Northampton’s popular street food pop-up Bite Street will launch a new eating experience for the town this weekend – with an event dedicated solely to burgers taking place at Franklin's Gardens.
Burger Street will boast a line-up of six top-class burger traders including the award-winning Patty Freaks, who were crowned national burger champions in 2018.
The event will help to raise money for the NHS with £1 from every burger sold going to help build a new play for the children’s ward at Northampton General Hospital.
Popular local vendors will also feature with The Smoke Pit, The Flavour Trailer and Pinch My Bun all joining in the line-up.
Organiser Crispin Slee said: “Who doesn’t love a burger? And this weekend there will be more burgers in one spot in Northampton than ever before.
“They’ll be wall to wall from a line-up of burger royalty and the menu will feature some one-off specials.
“I’m looking forward to trying the Sunday roast burger which has been devised by The Smoke Pit in collaboration with Christian Day.”
Rugby legend and Masterchef contestant Day is famed for his Sunday roasts. His burger features a potato rosti, cauliflower fritter, Yorkshire pudding and gravy.
The award winning Saf’s Kitchen will be adding a touch of spice to the weekend with their famed Punjabi burgers.
As well as meaty mouthfuls, there will be a range of vegetarian and vegan options and Flats Doughnuts will be providing an exclusively vegan range of desserts.
Burger Street takes place at Franklin’s Gardens this weekend as part of Bite Street’s Summer of Food Love with food and drink events through to the end of August.
It runs from 5.30pm to 10pm on Friday July 16, 1pm to 10pm on Saturday July 17 and noon to 4.30pm on Sunday July 18. It is Covid-safe with full table service.
