Surf-Inspired Street Food In Croyde 2021
OPEN from the 2nd April – 30th September 2021.
Discover the taste of Croyde Surf-Inspired Street Food this summer at Biffen’s Kitchen.
Come and find me (Biff) and my team at the Ocean Pitch Campsite between 2nd April – 30th September.
Head to Google to view my LIVE opening times! You can expect breakfast from 8:30-10:30 and evening meals from 17:30-20:00…Don’t leave it too late as it is only a small van and we do sell out often.
Just a 2-minute walk from Croyde Beach and a 10-minute walk from Croyde village centre. If you would like to view the live prices and availability for Ocean Pitch camping or glamping pods, click here.
NOTE: EVERYONE IS WELCOME! You don’t need to camp at Ocean Pitch to enjoy my breakfast & street food.
Everyone is allowed to walk onsite and all I ask is that you respect the campsite when visiting. As it is a small campsite there is NO parking on-site, but you can park at the National Trust which is only a 2-minute walk away.
What’s Cooking, Good Looking?
The reason I created surf-inspired street food is that it allows me to offer a variety of cuisines throughout the season. From beach breaks in Taghazout, Morocco to the cold shores of Shikoku, Japan and let’s not forget the warm waters of Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
I will always offer a simple choice of meat and plant-based options in my breakfast and evening menu.
My ingredients are mostly locally sourced and using local business to support them during these uncertain times. All meals are made on-site by yours truly to offer delicious Croyde street food.
I will ALWAYS have a dairy-free and gluten-free option available. My fryers do not have any ingredients that contain gluten and are gluten free friendly. If you have any other dietary needs or intollerances, drop me a message (Instagram or email) a few days before coming down to ensure you can enjoy my delicious street food.
How Did I Get Here
Biffen’s Kitchen started as a hobby by share recipes on my website to inspire people to find their love of cooking while working in London as a Marketing Manager for a ski company.
I have always been to Croyde with my family since I was 7.
But, after a weekend surf trip to Ocean Pitch in September 2018, my eyes noticed the campsite Snack Shack that would become the start of my new path in life.
After a day of surfing and a few beers that evening with friends, I went to bed thinking of how I could turn my website into a food van in Croyde.
Cook, Surf & Work.
The next morning, I made up my mind.
4 months later, I handed in my notice and prepared myself for my first season in April 2019, to set up the Biffen’s Kitchen food van.
I am not a chef. My skills are nothing to compare to the talented chefs out there but rather I see myself as a cook.
Someone who has a passion for cooking and wants to offer the best of his ability to hungry surfers and campers.
This year I am lucky to have 3 other crazy foodies who want to experience life in a food van by the beach (I don’t blame them).
You will get to meet the Alex, Lottie, Emma and myself on your visits over the week.
