Describe your relationship with food in three words.
Eat, Eat, Eat.
If you weren’t a street food trader what would you be doing? Tell us about your journey.
I spent many years sitting at a desk working for the Mayor’s agency for economic development, I am sure I would still be doing something similar if I wasn’t doing this. I started my business with my wife, after going out to many restaurants and thinking ‘we could do better than this’. My wife is an amazing cook, so I knew things would work out.
What would be your last supper or your last meal on earth be if you could choose?
It would have to be our Chapli Kabab, I never grow tired of these.
Who would you love to cook for (past or present)?
I like cooking for my wife, she is always amazed at how well I can cook. Though it doesn’t always go to plan. Also Elvis would be good to cook for, he had a great appetite in his Vegas years.
What is your foodie guilty pleasure?
Nachos, I looove nachos.
What’s been the hardest thing so far?
There are many humps to get over, there seems to be a new challenge around every corner, but we embrace it and get on with things.
What’s been the highlight so far?
The highlights are every time a customer takes the time to come back and tell us how good the food is, such a great feeling.
What advice would you give to people who are thinking of starting their own street food business?
Don’t give up the day job! Start weekends, if you enjoy it and think you can make it work, then go for it.
