Krispys Burgers Win Inaugural Melbourne Street Food Awards

Krispys Smash Burgers made it an amazing clean sweep by taking out the Title of the Best 'Overall' & People's Choice' Street Food Stall at the Inaugural Melbourne Street Food Awards at the Food Yard Mornington on Friday November 24.

The Melbourne Street Food Awards was staged over Five Heats from June and culminated in the Grand Final with Stalls battling it out for the $5,000 worth of Market Credits with Organiser Unrivalled Events.

Director Paul Harvey was delighted with the 1st year of the Awards "The event has captured the imagination of both the Food Stands and the Public with all heats being full to capacity with Trucks and well attended by the general public. The reason we created the Awards was to take Street Food in Australia to the next level. These days you can't just turn up at event and people will buy your product to be successful you need to build your brand and that starts with social media and then goes onto other areas like presentation and look of your Food Stand along with the Theatre of cooking the Street Food on the spot. What has become evident is that 90% of the winners had all of these elements so hopefully now that will encourage all other Street Food Stands to follow suit."

The rain poured on Grand Final Night but that did not stop the crowd from turning up to support this event and they were not disappointed in the standard of food on offer.

Head Judge of the 'Overall' Category was Andrew Ballard a former Australian Chef of the Year and Captain of the Australian Culinary Team was also impressed with the level of Street Food in Australia "The Food was stunning. I'm blown away by the standard as it went above and beyond with everything we looked at like presentation, look of the stall, service and of course flavour. The winner Krispys had the Full Package, and this is just the start for these Awards."

Winning Street Food Stall Kris from Krispys Burgers who has only been going for 2 years said 'Its Awesome. Its a simple burger done well and with love and I appreciate the love from the followers who came down tonight it means alot"

So that wraps up the 2023 Titles and they have already been locked back in for 2024 starting in June at the Food Yard Mornington again.
