A communal venue hosting different Vendors serving Street Food from around the world, spanning 2 floors with 2 bars and a further dining area downstairs also. A great venue to visit with loved ones whilst sampling various delicious dishes and washing them down with an array of beers, cocktails and soft drinks. Try out their Thursday pub quiz and Rock & Roll Bingo for a bit of fun too!
Last week I had the pleasure of going to Sheffield Plate as part of a Sheffield Foodies Social event with some of my foodie friends that also live in Sheffield. The venue was great and greeted us with prosecco on arrival and encouraged us to join in the pub quiz and Rock & Roll bingo, which was a bit of fun. And yes, two of our teams won!!
The venue gives a sort of market food hall/casual street food diner vibe with a bit of a retro feel to it too. A selection of street food vendors are lined up around the edge of an open dining area and downstairs you have another area with long tables and benches lined up as well as 2 bars, a small stage area (for quizzes/karaoke/drag brunch!, etc), photo booth and more.
The food vendors here are; Taverna Street Food (Portuguese cuisine), Wingin’ It, Thai Kitchen, Taste Peru, Meat Up (Greek & Balkan dishes) and Colombo (Sri Lankan food). With drinks served at Orchard Tap or Liquor Lab.
I opted to share with 2 of my friends so that we had the chance to try more before being too full. We tried;
- From Colombo – Kanda Bhaji; Sweet potato & coriander bhaji. These were delightful. Chicken Kothtu; Sri Lankan Street Food Market favourite consisting of shredded godamba roti, stir fried with onion, garlic, carrot, cabbage, egg, medium spices and curry leave. This dish was served beautifully and was a tasty dish mixing together a lot of my favourite ingredients. Good comfort food.
- From Meat Up – Meat Up Combo; 1 Mici (like a kofta), 1 Chicken, 1 Sausage, 1 Pork Steak, 1 Wing served with a small salad, chips, bread & dipping sauce. The meat was barbecued to perfection, a real meat lovers platter. VERY filling and indulgent, this went down really well.
- From Taste Peru – Empanadas; Pastries made with maize filled with cheese. These were lovely crispy cheesy little delights. Quesadillas; Tortilla wrap filled with lots of cheese (hell yeah), rumba rice, salsa and sauce served with skin on fries. A yummy dish although not as tasty as the others, was still good.
- Other foodies also rated the Chef’s Special Noodle Bowls from Thai Kitchen and the Halloumi Wrap from Meat Up.
After this, a few of us enjoyed 2 for £10 cocktails from Liquor Lab, which were great! I enjoyed the Gin & Elderflower cocktail which was really refreshing. A good night had by all and a lovely venue to visit if you fancy a bit of a treat and can’t decide what cuisine you want, try a few!!
