Memorandum Monday explores

A big wave to you all on another overcast / might rain Monday morning. 

I'm extending 'weekend' to include Friday lunchtime so that I can share my visit to a new lunch venue

a friend was telling me that she had seen notices about a street food market every Friday so as it was not raining on Friday we went along to have a look.  There were 9 stalls selling food, many of them in their own vans, with lots of tempting offers such as pizza made to order; crepes; Mexican wraps; spicy curries. 

I chose the shrimpwreck stall and had shrimp bun - tempura battered shrimp (prawns I would have called them) in a bun with chili mayo and salad - delicious.  My friend had Thai green curry.  Sorry we had eaten them and were wiping our mouths with satisfaction before I thought I should have taken a picture of the food - I'll try to remember next time.  Because yes I will be going again - there were other stalls I wanted to try and the mix of stalls changes each week.

For those of you with Edinburgh connections - the market is in Fountainbridge and you can find details here

Wishing you all a good week with some sunshine

I'm a big street food fan and am hoping to try out a new to me street food market when I go up to London next week.

Hope you have a lovely week.

Sounds like a fun adventure. There are "apps" to find the local food trucks location for that day. I think there is even a TV show devoted to food trucks. I, having a VERY delicate digestion system, am very leery of trying anything from them.

Finding great food is always a fun adventure - but, yes, do snap us a picture first next time - so we can live vicariously without the calories!

Sounds tasty. Look forward to hearing what you have next.

Sounds yummy and FUN! I think the weekend can definitely start anytime on Friday! :)

That sounds excellent. I have heard about one here but I have never been in the right place at the right time to try it. You've made it sound very tempting..

Wishing you a great week

We love street food too! Shrimps tempura sounds wonderful!
Waving to you on Tuesday, I forgot to post yesterday!

That sounds a nice treat every week - I love that retro looking van without even tasting what they sell!
