[Edit] Closed but maybe moved to a shop in North St.
Doner Kebabs don’t do it for me.
But a homemade Greek pita gyros in another story and there is a food van on Brockenhurst Lane behind Sports Direct in the Solent Retail Park, doing just that.

When it comes to burgers Jamie Himlin-Ladd goes for the Cookhouse Burger from the Cornish Cookhouse at the beachfront on Hayling Island.
“What an absolute joy to turn up for a swim in the sea & see this absolute beauty of a truck in the car park. After a quick swim I ventured back & was given a warm welcome by two super friendly ladies. The food was divine, I had the salt beef brisket bagel & my friend loved her vegan option, it is a must try. An absolute gem of a find & looking forward to returning again very soon to work my way through the menu.”
Street food as it is meant to be eaten
How do you see the world?
Is it perfect? Of course not.
Can we fix all the problems? Of course not.
Can we make a difference? Of course we can.
Doesn’t matter how small the achievement we believe in making a difference to people’s lives, it may be in a very small way, but that’s the core of what we do, we want to make a difference and that is our purpose.
It’s important to appreciate food, it’s such a fundamental aspect of all our lives, we believe that cooking and eating together can be a very beneficial experience and helps form bonds in a community. We also believe that good food should be healthy and above all tasty!
It is difficult to say much more that that.
Whilst looking, I happened to stumble over the Community Oven and it is difficult to say much more that that. I tire very quickly of sleek professionally fitted coffee shops, restaurants and farm shops. Gravitating rather to greasey food trucks specialising in high carb junk foods liberally doused with fried onions, spicy sauces and accompanied by a sticky drink.
Honest, unapologetic and unpretentious.
But not all of the time. Occasionally one does stumble over someone else hell bent on doing different.

Topped up with fuel at the Applegreen filling station on Hayling. Then forded the water course on the road to the parking site behind the ESSO garage on the Billy trail, for a couple of Billy Burgers.

Visitors to Portchester Castle will inevitably bump into Claude.
Not your standard same old, same old. This vintage mobile coffee bar is deliberately different.
Offering locally roasted coffee, home baked cakes, savouries, waffles and their delicious crab sandwiches.
But what is really special is the passion and enthusiasm of everyone involved. Providing a service that is different. A genuine committment to local, to their customers, to the community and if you happen to have forgotten your wallet there is a token board which everyone is welcome to use to redeem a suspended coffee that has been paid forward.
For the past fourteen years Yummez Burger Bar has been flipping burgers on the Petersfield Rd
In a lay by on the right hand side of the road just before Midhurst. Fast food, done right.
Supported by regular customers looking for a quick bite on the move. They offer a standard menu of breakfast baps, burgers, toasties and hot dogs. Along with cool drinks and a selection of snacks
Open until four o’clock and you can phone ahead to arrange to collect your order on the way past.
Couldn’t resist the Zimbos Mombe Burger
They are exceptions to the rule. But have a nasty feeling that Covid put paid to this.
