The healthy street food quest continued, today, with another trip to the Edinburgh Markets site at St Mary’s Metropolitan cathedral.

Having said hello to the lovely Bespoke BBQ folks, I headed towards Knight’s Kitchen, which primarily showcases African and Caribbean cuisines.

Today’s menu was a diverse mix, with peri peri chicken, and falafel wraps, sitting alongside meat and veggie gambo pies, and cinnamon doughnuts.

I was very taken with the look of the pies, with their bright, sunshine pastry particularly eye-catching. I opted for the veggie filling, to which the friendly stall-holder added a little Caribbean mango, pepper and cabbage salad, and some fierce looking chilli sauce, making it a grand little selection. For £3 it represented very nice value, too.

Gambo and salad

The dish proved to be extremely good, with the gambo providing a soft and flavour-packed filling to the beautifully crumbly pastry. The salad provided good freshness and crunch, and the sauce was indeed a fiery delight.

So, I was impressed by my stop at Knight’s Kitchen. They’re doing good work, and serving up fresh and original dishes. You should go and visit, soon, to sample their tasty food.
