The Hippy Chippy

www.thehippychippy.co.uk

1-3 Broadmead, Bristol BS1 3DX (between Mountain Warehouse and Sports Direct)

NEW permanent shop opening 8th December

The Hippy Chippy is a 1972 VW campervan converted to a chip shop and then hand painted by hippies in psychedelic colours. The van always attracts a lot of attention and quickly becomes a memorable location at any festival or event.

We spent a lot of time trialing different potato varieties and finally found one that gave us the results we were looking for. We found that by double blanching the chips at a lower temparature and then finish frying at a higher temparature we were able to create a super crispy chip that was nice and fluffy inside.This triple cooking method is what makes them absolutely delicious. Also we cut the chips chunkier so there’s a bit more to bite in to. We offer a selection of traditional accompaniments along side few interesting ones of our own.  We have a lot of repeat custom!

Hugo’s Greengrocer Deli

www.hugosgreengrocer.co.uk

73 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1ES

A Greengrocers opening in the heart of Bristol supplying fresh fruit and vegetables almost entirely from a 15-mile Radius, the most local greengrocer in Bristol.

Hugo’s aims to keep locality and quality at its centre, not margins and prices. The shop will use 6 key suppliers, so we will always clearly display the supply chain from the soil and grower to how it has ended up in the tray the customer is considering. This transparency allows our shopper complete trust in the fact that what they are eating is from a sustainable source, local and either organic or non-organic.

In addition to trust in the produce, Hugo’s local aims to serve a variety of healthy extras, such as coffee roasted Bristol, Fresh Pasta made less than 200 metres away and great pro-biotic products like Kefir and other exciting items.

Nourish is a new venture from Robbie Tack based in Larkhall in Bath. His plant based menu aims to use seasonal vegetables sourced from local suppliers. Robbie and his team hope to create a vibrant, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for drinkers and diners alike.

Our ingredients are 100% plant-based (95% of the menu is gluten free – and there are gluten free options for things like pie pastry. Nobody goes without). We locally source our seasonal vegetables, and use no processed soya or rapeseed products. We strive to support local suppliers and businesses. Everything is cooked from scratch in our kitchen. Please bear this in mind when waiting for your meal. If you have any dietary needs or allergies, it is essential that you communicate this to our staff.

We are a meat, fish, egg & dairy free kitchen, however we do use (or use products containing) nuts, sesame, celery, mustard, lupin & sulphites. We locally source our seasonal vegetables, and use no processed soya or rapeseed products. Our ingredients are 100% plant-based.

Tailored Jackets

www.facebook.com/tailoredjackets

I’m just a one man operation trying to make it in the street food world. Perpetuating stereotypes I hail from Dublin originally. Casually trading on St Nicks market on Tuesdays and sometimes Fridays, 11-2.30pm. I think there’s a gap in the market for someone doing a baked potato with a bit of love. Most places they’re either undercooked or cooked and then reheated in the microwave before service.

I lightly oil and salt my spuds and cook them in a Faux victorian potato oven to get them crispy. My smokey baked beans are vegan and have ingredients such as smoked paprika and liquid smoke to give them that distinct flavour. My vegan chilli has pretty much all the ingredients under the sun to give it that depth of flavour but the stand out ones are dark chocolate, lime juice, coffee granules, liquid smoke and treacle along with pinto, cannellini and kidneys beans with smoked paprika, cumin, coriander and chilli powder and a fair few more. You also have the option of adding my homemade guacamole to the chilli which has gone down well.

Casa Mexicana

29 – 31 Zetland Rd, Bristol BS6 7Ah

We’ve been in operation on Zetland Road since 1986, and are proud to have remained independent and family-run. Here at Casa Mexicana we go beyond standard street food fare and offer a more authentic taste of Mexico in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We use only the finest fresh ingredients, organic herbs and vegetables, all cooked in the finest Mexican tradition. Along the way, we have been recognised as the best Mexican restaurant in Bristol and one of the best in the UK by The Guardian, The Independent and The Sunday Times, but our focus has always been on the satisfaction of our customers and offering a real experience.

We have a fully stocked bar of beers, wines and sangria, not to mention a wide selection of tequila and cocktails. So whether you are looking for dinner, a cheeky churros or just popping in for a margarita, come and see what we can do for you!

Our vegan menu as it currently appears is attached. I know for a fact we have one vegan friendly wine but have not been able to confirm all of them. We also have a couple of vegan desserts available on rotation so when we update the menu with this extra info I’ll send a new one over.

Gló Foods (vegan)

www.glofoods.co.uk

Gló Foods is a new family-run business. Last year after reading lots of research supporting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, we decided to give veganism a go. Having been vegetarians for 10 years and already not viewing animals as food, we thought the transition to vegan would be quite straightforward.

Whether you are vegan, a meat eater who wants to eat less meat and diary, a vegetarian who wants to transition to vegan, dairy intolerant, or you simply have a vegan guest visiting for the weekend. You can trust that all our products are free from meat, dairy, eggs and honey, and are 100% plant-based.

We hope to expand our range so if there’s anything you’d like to add to your order and you can’t find it on our website, send us a request and we’ll do what we can to satisfy your plant-based needs. Enjoy!
