Another year, another Glastonbury Festival food guide. This year’s edition features both new and old favourites, from spicy Thai and paella to pie and mash. Although this year’s festival was missing a few classics (namely Yeo Valley Yoghurt and the much missed Tapas breakfast), I still managed to scout out some tasty new dishes.
Paella: Not only is this paella delicious, it’s also very generous in portion size and pretty affordable too. I paid £4.50 for a small paella that was more than enough. Served with fresh parsley and lemon, a perfect festival bite.
No Bones Jones: The fritters at this stall are lightly spiced, crispy and extremely tasty. You can also opt for more substantial salads and one-pot dishes and bakes at No Bones Jones, but of you’re after a snack then these fritters with raita and tomato salsa hit the spot.
Love Thai: The popularity of Love Thai is shown through the huge queues you can often see trailing from this stall. I went for the red tofu curry with jasmine rice and it was great, would recommend if you’re hungry and into a bit of spice.
Chip Off the Old Block: These chips stole the show for me this year. Incredibly crispy and generously coated in cheese, I think these may be the best cheesy chips I have ever eaten. The deluxe chips however are on another level of greatness. Smoked cheddar and about 1/3 bigger in size, what more could you want from cheesy chips?
Manna: Situated next to the equally tasty samosa stall near the Other Stage, Manna is another great new offering for Glastonbury 2017. The tofu Singapore noodles are great, and say yes to all of the toppings of course!
Organic Veggie Burgers
As always, the selection of incredible festival food on offer at Glastonbury blew me away. I’m gutted that it will be another two years before I can experience it all again, but I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait!
