We want to thank our Presenting Partner, Lee Kum Kee, for believing in the first ever USA Street Food Awards!


Lee Kum Kee was established in 1888 when its founder, Mr. Lee Kum Sheung, invented oyster sauce in Nanshui, Zhuhai, Guangdong Province of China. With a glorious history of over a hundred and thirty five years, Lee Kum Kee has become an international household name as well as a symbol of quality and trust.

We are so excited to announce that in addition to being our Presenting Partner, Lee Kum Kee is sponsoring a special Lee Kum KEE FLAVOR award open to all participants in our 2023/2024 contests. A prize will be awarded to the participant who creates the most flavorful dish using a Lee Kum Kee sauce. Stay tuned for more!

Who Are We

Who We Are

The Street Food Awards are the premier competition for mobile food vendors around the world. From Ludlow and Malmö to Berlin and Portland, our connections to local communities help us to bring the finest foods anywhere to foodies everywhere. Our events are the stuff of gourmet legend: renowned street food vendors, hungry up-and-comers, peerless provisions, and food figureheads come together in celebration of good eats. Only seeing - and tasting - is believing.


In thirteen years, we've connected thousands of vendors with passionate patrons. For the British and European Street Food Awards alike, each new event promises to be our biggest yet. In 2023, Food Mutiny is taking this momentum stateside, where the street eats of the world’s melting pot will finally assume the spotlight.


The first USA Street Food Awards are the can’t-miss food events of the year. The festivities kick off in Los Angeles, where we've joined the LA Auto Show to present a weekend of mouthwatering culinary creations, exhilarating competition, and high-spirited community. That's November 18th and 19th - be there.


Things only get sweeter: all proceeds from this year’s events go to benefit the environmental efforts of The Wave Foundation. We’re about eating good and doing good all at once.


Join our contact list to stay tuned to our search for American champions and find an event in your are. To get in on the excitement - featuring food, drink, live music, and celebrity sightings - secure your tickets for our next stop. To step on to the stage and showcase your skills, register to become a vendor partner, and we'll get you in the mix.
