What is Happening to UK Street Food

Over the summer I was fortunate enough to be attending many of the foodie festivals and I was excited for the range of street food you tend to get at such events. Armed with the British summer essentials, a rain coat and outdoor boots of course, I traveled the UK foodie scene from Sausage & Beer Festivals to the Smokey BBQ Feasts where I was more often than not welcomed my the aroma of delicious street food and the sound of live music.

After getting a refreshment from one of the many beer tents I would then investigate what there was on offer. In most instances the venues were very pleasant regardless of the weather. With the vast quantity of drink tents and street food stands there was certainly no lack of choice, however working my way around the various food stands across the festivals I came to an unsettling conclusion. It had come to my attention that many UK street food stands are becoming lazy and unimaginative. Although there were often upwards of 30 food & drink venders only a handful managed to achieved what I would classify as good quality street food.

Some of the few food stands that were successful in achieving great quality food while on my adventure were Burgers And Beyond at The Sausage & Beer Festival at Jimmy’s Farm, Fu Schnikens at The Blegrave Music Hall in Leeds & Dogtown in London. These guys are just a few of the street food businesses that are maintaining the standards of which all street food should be.

Street Food

The reason that the quality of street food has declined can’t even be down to the fact the market is over saturated with the same type of foods. Take Burger And Beyond for example. My first thoughts were that they wer lacking imagination, a menu consisting of a selection of burgers, always risking in such a common choose of street food. Yet to my delight they pulled it off. I love everything about Burgers And Beyond. The burgers are juicy, exploding with flavour and leaves you yearning for more. The staff where full of life and even on a rainy day they uplifted customers dampened spirits with delightful food and their jubilant service. This just goes to show that great street food does exist even if it’s a products that’s been done before.

Burger-and-Beyond

Unfortunately many of the other street food venders present at UK festivals this summer didn’t fare too well. Don’t mistake my criticism of the food stand as me suggesting their food was bad or unpleasant, I am purely making the obviation that in todays street food scene there is a lack of innovation, imagination and great tasting food. I fear that street food is being abused by many that think its easy to do, that think they can run it like the BBQ they have in their back garden, which ultimately results in food that tastes just as bland and boring as your uncles burnt bangers.

I believe that the handful of street food businesses that are successful in producing the extraordinary such as Burger And Beyone, Fu Schnikens and Dogtown would all agree with me when I say you can not just decide to start a street food business just because you fancy doing it. You have to have a real passion for the food and make something your proud to serve others, something you get excited thinking about. Those without that passion couldn’t possibly produce anything worthy.

I hope that the street food “Boom” haven’t started its decline after its strong rise into our society. It would be a great shame as I strongly believe that there are still many more imaginative and delicious dishes to come out of this amazing food scene.

Pinche Pinche Mexican Restaurant

Chapel Allerton is a wonderful area of Leeds for anyone looking for bars and restaurants with the right atmosphere and great food. Right in the centre of the action sits a Mexican restaurant with a grand reputation, Pinche Pinche. Not knowing anything of this illustrious restaurant I was excited to see whether it would live up to the hype from food blogs and social media.

I booked my reservation at Pinche Pinche on a Friday night when the restaurant was fully booked, the atmosphere was welcoming and warming on what was a very cold January evening. The staff didn’t seem phased by working a full restaurant and still managed to make each guest feel welcome and tended to. Although there was a little wait for our table at the start of the evening we were welcomed over to the bar area for a drink and to look through the menu. The menu gave plenty of choice offering tapas as well as main meals, so it would only be fair to try both. I ordered the Spicy Cheese Balls, Sopa Azteca, Cactus Tlacoyos and the Fish Tacos from the Tapas section, the Pork Burrito from the Bigger Plates section and on the side I ordered the Refried Black Beans and the Latin American Super Food Salad.Pinche Pinche Pillow

After a while the food arrived and if it were to taste as good as it looked, then I was in for a treat. The Spicy Cheese Balls had a lovely crisp ground tortilla coating with soft creamy cheese in the centre topped with spicy salsa and guacamole. The Fish Tacos stole the show with the great tasting flakey fish accompanied with a garnish of salad and an amazing taco sauce. The only shames was we only ordered one serving.

The Pork Burrito lived up to its status in the “Larger Dishes” section of the menu. The burrito was stuffed to the brim with succulent pulled pork, pancetta, sweet figs, rich mature cheddar, black beans and the most delicious creamy avocado salsa, all served on crispy tortilla strips and toped with softened Mexican pink onions.

The Sopa Azteca is a dish I have never tried nor heard off. Its a tomato and pasilla chilli soup served with fresh avocado, tortilla strips, Oaxacan cheese and chicken. The soup was full of taste and spice that was perfectly complemented by the avocado and the Oaxcan cheese that I found similar to unaged Monterey Jack, but with the string like cheese texture of mozzarella. The Chicken was an optional extra but don’t think it was necessary for this dish as it carried itself well without.

The Cactus Tlacoyos were cactus leaves and avocado served on black bean maize flatbreads. I was hopping for a new flavour as I have never tasted cactus but I found it to taste mush like green bell peppers but nonetheless was very pleasant.

Assessing the menu I found that Pinche Pinche offers a wide choice for all tastes as well as catering for vegetarians and gluten free diets. From the dishes I ordered I found the food was full of flavours that work together well and left me more than satisfied. You get the feel that the menu has been thought out very carefully which positions itself leagues ahead of other Mexican / Tex Mex restaurants I have dined at in the past. The staff were friendly and helpful and did not seem rushed nor stressed at working a full restaurant on a Friday night. Pinche Pinche gets my overall approval and I will and have recommended this restaurant to anyone looking for an evening meal in a buzzy, friendly atmosphere and great food at good value.

Is Kim Jong Un opening a restaurant in Scotland?

kim-jong-un-Scottland

Like many, I rarely find myself craving dog meat soup or a bottled aphrodisiac allegedly made from bears however, Good Food Nation are proud to cater to everyones taste however bonkers. There are reports that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un could be opening a restaurant in Scotland and serving such delicacies.

Scotland has sparked the interest of the North Korean elite’s since The Scottish independence referendum. Despite Scotland voting ‘No’ The North Koreans consider left-leaning Scotland to be more fitting to deal with than England and supported the call for Scottish Independence. Many believe this is what has lead to the decision of the latest location of the “Pyongyang” restaurant.

The first of the restaurants Pyongyang were build near the boarder with China with Kim Jong Un’s expansion plans resulting in openings in Amsterdam in 2012. This was later closed down but re-opened under that name “Haedanghwa”.

Pyongyang restaurants are renowned for the luxurious and expensive experience. The opening in Scotland was very surprising and despite Kim Jong Un’s love of cheese and whisky, Hoare was a must unexpected choice of location.

Scottish food can be considered as very conservative so it may not be the obvious place to dine. It is reported that is not aimed towards the Korean population nor is it targeted to the Scottish people, they claim it is for the wealthy foreigners that want to come and spend money. Maybe they would have been wiser to choose a location more of the likes of London.

Twisted Burger Company at Jake’s Bar – Review

Title ImageAfter being invited to review the Twisted Burger Company at their residency at Jake’s Bar Leeds we were highly anticipating new menu items from our last experience at their last residency. Jake’s Bar itself was a lively venue with a great atmosphere, the perfect setting to try some new burgers & interesting sides. Cocktail MenuBefore indulging on burgers & fries it would be considered a shame not to sample the infamous cocktails of Jake’s Bar. With a Strawberry Daiquiri & an Old Fashioned. The Strawberry Daiquiri was fresh with a good hint of sourness & definitely more-ish. The Old Fashioned smooth & warming just as this classic cocktail should be.

MenuAfter assessing the menu we were glad to see many additions to the menu for a taste of variety. The Limp Brizket & The Drop Dead Double Stuffed Falaf-Hell Burger jumped out & took my fancy. This would give the review a wider scope & allow us to share our enthusiasm of burgers to meat eaters & vegetarians alike. Our burgers will be accompanies by the Cajun Marinated Corn & the Macho Manchego Fries.

Twisted BurgersThe Drop Dead Double Stuffed Falaf-Hell Burger was a full on flavour punch. Each ingredient came through with good flavour, however the texture could have benefited from some diversity. Some crispy fried onion or fresh crunchy salad may have pushed the burger to new heights. The flavour of the Techno Burger Sauce in The Limp Brizket was very strong & unfortunately overpowered the taste of the meat & French Onion Jam. For meat lovers this could come as a slight disappointment. The Cajun Marinated Corn delivered a lovely kick of flavour & a great twist to the classic corn on the cob. The Macho Manchego Fries is a dish worth ordering with a healthy portion of beef brisket smothered in sauce & gravy.

Overall the food was plesent & the cocktails very refreshing. The bar was welcoming & had a great atmosphere, I would have no hesitation in visiting again or reommending for evening drinks. Unfortunately there are aspects of the food that need addressing, nevertheless the majority of the food was pleasant. My recommendations would be to take advantage of the cocktails at Jake’s bar & a couple of side orders to share among friends however there are better places to indulge on burgers.

Almost Famous Coming to Leeds

Badaboom

A restaurant not suited to its name as Almost Famous is well known as the mecca or burgers in the north. Almost Famous currently have two restaurants in Manchester as well as one in Liverpool & now they are answering the prayers of the residence of Leeds. They have been dishing up jaw-dropping burgers for a while and have made a strong name for themselves but state that this Leeds restaurant will be their naughtiest most mischievous adventure yet!

With plans to open by the end of the summer on George Street next to Nation of Shopkeepers they will be joining the many burger joints that have opened i Leeds over the years however, they may just bring that quirky & redial touch they are so famous for that is missing in so many of the existing burger eateries. With the level of success and popularity in both Manchester & Liverpool we have no doubt that Almost Famous with thrive in Leeds.

Many people are excited & we’re anticipating Almost Famous to be the talk of the town even long after they open. The best of luck to they new opening & looking forward to it!

Beef & Pudding – Manchester

Beef & Pudding

I have been waiting for an excuse to be in Manchester to visit Beef & Pudding however since its opening early April I haven’t found myself in Manchester at for an appropriate occasion. With life reluctant in giving me opportunities to visit, I decided to make the trip for the soul purpose of dinning at this New Moon Pub.

Upon arrival my first observation was the look and feel, with a slightly stripped back look with plenty of wood and metal you got an idea of the type of restaurant you were in right away. This theme of design has become more and more popular in the dinning scene however Beef & Pudding have tweaked it to make it their own.

Straight away from being welcomed and seated it was evident that the staff were friendly, welcoming and competent. Our host shared with us the specials menu and regretted to inform us that they were out of the most popular dish “The Pudding“. Slightly disappointed that I would not be able to try their signature dish however the menu was divers and plentiful with remarkable sounding British and unique dishes. The wine list gave a great selection of wines and understandably many were sold by the bottle only. Unfortunately we were only able to buy by the glass due to driving however we very much enjoyed the “2012 Granfort Merlot“.

We decided to start the evening off with the “Artisan bread selection with oil & balsamic“. The breads were soft and pleasant and they used extra virgin rapeseed oil and a some sort of balsamic glaze for dipping rather then the typical olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The rapeseed oil tasted fresh and worked well with the sweet tanginess of the balsamic.

For mains I was infatuated by the special that resembled “The Big Boner” found on the Dirty Food Thursday Menu however, this fore rib of beef was served with skinny fries and a blue cheese sauce. We also ordered the “Lamb Breast, Pumpkin & Honey Salad” from the main menu consisting of crispy lamb breast, roasted pumpkin, Bax’s Knutsford honey & toasted cumin raita.

Crispy Lamb Breast Salad

The fore rib of beef served with the blue cheese sauce was cooked to perfection, the meat was succulent and bursting with flavour. Not a single bit of this under appreciated cut of meat was tough or chewy, the meat was tender and the fat melted in your mouth. Over all a beautifully cooked fore rib of beef. The blue cheese sauce that accompanied the beef had the perfect balance of taste, it didn’t over power the flavour of the meat but was strong enough to fully enjoy.

The crispy lamb salad held all the depth of flavours, with the sweetness from the honey and the slight ethnicity from the cumin this salad was a great way to have a taste of the once great empire. The salad was flavoursome, fresh and satisfying without the feeling of guilt afterwards, just what a salad should be!

For desert we ordered “A Real Sticky Toffee Pudding” and the “Jam-Jar Lemon Cheesecake” with an Eton Mess top. The pudding was moist, the toffee sauce was sweet and delicious and the vanilla ice-cream was creamy and the combination amounted to a tremendous flavour. The cheesecake was a nice idea but I felt that it confused the tastebuds to much, I wasn’t sure whether I was eating a lemon cheesecake or a red berry cheesecake. The dish was very pleasant however I feel that some of the dimensions were lost through to having two very powerful flavours competing.

From first impressions of the menu some may consider it being slightly on the pricy side, now I have had the chance to experience the quality of the food and the size of the dishes I have no doubt that The Beef & Pudding is great value. The food was amazing and full of flavour, you get the feeling the meals were cooked and prepared with pride and compassion. The front of house staff also display a degree of passion in what they do and where they work. Our waiters were friendly and helpful and the overall service was flawless. Beef & Pudding gets my overall approval & is perfect for anyone looking for an informal and relaxing atmosphere with great food at good value.

Dawn Of The Dog

It is widely accepted that burgers are the “in thing” and have been growing in popularity over the last 3 years. Burgers have become a major trend in the UK and like many trends to reach our shored much of the inspiration has come from our oversea friends in American. London’s Best Burger has seen the evolution of burgers in the heart of the Capital. When we asked London’s Best Burger why they think the popularity of burgers has grown in the last 5 years they replied “Burgers, bring people together“.

BqBFM6CIYAAQ42OThe England’s Best Burger 2014 creator Ollie Anstee states that “the growth in popularity of burgers and the whole “Low n Slow” BBQ thing in the UK is absolutely fantastic. Long may it continue!

Although burgers are at the peek of their popularity with multiple new burger restaurants opening every year in every city in the UK, the latest trend to make its debut appearance on our shores is the new concept of hot dogs! Splendid Sausage Co. from Manchester are at the forefront of the hotdog movement and when we got in touch with them to discuss the increase in hot dogs popularity over the past 3-5 years and how the hot dog has changed or evolved within the UK they were happy to give their views.

1. “The Dog”

The hot dog has always been much more of an American than British food, a staple of backyard BBQs and county fairs. A 4th July tradition. While we have embraced the burger we’ve taken a little more time to warm to the hot dog. Looking back when people think hot dog, they think of a tough tube filled with the pieces of meat the butcher couldn’t use anywhere else. Arseholes and eyelids if you will. Thankfully perceptions are changing and people are beginning to see a hot dog as a viable alternative to a burger. They’re no longer the cheap wiener you’d get out of a can, they’re no longer so processed they can sit unrefrigerated on supermarket shelves for months on end. They’re made with love and care with prime cuts of meat in natural rather than artificial casings with great texture and subtle flavours. The meat content is high and if cooked correctly – slightly slowly over a low to medium heat with a bit of care and attention – then all the juices, all the goodness will stay right there within the casing, none of it is lost in the cooking process meaning the flavour you can get from even a plain sausage can be explosive. Once you add complimentary or contrasting toppings to this then, like with a burger, you can end up with a great tasting dish.

2. “The Toppings”

At a BBQ I’ve always chosen the sausage in a bun over the burger, yet have always loved what people do with burgers, the innovative toppings and sauces. Look at some of the burger creations we regularly see from Almost Famous and Solita, five years ago you’d be lucky to get an extra piece of cheese or bacon, maybe some pineapple or avocado if the place was feeling adventurous. Now they have everything on them, from flat iron steak and bacon three ways to soft shell crab and monster munch yet the hot dog until recently has been left by the wayside, a few onions, maybe a bit of chilli if you’re lucky, but things are changing, people are realising the dog is right up there with the burger, so much can be done with them.

3. “The Possibilities”

When we set up The Splendid Sausage Company we wanted to push the evolution of the hot dog even further. The Great British banger has been around for centuries and is a wonderful food. There is so much you can do with it, almost every type of meat works as a sausage, there are so many flavours you can use to further enhance them within the sausage, before you even come to the toppings. We love that we can use the flavours of different sausages with different toppings, it makes for something so much more exciting. For one of our dogs we take a beef and horseradish sausage, topped with a heap of slow braised beef pulled down into gravy, red cabbage, cauliflower cheese, mini roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings and even more gravy. It makes a perfect Sunday dinner.

4. “A Splendid Sausage”

We use slightly thinner than usual sausages, specially made in lamb rather than sheep casings, it means we can cook the sausage from scratch much quicker (as with a butcher’s sausage you can’t leave them rolling about on the grill top or sat in a bain marie as you can with the pre smoked dogs that you usually get on hotdogs) yet with the length of them we still get as much, if not more, meat than most burgers around. It also means we can play with the flavours within the sausage itself which is where I think the hot dog will go in the future. Yes there will always be fans of the traditional pre smoked wiener dogs but more and more people will see what can be done with the sausage, similar to but of a much higher quality than the one they’ve been eating since they were kids, a hot dog bun and some innovative toppings and it might not be too long before the hot dog is nipping on the coat tails of the all conquering burger.

Darvish – Leeds

  Darvish Restaurant

Traditional Persian Tea House & Restaurant

This particular restaurant has actually been a much anticipated occasion for me. I have received recommendations from many friends as well as seeing the restaurant on the television presented by Jamie Oliver. We arrived on a weekday evening to a brilliantly styled traditional Persian restaurant where we received a very warm welcome from the staff. The restaurant runs a bring-your-own-booze policy however they do supply a few red wines as well as the usual soft drinks but nothing too fancy. This simplicity helped focus the attention on the décor and feel of the restaurant, it felt very traditional.

Design

After looking through the menu I was enticed by most of what was to offer, for starters we ordered the Dolmeh Barg Mow which were grape vine leaves stuffed with ground lamb, rice, tarragon, slit peas and a mix of fresh herbs. Also the Kashke Bademjan was ordered which consisted of fried aubergines, walnuts, onion, garlic spices and the Darvish special sauce. The Dolmeh Barg Mow was lovely and it was the first time I have had it served hot, this really helped the flavours manifest and bring out their true properties.  The Kashke Bademjan had a strong flavour of the aubergine and walnuts and I imagine that this dish would really appeal to those who have a taste for Persian cuisine, I loved it and felt like I was given a real taste of traditional Persian food.

Starters

From experience, places like this that offer a set menu or a sharing menu for the mains provide great value and the opportunity to try many aspects of the cuisine and specialties. We decided to get the Chello Kabab Darvish that was recommended to serve 2 people. This was a selection of kababs with 2 saffron rice dishes, a naan bread and a portion of salad. This dish arrived and I was instantly amazed with the quantity that was served. This huge plate of meat kababs to share with a whole plate of rice each and a salad. Quality was not sacrificed for quantity, the meat was juicy and flavoursome, each kabab tasting distinctly different but equally as good as the rest. The rice and salad were simple but allowed the focus to be on the flavours cooked into the meat dishes.

Mains

This type of food is well recognised as being a traditionally Middle Eastern but also found in places such as Balkans, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia. With the Britain being such a multi cultural country places like this are able to thrive. My experience here was memorable due to the gorgeous food, the traditional feel and the brilliant service. This restaurant opens you’re eyes to their culture through food.

I recommend Darvish to everybody and is a great place to go with a group of friend as there is plenty to go around with the sharing dishes. The Food was delicious and very traditional, the service was ace with no long waits and very attentive staff, the atmosphere was quiet but this is to be expected on a weekday evening however it was not uncomfortable and felt very homely, finally the whole experience was great value at £30 for two starters and a large sharing main. I wish more people new about this hidden gem and will be making  return visit again very soon!

Splendid Sausage Co. – Manchester

b2a6dfdce82230608c66667497418565

A good hot dog goes a long way and a great hot dog will make your day! While in Manchester I thought it rude to visit without trying a Splendid Sausage Co. hot dog as they have only been open a few weeks and I have been hearing some ‘Splendid’ things about them.

The menu was up in the window for any passer-by-ers to have a look and immediately I was in suspense to what these creations would taste like. The combos showed some true imagination without being too radical.

Menu

The Dogs that stood out from the rest were The King, The J.Y.D and The Danger Dog. The King arrived and was as crazy as it sounds, a beef hot dog topped with bacon, bacon bits banana fritters, mustard and peanut butter powder! This collection of flavours was unique and the flavours worked together brilliantly. The J.Y.D was another success story of a hot dog. This pork and herb sausage was accompanied with chilli, bacon, fried onion, sauerkraut topped with three cheeses and chicken bites. This hot dog was full of flavour and very satisfying. The flavours were less extreme in comparison to other hot dogs served but the flavours were done right. The final dog was The Danger Dog, this spice pork dog was served with bacon, fried onions, three cheeses and to add the spice it was garnished with jalapeños, jalapeños pretzel pieces and the Splendid Sausage Co.’s very own hot sauce. This dog would put hairs on your chest and warmth in your heart, it was a great tasting dog with a kick to bring you back to reality. All three of these hot dogs were truly Splendid.

all the food

Now you can’t go out for a dirty dog without trying some of the funky sides. The Buffalo Chicken Bites were tangy and tasty. The meat was moist and the flavour was strong. The Bacon, Buffalo & Blue Fries were a delight. It could be fair to say that this side of fries is on par with the best sides tasted here on Good Food Nation. The three toppings complimented each other well while giving a full flavour sensation. Finally The Splendid Fries were a real soul pleaser. Everyone loves fries and gravy but when they are accompanied with sausage pieces and bacon there isn’t much that you could complain about.

Over all this experience was wonderful as the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable, the staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. The best thing about this joint is that the price was equally was pleasant. At £8 on average for a combo hot dog, this is truly a tribute to american hot dogs without paying for the novelty like you may find in many other restaurants of this style. The only negative point to be made was the atmosphere, while there there was only one other table eating there however this to be expected for a restaurant that has only recently opened. I hope that this restaurant gets the popularity it deserves in good time.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone board of the plain hot dogs usually found around the UK and anyone else who just fancies a good chow-down on some good flavour.
