This weekend, a collective of Manchester’s most exciting street food vendors join forces to host a foodie market that nods to the greats in San Francisco and Portland – cities where simple, flavoursome street food is just a way of life. One of the founding members of Guerrilla Eats is the secretive Mangechester blogger, the brains behind the Fire and Salt BBQ Co who will be serving his slow-cooked brisket this weekend. What kick-started his barbecue and street food obsession was a tour of Texan pit barbecue joints. Out in the sticks, he found meat – what we’d call cheap cuts of meat, like brisket and ribs – oozing with flavour as a result of their slow, pit cooking. The result is a unique dining experience that is rare to find in the UK outside of London’s Pitt Cue Co. Others to watch this weekends include Dirty Dogs hot dogs, which are so delicious you won’t be walking them for long, gourmet burgers courtesy of Barnhouse Bistro, We like the sound of Chaat Cart‘s traditional Indian veggie street food too, and Free Shake Co. from Chorlton, who specialise in Diary-free milkshakes.
