Street Food has never been more popular in Norfolk. We introduce five Feast favourites and suggest the best places to enjoy curries, loaded fries and artisan pizzas!
Monzu Wood Fired Pizza
Run by husband and wife, Darren and Claire Cameron, this pizza company is based in The Broads and visits many of the villages in this beautiful part of the world.
The couple make all the pizza dough themselves, using the finest Italian and locally sourced ingredients, with the mozzarella coming from an English dairy.
They aim to create Neapolitan style pizzas, hand stretching each one and using authentic ingredients such as San Marzano tomatoes and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
Their van has been carefully converted and boasts a beautiful handmade Italian wood oven which burns English kiln dried hardwood which is sustainably sourced .
Monzu means ‘great chef and artist,’ and helps to create a sense of fun for all occasions. The company is available for weddings, parties and all other events.

Run by Udaya Lakshan Jayasinghe, nicknamed Lucky, the company offers super tasty Sri Lankan food, created using Lucky’s mother’s original recipes. Central to all dishes is a secret curry paste which isn’t hot and spicy, rather it is fragrant and warming, giving texture and depth. Many of the dishes, his curries, rotis, dosas and flatbreads, are vegetarian and gluten free, and expect plenty of coriander and coconut milk.
Lucky, who has worked as a chef around the region, is based in Aylsham and takes his lovingly converted horsebox around the area.
The Duck Truck
Run in Norfolk by Charley Watkins, the Duck Truck is a regular at events in and around the county, with people loving the crispy duck rolls! Add in choices such as chips cooked in duck fat, confit duck leg with a pomegranate salad and pulled duck in a brioche bun! Yes, it is all duck! This is a well established business, with high standards.
Fat Teds Streat Food
Based in Sheringham, with a stall in Barchams Yard, and run by Ashley Graham and his family, the company is named after the family dog! They also pop up at leading street food events like Junkyard in Norwich, with punters loving the big portions and tasty sauces.
Look out for firm favourites such as dirty fries and nachos, loaded with meat and cheese, burgers and flatbreads – with the chicken burger coming highly recommended. Add in a side of halloumi fries – we would!

Based in North Norfolk, this company (which also serves up stone-baked pizza) offers us delicious yet dainty Dutch pancakes and very naughty cheesecakes! Expect toppings and flavours such as lemon meringue, chocolate fondant and Eton Mess. Unsurprisingly, these are really popular with children!
