It was really good to see Fountainbridge Street Food Friday so busy on a recent visit, despite spit-spots growing into full-blown rainy rain. What’s more there was a trader that was new to me, so I got the opportunity to give them the once over.
Having said hi to the folks at Alplings and Pizza Geeks, I headed towards the new stall in question which was called Screaming Peacock. It promised venison sausages and burgers, and pheasant burgers. I opted for the latter topped with cheese (£5) which was cooked to order.
Served on a morning roll, the cheeseburger was topped with lettuce and mayo, then wrapped in a napkin to aid ease of munching.
It proved a a decently juicy eat which was good news as pheasant can often be very dry. The addition of the well-melted cheese was a good idea to bring mouthfuls together. It was really good fare.
So overall, once they iron out some queue management issues – they were rather slow – the Screaming Peacocks look to have a good new offering to enhance the diversity of our street food provision. I’ll need to try their venison next time as it looked good. Give them a go next time your see their peacock-feathered stall.
