With so many announcements of new places opening around Edinburgh, this one is up there. A new street food quarter has opened next to Omni Centre and we finally have a central outdoor street food place that’s open seven days a week. Edinburgh Street Food features ten vendors and three bars, with an ample 900 square meters of deliciousness and good vibes.
Edinburgh Street Food opened its doors on February 25, offering cuisine from all around the world. As The Pitt street food market is leaving Leith and moving to Granton, this comes as great news for the locals in Leith.
The outdoor seating plan boasts cosy sheltered seating that can sit up to 250 guests with grass on the roof. So, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself no matter the weather.
Moreover, on top of the outdoor space, there is also indoor seating fitting up to 300 food lovers. In the meantime, Edinburgh Street Food has been working hard to get things organised for the big weekend that has just passed. They’ve been looking for local vendors and artists to create the space both residents and tourists will want to come back to time and time again, and there are some exciting independent businesses ready to feed us all.
The ESF line up includes Junk, Bundits, Chix, What Le Duck, Antojitos, The Peruvian, House Of Tapas, Homies, Fabbrica Pasta and SoftCore, with room for further rotating guest traders outside.
Bundits are bringing their mount-watering bao buns, Antojitos are introducing their flavoursome tacos, Homies Pizza are on-site armed with Detroit-style pizza and House of Tapas has all the tapas you could wish for.
What is more, the multi award-winning street food champion Junk has also made a (permanent) appearance with their famous tattie dogs, crumpet burgers and creative mac and cheese.
Edinburgh Street Food is set to be a welcome addition to the capital’s food scene, and we cannot wait to try it!
