I’ve been passionate about street food in England for years now so it’s so nice to see it coming to Birmingham and so many people working together to make it happen and support each other.
Digbeth Dining Club has been running for a few months now but I only made it up last night to see what all the hype was about. We got there to the court yard which each week has three different street food traders sell their delicious food to like minded foodies and people who like and appreciate good food. There are benches to sit with heaters and cover, then there is a bar which used to be an old warehouse, the vibe is very relaxed with the dj spinning chilled instramental beats and laid back hiphop tracks. There are a selection of beers on draft, spirits, wine and cocktails as you sit on a sofa eating some of the best street food around. The lighting is low and its got a certain ambiance that excites me.
Last night the traders were:
The Mexican Bean guys who sell mexican flavours.
I had the nachos supreme which was their slow cooked shredded beef that was out of this world, the beef was so tender and flavoursome, the cheese was delicious and the hot salsa really complemented everything alongside the guacamole and chipotle sauce, if you think you have had ‘nachos’ before, trust me you haven’t until you have had The mexican bean nachos. Cant wait to work my way through the rest of the menu over the next few months.
For all details of these lovely people make sure you follow them on twitter and add them up on facebook.
Jabberwocky serving up gourmet toasties.
I’d read their menu earlier in the day and got quite excited at the thought of their smoked pigeon breast, Red Leicester, spring onions and redcurrant sauce toastie, I’ve wanted to try pigeon for ages so this was first on my list, again the guys are a lovely couple really friendly and talkative with real passion for food. The pigeon was smoked by themselves and was perfect, a mild smoke flavour which was just right, didn’t dominate but was there, the strong red leicester cheese was delish when melted then the slight edge of the spring onion really set it off, such a great original idea for a toastie i cant wait to try what they do next!
Again make sure you follow and support what these guys are doing here.
Original Patty Men serving THE best burgers in town for sure.
As I had eaten at all the other stalls I had to try these amazing looking burgers from these guys. Again i had seen the menu earlier in the day and been a big burger fan i had to try their original patty with cheese. The burger was mouth wateringly delicious, the bun sweet and soft with the beautiful beef patty that is a real treat alongside the melted cheese, onions, mustard and sauce, this is the best I’ve had, i find a lot of burgers are greasy and the patty is rubbish quality this ticks all the box’s for me and again cant wait to try their other creations. The krispy kreme as a bun is calling out to be tried
Make sure you get down to Digbeth and try all of this amazing food for yourselves trust me you won’t be disappointed, hopefully some time in the future when I have my van up and running you will see me at one of these events, until then, I’ll support these guys and make myself fat in the process hehe.
