Copy of Notts VIP’s welcome Street Food to Intu Victoria Centre
VIP’s from Nottingham flocked to get a taste of hotly anticipated new indoor street food market at intu Victoria Centre last night, a day ahead of the official opening today.
An expected sell-out crowd of 2,300 are due to visit the industrial style setting on the first floor of the shopping centre, next to the Clock House dining area. Concrete flooring, exposed pipes, oil drum seats and long wooden tables complete the recycled look.
Guests were treated to some of the best street food the city has to offer with Pizza from Suede, Gai Yang Chicken Taco and Jerk Veggie Taco; Caribbean ‘soul food’ with a twist from Chef Jugz, Vegan Fallafal and Meze from Numinums and, which seemed to be the most popular of the evening, Asian food from Masterchef finalist Pete Hewitt’s business Homeboys. The delicious samples were washed down with free beer and Prosecco for lucky invitees.
Guests had to queue for the tasters as busy traders worked hard to keep up with demand. Prosecco had run out by 8.15pm.
Following the success of this weekends sell-out, tickets are already available for the next market on 5-7th May, which are again being snapped up by hungry Notts diners even before traders have been announced. The market will take place every weekend for the next 12 months and will be open from 12 noon until 11pm, with a rotating roster of local independent traders. Payment is by card only and £10 will get each diner a meal and a drink.
