Street Food Producer of the Year: Great Food Club Awards 2020/21


Smoqued, Swadlincote, Derbyshire


Feast & The Furious, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire
Noni’s Family Kitchen, Leicester
Chez Sebastien Artisan Pizza, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

The winner is Smoqued for its authentic and carefully prepared South American street food.

From a distinctive yellow 1973 Citroen H-Van, Smoqued, run by James Gordon, serves mouthwatering dishes such as Lamb Barbacoa Tacos (smoked lamb shoulder, homemade lamb bacon, crema Mexicana, arbol salsa, chimichurri, coriander); and Confit Duck Tostada (confit duck leg, herb salad, pickled mustard seed, romesco, salsa verde, crema Mexicana, radish, coriander).

Each dish is full of flavour and meticulously prepared and put together.

Smoqued’s home is also exceptional – Campfire Trailer is a hidden gem found on an unlikely looking industrial estate in Swadlincote. This interesting location is an oasis of cocktails, craft beers and, thanks to Smoqued, excellent Mexican food.

All four Finalists greatly impressed the judges. We recommend you check them all out.
