Bringing traditional Cantonese Dim Sum to the streets!
We’re delighted to be included in Olive magazine’s pick of top UK street food stalls this month. It’s great to see a good proportion of traders from the South West in the line up too, which is a testament to our vibrant corner of the UK. Back in May we did an interview with Olive magazine while they were soaking up the vibes at Bristol Food Connections. Hear Anita talking about dense clouds, Bristol street food and her work schedule in Episode 2 – Sarnies, Spiralizing and Street Food of the Olive magazine podcasts.
No sooner after our last post yesterday did we discover Ah-Ma’s is in another top street food line up. This time in the Metro’s 15 Amazing Pop-up Eateries You Have To Visit This Autumn!
We’re just totally delighted that we can bring to you a small sampling of what growing up with real homemade Cantonese food was like. No MSG, no gloop, no bright artificial colourings, just fresh, simple ingredients balanced delicately to let the produce do the talking. And there’s certainly more to come!
In the new year we’ll have made our move into a brand spanking new kitchen to base dumpling HQ. Watch this space for developments!
It’s been a busy few months at Ah-Ma’s HQ, not least because we’ve expanded our regular markets to include a monthly trip to the Frome Independent, a market that takes over the whole of Frome town centre with over a 100 stalls showcasing local designers alongside vintage, flea and of course local producers and street food. Sunday 6th December will be the last date before March 2016, so be sure to check it out to support the rich, diverse community of local makers and producers.
With all the busy-ness we’ve also not had a chance to write about another mention we’ve had for the unadulterated tasty food we produce, this time by Culture Trip no less, in another Best Street Food in Bristol line up. We’re delighted to be up there with fellow Bristol Eats members Gopal’s Curry Shack and Viet Vite. As well as the regular Temple Quay markets on Thursdays watch this space for a final Bristol Eats street food night before Christmas.
We’ve been busy planning our involvement in some exciting events in the near future, like the new St Nick’s night market next week. With the folks at Bristol Pound and Food Connections on board championing local economy and feel good community vibes it’s set to be a good one. Got any Bristol Pounds you want to spend? You needn’t look any further.
Rumour has it Slap Ya Mama Big Band will be playing their tunes too, lush.
Hold up! We’re fitting in one last event before we head off on some holidays to Hong Kong – Following the success of the Bristol Pound 2nd Birthday, the Bristol Pound team will be hosting a special Food Connections Night Market in St Nicholas Market on Friday May 8th from 5.30pm – 9.30pm.
The Corn Exchange will be transformed again with street performers, musicians and other food traders along with us, including fellow BEATS members Gopal’s Curry Shack, Moorish and La Bonne Crepe. Looking forward to serving our steamy Dim Sum and soaking up the atmosphere!
