The New Junkyard

The new Junkyard opened its doors to a new concept of street food that will be available all throughout the summer. The idea is that instead of the traditional dining experience where the waiter approaches you and takes the order, you get to walk to the buses scattered around the place to choose your dish. The main outdoor space is basically a big fluid bar in the yard with tables on varying floor levels. When we arrived we got our coupons that can be exchanged for food, with a bracelet for ordering our drinks.

We tried the regular and truffle fries, they are both tasty and crispy (albeit oily) but the truffle fries are a must try with a perfect hint of coriander.
