EcoVillage, KSP’s onsite café, put a bit of spice and sunshine into lunchtime by holding a Street Food Week. This involved cooking Taiwanese and Malaysian dishes to order out in the sunshine throughout the week.
There was a wide variety of authentic curry, rice and noodle dishes available to tenants. Home cooked shrimp crackers, Roti Paratha flatbreads and samosas were also all freshly prepared by the EcoVillage team. Dishes ranged from Green Thai Curry to Spicy Peanut Satay Chicken and Vegetable Malaysian Curry, with three different dishes on offer each day.
Street Food Week was a huge success with tenants across the Park. Emma Elgar, a KSP employee said: “The food was delicious and very fresh. It is not something that I would have tried in a restaurant. It was definitely something different and tasty to brighten up my lunchtime!”
Emily Brooke, Owner of EcoVillage said: “I am delighted at how well the food went down with everyone on the Park. It was nice to be able to get outside to do some authentic cooking and provide our customers with something different. It is fantastic to give people the opportunity to sample food they may not necessarily try otherwise. It is a popular menu with our Cucumber Catering branch of the business and is a top hit with external companies. We have lots more ideas for different foods and dishes at EcoVillage so watch this space!”
James Speck, Director at Kent Science Park said: “It is wonderful to see all the different dishes that EcoVillage can produce, and events like this are the ideal opportunity for our tenants to do something different with their teams, such have a lunch meeting while sampling exotic cuisine – and it is so different from the usual ‘meal deals”.
