Tammy Facey tells us about a new attraction for lunch in the city centre.
Can you hear that? That low grumble. Aching tummies, and empty bellies. Birmingham locals have been hungry for some time now, and the Streetfood Social has been listening. This new event comes to Pigeon Park, from the organisers of BrumYumYum. They’re big, they’re clever, and they’ve rounded up the best streetfood chefs in the Midlands.
If you’ve been to a BYY event, you’ll know they well and truly deliver; vendors are hand-picked, and are put under the microscope; as long as the food packs flavour, it’s in.
Streetfood Social launches this Friday from noon, and it will be a weekly feature. So those who work in the Colmore Business District, on New Street, the shopping vicinity, or even if you’re as far away as Constitution Hill, I’ve no doubt you will hear, if not drink up, the aroma that will be wafting your way. I say hear because there is an audible satisfaction as you take the first bite of whatever you’re eating. At every BYY event, from Wafflespeak, burgers from Ross & Ross, or Big Daddy Hotdogs, which are the glamorised junk- food favourite, they aim to please.
SS seems just what the people of Birmingham need of a lunch time. Some of the food is local, some is organic, but it’s guaranteed, that all of the food is damn good, and worth a try.
Dishes range between £3-5.00, so you’re getting a fair deal, as well as a filling, flavoursome lunch. As a launch weekend special, StreetfoodSocial will take place on both Friday and Saturday from 12 to 5pm. There’s free mulled wine for diners and what the organisers call perfect lunchtime tunes from the BRUM YUM YUM DJs.
