We had a small glitch with our contact form...bad robot! This meant that a small number of messages didn't receive responses as quickly as we would have liked. Yikes! We're really sorry about this! The error has now been corrected and we're receiving all messages again ;-)

Lonely Planet: Northern Ireland Food Trip

The May edition of the Lonely Planet Traveller guide includes a write-up of food around Northern Ireland and includes PNPs ;-)

We’re surrounded by the world’s best produce. Why wouldn’t you want “grown here”, over “flown here”?’ says Kevin Pyke, a chef who uses Broighter Gold, alongside other home-grown ingredients at his converted sea container-cum-food-stand beside Derry’s River Foyle. Inspired by his global travels and the bounty of his local area, he hawks dishes from ‘Today’s Catch’  fish tacos to ‘Legenderry’ burgers made from beef raised 10 minutes away.

New Jalapeño Burger

In case you haven't tried it yet, we have a new burger down at the river: Wagyu beef pattie, baby gem lettuce, chipotle mayo, ketchup, cheese, shallot & jalapénos, and a toasted brioche bun...it is off the charts!

Irish Foodie Bucket List: 30 dishes worth travelling for

Great news! We made the Irish Foodie Bucket list in the Independent...thanks Pól Ó Conghaile and congrats to all the local restaurants that made the list.

Kevin Pyke is famous for running Northern Ireland's No 1 food truck. Now he's also running a 'POD' - a foodie pit stop fashioned from a funky shipping container - and the kitchen at Derry's Blackbird pub. Try the Glebe Wagyu beef burger and you'll have your eureka moment. From a small but perfectly formed sandwich board menu that could just as easily be served in a restaurant, this combines the beef patty with cheese, tomato, pickled onions, 'soft leaves', honey mayo and a toasted brioche bun. Tacos and wraps are on the menu too. Sublime Northern Irish street food.
