Street Food of the Week: Native

Ashleigh Arnott

So, what are we eating?
A venison shoulder wrap containing cauliflower rice, winter salsa (radish, brussels sprouts, charred corn and hot sauce), pickled red onions and smoked garlic aioli. £5.

I try to avoid foods that rise to fame on Pinterest...
Don't worry, the cauliflower rice is there because Native prefer to use British produce wherever they can rather than because they mislaid their Spiralizer.

As long as I won't be hungry immediately after eating it.
Not at all – all those crunchy, fresh flavours make for a very satisfying (and guilt-free) meal. The venison helps too, of course.

So this deer once wandered our green and pleasant land?
The very garden of England – it's from Chart Farm in Kent. Native's menu changes according to what they can find in hedgerows, on local farms and in woodlands. Ivan has worked at River Cottage HQ and Imogen grew up in the countryside where plucking pheasants was commonplace, so they know what they're looking for.

Where can I get it?
At Startisans on Thursday and Friday lunchtimes and occasionally at Street Feast's Hawker House. They're also due to open a restaurant in Neal's Yard in the next few months.
