Chefs have breakfast all wrapped up

YOU can put anything you like in a burrito, says Abi Golland – whose Street Food Chef bar won the Eat Sheffield Award for favourite food outlet.

It’s not precisely true; her chef husband Richard tried fish and chips: “It was disgusting!” But their latest offer is proving a hit with hungry workers.

Breakfast burritos are a winning combination of bacon, eggs and traditional Mexican ingredients, all rolled up in one handy foil-wrapped tortilla.

“It’s a meal on the go – like a pasty or a sandwich,” says Abi.

You take a wheat flour tortilla, fill it with bacon, egg, black beans and cheese, then add salad, sour cream and salsa as hot as you like. Vegetarian and other options are also available; prices range from £2–£6.45.

The Street Food Chef has come a long way since it opened in Pinstone Street two years ago.

Abi and Richard had never been to Mexico but they had seen vibrant street food stalls in other cities and realised Sheffield was missing out.

“We wanted a business to run together and we liked the honesty and the theatre of street food. I’m passionate about healthy, quality food and Richard is a brilliant cook, so it seemed like a good idea.”

They invested in a mobile unit and launched at the Continental Market in Fargate. Their goal was to secure a regular city centre pitch and the vacant unit in Pinstone Street seemed perfect.

The couple quickly built up a regular clientele of shoppers and office workers, who voted them into the top slot for the Eat Sheffield Award.

lThe Street Food Chef is open daily, 8am-4pm, and is running a prize draw with the chance to win free lunch for a month.

Every breakfast burrito will contain a raffle ticket and each Friday the holder of the winning ticket will win a burrito a day for a month.
