Are you up to the StrEAT Food Challenge?

Are you up to the StrEAT Food Challenge?

Are you serving the tastiest tacos in the UK? Do your burritos beat all others? Do customers go crazy for your steamed buns? If you specialise in any type of street food and you fancy a challenge, this is your opportunity to showcase your wares and allow you to officially say you are the best in the UK – and win £1,000 in the process!

The StrEAT Food Challenge is a brand new competition for 2019, looking for entries from market traders, quick service restaurants and casual dining operators, in order to find the best dishes currently being served up in the UK. Enter with the recipe that your customers rave about most and you could be cooking it alongside fellow street food pioneers at the live final held in London on 8th May – with the chance of winning Street Food Dish of the Year and the prize money.

All that and there’s more than one chance of going home a winner. Successful finalists will also get to show off their technical skill and creative prowess in the Technical Round, which will see them take on a selection of ingredients provided by the event’s sponsors. Plus there’s also a Wings Round, sponsored by Frank’s Hot Sauce, and the It’s A Wrap Round, sponsored by Major.

“We’re so excited to launch the StrEAT Food Challenge this year,” said Henry Norman, editor of OOH, the title behind the event. “Street food has become the biggest arena for innovation and new trends, and it is synonymous with high quality, delicious food. I can’t wait to see what the current street food market brings to the final!”

Entries for the StrEAT Food Challenge are open now until 15th March. Chefs and operators can enter now at

The StrEAT Food Challenge is sponsored by Ajinomoto, Bewley’s, Electrolux Professional, Farm Frites, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Love Joes, Major and Planglow.
