Scotland | 6 of the Best Places for Street Food Takeaway in Aberdeen

As an avid foodie, who's main hobby is "going out to eat" this current lockdown situation we find ourselves in has seriously impacted our routines. You might be used to grabbing lunch at local cafes, meeting friends for brunch every weekend or enjoying date night at your favourite restaurant. Suddenly we can't do any of those things. However, there is one option - we can still get food delivered! I thought I'd give you a little inspiration by sharing some of my favourite street food style places to grab takeaway in Aberdeen.

Beef tacos from Latinway in Aberdeen

1. Latinway - This Belmont Street eatery specialises in Latin American dishes. Not just your typical tacos and burritos - in fact I highly recommend you try something other than these! My personal favourites are the cheesy cachapa (a folded corn pancake). You can choose from various fillings and sauces, and if you fancy going all out get in on the side dishes too! Empanadas make a great snack and the fried cassava is a great alternative to traditional fries. For dessert? Order the golfeados - they're a bit like a cinnamon swirl, with cheese!

Where to order? Direct from LatinwayJust Eat or Deliveroo.
*Latinway are now open for delivery and collection.

The Pigs Wings takeaway Aberdeen

2. The Pigs Wings - Scotland's Takeaway of the Year 2018 offer an eclectic menu of dishes from around the world. Inspired by the owners' travels, you'll find everything from American loaded fries to German bratwursts, Argentinean chimmichuri steak and Middle Eastern style vegan falafel. Personally I'd order the Hot to Trot shredded pork sub, and their churros are infamous in Aberdeen!

Where to order? Direct from The Pigs Wings on 01224 633777 or Deliveroo.
*Currently open Monday - Friday 4-8pm, Saturday - Sunday 1pm-9pm.

Brisket topped poutine, veggie chilli and pulled pork sandwich from Smoke and Soul

3. Smoke and Soul - When they're not popping up at street food markets around the city and shire, you'll usually find Smoke and Soul in their kitchen residency at Six Degrees North. If you love BBQ food, you'll love their slow smoked and pulled meats. Their poutine topped with brisket is to die for! I'm also a big fan of the pulled pork with mac and cheese - proper soul satisfying comfort food.

Where to order? Deliveroo. You can also buy vacuum packed meat packs to cook at home.
* Available Wednesday - Saturday from 4-8pm

Muchacho Mexican takeaway restaurant in Aberdeen

4. Muchacho - My absolute favourite place for Mexican food in Aberdeen! I usually order a quesadilla with adobo chicken and chipotle sauce, and love the nachos topped with pork carnitas too. You can also now order a TacoBox - 10 tortillas with 2 sauces, 2 fillings, sour cream, guacamole plus chip and dip for £20! Ideal for a movie night with the family.

Where to order? Direct from Muchacho on 01224 639574 or Deliveroo.
*Currently open 12-9pm daily for delivery only.

Maggies Grill fried chicken with dipping sauces

5. Maggie's Grill - Another one for soul food lovers, Maggie's Grill on Holburn Street specialises in tasty American classics from the deep south. Think gumbo, smoked meats, 7 cheese macaroni and delicious, crispy fried chicken. You have to order a side of hush puppies, and make sure you try the New Orleans beignets dipped in chocolate fudge sauce as well!

Where to order? Order online or call the team on 01224 582167
*Maggie's Grill are open Wednesday - Friday from 5-9pm, and Saturday - Sunday from 12-9pm

Chickn' burger and loaded fries from Roots Catering in Aberdeen

6. Roots - Last but  not least, one for the vegans among us! Or just anyone who loves good grub to be fair. Roots are always a highlight at any street food event in Aberdeen and their beachside truck has gone down a storm. My top picks from their menu are the chickn' katsu burger and signature loaded fries, which come topped with cheese, pickled red cabbage, jalapenos, sriracha mayo and shiitake bacon crumble. As if their plant based treats weren't enough, you can even treat yourself to a biscoff milkshake!

Where to order? Roots Catering website.
*Currently available Tuesday - Friday 4-9pm, Saturday - Sunday 12-9pm.

Of course these are just some of the street food options available as takeaway in Aberdeen but I had to whittle it down to a few personal favourites that I find myself visiting again and again. Let me know your own favourites in the comments below!
