FoodPark, Cambridge

The joy of living just a 10 minute drive from the husband's office means a lunch date is now a feasible proposition for us, so from now on we've decided to meet once a week to try different Cambridge eateries. Today we decided to try ourselves some fashionable street food.


Street food is all the rage these days, hugely popular in London particularly in the Hip East End. Streetfeast held every weekend from May - September in Dalston Yard is a large affair with a wide range of stalls packed to the rafters with freshly cooked fast food from across the continents.




The desire for good food that doesn't clock up the food miles seems to be spreading across the country, and no less than in Cambridge where a number of small businesses seem to be popping up across the city. FoodPark Cambridge, based in an unassuming yard a few minutes stroll from the main line railway station, is home to a number of traders on Thursdays and Fridays then for the rest of week they pop up across the city.


We plumped for some deliciously soft steamed Japanese buns (bao) filled with grilled chicken, salad and a wasabi dressing. I also tried the salmon with chipotle which was seriously good too. Both were made to order right there in front of us by Guerrilla Kitchen. These guys are passionate about what they do, calling themselves 'culinary freedom fighters' they are more than happy to take the time to tell us all about it. Unpretentious and to the point they know their stuff, and I'm sure they play their part in the Cambridge food revolution!




Look out for Guerrilla Kitchen around town once they get their new van, which you'll also be available to hire for private events/parties. At £6.50 for two divine buns we'll be sure to return to FoodPark!
