Street food fans (we’re assuming that’s everyone, right?) will be smacking their lips in excitement at the prospect of a summer full of chances to try a boatload of top notch on-the-go grub.
The Biscuit Factory launches its sunshine-powered series of Artisan Social events THIS AFTERNOON (July 3) with Papa Ganoush bringing their wondrous Eastern Mediterranean tastes to the Ouseburn for the first of these weekly street food pop up treats.
Running from 4pm to 8pm every Wednesday from now until the end of August, the local street food guests will be dishing up everything from Indian and Greek cuisine to vegan American diner style food, and fish and chips with a modern twist.
And as well as feasting on some lovely nosh, visitors can also enjoy summer drinks from Artisan’s bar as well as late night shopping in The Biscuit Factory gallery.
Genuinely, what’s not to make your mouth water right there? But if you need something to get you over the line, here’s the full summer menu:
July 3 – Eastern Mediterranean magicians Papa Ganoush
July 10 – Wood fired pizza wonders Fire and Dough
July 17 – Fresh and traditional Greek food from Phi Pie
July 24 – Fish and chips with a 21st century twist from The Little Fishy
July 31 – An real taste of Mexico from Mexicatessen
August 7 – American diner-inspired delights, vegan style from Grumpy Panda
August 14 – Authentic Punjabi dishes from Tandoori Naan Hut
August 21 – Caribbean flavours aplenty from The Calabash Tree
August 28 – Five time Battle of the Burger winners, Lola Jeans
Rachel Brown, general manager of The Biscuit Factory, says: “Artisan Social is something a little different for us. The concept has been designed to be a laid back, mid-week evening out over the summer.
“Away from the busy city centre, we’re walkable from the Metro and have plenty of free parking, so people can easily drop by after work, take the family out for a quick bite to eat or meet a bunch of pals for drinks. The gallery is open later too, giving visitors the chance to explore our exhibitions out of hours and visit our brand new bookshop with Forum Books.”
Artisan Social forms part of The Biscuit Factory’s summer programme of botanical-themed art, workshops, and food and drink events inspired by the floral artworks of headline artist, Simon M Smith.
