Guerrilla Eats – Xmas Beer Bash 2014, Ancoats, Manchester

Guerrilla Eats – Xmas Beer Bash 2014, Ancoats, Manchester

‘Twas the (last Friday) night before Christmas and Manchester street food pioneers Guerrilla Eats were throwing a party at their semi-permanent home on Blossom Street. Combining two of the things I love most, street food and craft beer. The beer list was impressive; with twenty lines – of both keg and cask beers – from great local breweries such as Quantum and ...

Viet Shack, Manchester Arndale – The Best Value Lunch In Town?

Viet Shack, Manchester Arndale – The Best Value Lunch In Town?

I realised recently that compared to previous years i’ve hardly eaten in any ‘fine-dining’ restaurants so far in 2014. As much as I still enjoy refined French food and good wine with fancy silver service I often have the feeling of ‘been there, done that’, they just don’t excite me as much as they once did. It’s partly fatigue from over ... Read More »

Moretti Gran Tour, Old Granada Studios, Manchester – A Celebration of Italian Street Food

Moretti Gran Tour, Old Granada Studios, Manchester – A Celebration of Italian Street Food

Since having my first ‘Pizza Pilgrims’ at Street Feast London in May i’ve been plotting a return to get another fix. Last week something wonderful happened; Pizza Pilgrims came to me! And they even brought some friends with them. ‘Moretti Gran Tour’ was an event run by Italian brewing company Birra Moretti to celebrate authentic Italian food, featuring some of London’s ...

Street Feast, Dalston Yard, London – Proper, EPIC Street Food

Street Feast, Dalston Yard, London – Proper, EPIC Street Food

I’ve really enjoyed the surge in Manchester’s street food scene lately but on a recent London trip I realised it’s still got a long way to go. After spending the day eating my way through a variety of the capital’s street food offerings I was genuinely surprised at how good it was. Starting with Borough Market, London’s most renowned food market ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 10 (09/04/2014)

They say time flies when you’re having fun. Friday nights have certainly been flying by since B.Eat Street started running their ‘Friday Food Fight’ events at Upper Campfield Market. Amazingly last week was the tenth and there are now just two remaining! It was my sixth time (plus the ‘Cook Off’) and just as much fun as ever. First stop, Flavours ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 07 (18/04/2014) – Kendal Calling Official Manchester Launch Party!

It’s always a good Friday at B.eat Street’s ‘Friday Food Fight‘ but for episode 07 it actually was Good Friday! What better way to commemorate Jesus’ crucifixion than with amazing street food? Not only was it a four day weekend but the weather was stunning too, Manchester was looking fabulous in the sun. The Beetham Tower opposite Upper Campfield market – the home ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 06 (11/04/2014)

Friday Food Fight is all about good food, good music & good drinks, you know the score by now i’m sure (but see here if you really don’t). I wasn’t actually planning on eating at EP06 since i’d been to BrewDog for their Honest Burgers popup, but after missing out of EP05 the previous week couldn’t resist it, especially as I ...

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 04 (28/03/2014)

After attending EP 01 & 02 of Friday Food Fight but missing EP03 I was determined to make it to EP 04 last week, despite the fact I already had plans for the evening. The great thing about the event is you can come and go as you please, stay as long as you like and eat as much or ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 02 (14/03/2014)

Having enjoyed the first Friday Food Fight so much I couldn’t wait to return the following week  to eat my way through a completely new line up. This time everything ran smoothly from the start and with no power problems we walked straight in. The venue was just as impressive as I remembered and there was already a great buzz ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 01 (07/03/2014)

It’s a few years ago now, but I’ve spent many Friday nights in warehouse like buildings with DJs playing dance music. Back then it was all about the music but yesterday at the inaugural Friday Food Night I got that same buzz I used to from clubbing only this time it was all about the food. I’d been looking forward ... Read More »
