With food vans all the rage, this New Year’s Eve is set for a stellar outing of street food.
We’re sharing our pick of the pop ups to look out for this NYE. And if you’re not heading out, bring the street food party vibe home with these marvellous must-try recipes.
Warm and toastie
We’re loving the trend for classics with a twist and this year it’s all about the humble toastie. Take a bite though and you’ll find there’s nothing humble about the mega flavours melted into these sarnies.
So hot right now
Food carts up and down the country are serving up amazing flavours with equally brilliant names (think Lords of the Wings, Wingmans). Or cook up a batch at home with these next-level chicken wing recipes.
Get a dosa this
If you like your street food plant based and full of Southern Indian flavours then look no further than the mighty dosa. Spicy, moreish veggie fillings stuffed into delicious rice pancakes make perfect on-the-go food.
Barbecues aren’t just for summer – if bad weather put a stop to the grillin’, we’d be missing a lot of burger flippin’! So our tummies are rumbling at the news that many a food van will be firing up their grills this New Year’s Eve.
Doughnut forget dessert!
Mobile doughnuts are nothing new but it’s 2019, people – they’re so much more than the jam-filled treats we’ve grown up with. And food vans are the perfect way to try a glorious variety of doughy desserts.
One van you’re sure to see is the mighty churreria. These Spanish/Portuguese fried dough delights dipped in chocolate sauce are regulars at street food events, but you can easily knock out a batch of churros at home with the help of the deep fryer.
Or try another dazzling doughnut in the form of a koeksister, a South African fried dough bun drenched in syrup. These coconut-dusted beauties are worth getting sticky mitts for.
Whether you’re out with the crowds or celebrating from the comfort of home, we wish you a very happy – and tasty – New Year!
