It was mildly chilly out, but there was plenty to keep us warm in terms of mulled wine and delicious food!

There was so much fantastic food on offer, but here are a few of my personal winners:

Sub Cult, Rodeo Sub

The British Street Food Festival 2015: Sub Cult, Rodeo Sub: Hung Beef, Shallot Marmalade, Truffle MayonnaiseThis sub was amazingly good – 28-day hung beef, provolone cheese, pickles, spinach and black truffle mayo in a delicious brioche bun. All of the subs from Sub Cult looked delicious, and this was a definitely favourite.

The Cheeky Italian, Poutine

The British Street Food Festival 2015: The Cheeky Italian Poutine

I mean, just look at that poutine. For those of you not familiar with poutine, it’s a Canadian dish (originally from Quebec) of fries, cheese curds and gravy. The Cheeky Italian version was served with beef shin, and is practically a work of art. Delicious.

The Crema Caravan, Creme Brulee

The Crema Caravan serve perfect creme brulees from their adorable food truck, and is without a doubt the cutest food vendor at the event. They make Crema Catalana burnt to order, too!

Disappointing Eats:

As a massive fan of pigs ears, I was so excited to try Angus and Mitchell’s pig tail, which was served with a slice of pickled apple. I don’t know whether it was my portion, but I found it to be really gristly and fatty, which was disappointing as I was looking forward to it – that might just be my personal taste, though.

It was such a great event – getting all of the best British street food traders in one place – what could be better?

I absolutely love street food – always have. I’m lucky enough to live and work near some of the best places in London for street food, and I firmly believe that the street food scene in the UK is second to none.
