Restaurant Talk Issue 9

Posted on 26/10/2021

Our October edition of Restaurant Talk is here and we're feeling festive! Halloween is nearly upon us and Christmas won't be long so how are restaurants marking the party season this time around?

Celebrate Day of the Dead at Wahaca

Tis the season to get spooky, so Wahaca are celebrating Mexican-style of course by decorating all their venues and serving traditional Dia de los Muertos food and drink between 26th October and 8th November.

Hallowe'en High Tea

We've spotted loads of venues across the UK offering special Halloween-themed afternoon teas with Pumpkin pies, ghoulish desserts and creepy cocktails. A great idea to get your customers excited and try something different with your menu.

Christmas Markets Incoming!

The festive season is fast approaching and, after a quiet 2020, Christmas Markets are back with a bang this year. The UK's oldest and largest market in Manchester is moving front and centre to Piccadilly Gardens as well as taking over six other city centre locations. We can't wait to grab a warm glass of mulled wine and join the party!

Honest Burgers launch new Nigerian burger

Everyone knows Honest Burgers dole out some of the best buns in the business, and we can't wait to taste their latest creation, which is inspired by the West African flavours of Chuku's, Tottenham's brilliant Nigerian tapas joint. The special burger will be available until November 1st and feature Fanta-candied bacon, jollof sauce, plantain crisps and Chuku's special spicy mayo

Engine Rooms, East Finchley

Here's one for all those petrol-head foodies out there, a road trip to the East Finchley, where diners can enjoy their dinner surrounded by motor-themed memorabilia and classic cars. The Engine Rooms is a cracking little restaurant within the grounds of Hexagon Classics, a vintage car dealership, where you can peruse their gorgeous selection of vehicles then settle down to a slap up feed.

Have you got what it takes to try Cincinnati Chilibomb?

This is definitely not one for feinthearted, a little slice of Cincinnati has arrived in London in the form of Cincinnati Chilibomb, a Cincinnati-style chili parlour- owner Tim Brice has brought his own experience of living in the city with his parents back in the 60s and 70s. Diners will be able to spice up their food experience by choosing 'chilli injections,' syringes of heat which come in a variety of different scoville ratings.

What's in a name?

And finally, what better way to grab a little attention than with your restaurant name? Phat Phuc Noodle Bar is bringing fresh Vietnamese fare to Kings Road in London, the name apparently translates to Happy Buddha, no sniggers at the back. This follows the opening last year of Pho Cue in Manchester's China Town, it seems a little childish humour will never go out of fashion
