The Wandering Yak is an award-winning streetfood truck in Cambridge with a focus on serious flavour delivered using fresh and vibrant ingredients.

We do streetfood - and fast food - differently, going (far) beyond meat in a bun. We believe that fast food shouldn't be a compromise and food that's good for you doesn't mean missing out - whatsoever.

Inspired by the flavours of the Middle East and India, we bring our plant, grain, herb and spice focused streetfood to the streets of Cambridge, where even hardened burger-lovers stand in line for their lunch.

We serve from our lovely truck at lunchtime food markets across the city (see foodPark) as well as festivals, fetes and events. We're also available for private hire to wow guests at weddings, birthdays, private dinners, corporate events and more. 

We were absolutely delighted to be awarded the 2016 Cambridge Food and Drink Awards streetfood/pop-up of the year. 

We felt The Wandering Yak were thoroughly deserving of the award. Their mezze platters consist of a wonderful array of fresh ingredients and diverse foods with tastes to suit all. Their creativity, effort, hard work is reflected in each recipe, which blew us away.

Track the Yak!

We aim to surprise and delight our customers at lunchtime pop up markets together with foodPark, Cambridge's only street food collective, which pops up around the city every lunch Wed-Fri as well as for one-off events all year round. 

We also love our regular evening collaborations with bars and cafes in Cambridge, including Hot Numbers on Gwydir street, where you can find us on alternate Thursday alongside their live jazz night.

When The Wandering Yak is serving on the streets of Cambridge(shire), we will use this website, Twitter (@wanderingyak) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/thewanderingyak) to let you know where we are. 

Full list of places you can get your Yak fix can be found in our Event Calendar.
