#FoodFightMCR Launch Night

Last Friday saw the return of the Food Fight to Manchester. It is an event which is pretty famous in Manchester for many reasons. It is the ideal going out place for people like me who prefer good food and a nice cocktail with some lovely company rather than clubbing. Also, it opens at 5 which means there is absolutely no need to stay up past my bedtime.

I wrote a whole post about the venue and how I had a great time there with the BlogSoc girls over on their blog so feel free to give that a read. However, I really wanted to talk a bit more about the amazing food I had when I went so I thought this would be the right place to do that.

First of all I have to say that there are so many stalls at the venue which makes it incredibly hard to decide what to have. Everything is quite reasonably priced any many of the restaurants sell smaller versions of their usual dishes which is a great way to try out new things. 

I had seen the Piggie Smalls menu on the event's facebook page and ever since then I hadn't been able to stop thinking about the Boozy Kraut Hot Dog. I'd never had a sauerkraut hot dog before but it sounded so amazing and since sauerkraut really reminds me of home there was really no way I wasn't going to get this. It came in a brioch bun, the sausage was delicious and topped off with sauerkraut which had been soaked in beer, garnished with some curry mustard. What more can I say. This might sound disgusting or at least strange to some people but to me it was definitely the best hot dog I'd ever eaten and I am very tempted to go back one Friday just for this. Says it all doesn't it? I don't go out after dark for many things.

I will definitely be going back to #FoodFightMCR on a different night just to try some more food and have a great time. Let me know if you'd like me to do another post then as I'll probably be trying different things. Also let me know in the comments if you've been before and what your favourite dishes were!

Wow it looks like an awesome event :) I really want to visit the food fight as I missed Beat Street! Hopefully it's running for a few more weeks as I have an op this week and need to keep off my feet for a bit :(
