Big Daddies Diner comes to Leicester

American food fans take note!

Something very special is coming to Leicester.

I have waxed lyrical about the joys of deeply unhealthy food that we enjoyed in the good ole US of A.  We have tried to find something to replace it and found burgers that pretty much hit the spot. Now is the time that we get to try some stonking hot dogs.

Big Daddy’s Diner are a Midlands-based street food trader, who won third place in the Midlands Street Food Awards in 2014. Just the other day I was bemoaning the lack of decent street food in Leicester on Twitter, so I guess that’s me put in my place! Because now Big Daddy’s Diner are coming to the Parcel Yard, by Leicester railway station.

For one night only, on Saturday 25th April, a special pop-up dining experience will offer you a purpose built four course menu which includes a main course of two of owner Jeff Wilson’s signature gourmet dogs and a special Oreo cheesecake for dessert. Musical entertainment will also be laid on, so it’s promising to be a true feast for the senses.

Tickets are on sale for £19.95, but if you’re quick you can follow this link to get a special early bird price of £16.95.

The menu is absolutely mouthwatering. Check the ticket link to read it in full. This sounds like it will be a wonderful night. I love the Parcel Yard, it’s a great setting for something a bit different and a lot fun. More of this please Leicester, more of this.
