Catering vans don't come few and much between within the north and north-east, however discovering one that provides knock-your-socks-off grub definitely is.
With such little house obtainable to experiment and prepare dinner up a storm, it should show exceedingly troublesome for road meals distributors to essentially stand out from the group.
In spite of everything, the market is consistently rising, significantly in Aberdeen.
In my view, that is greatest achieved by not solely providing a high-quality service, however serving up out-of-the-ordinary dishes or distinctive meals combos that you just wouldn’t spot in many food and drinks institutions.

The enterprise boasts fairly the next on social media, having gained over 1,600 followers on Fb alone.
However we are able to see why given their providing, which incorporates the likes of a sequence of delicious-sounding cold and hot wraps, sandwiches, burgers and extra.
So, it’s time to search out out what Julia and considered The Meals Venture’s dishes.
Was the mega breakfast wrap a foodie phenomenon, or ought to breakfast solely be eaten in a conventional method?
Mega breakfast wrap
The mega breakfast wrap, which had already been sliced (brownie factors for that) was stuffed to the brim with an assortment of tasty, quintessential breakfast elements.
From Stornoway black pudding, haggis, bacon and sausage to baked beans and a fried egg – a component that wasn’t required in our opinions because it carried little flavour – it was not possible for us to pattern all the things in a single chew. However we did what we might.
The haggis and black pudding had a warming kick to them, whereas the sausage was crisp on the surface and smooth on the within. The wrap was good and skinny, too.
Julia thought the beans had been a pleasant contact as they added some moisture and sauce to the combination. We had hoped to search out some tomato ketchup (or to cite Julia, Tommy Okay) for this, however sadly failed.
Candy chilli rooster wrap
Julia and I had been equally as excited to tuck into the candy chilli rooster wrap. Though we had been a tad confused because it was stuffed with curry sauce slightly than candy chilli sauce, however I definitely wasn’t complaining. Curry is a favorite of mine.
It was all going to come back right down to the sauce in the long run. And oh boy, it impressed us each.
The kind of curry sauce you'd decide up at your native Chinese language (a private favorite of mine), it tasted each candy and savoury and a beautiful gentle spice lingered on the tongue afterwards.
As for the rooster, it tore away with ease. The batter didn’t have a lot to supply by way of flavour, however if you’re lined in a sauce that good, it doesn’t matter all an excessive amount of.
Recent sizzling canine
Neither of us fairly knew what to make of the new canine. One factor was for sure, it was undoubtedly on the bigger aspect and would fortunately feed two slightly than one.
The peppery sausage was sandwiched in between a brioche bun, making certain the pair of us had been getting hints of candy and savoury. However we undoubtedly ought to have requested for some toppings to provide it that wow issue.
I hadn’t seen a sizzling canine made utilizing a brioche bun earlier than and it did show slightly flimsy, but it surely nonetheless did the job.
It was the candy chilli rooster wrap that got here out on prime at The Meals Venture, with a rating of 16.5/20.
