Win grub and drinks for two at GRUB Food Fair, Manchester
Manchester’s GRUB Food Fair has announced the traders for its next six-week residency at hidden Piccadilly brewery, Alphabet Brew Co., featuring the best street chefs in the North and beyond. If you’ve never been to GRUB Food Fair, not only does it feature an ever-changing roster of delicious street food, but also craft beer served fresh from the brewery alongside some of the best DJs operating in the city.
Traders lined up for this run include Andy Low N’ Slow (best BBQ outside of London), Man Dough Co (Current Manchester doughnut sensation), Smak Grill (proper char-grilled kielbasa from Yorkshire), Pollen Bakery (bringing the cruffins that cause queues at their bakery every week), What’s Your Beef (better burgers than any NQ chef), Fritto (peddling deep-fried calzone), Scoop Up (amazing ice cream sandwiches) and many more. Every event is carefully curated to make sure all tastes are catered for and vegans will always be looked after with loads of options across the event.
This isn’t the only good news for vegans either as GRUB is repeating its hugely popular January event, the GRUB ExtraVEGANza, a one-day 100 per cent vegan street food event featuring Gingers Comfort, Fat Annies, Vaso Kitchen, Wallace & Sons and Wholesome Junkies all serving up fantastic scran alongside the best vegan street food trader in the UK right now, Club Mexicana (regular residents of London’s Street Feast).
The next GRUB Food Fair begins March 18 and runs every Saturday between 12pm and 10pm until April 22 . Please be aware the event is often busy so arriving earlier rather than later is advised. You can find GRUB Food Fair at Alphabet Brew Co., 99 N Western Street, M12 6JL. The venue is dog and child friendly until 8pm. The bar takes cards but please bring cash for the food traders.
