Surge in orders at Hyde Park Book Club after Danny Malin from Rate My Takeaway visits
Hyde Park Book Club has had a huge surge in orders in the last week - after viral sensation Danny Malin from Rate My Takeaway visited to try their food.
Danny, 41, has become a Youtube star recently with his extremely popular 'Rate my takeaway' channel - racking up an astonishing 260,000 subscribers in just a few months.
In his latest video, Danny visited popular Headingley eatery and bar Hyde Park Book Club to try their 'Facon' breakfast.
Setting up his signature table outside, Danny wolfed down the food and gave the takeaway his famous 10/10 approval.
Since then, the Youtube video has racked up hundreds of thousands of views.
Owner of Hyde Park Book Club Jack Simpson, 41, said they have been "non-stop" with a surge in orders after his visit.
Speaking to the YEP, Mr Simpson said they have had to increase their supply to keep up with demand.
He said: "On the day I was pretty relaxed.
"We get a lot of people wanting to come in and do things.
"So I messaged the staff and just said to be ready for someone popping in.
"Then I just started getting texts from them all about who it was.
"He’d been on the One show the night before, and we’ve got a really mixed group of people who come, so maybe made sense as a place to go the day after."
Mr Simpson praised Danny's production team.
He added: "They were so on it, really good guys, friendly and got the film up super quickly afterwards.
"The views were going off from the start, about 100k in two days.
"Since then people have been asking for it loads more.
"We’ve had to up our orders of it."
Mr Simpson told the YEP one of his staff members has had his moment in the spotlight too.
He added: "Jimmy who runs the kitchen and food side was mentioned in the comments with people watching.
"So he has become a bit of a star."
Danny's Youtube channel has spread viral across the globe.
He has become known for setting up his table and chairs outside eateries across the North of England.
Summing up many comments, one viewer said: "Danny is just pure humanity.
"Look how he bring people together just with his kindness.
"How can you not love this bloke?"
