Visit Britain has named BRUM YUM YUM as one of the Top 5 Food Experiences in Birmingham, alongside Michelin starred chefs, Cadbury World and the Balti Triangle.
This Saturday’s instalment of the already-famous #KingshEATh Streetfood Market will see the Moseley based streetfood entrepreneurs celebrate the accolade with a summer special.
BRUM YUM YUM founder, Duncan Stanley says, “We’ve worked so hard to make streetfood happen in Birmingham and to get this kind of recognition really means a lot. So this Saturday we’re partying!”
Since its launch in April, the monthly food & music extravaganza has attracted thousands of visitors & rave reviews from all corners of the foodie community. #KingshEATh is not just a streetfood market; it’s a free urban festival combining high quality food and drink, an eclectic selection of live music and a truly unique atmosphere
Says Stanley, “The focus is on the streetfood, but #KingshEATh isn’t a ‘food fest’. It’s a whole day out and there’s nothing else like it anywhere.
#KingshEATh attracts far more people than most streetfood events, even in London. Food reviewers, bloggers and our customers all tell us that our food is the best they’ve eaten and people keep coming back because we keep the show fresh & interesting.
Because #KingshEATh is so unique and exciting, and Birmingham is so accessible, we attract top streetfood crews from all over the country. We pitch them alongside the best of the Midlands and you have a high quality dining experience that’s totally unique to Birmingham.”
Streetfood is the current food trend and BRUM YUM YUM’s food has propelled them to the forefront of Birmingham’s renowned dining scene.
Duncan Stanley comments, “I read Marco Pierre White saying that people want honest food, food with provenance and dining without pretension. Well we have the most honest, unpretentious food available and we know where all of our ingredients come from, so you know exactly what you’re eating.
BRUM YUM YUM streetfood is the best food in town, hands down. No restaurant can match it because what you see is what you get. And if you want to know more, just ask as you watch it being prepared right in front of you. Our chefs know where every ingredient comes from. They probably raised the porkers in those sausages themselves, but if not they’ll tell you the name of the farm that each little piggy came from. Where else can you get that?
Our menus feature classics done perfectly, with a streetfood edge: The Krispy Kreme Burger, Steak Rossini Baguette, Baby Back Ribs (barbecued in a filing cabinet), Belgian Banoffee Waffles… And exotic dishes, done the BRUM YUM YUM way: Kimbap/Bulgogi (Korean sushi and chargrilled beef in one box), Filipino Sausage, Bombay Burgers, Escargot pots a la Bourguignon.
This is stripped down cuisine, so you’re only getting the good stuff.”
BRUM YUM YUM also produces the innovative and popular #BYYUNDERGROUND dining-clubbing night and will soon open the doors of #clubBYY, billed as ‘the world’s first Streetfood Nightclub’.
BRUM YUM YUM supports ‘Birmingyum’, Visit Birmingham and London Midland’s new tourism campaign and will be holding showcase events across the city, as well as #KingshEATh Christmas Market in December which promises to be an exciting foodie alternative to the German Market.
Saturday will feature 20 of the UK’s top streetfood vendors. Most dishes are in the £3-5 range including snacks and sharing plates, plus there’s a quality bar and live music all day. So for a taste of what Brum Yum Yum streetfood is all about, gather family & friends & head down to #KingshEATh at Kings Heath Village Square this Saturday 10 August, from 12pm for the ‘best day out in Birmingham’.A season of #BYYxmas parties and a streetfood night market for the Jewellery Quarter called #BYYjq are also planned.
