The Scottish heat of the British Street Food Awards afforded me an excellent opportunity to sample some of Scotland’s finest street food in one location. Of course, with such a panoply of goodness on offer, the challenge was to limit things to what could reasonably be eaten in one afternoon.

Of the seven finalists, I’d already eaten at Scoff, Whitmuir, Nusou and Buffalo Truck, which left Loving Food, Big Blu and Wild Rover to try. I devised a three course menu from their offerings, which I duly ploughed through.

First up was an ox cheek and caramelised onion brioche from Loving Food. Based in Stirling and serving through the week from a pitch just across from the train station, I’d long been eyeing a visit.

The friendly folks in the green truck known as Herve were full of friendly chat and banter. They assembled my item in quick time, with the ox cheek looking drippingly moist.

At one of the nearby tables, I paused for photos then tucked in. The star of the show was the brioche bun, which they’d sourced via Lomond Foods. The filling was delicious and flavour-packed, too. It was a dish that will live long in the memory.

So a well deserved five stars for the Loving Food truck. Make it your business to visit them at their regular pitch in Stirling. You’ll be every bit as impressed as I was, I’m sure.
