Leeds is being taken over, just for the weekend, by our Manchester mates in a one-off Eat North special.

The weekly street food fair, which has taken the city by storm as a result of the Leeds Indie Food Fest earlier this year, is welcoming some of Manchester’s finest street food traders and Manc beers.

Saturday will see What the Truck? serve up American classics and Sunday will be all about authentic Quebec-style poutine from the British Street Food Awards 2017 Finalist, The Blue Caribou Canteen.

Both Saturday and Sunday will host other notable Manchester traders such as Wrapscallion (tasty burritos), Mac Daddies (mac and cheese dishes), Vaso Kitchen (homemade Indian street food), Ginger’s Comfort Emporium (artisan ice cream) and EatNorth favourite, Rabbit Hole Travelling Coffee Shop (coffee and espresso martinis).

Matt Dix, festival director said: “We thought it was only right to step things up a little. Leeds Beer Week seemed just the right excuse. Manchester has a killer street food and beer scene, and a great independent vibe, so we thought we’d invite all our friends over the Pennines so EatNorth can try something new for our first ever two-day event.”
