It’s always good to see new traders joining the street food circuit, so it was with considerable excitement that I strolled along to the Tram Stop market to sample Fresh Revolution’s first day of business.

With a large range of different dishes on offer from gumbo (take note, Union of Genius), to hotdogs, to veggie burgers and a range of sides, ingredients were sourced from excellent local suppliers, such as Whitmuir, Mellis and Armstrong’s. The also had filter coffee (£1) from Mr Eion.

I was lured in by the beetroot, leek and blue cheese burger (£4), which came topped with onions and mushrooms.

The friendly counter folks went about preparing items, which were soon with me. As is often the way, I toddled over to the cathedral steps to sit and eat.

The burger proved to be absolutely outstanding. An excellent bun was packed with a highly flavourful burger, with each of the main ingredients prominent and in well-judged balance. Rarely have I seen a first-day trader produce something of such impressive quality, so there must have been careful preparation before today’s launch.

In time, I reckon they’ll narrow down their offering, as I think favorites will emerge. Keeping things simple is important with street food, so it will be interesting to see how things develop.

So overall, Fresh Revolution are starting life from a very impressive position. I was highly impressed by the accomplished work on show. I’ve already been back, this time sampling excellent arancini, and look forward to visiting again, soon.
