In Birmingham there are just two names that you need to know for amazing street food – Digbeth Dining Club (DDC) and Brum Yum Yum (BYY).
While DDC remains firmly in Digbeth, BYY has just announced that they have acquired a long lease on a plot of land in the city centre at 62-70 Pershore Street, which will house a purpose-built South East Asian-style hawker centre.
This exciting development means that Brum will have its first permanent, purpose-built site for street food traders, open daily when it launches in October whoop whoop!
Duncan Stanley, founder of Brum Yum Yum told Street Zine magazine: “The planned hawker centre is an extensive project and will take several months to complete. So for the Spring / Summer season we’re going to use the venue to host a pop-up for fifteen weekends between 27th May and 3rd September”.
“That’s a Brum Yum Yum city-centre street food party every Friday and Saturday night for fifteen weeks. A whole summer of street food, right in the heart of town!”
The venue will feature a covered split-level mezzanine and a covered, heated courtyard with 10 traders units, two shipping container bars, seated areas and a live music stage. Opening Fridays and Saturdays 5-12pm, BYY will build a show around each night featuring live bands and DJs.
