Whether it’s glistening racks of slow-cooked BBQ ribs, juicy Caribbean seafood chargrilled to perfection, or magnificent burgers of epic proportions, over the last few years street food has exploded in popularity with pop-up venues and foodie festivals taking place across the UK. Indeed, the glory of street food is that it allows up-and-coming chefs the ability to showcase their unique (and incredibly tasty!) innovations without the restrictions of having to stay in one location. This being said, often it is hard for street food enthusiasts, and food fanatics in general, to get their fix due to the fact that there is rarely one set location where street food is showcased week in and week out.
