On the go
Jersey’s culinary renown is firmly rooted in the field and under the sea. But with an ever-growing street food and festival scene specialising in gourmet grub on the go, there’s another world of flavour to be found in the island’s urban pockets.
Home to ‘Street Food Thursdays’, St. Helier offers a veritable platter of casual chow to choose between each week. Get stuck in to freshly grilled burritos from Domingo’s Food Truck. Grab natural snacks both savoury and sweet from the Wild Health shack. Or experience the delights of The Chugging Pig – served up in style by a former Michelin-starred restaurant chef from her vintage Citroën H-Type van.
Planning to visit a little later in the year? Then the annual Eat Jersey Food Festival (hosted by Ocean at The Atlantic Hotel) is pretty much reason enough. You’ll have the chance to feast on the best local produce prepared by a prestigious line-up of chefs – from the Channel Islands and beyond. And on top of that, you’ll also be supporting the producers and suppliers of this little island, all while raising funds for the Jersey-based Durrell Conservation Trust.
Top Tip: To stay just the right side of healthy, try The Chugging Pig’s homemade falafels with cauliflower and tomato tabbouleh, yogurt and sweet chilli. It’s hard not to go back for seconds.
