Today was the Scottish heat of the British Street Food Awards at the Tram Stop. Cauldron Foods are sponsoring the snack category at the event and decided to send me along to see what was happening. It was a hive of activity when I arrived at lunchtime. Unfortunately Mr Edinburger wasn’t well enough to join me so I was left to my own devices and wandered around having a look at everything on offer.
My mission was to suss out the vegetarian options. Being a meat eater this was not the first thing I would think of ordering. But with a hungry tummy I set about having a look at what was on offer and was surprised to find an array of enticing mouth-watering meat free options.
The Buffalo Food Truck grabbed my attention first. So many lovely meat dishes on offer but also a veggie option southern fried cauliflower, cheddar, lettuce and sauce all on a tortilla wrap.
Next was Wild Rover Food. I had to quickly snap some pics and move on as the food smelled awesome. Their vegetarian option didn’t quite capture my hunger as much as the meat dishes did. But the few vegetarian options were popular with the enthusiastic customers, looking for a change.
The one who really did catch my eye was Whitmuir Organic Farm. The smells emanating from the van were delicious and plenty of meat-free options to choose from.
The atmosphere was brilliant. Lots of families and groups of people enjoying lots of delicious food in the sunshine. Plenty of food choices for meat eaters, vegetarians and those somewhere in between. All the vans there could be winners.
Good luck to the winner of the heat.
Cauldron have also launched a new street food inspired recipe book. That you can find HERE. We’ll definitely be having a look and seeing what we can make.
