Pioneers of the Scottish street food movement, NUSOU noodles have won the accolade of Scottish champion in the British Street Food Awards 2014.
NUSOU competed against seven of Scotland’s finest street food traders in Edinburgh on Saturday (30 August) in the Scottish heat of the British Street Food awards. NUSOU will now be representing Scotland in the UK national finals in Leeds on the 26-28 September.
On winning the Scottish heat of the British Street Food Awards, founder John Reynolds said:
“We are truly humbled to win the Scottish heat of these awards, especially as we were up against Scotland’s finest street food traders.
“We have worked very hard to promote our noodle soup, travelling across Scotland in our NUSOU van. I’m so happy that our ethos of serving healthy, locally sourced fast food is obviously as important to our customers as it is to us”.
Co-Founder and Head Chef Derek Muircroft added:
“It is great to have street food recognised in the culinary world and (we) can’t wait to participate in the finals this September”.
British Street Food founder, writer and food critic Richard Johnston commented:
“Given the nature of Scottish ingredients and Scottish provenance, street food here makes so much sense. To see restaurant menus served at supermarket prices out of beautiful vans, trucks and trailers was enough to make this Englishman jealous.
“The NUSOU product is fresh, healthy and good to look at and adds a real professionalism to the street food scene. Roll on Leeds!”
The British Street Awards final takes place in Leeds 26-28 September with finalists from across the UK participating.
