Feast On the Street

Once a month, some of Norfolk’s finest artisan and gourmet foodie trucks, trailers and gazebos pitch up outside the Forum in Norwich to give office workers, shoppers and tourists a helping of rustic local produce at its tastiest.

In my view, street food has similar parallels to street art: it grabs your attention, makes a statement, has a creative home-spun flair and pushes boundaries.

The line-up at Feast on the Street varies each month. This week there were stalls from some of the best posh fast food vendors in the county. This is James. You’ll find him and his “proper” pizzas at all good weddings in Norfolk and further afield. The Proper Pizza Co uses ethically-sourced meat and has a great vegetarian selection too.

Easily the best pizza I’ve had in Norwich. Norfolk spicy salami sourced from local farm, Marsh Pig, roasted red peppers and homemade chill jam from the award-winning Norfolk Chillis Galore. Each mouthful of pizza contained the perfect balance of sweet chilli jam and spicy, meaty salami ratio to creamy mozzerella and fragrant homemade tomato sauce. (Think he’s done this before.)

Stone-baked to order nonetheless:

Some of the gourmet wraps and sandwiches at Feast on the Street certainly pushed the boundaries of your humble take-away sandwich, including this hot wrap from Crumpet & Trumpet – slow-cooked Harissa lamb flatbread with a yoghurt and cumin dressing:

The Cupcake & Co also have a regular spot on Norwich Market and sell a great selection of tempting cupcakes including a vegan and gluten-free options too. (The salted caramel brownie looked incredible.)

Bullitt gourmet chuck steak burgers. Not for the fainthearted:

The Waffle Works – famous for their quirky take on a Belgium waffle, served with either a milk, dark or white Belgium chocolate topping:

E8 Food Co, famous Suffolk Salt Brisket, and Mr T’s Catering, who were serving up pulled pork sandwiches. This kind passer-by was only more than happy to offer up her sandwich for a Roots and Toots snap.

Thanks for asking Roots and Toots along James – and for the incredible pizza (that homemade salami!) – I’ll be back next month for round two.
