Van

Van

It had been a rather busy morning at the salt mines so when lunchtime came around I thought a quick trip to the Tram Stop market was the order of the day. I was delighted to spot a trader I hadn’t tried before in the shape of the Rost van.

Indeed it was their first day of trading anywhere. It was good to see that they seemed in good control of things are were very far from having a first day flap.

I was lured in by talk of a smoked venison pastrami slider with pickles, mustard mayo, crispy onions and salad (£5). I ordered that, then listened as the chap told me that they’d made the pastrami themselves from scratch.

I was promptly on my way with item in hand. I sat on a nearby wall to munch. It proved to be satisfyingly good eating, with the pastrami packibg a lovely smoke and the supporting elements working very nicely. I was very impressed.

Falafel salad

In fact, I was so impressed that I went back the very next day to try their falafel salad (£5). If anything, it was even better with delicious sprouting broccoli, wonderfully perky harissa dressing and oodles of freshness.

So overall, Rost is starting its journey from a really accomplished and strong position. The dishes I sampled were both outstandingly good. I look forward to many future visits and would recommend you give them a whirl.
