We’re pleased to announce that the King St. Christmas Market returns on the 18th December this year in collaboration with BEATS. Expect to see, smell and taste some of Bristol’s very best street food from our favourite traders, alongside great tunes, beers from the best bars of King Street and plenty of festive cheer. We wanted to introduce you to the nine traders who will be cooking up a festive storm at this year’s market. So without further ado, here’s the rundown.
Moorish create moveable Moorish feasts and flatbreads using the best seasonal, local and where possible, organic British ingredients. They travel to festivals, cook at markets and cater for parties, with flatbreads to go or feasts for sharing. They also travel round in their miniature piaggio prosecco bar with built in prosecco tap, so they pull up and you can pour yourself a glass or two. Perfection!
James is the mastermind behind Rolling Italy. You’ll usually find him trading from a red Piaggio Ape van – a true Italian work of art in our opinion! Together they conjure up the authentic taste of the Mediterranean, from Parma to Palermo. Expect hand-made pasta, rich sauces and sensational coffee, obviously.
Fulfil your hedonic impulses with an Aegean feast from the Eat Like A Greek team. These guys sell the very best locally sourced and free range pork and chicken Souvlaki wraps, alongside other homemade Greek favorites. All their seasoning and olive oil comes directly from their Samos farm or the surrounding Aegean area meaning the taste is as authentic and real as it gets!
The people want fresh, vibrant and aromatic vegetarian and vegan dishes – and Gopal’s delivers. These guys offer amazing Indian street-food that’s lovingly prepared. We recommend dipping into their notorious spinach and onion pakoras alongside their beguiling red pepper and coconut curry. It’s all served in biodegradable packaging too making it a guilt-free and winning combination.
Ah-Ma’s takes traditional Cantonese dim sum and blends in fresh originality to bring you delicious culinary creations. All delicately handmade from scratch using the tastiest vegetables and locally-sourced free range meat.
These guys bring you a mouth-tingling taste of Mexico and Central America, with a mission to provide a more authentic range of delicious, fresh treats. Everything is made in-house, their delicious salsas, authentic Belizean frijoles, chunky guacamole, even their soft, gluten-free corn tortillas are freshly pressed each morning!
On a quest to find some serious salt beef in the south west? Then your journey ends here. The Pickled Brisket are a salt beef bar serving a fine selection of hot salt beef sandwiches and platters – and they even have a top notch veggie version. All the meat used is 100% native British breeds, farmed on Somerset pastures so you know it hasn’t travelled to the ends of the earth and back to wind up in your bun. Welcome to salt beef heaven.
Viet Vite was born out of a love of Asian Street Food and is based on Vietnamese classics with a twist. Their food is both healthy and tasty in a unique way and can be finished off to one’s own preference with a choice of salads, dips and garnishes.
These guys are pros in the street food scene with 8 years of trading under their belts and have served up steaming crepes from Glastonbury to the Secret Garden party. If you’re in need of a sweet festive treat, this should be your go to food stop. They make all their crepes fresh to order with as many Fair-Trade, organic and local produce they can get their hands on.
Rib Street specialises in the use of sous vide cooking to produce high quality foods. What’s this? Well, food is seasoned, vacuum packed, then placed in a warm water bath for a long, slow cooking. No liquid is added which means all the flavour stays within the meat and intensifies during the cooking process. For example, they cook their pulled pork and pulled brisket for 20 hours, and their baby back pork ribs for ten perfect hours.
