MK CHRISTMAS FEAST AT BRADWELL ABBEY

You know me, I love food. So, naturally events like MK Feast are right up my street. A celebration of local food, drink and independent traders from MK. Today at Bradwell Abbey I pulled up a straw bale, soaked up the atmosphere with the live music – oh, and demolished a whole load of tasty grub along with hundreds of other visitors.

Not familiar with the street food scene in Milton Keynes? LISTEN UP because here’s a few notables who you need to know:

Good Times Cafe UK

If you like cheese (who doesn’t!?) then you need to try their artisan sourdough grilled cheese sandwiches. From the The Classic Four Cheese Blend to their specials like Welsh Rarebit, Cheese Steak or the festive Bacon & Cranberry Jam with Brie, they know how to make you go gooey at the cheese knees. All served from their 1976 vintage Citroen HY Van.

LouBou Tip: Don’t be fooled by the innocent jar of cookies on their counter. Freshly handmade, soft and chewy, they are some of the best I’ve ever eaten.

Saf’s Kitchen

Catering fresh homemade Indian food for Friday curry nights, parties, private events, weddings and just about excuse for a curry. Saf knows how to create some of the most delicious Indian food I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. Today at MK Christmas Feast was no exception with her Indian take-on Christmas Dinner with Tandoori Chicken, Bombay Potatoes served with Curried Seasonal Veg, Masala Gravy and a Popadom (The Tandoori Chicken was phenomenal and who could reject the Brussels Sprouts when they are curried that magnificently?!

LouBou Tip: If your diet requires you to eat GF or Vegan then Saf always has food to suit. The Vegan Veg Samosas are ridiculously tasty and the Spinach and Potato Pakoras are both GF and Vegan, both served with a side of salad and sauces to suit. Heaven!

Urban Grilla

Mobile BBQ experts Urban Grilla cater for takeaway nights, events, parties and functions. The meats they serve are cooked over real wood and charcoal and I’m a big fan of their garlic and rosemary lamb. Meat lovers heaven! What always impresses me is Urban Grillas’ attention to detail, with food being served with an array of inventive homemade sides including  couscous, coleslaw and salads at no extra cost.

LouBou Tip: Not a meat eater? Urban Grilla can have you rubbing your tummy with their BBQ’d Halloumi Cheese. Nom!

I wish I had more room in my stomach to have been able to eat from all the other local food companies who were in attendance too including: Stu’s Oven: Wood Fired Pizzas (I was drooling after trying a sample), Jeff The Chef Hog Roast & BBQs, Baja Cantina, Clucking Oinks, The Classic Cream Tea Company, Sizzlers All About The BEEF and Bandit Street Food – I am sitting here writing this and wishing I could try your food NOW.
