BRITISH STREET FOOD AWARDS SET TO RETURN TO GUNWHARF QUAYS THIS JUNE

BRITISH STREET FOOD AWARDS SET TO RETURN TO GUNWHARF QUAYS THIS JUNE

 

Gunwharf Quays has announced that it is partnering with The British Street Food Awards to host the Southern heats of the competition at the South Coast’s biggest outlet shopping destination for the fourth consecutive year. The event will be running between 12-8pm on Saturday 8th June and 12-5pm Sunday 9th June.

 

The unmissable event will bring together the region’s best street food vendors on The Plaza at Gunwharf Quays. Traders will sell their unique food to guests over the long weekend, battling to win the public vote, ahead of the winner being announced at the end of the weekend.

 

The winner will then head to the UK finals, with an aim of representing the UK at the grand finale of the European Street Food Awards in Germany. Next year, the winners will form a European team to take on the winners of the USA Street Food Awards.

 

New vendors for this year include Sourdoughlicious, creators of Neapolitan pizza, along with Dirty Boy Burgers, and Flats who are known for their Candian-inspired vegan doughnuts. Further finalists of the Southern heat include Portsmouth’s own Justasia, specialists in Halal Filipino cuisine.

 

After casting their votes via a ballot box at Gunwharf Quays, guests can enjoy shopping at over 90 stores, visit the 14-screen multiplex cinema, bowling alley, art gallery or miniport at the outlet. What’s more, guests will be invited to enjoy a cocktail or local beer while listening to live DJ’s at the Bone Bar, which is new for 2024 and provided by Southsea’s own Coastguard Studio.

 

The British Street Food Awards were formed in 2009, as a way for up-and-coming street food traders to showcase their mouth-watering skills while celebrating the street food movement. They’re part of the largest food competition in the world, now including 16 European countries and the USA and have played a big part in making street food accessible to everyone. This year’s head judge will be Andrew Du Bourg, Head Chef at Hampshire’s own Elderflower Restaurant.
