Scottish Street Food Festival 2017

By @susieferguson

This afternoon, my husband and my big boy, who’s four, had gone off to see their beloved Partick Thistle play. My mum, baby L and I, decided to take a trip to the Scottish Street Food Festival down by the Riverside Museum in Glasgow.  

We arrived and managed to get one of the last spaces in a very busy car park. If we went again I would probably take public transport as the parking facilities were limited. 

We got out the car, I popped baby L up on my back in the Boba carrier and off we went to find some lunch! 

There was so much to choose from and my mouth was watering walking past each van and stand but I eventually settled on some halloumi fries from Chick + Peas van, followed by a pulled pork and sweet potato burrito, from the aptly named, Burrito! To go with my food, I got a freshly made fruit juice from the Zen stall. 

The food was unreal! Really fresh and full of flavour and the juice was delicious. Stuffed to the max, we headed to buy some goodies to take home. How good do these handmade chocolates look?! 

Armed with some scones to cure any Monday blues tomorrow, we headed past the Tall Ship (where there was some brilliant kids entertainment but baby L had nodded off) and into the museum for a wander. The cobbled street, the buses and the camper vans all took me back to childhood days spent wandering in the old Transport Museum. All in all, a great afternoon out and a refreshing change from chain restaurants for Sunday lunch. Fingers crossed the Street Food Festival returns in 2018!
