What is the definition of a pop-up restaurant? According to the renowned source, Wikipedia, a pop-up restaurant is a temporary restaurant.

These restaurants often operate from a private home, former factory, existing restaurants or similar space. I have a different version.

A pop-up is when two hipsters return from a far eastern tourist hotspot, think they have discovered a food type unknown to man, buy a book like ‘Jamie Does Thailand’, which also sounds and reads wrong and I apologise to Mr Oliver for the lurid connotations this has created in your mind.

They then buy a van and try and pedal Pad thai with a difference, like added coco pops, to the unsuspecting addled festival goers.

I appear to have digressed already but what I am trying to cannote is that perhaps these ‘pop-ups’ are not all they are supposed to be so when your editor says he has received a press release on a new one over on the Cerney lakes. You are slightly dubious when asked to go and check it out for fear of plantain covered in marsh mellows or a Yorkshire Pudding wrap.

Tommy’s Streat Kitchen, see what he did there, can be found at The Gateway Café on Friday and Saturday nights and the theme for the first week was Mexican. I prepared myself and my partner for nachos coated in bean chilli and a lot of Old El Paso.

This is not what we got and I may be forced to look at Pop-ups in a different way after this.

I have never met Tommy, and admittedly it is not a very native Mexican name, but he must have a father called Juan Sanchez or a brother called Pablo, perhaps he was brought upon the streets of Tijuana or has Hispanic blood running through those veins as this was Mexican taken to new levels.

They should build a statue in his honour in Cancún.

Taco Panuchos, filled with roasted red salmon or Spot pork chicharron and for veggies, a veggie Barbecoa of aubergine and marinated feta – all stunning.

Amazing colours and flavours and if you are a regular reader of this trip down the culinary Cotswold road you will know we always plump for the meat option but have to commend what I would describe as one of the best dishes I have had as a takeaway.

The Macho Nacho collard greens, as side was also delicious, griddled hispi cabbage and broccoli in a cheese sauce with onions and chives.

The rice was also not your run of the mill, red and baked with refried beans. Not very Mexican at all but the straw fries with spices and nacho cheese deserve a mention for simply being heroic.

We had a Street Cred set box for £30 with a few extra bits and it was plenty. Well fed and feeling in the mood for a little Mariachi music it was a night to enjoy.

The theme changes every week and Tommy is turning to Mezze.

Now, Tommy doesn’t sound like a North African, Middle Eastern or Greek name, maybe he was brought up on the streets of Marrakesh… but whatever he tries we are sure that with his style of cooking he will make a success of it.
