The best thing about the Street Food takeover and living in a city means there are far more festivals and events celebrating humble and delicious delights. The German Christmas market in Leeds is just a few weeks away now, and it marks the official start of the festive period for me, while the June Food Festival is the highlight of my summer.
However, I'm hoping the photos I did manage to snap with my trusty iPhone will be enough to give you a flavour of the event.
Next up was two sweet potato, chana and saag 'pasties'. They were halfway between a pasty and a chapati and packed a whole lot of spice. I love hot food, but even I was glad of the mint yoghurt it was served with and my mouth had more than a little burn after taken a few bites.
The one complaint I had about the event was that, you paid £8 for a ticket and then still had to pay £6/£7 for each item. I know this is reasonable for food festival produce but on top of the ticket price it just felt a little steep. However, me and my friends had the best time with lots of laughs and pickle-related cocktails (yup). There was also crazy golf there, which seemed a little odd, but went down a treat.
The British Street Food is on a tour around the UK, landing in Glasgow next. If you are nearby, I would definitely recommend going along - just take plenty of pennies and maybe a spare stomach.
