The Street Food Chef Mexican Canteen.
The restaurant is situated just next to the Cantor building on Arundel Street; with a small take away shop on Pinstone Street. It offers a variety of delicious Mexican dishes that you can take away or eat in, with a choice of heats to please everyone. Whether you like your food fiery and hot or mild there is something for you.
The Street Food Chef started out as an “on the road” business, where the dishes were taken all over England and Scotland in an orange trailer, during which the menu was perfected and finally brought to Sheffield. With locally sourced ingredients, a full view of the food preparation and Mexican hat lampshades, this restaurant has a comforting yet energetic vibe.
You can also catch The Street Food Chef in their pop up trailer at events such as Tramlines, Sheftival and The Sheffield Food Festival. Street food in England has become a rising consumer trend within the past few years, as many people appreciate the authenticity of the food and speed of service.
Street Food Chef is often brimming with students looking for a satisfying lunchtime snack or post-lecture filler. No wonder this is the case, due to the exceptionally affordable prices and a service quicker than you can say “quesadilla”. The friendly staff and tasty burritos will definitely make you a regular at Street Food Chef and it’s highly recommend for everyone to pop in and try a taste of Mexico for themselves.
