Street food traders will be bringing sushi wraps, ‘untraditional’ fish and chips, and gourmet waffles to race-goers at the Crabbie’s Grand National this week (9-11 April).

Jockey Club Catering has teamed up with Sunday Brunch chef Simon Rimmer and Street Food Revolution author Richard Johnson to select a range of food offerings for the races.

Cake Doctor, Hip Hop Chip Shop, Happy Maki, Bournville Waffle Co, Dogtown London, Fish&, Lulabelle, Everyday is Like Sundae, Nelly's Barn and Bullitt Guerrilla Dining are among the outlets chosen to provide food on-the-go over the three day event.

“While horseracing is a sport steeped in history, we are always looking for ways to keep our food offering fresh and exciting,” said Stephen Reed, Jockey Club Catering general manager at Aintree Racecourse.

“That’s why at this year’s Crabbie’s Grand National we wanted to provide outlets that reflect the current demand for relaxed and ready-to-eat meals.

“Our collaboration with top British chef Simon Rimmer and street food expert Richard Johnson ensures that we are providing the best street food throughout the festival, with simple dishes that are full of flavour and champion fresh British ingredients.”

The successful vendors will be situated in the Princess Royal food court throughout the festival, which is expected to welcome 150,000 guests.
