Starting out with a successful debut at Festival No6 last year, The Middle Feast is a relatively new addition to Birmingham’s burgeoning ‘street food’ and event catering community. But think bigger, think better. This is some seriously yummy stuff.

Taking over the Hare & Hounds on Thursday 12th May, Lucy Rhodes brings her ‘Middle Eastern inspired kebabs & mezze’ onto the tables tops of Kings Heath for a sumptuous sit down affair. The Middle Feast @ Festival No6 / By Ed KingPitched at £25 a head you get an absurdly rich three-and-a-bit course meal, with a veggie or meat option depending on your blood lust.

And it’s hard to cherry pick (…no pun) something from the menu to wet your whistle – although since reading ‘Clementine & ricotta fritters, pistachio – dark chocolate crunch, orange blossom syrup’ it’s been hard to think about much else.

But don’t get distracted by desserts, or even pre-desserts; from the tongue twisting ‘Barbecued saffron-lemon chicken, sumac roasted cauliflower purée, preserved lemon salsa & toasted hazelnuts’ to the simply elegant ‘Hickory smoked yoghurt’ there’s almost too much to handle here. I kid you not; check this mamma jamma menu out:

…the words you’re looking for rhyme with ‘rolly duck’. And, arguably, ‘what are we doing tomorrow night..?’
