8 Reasons to Eat at Hidden Door!
May 24, 2017
As we’ve said before, Hidden Door loves a good scran and this year we wanted to make sure there was a bountiful array of options for everyone at the old Leith Theatre. Every year we manage to convince Edinburgh’s foodie finest to join us and delight our taste buds. This year has been no different and we are excited to announce this year’s food vendors! Here’s our EIGHT reasons why you should be eating at Hidden Door Festival 2017:
26-30 May: Fresh Revolution, Edin-Burgers, Wee Greek Kitchen, ALPLiNGS
We are very happy to say that Fresh Revolution are joining us again this year. They’re back with their delicious, globally-influenced, Scottish-sourced street food. Changing with the seasons, their menu includes the best of local, sustainable meat and farm fresh produce. We’re excited to have them joining us, our mouths are watering at the thought!
Is it a festival if burgers aren’t on offer? Edin-Burgers are joining us again to ensure you get your fix. Gluten free, additive free, locally sourced and Scottish reared, Edin-Burger are more than just your regular beef and bun. They’re mouth watering, rich in flavour and what we love most ethical!
Wee Greek Kitchen cover the delicious Greek and mediterranean classics, including souvlaki, spanakopitta and baclava. Packed with fresh and healthy ingredients, Poppy and team provide authentic homecooked meals to keep you dancing all night. They’ve got some great vegan options too.
Joining us this year, we are very pleased to have ALPiNGS who offer a condensed Alpine experience in the form of a dumpling! Alplings are a traditional alpine staple, a vegetarian bread-based dumpling. I also have it on good authority that the apfelstrudl is not to be missed, so we can’t wait to try their tasty mountain fare.
31-4 June: Barnacles & Bones, Ròst, Buffalo Truck, Harajuku Kitchen
Street-food favourites Barnacles & Bones will be at the festival with their unique take on fast food. You can expect a mouth-watering offering of shellfish and somewhat obscure cuts of meat. I can’t wait to get myself some crab on fries – yum!
Ròst are returning this year with the best of local and Scottish produce, of course! Their creative menu is full of sliders, home cured meats, game and fish. We’re already big fans of their delicious bao buns and, fingers crossed, we’re hoping they’ll be bringing their peanut butter crunch peasant burgers along as well!
We’re so excited to be borrowing Buffalo Truck from the brilliant new street food stop Food + Flea. The Truck will be offering a tempting assortment of buttermilk fried chicken, wings and other delights. They’re the perfect antidote for when you’re feeling peckish (sorry!).
Let’s be honest here, Harajuku Kitchen are one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. Their gyozas are exceptional. Creating brilliant wholesome and award-winning Japanese food, with a passion for authenticity and originality, we couldn’t be happier that they’re back again at Hidden Door!
From 26 May – 4 June 2017 Hidden Door takes over the old Leith Theatre which has been closed for 28 years. Click here for ticket info.
