Guerrilla Eats is Manchester’s grassroots street food collective. Run by the dudes behind Fire and Salt BBQ and Dirty Dogs, they’ve hosted a few outings in bad weather – but this weekend’s get-together looks the most promising yet. Running from 6pm this Saturday, there will be music and a bar, plus the majority of stalls will be indoors so you don’t have to suffer for your street food. The location is 60 New Bailey Street, Salford M3 5FS – right opposite Salford Central Station and 5-10 minutes walk from Deansgate. Snacks on offer will include:

Pork and brisket with sides from Fire and Salt BBQ Co
Burritos, nachos and chilli hot chocolate from Margo and Rita
Wood-fired pizza with a selection of toppings from Streatza
Gourmet burgers from Barnhouse Bistro made with 100% rump steak
Traditional Indian street food including samosa chaat, dosa and bel puri from Chaat Cart
Top dogging action (such as the Hot Chihuahua, pictured) from the boys at Dirty Dogs
Sweet and savoury pancakes from Pancake Corner

In other street food news, we hear that MasterChef 2011 finalist Jackie Kearney and her Hungry Gecko operation have set up a permanent street food stall from Friday evening through Sunday at the Beech Inn in Chorlton. Snacks for sale include slobber-inducingly good kimchi noodle soup, paneer shashlik roti wrap (spicy marinated fresh paneer with cachumba salad, coriander chutney and raita) and, our fave, Sloppy Joe Rendang (grass-fed Cheshire beef with coconut and lemongrass, in turmeric roll, served with Asian coleslaw). In fact, you can tuck in to a whole tray of goodies for just £7.50.
