We have very exciting news! On Saturday 18th February we are hosting our first pop-up restaurant event at We Connect! Local micro-bakery Toast will be taking over We Connect for one night only, bringing you a delicious, vegan spin on a Chilean classic.
We're inviting you to join us for what promises to be a sensationally tasty first pop-up experience!
Who are Toast?
Toast are a husband and wife team, Gaby and Marcus. They live in Cwmfelinfach after moving from Essex in January 2020 and settling in the beautiful Sirhowy Valley.
Gaby and Marcus work out of their garden in Cwmfelinfach. We asked them to explain the Toast concept to us:
The idea for Toast was born from a love and fascination with sourdough baking and a passion for our community. Here at Toast we focus on what is really important to us, making good quality, organic and vegan food that has no compromise on taste whilst remaining affordable.
RCV UK are absolutely thrilled that the Toast Team have agreed to be our first pop-up event. Gaby and Marcus are both RCV UK volunteers, actually giving up their very busy time to help decorate We Connect when we first opened so it's a wonderful celebration of our first anniversary that they have agreed to do this pop-up event.
What will be on Offer?
The pop up will be serving up a Chilean street food classic Completos! Be prepared to get very messy with this loaded hot dog treat! Want to know more about the Completos? The Toast team can explain:
Completos is a Chilean hot dog that can be found all over the country, having roots in Chile and family still over there food is a huge connector and a major way in which I connect with my culture, It's a vegan hot dog in a soft steamed (homemade Toast) bun, topped with smashed avocado, tomato salsa, green salsa. Then to top it off a drizzle of Chilean aji, mustard, mayo & ketchup, is most definitely meant to be a combination of devilishly delicious and the messiest munch possible.
Doesn't that just sound and look amazing! The RCV marketing team have been lucky enough to try one and the resounding feedback was that there was disbelief it could be vegan.
We asked them why Completos was the choice for the pop-up and it has a special meaning for them:
Completos is the first pop-up Marcus and I did together, so it holds a special place in our hearts. We have wanted to bring it to Wales ever since we arrived, and to be able to collaborate with RCV is the perfect option to introduce it.
