The Kingsmead Square Street Food Market - Winter 2019

The Kingsmead Square Street Food Market came back to Kingsmead Square from 29 November to 15 December this year. Filled with 18 different local traders, mulled wine, live music during the day and a DJ at night, it was a great way to sample different foods in a fun environment. 💃🏼

Now that the market is over, we thought that we would do a roundup of all the places that we tried while it was on. These street vendors often pop up at markets around Bath & Bristol so make sure to click on their instagram accounts (linked) to keep up with them. 😋


Grate

The guys over at Grate pride themselves on making great "posh toasties". We've visited them a couple of times before and it's always been absolutely delicious.

This time, we went for their three cheese and bacon toastie and it was so mouthwateringly incredible [£5]. Toasted sourdough, lots of melted cheddar, mozzarella and ogleshield matched with crispy, salty bacon - we couldn't ask for a better combination.



Alp-Mac

Bristol's original mac & cheese van, Alp-Mac. We went for their classic mac & cheese which was a mix of beaufort, ogleshield raclette and cheddar, topped with a garlic crumb and dill pickle. [£6]

This was SO good. Perfectly cheesy with the ideal mac to cheese ratio! The garlic crumb was delicious (who doesn't love garlic...) and the dill pickle added a lovely tang to it.



Momo-Bar

We also checked out Momo-Bar for some Tibetan steamed dumplings. We got a large box (7 dumplings) and you could choose a selection of different flavours from beef or chicken to spinach & cheddar or mushroom & potato. [£8]

These were really good, super filling and the soya sauce drizzled on top of the dumplings added loads of umami flavour. Yum!



Sosij

With a focus on BBQ flavours, Sosij creates yummy handcrafted sausages. As it's Christmas time, we went for a couple of pigs in blankets with a sweet cranberry sauce. [£5]

These were smokey and delicious. You get three massive ones wrapped in crispy bacon which is perfect on a cold day. 




Wood Chop Pizza 

If you're looking for Neapolitan sourdough pizzas, look no further than Wood Chop Pizza! We went for a margherita [£6.50] and one with chorizo & salami [£8].

Both were so good! The sourdough dough was super thick and fluffy, yet light without giving you any jaw ache to munch through those crusts. They were topped with gorgeous quality mozzarella, lovely fresh and fragrant basil and the salami and chorizo were full of flavour. 

They were freshly made, cooked in five minutes and overall were great value for restaurant-quality pizza. They aren't small like street food can sometimes be; just proper-sized amazing pizzas! 


Raclette Raclette

Who doesn't love raclette? It's a French Alpine melty cheese that's put on top of whatever you want really (meat, potatoes, vegetables etc.), and Raclette Raclette had a delicious menu showcasing it.

We got the tartiflette (cheese, potatoes, onion and bacon) [£9]. It was delicious, creamy and very cheesy. 



Overall, we had a *great* time at the Kingsmead Square Street Food Market. We loved how many different foods from all over the world fit into our cute little square, as well as the live music. Good vibes all around! We look forward to it coming back soon.
