Marrying the party vibes of a Brooklyn food fair with all the excitement of an Asian night market – thus Bite Club was born!
Our trademark street food party started as a summer evening event back in 2013 but has since made star turns in numerous guises and locations, from Christmas markets to Easter fêtes and beyond.
Consultancy and Business Development
As street food pros and savvy gastronomers, Bite Club offers customized consultancy to refine your food business or to get that germ of an idea off the ground.
Europe is in the grip of a street food revolution.
All across the continent, traders are taking traditional street foods and repurposing them for a new generation. The streets are becoming a laboratory for new food ideas. But which country does it best? At the inaugural European Street Food Awards in September, we’ll find out.
Rounding up this year’s season, Bite Club will host the first ever European Street Food Awards, the world’s biggest food fight, and become a melting pot of Europe’s street food scene. In collaboration with the British Street Food Awards, Bite Club will present Europe’s best food trucks in a two-day event.
All this summer, the main street food countries in Europe will be holding massive food fights, at the coolest festivals, to choose their champions. The public will get to try every competitor’s food and vote for their favourites.
The heats will be in:
- Carroponte, Italy – May 26-28
- Groningen, Netherlands – June 3, 4 and 5
- Barcelona, Spain – June 10 and July 8
- Paris, France – June 18
- Mariefred, Sweden – July 21-22
- Dublin, Ireland – August 5-6
- Berlin, German North Heat – August 13
- Heilbronn, German South Heat – August 25-27
- Kaliningrad, Russia – September 1-3
- Manchester, Britain – September 15-17
The winners, plus a few wild cards chosen by industry experts, will gather for the finals at Arena/Hoppetosse at the end of September. Participants will compete for titles in different categories, as well as the Best of the Best, the European Street Food Champion title. A panel of judges consisting of Michelin-starred chefs and food critics will announce the winners. The European Street Food Awards will be accompanied by a series of seminars, talks, and panels, expect DJs, food seminars and fire pits
Voting at the finals will be on the new European Street Food App which will showcase the best street food on the continent. With live GPS maps showing who’s trading where and when, it will also contain the latest news stories from a top team of street food journalists, and allow punters to vote for their winners.
You can check out more information about the app here or download it directly on the iOS app store (soon on Android):

The ESFAs were the idea of the team behind the British Street Food Awards. Founded back in 2010, the BSFAs are deemed to be the toughest in the world, with five regional heats culminating in a live, national cook-off, judged by the general public and Michelin-starred chefs. Ironic that, in the year of Brexit, the British are now desperate to get back IN to Europe.
