Here Are The 10 Best Food Stalls To Check Out At Electric Picnic This Weekend

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

The biggest festival of the year is just around the corner.

You’ve probably spent the last few days choosing your outfits, heading to Boots to pick up the last few toiletries, chosen your campsite and rooted your wellies out of a dusty corner.

Have you thought about the food sitch, though?

Every year, Leccy Piccy, as I call it, knocks it out of the park when it comes to food options. It’s a deadly place to meet food vendors first hand and also try something a little out of your comfort zone.

Here are some of my top picks to try during the festivities:

1. Avo Nice Day

If you haven’t guessed by the title already, this stunning lil foodie company creates healthy, delicious, avocado inspired recipes.

Dishes include deep-fried avocado rolls, avo on toast and avo spread. It all looks insane!

To help settle that post-session belly, they also have Kombucha on tap. This honestly sounds like my dream food stall.

2. Saba

One of my greatest moments of EP last year was getting my hands on a spice bag after a very rainy night and warming myself up.

As well as Ireland’s fave takeaway dish, they also have a rake of delish curries, noodles and stir-fries to warm up those sniffly noses.

That stuff is magic.

3. Box Burger

You need that soakage for the rake of pints you’ll be having this weekend and a burger is a great option. It’ll fill you up for the day, it’s easy to hold and consume as you boogie through the crowds and it’s super tasty.

Box Burger are burger champs – try their PBJ if you want to mix things up a little, you won’t regret it.

4. Kerala Kitchen

There’s something about festivals that always has me hankering for a good curry.

Last year I made a beeline for Kerala Kitchen when I saw chicken tikka on the menu; an old reliable and a hearty dish that’s sure to put a smile on your face.

5. Dublin Pizza Company

Many a time I’ve woken up in my campsite and the first thing that hits me is the waft of fresh pizza dough from Dublin Pizza Company.

You’ll often find these guys in the campsites and they always sort you right out when you get that afternoon slump and need a pick-me-up.


6. Pacheco

Pacheco is a Venezuelan street food stall that must be tried.

Usually based in Merrion Square Food Markets on a Thursday, I have to say, it was love at first bite for me. They serve up an array of tasty bites including arepas, yuca fries and empanadas.


Indian street food at its best.

There’s honestly nothing I crave more at a festival than a curry with some naan bread.

Gimme it all.

8. La La Poutine

This is the ultimate drunk food.

Gravy, chips and balls of cheese?

We’ll take 3.

9. The Pieman

Ah, nothing to beat the predicted showers like a piping hot pie from the pieman.

Now try say “Piping hot pie from the Pieman” five times really quickly…

10. Wok N’ Roll

No festival is complete without a trip to Wok N’ Roll for a noodle box.

Legend has it, if you go up to the stall and sing “WE BUILT THIS CITY ON WOK N ROLL” they’ll give you a free meal…

(This is definitely a lie)

Add these to your bucket list for the weekend, you won’t be disappointed!
