British Street Food Award winners picked and prepped for European finals

by Sophie Haigh. | Sep 16, 2019

Mobile caterers from the breadth of the country headed to Street Feast’s Hawker House in London on 14th September to compete in the finals of the tenth British Street Food Awards (BSFA), supported by Hellman’s. 

Following five qualifying heats around the four corners of the UK, the sixteen finalists came together to fight it out for a prestigious award and a spot at the European Street Food Awards in Sweden.

Creators of Venezuelan street eats, Pabellón, came out as the victors from the day thanks to their hand-made arepas, slow-cooked sauces and fresh salads, which also earned them the award for ‘Best Sandwich.’ Judge, cookbook author and BAFTA-nominated actress Fay Ripley praised their menu and energy: “They’re my pick for the overall experience – lovely people, and lovely food." The team will now be heading to Malmo to represent Britain in the European Street Food Awards.

Second place in the Judges’ Choice category went to Homeboys, who also won ‘Best Snack’ after wowing both judges and the crowd with a show stopping dish of oak smoked ham hock and a six-hour braised jowl croquette. Wanderers Kneaded were in joint second place of the ‘Best Snack’ category with their figs and nduja pizza topped with an exploded burratina and organic hot honey. 

Glamorgan’s very own Pink Peppercorn Food Co. attained third place in the Judges’ Choice with their ‘Fishguard Cawl’ with Welsh chorizo, Tenby mussels, pan-fried MSC hake and burnt Kent corn. Attention to detail and dedication to using local Welsh produce earned them brownie points with the judges. The duo also walked away with ‘Best Main Dish’

Utter Waffle enjoyed an incredible night of award wins after earning recognition in the ‘Best Looking Food Truck’ category for Reggie the Waffle Wagon, plus ‘Best Dessert and ‘People’s Choice.’ The pair, praised by BSFA founder Richard Johnson for being “such a smiley team,” also have their passports at the ready for their flight to Sweden for the European Street Food Awards. 

The ‘Best Vegetarian’ award went to Turo, Turo for their Filipino inspired charred aubergine concoction, in a category which Richard deemed the toughest; demonstrating how the rise in vegetarian options is “a great indicator of how Britain’s tastes are changing.”

‘Best Burger’ went to Flying Cows for their ‘Truffle Shuffle’ creation, consisting of aged Dexter beef patty, mature cheddar, truffle and porcini mayo, beef fat caramelised onions and smoked bacon. Michelin-starred chef, Jon Marsden-Jones was impressed by the fact that the beef came fresh from Dan’s farm.

The Most Sustainable award, sponsored by Hellmann’s, went to Need Street Food of Hampshire and ArtiSam of Manchester - both praised for their commitment to sustainability and initiatives to prevent food waste in their businesses.

Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who took part in what has been another incredible year for street food!
