If you’re in the mood for some deliciously wicked gourmet street food, head down to The Observatory and search out Wight Nice Food.
Keep an eye out for their bright blue vintage horsebox (named ‘Faith’ by the way) where you will nd Matthew and Nina selling their wares. Today’s selection was a variety of burgers and freshly ground, Island roasted co ee. The service was great, friendly and fast.
I had a chat with Matthew while waiting for my burger to brown to perfection and found out they’re a relatively new enterprise, starting up earlier this year.
They’ve already found their feet and you can now nd them at various public events. They’re also available for private hire too- Find them on twitter or on their website (wightnicefood.com) for more information.
I opted for the bacon cheeseburger, with extra fried onions and I was certainly not disappointed. Cooked to order, there was no hint that this was one of those burger van o erings that had been sat on the hot plate for a few hours. It was fresh and wonderful. I highly recommend heading down the hill and grabbing a something to eat – it’ll give you that extra boost of energy you need to keep the party going over the weekend.
