Next weekend sees Pembrokeshire Street Food Festival (14-16 June) return to Tenby for another year, and I for one can’t wait.
There’s something to suit everyone’s tastes – from grilled cheese sandwiches to scrumptious pakoras and deliciousice cream.And if you don’t eat meat, dairy or eggs, you can still enjoy a variety of delicious dishes.
Here’s my guide to enjoying the festival as a vegetarian or vegan.
If you’re vegan, head to these stands…
Hands up if you want creamy, dreamy (and dairy free) ice cream. Roll up for Ice Green! Everything scooped up from Amy and Josh’s vintage 1960s caravan is all vegan and gluten free – and delicious to boot. My favourite flavour is the triple choc brownie.
This street food truck travels across the UK, dishing up curries and pakoras that are free from wheat, gluten, nuts, eggs and dairy – and every last bite is delicious.
Chai Street has restaurants across Cardiff and also cooks up delicious Indian-inspired dishes from its trusty van. A lot of the options are vegan and vegetarian friendly, too.
Enjoy traditional Welsh and British recipes with a modern twist. Owners Alex and Rachel have eaten their way across the world, but home is where the heart is, and you can taste that in their food. The cawlzotto (yes, that’s cawl and risotto) is truly delicious.
Makasih brings you the taste of Malaysia, including a few meat-free dishes, including the Malay vegan curry. Yum.
Tasty Taiwanse treats in the form of small but sumptuous bao buns. Vegans can opt for crispy ‘fish’ or jackfruit with black beans, which taste as heavenly as they sound.
Southern Italian dishes come to Tenby in the shape of fried pizza and arancini. Formerly known as Fritti, Modo Italian is an award-winning street vendor, and there’s even a vegan pizza on the menu.
If you’re vegetarian, you can enjoy all of the above as well as…
Mac and cheese is having a moment and it’s no wonder when it’s as good as this. Choose from a variety of different versions of everyone’s favourite comfort food.
They describe themselves as fully-fledged members of the hallouminati. If you’re a fan of squeaky cheese, you need to try it in the form of fries, wraps, burgers – or all three.
This year, vendors at Pembrokeshire Street Food Festival are reducing their carbon footprint by using biodegradable, sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging.
The event is sponsored by Encona, the UK’s number one hot pepper sauce brand, the festival is completely free and family friendly.
