I figured it was still worth braving it, though, so toddled up to the BBC tent at Potterow to check out their offering.As with last year, coffee excellence is provided by Brew Lab, so I stopped there for a Hasbean espresso and a natter. While I sipped, I ordered a burrito from Smoak, whose street food truck was parked just next to them.
Smoak’s slow-cooked meaty selection is available year round in Pivo Pivo, a bar on my regular route in Glasgow. I’ve been meaning to visit for months, so was delighted to run into them, here.My beefy chilli burrito (£6) was soon with me, served in a big cardboard tray, which looked like excessive packaging, but when I opened it I found that there was a little portion of salsa and chips sitting alongside the burrito, which was nice.
The burrito was really good with excellent depth to the meaty component and good piquancy from the saucy elements. The rice, which I often find a disappointing filler in these type of things, was lightly fragrant and added real value to the dish. I was impressed.
So overall, I was glad to finally visit Smoak. I’ll need to give them a visit in Glasgow soon. Certainly, you should make it your business to try their wares while they’re in our fair city. I’m confident you will enjoy the experience.
