The summer months hurtled by in a food-fuelled blur. Between May and late August, the Street Food Warehouse calendar was booked to the brim with our summer tour, and having had time to take stock, let us now say this: WOW!

From Aberystwyth to Devon, Swansea to Somerset and Pembrokeshire to Dorset, the Street Food Tour took us to some of the most picturesque places in the country, and gave us the opportunity to appreciate golden hours and golden moments aplenty with insanely talented street food vendors and thousands of wonderful festival attendees across the UK. Hopefully, you were lucky enough to join us at one or more of our events in 2019, in what was our biggest year yet; nine weekends of street food madness, and as we look to the future, we're only just getting started...

Back in May, things kicked off with an explosion of colour and fun as we brought Swansea Street Food Festival back to the Museum Park. Sharing the weekend with Swansea Pride, the biggest bank holiday party in South Wales ensued. A selection of some of our favourite vendors brought their A-game, and the Pop Up Bar Hire sales were through the roof. The Westival boys rocked up with three days worth of party pumpers and served up tasty tunes across the weekend, and with Pride parading through the site on a heaving Saturday, it really was one for the history books.

Then, we took a drive to the South East coast as Sussex Street Food Festival descended upon Hastings. Amongst the awesome line up was a serious selection of Southeast Asian cuisine, and boy did they go down well. Another bank holiday success, and May ticked off.

If we're talking excitement levels for the Street Food Warehouse gang, June felt like December. Why? Because between 14-16, we were looking at Pembrokeshire Street Food Festival - it's like our Christmas!

The fourth Pembrokeshire Street Food Festival was, as predicted, a massive success. Located upon the picturesque setting on South Beach, Tenby, thousands of hungry foodies arrived to chow down on a bang-tidy selection of street food. Bao Selecta were selling buns quicker than they could make 'em, and we were absolutely thrilled to see family-run cheesecake champs Dutty's embark on only their second ever event! Did they sell out? Silly question, really.

Local party-starters in the form of the Westival resident DJs returned to the fold, turning the marquee into a makeshift dancefloor on Saturday night, whilst we also welcomed young children and doggos aplenty for what several punters claimed was one of the best family-friendly events in the area across the summer period. You'll have to judge that for yourself, and come along in 2020.

July went by quicker than you could say 'Mac and Cheese', as we hit the road up and down the country to deliver big street food vibes to Dorset, Aberystwyth and Somerset. Beginning at the beautiful coastal town of Lyme Regis, Dorset Street Food Festival entailed three idyllic days of sitting on that hill with the sun beaming down, and a long ol' line of street food to get stuck into. Tucking into Little Marrakesh's Moroccan chicken whilst staring at the purple sunset was a summer highlight for us.

From the South West of England to the West of Wales, our tour then debuted in Aberystwyth. The sun shone in our blessed homeland, as we brought a highly-lauded army of street food vendors. The mayor popped in for a bite amongst heaps of others, and it was a weekend of celebration all round as graduating students joined us at the Marina.

Another debut saw us back down south, as Somerset Street Food Festival arrived for the first time in Weston-super-Mare. At Italian Gardens, a mere amble away from the famous pier, with water fountains and cocktails flowing in equal measure, it was a pleasure to see so many punters from Weston and beyond heading home each evening with full bellies and smiling faces.

On our old stomping ground of Ilfracombe, it was our fifth (yes, fifth!) year of Devon Street Food Festival, and it was by far the most successful year we've had there so far. The weather was incredible, the place was bustling, and the setting was spectacular. Similarly, we got super lucky in Milford Haven with glistening sunshine for our second stint of the summer in Pembrokeshire. You'll have to check out this video to see just how awesome that weekend was.

Then, to wrap things up it was a biggy - the Welsh Street Food Awards in partnership with Hellmann's. Back where it all began at Museum Park, Swansea, Welsh vendors battled it out for the two places at the British Street Food Awards later this year. Pink Peppercorn took the judges prize for their phenomenal, Welsh-history-inspired dishes, whilst Malaysian maestros Makasih won the public vote for their array of Asian delights. A huge congratulations to both, as well as all vendors at the event. You could never get the Street Food Warehouse staff to pick just two - we love you all!

And just like that, summer was gone. 2019, the summer of street food. So... What now? Well, with vendor applications opening again soon for our 2020 events, there's no rest for the wicked. We'll soon be putting the forms on each individual event page and social media profile as they are released, so for the vendors - keep a keen eye out.

Between us at the SFW office, we've got all kinds of favourite dishes, ranging from the sweet to the meaty - as you can see here. But what about you? Are you a chocolate lover or a cheesy chappy? At Dorset Street Food Festival 2019, we have everyone covered. With international foods ranging from the savoury to the sweet, the veggie to the meaty, and everything in between, we've zoomed in on the various foodie vibes that you lot might be feeling when you come along to join us in Lyme Regis between 12-14 July.  

For the Veggie: Wallace and Sons

John Wallace, one time high-end chef, has been dishing delicious bao buns from the Wallace and Sons truck for around four years now after packing in the chaotic lifestyle of 80-90 hour weeks in the restaurant kitchens. Much happier these days, John will have you veggie lot drooling with his incredible Beer-battered Cauliflower bao. Accompanied with pickles, tofu and sesame dressing, Wallace and Sons are serving up little fluffy slices of heaven. According to Manchester Finest, John tried a myriad of recipes before getting the bun perfect. “I tried loads of different recipes to make the bread that just didn’t work." he said. "I tried Momofuku’s recipe, but couldn’t even get that to work.” Go and grab yourself some veggie bao, and you'll see what all of his hard work has created.

For the Sweet-Tooth: Extreme Chocolate

Extreme Chocolate, purveyors of incredibly rich and delicious chocolate brownies, have one of those street food stalls that makes people stop, stare and drool. Having racked up over twenty years of cake making and baking experience, the Extreme Chocolate team have spent years honing their craft. Whilst they've got their recipe's nailed down, they still continue to experiment and push the boundaries of brownie-making with all sorts of decadent flavours that'll have you buying 'em by the box load. If there's any appeasing a ravenous sweet tooth, it's right here.

For the Meat-Lover:  The Dog House

Oh, we do love Lynn and Ron at The Dog House. Extremely lovely people who dish the 'dogs in style. If you're on the hunt for some meaty grub in the sun at Dorset Street Food Festival, heading to see this dynamic duo and picking up one of their loaded hotdogs is a sure fire way of treating yourself. When you get to the front of their hefty queue, you've got two meaty options: the Chilli Cheese Dog - chilli of the day, homemade cheese sauce, guacamole, salsa, jalapenos, chipotle ketchup and crispy onion nachos - or the Kaiser Dog, with gherkin, curry ketchup, mustard, potato salad and wasabi crisps. Mouthwatering decisions to be made.

For the Spice Fiend: Street Food South West/Little Marakesh

Moroccan deliciousness comes from the folks at Street Food South West, aka Little Marakesh, who are serving their delicious and spice-infused flatbreads all weekend long at Dorset Street Food Festival. On the menu, there's spicy Moroccan lamb, chicken shawarma or chickpea tagine slotted into a soft, doughy flatbread. Alternatively, you can also chow down on their tagine pots, with some seriously delicious varieties, all sure to get your spice-buds tingling.

For the Cheesy Chappy: Alp Mac

If your passion is chowing down on cheese, this one's for you. The mountainous Mac and Cheese vendors at Alp Mac are novel in their approach to concocting the wholesome dish, which is a regular favourite for street food festival goers. Using Alpine Cheese as one of their speciality servings, Alp Mac were voted as Bristol's best street food in 2017 by Bristol 24/7. Environmentally conscious and innovative in their foodie creations, if you're a cheese fanatic then look no further than this lovely Mac and Cheesy lot.

As the Street Food Warehouse team look towards another weekend of seaside shenanigans in Lyme Regis this summer (12th - 14th July), it's got us thinking about the international foods that are going to be on show for attendees at Dorset Street Food Festival 2019. We're bringing an incredibly diverse selection of vendors down to the South West again this summer, with delicious cuisines spanning the whole globe convening in Lyme Regis to create a food-lovers heaven for an entire weekend. To give you a taste of the international selection that'll be on offer, we're taking a few pitstops at the vendors' counters to see where in the world they'll take you. 

Italy: Monte Forte

Now established as a firm (and favourite) resident of the Street Food Warehouse tour, Monte Forte do a seriously delicious pizza. We know that some people believe that all pizza is good, and there are simply just different levels of goodness, but Monte Forte is top tier, trust us. Innovative, authentic and beyond tasty, there's a reason why the Monte Forte folks are regular features at our festivals. What better way to taste Italy? Fantastico

Thailand: Little Somboon Kitchen

Fusing South East Asian ingredients to provide street food with a kick, Little Somboon Kitchen are on hand to take you all the way to Thailand. Lon, one of the Little Somboon chefs, grew up near Khon Kaen in the Thai heartlands, and so will be bringing the authentic experience and knowledge of Thai cooking all the way to us lucky folks in Dorset. From Teriyaki to Hoisin, there's an eclectic menu and super friendly faces from these guys. 

Spain: Idelica & Dios Mio Churros

Bringing a touch of Spanish class to Dorset Street Food Festival is Idelica. Will a paella menu to die for, they're seasoned pros on the street food circuit, having been on the road as a catering service since 2012. Having started out as online retailers, importers and distributors for Spanish fine foods and all things paella, Idelica are now on hand with their giant pans and a mouth-watering menu to match. We're all in safe hands, here.   
If that's not enough to quench your insatiable Spanish hunger, we've also got Dios Mio Churros on the bill for your desert course. Serving their classic Spanish doughy treats alongside a bunch of saucy sides - Champagne, Dulce de Leche and Habanero Hot Sauce - churros are a favourite amongst street food lovers, and this lot are one of the reasons why.  

China: West Country Dim Sum

West Country Dim Sum are relatively new on the street food circuit, having burst onto the scene last year with their Dim Sum delights. They've gone from strength to strength since then though, creating and serving innovative yet traditional Chinese dumplings and bao sarnies like it's nobodies business. Championing local ingredients in their dishes, their menu is a star-studded list of meaty, fishy and veggie deliciousness that'll no doubt be turning heads all weekend at Dorset Street Food Festival. There are some fascinating combos, too: 'pork, prawn and seaweed', 'venison, parsnip and apple' and 'smoke & spice crab n fish', to name a few. The main man behind the counter, Frazer Povall, says his influences range from an Australian Chinatown to his travels in Hong Kong. We're buzzing to have him on board, bringing us some very Dorset Dim Sum for our sunny Lyme Regis weekender. 

South West England: Furzeleigh Down Dairy

Aaaaaaaand, you're back in the lovely UK, you weary international jet-setter! What better way to round off your foodie travels than a scoop of ice-cream made only miles away from the festival site? Furzeleigh Down Dairy are bringing the local goods from Axminster to Lyme Regis, so you can enjoy an ice-cream by the beach. Nothing better, we reckon. The Furzeleigh Dairy peeps have been farming on the same site for four generations now, raising happy cows and serving happy customers. Sometimes, there's no place like home.
