Mockingbird Street Food, an innovative brand revolutionising the chicken and vegan chicken street food scene, has been awarded the Street Food / Takeaway of the Year at the Lincolnshire Food and Farming Awards. This accolade highlights their commitment to offering 'big city' culinary choices in Grimsby town, with a focus on inclusivity and quality.
Mockingbird stands out for its unique approach to street food. Specialising in both 'Mock' (handmade Seitan vegan chicken) and 'Bird' (ethically sourced, high welfare chicken), they provide an equal choice for both vegan and non-vegan customers. Their menu, designed to be as inclusive as possible, ensures that no one has to compromise on taste or variety.
The brand's dedication to catering to various dietary needs extends to gluten-free and healthier options, featuring grilled dishes, salads, and gluten-free breaded tenders. Their efforts to bridge the gap between vegan and non-vegan food preferences are evident in their meticulous food preparation processes, with separate areas and equipment for vegan dishes.
Mockingbird takes pride in sourcing ingredients locally, ethically, and sustainably, ensuring that every item is freshly cooked for each order. Their pursuit of delivering a premium street food experience is matched by their growing presence in the corporate and events sectors, having been part of notable projects and events.
As a fun, quirky brand, Mockingbird has been instrumental in elevating the culinary landscape of Grimsby and its surroundings. They are a testament to what a small, independent local business with a dynamic team can achieve. Winning the Street Food / Takeaway of the Year is not only a celebration of their journey so far but also a stepping stone to greater heights in the culinary world.
The Lincolnshire Food and Farming Awards are organised by Stonebow Media, publishers of The Lincolnite, and MyLocal Lincolnshire. The event was generously sponsored by Barclays Eagle Labs, Duncan & Toplis, Visual Print & Design, Masons Rural, Fizzco and Sills & Betteridge.
