Following the unprecedented events of the last weeks, we have had to think creatively to respond to the rapidly changing hospitality sector in order to stay afloat and be in a position to bounce right back after the storm. We are aware of the tremendous pressure on food delivery services and want to contribute in getting good food out to people so that you can stay home and stay safe.
It is a rapidly changing situation and we are continually assessing best practice to keep our customers and staff safe. As a result we have decided to no longer offer a hot food delivery service. Instead we have our full range of dumpling flavours available in frozen packs, as well as freshly made bao buns that will keep in your fridge or can be frozen for later. We will be doing two delivery runs per week on Tuesday and Saturday, so please place your orders by 1pm the day before for next day delivery. We’ll also be doing monthly delivery runs further a field. For more information on the procedures we have put in place to ensure that you can eat and enjoy our food with confidence please go to our hygiene procedures page.
Your support of our local economy through the next few weeks and months could make or break a lot of independents in the same boat so look out for all the ingenious community initiatives that will inevitably come about.
Also, if you’re in a position to do so, please consider paying it forward by purchasing a meal for an nhs staff member, or buying an Ah-Ma’s gift voucher to redeem anytime in the future. Bristol Love. Thank you!
Frozen dumplings, freshly made bao buns and homemade dips.
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.
