There’s nothing I love more than great food made by great people. Well, nothing apart from street food markets that are rammed with loads of great food made by loads of great people. Put me in the middle of a market decked out with more fresh produce than the eye can see and street food stalls run by passionate and creative chefs and I'm like a kid in a candy shop. Except I'm a hairy man, not a kid, and my candy is seasonally changing menus. As the Senior Content Editor here at MOB Kitchen, it's my job to be mad about quality street food and that's just one of the many reasons that I regularly spend my weekends travelling around trying to find the best eats around.
My passion for hitting the pavement and finding the unsung heroes of the food scene is why I’ve decided to launch Street Food Spotlight – a series in which I’ll look to highlight some of the brightest and most brilliant street food stalls across the UK and let you know what they’re all about. From small Ooni oven pizza operations to stalls dealing in authentic Laotian cooking, I’m after them all. And I want to champion the best for you to go and check out for yourselves. If you’ve got a favourite street food vendor that you think deserves a spotlight, please do reach out to me personally. I'd love that.
Until then, these are five street food stalls you need to be visiting at your next available opportunity. Happy eating.
