The Durban Street Food Festival is back for its fourth year - with a dazzling smorgasbord of some of the best food trucks and gourmet pop-up stalls in the city.
Festival organiser, Georgios Kretsos says the event is a celebration of culinary cultures within KwaZulu Natal and that the festival is split over three floors, one for craft, one for food and one floor for beverages.
“The main aim of the event is to educate people about the different cultures in KZN and showcase their cuisine under one roof. I love food so this event is very close to my heart. I’m passionate about learning about cuisines different cultures have to offer and this festival serves as a platform to share my passion with others.” he says.
Kretsos adds: “This year, we have a lot more vendors and will be showcasing lots of local products. The festival this year features a rum garden, gin garden and craft beers. We have a much wider range of beverages this year. We have around eighty vendors at this year’s festival, Lucky Star, BB Bread and Converse are just a few. We have stalls to cater for all needs whether you’re looking for something halaal, vegan, vegetarian or dairy free.”
