Scottish Street Food Awards shortlist announced

Finalists revealed in inaugural event to select champion Scottish food truck

Established in 2009, the British Street Food Awards have attracted Scottish entrants in the past, but the current dynamism of the scene in Edinburgh and Glasgow has inspired founder Richard Johnston to launch a separate competition for Scotland. Open to the public to taste, feast and, ultimately, vote, the event will take place over three days at The Pitt in Edinburgh in May. The chance to represent Scotland at the national awards in September will be battled out by the following shortlisted outfits:

Barnacles and Bones
Chick and Pea
Fresh R-evolution
Buffalo Truck
Prague Shack
Umami Spice Girl
Moo Pie
Cheesy Toast Shack

Cav and Co/Hamish's Hogs
Haggis Man
Crema Caravan

Semi-finals take place on Fri 12 & Sat 13 May, Finals on Sun 14 May. Tickets for each of the three days available from The Pitt
