We know that you’re all coming to Hidden Door to let loose after a year and a half without live music, so you may be wondering how you’re going to keep up your energy to make the most of our exciting program.
Well there’s no need to worry, we’ve got you covered!
Once again, we’ve been lucky enough to convince some of Edinburgh’s most legendary food vendors to provide scran and drinks, catering to all tastes. From Scottish Street Food Award finalists to charities using food to fight for change, we’re so proud to welcome these fine establishments to our Granton site, to keep you dancing through the afternoon and into the night!
Global food curators and Edinburgh street food legends the Fat Flamingo will be bringing their blend of spice, fire and butter to the Hidden Door site. If you’re into large portions, mouth-watering meats and fried delights taking inspiration from all corners of the globe, you have got to check them out. Vegan options too!
Bringing a taste of Asia to this year’s Hidden Door we have Taberu, serving Japanese treats handmade in Edinburgh. Look out for their iconic green and pink ex-army trucks and Kawaii racoon mascot, and make sure you give their exciting and varied menu a try. Delicious veggie and vegan options too.
The photos below speak for themselves, right? Chicken Skoop will be serving up their legendary Buttermilk Fried Chicken and freshly baked Waffle cones with a variety of flavours and toppings. Despite being relatively new on the Scottish street food scene, these guys have made a huge impression, and you don’t want to miss this!
This year, we are so proud to have Social Bite offering delicious coffee and cake made from fresh, local ingredients.
Known for their advocacy in the fight against homelessness in Scotland, the organisation’s workforce is made up of 25% formerly homeless people, and 100% of their profit goes to charity. So, if you want a great meal and to put your money towards solving social problems, Social Bite’s the place to go!
Also deserving of a massive shout out are Scran Academy, who are generously providing our awesome volunteer force with meals throughout the festival, with support from Corra Foundation. Scran Academy are using food and catering to combat poverty and empower young people, and their diverse group of inspiring youth volunteers come from all across the city, including many from the area of Granton near the Hidden Door site.
It’s been great to be supported by the local community in this way, and our volunteers have been so grateful for their generosity and great scran!
