous brûlées and ice cream sandwiches from their vintage van.
