Foodies.rocks – Northampton

After opening late last year, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to find Foodies.rocks.  I love street food and being able to have a meal where you can share with friends and try a selection of different dishes is great. If this is what you are looking for I would 100% recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant is very relaxed, when you take your seat you are handed the menu and a tick sheet to select your dishes. They also have a great selection of world beers; I went for a Cambodian Pilsner – Kingdom. Very similar to a Nandos style meal, pay at the counter then grab your drink and cutlery. As soon as each dish was ready it was straight on the table, much to our delight as we were starving!

We were recommended to choose 2-3 dishes per person; however as everything sounded so good we went for 7 and shared between 2. I was absolutely stuffed but so glad I tried everything, We chose the following dishes.

Fish Tacos with Kiwi and Lime Sauce – Cod fish tacos, pickled onion, kiwi sauce
Chunky Funky Cassava Chips – Fried cassava, red chutney
Pork Gyoza – Minced pork dumplings, soy sauce
BBQ Pork Gua Bao – Steamed bun, BBQ pulled pork, cucumber, hoisin sauce, peanuts
Korean Sriracha Double Fried Chicken – Double fried chicken, sriracha sauce, mooli
Venezuelan Arepa – Corn flour bread, black bean salsa, avocado, plantain chips
Chicken Yakitori Skewers – Soy marinated chicken garlic, citrus, sticky rice

The BBQ Pork Gua Bao, Korean Sriracha Fried Chicken and Venezuelan Arepa were my top 3! The other dishes were so tasty too. Prepare to get a bit messy with the Bao and the Tacos though.. These 7 dishes, along with a glass of wine and a beer cost £22 per person. Fantastic value for the amount of food we had, it would barely fit on the table.

The restaurant also has a downstairs with a cocktail bar, table football, games and a film projector. This is a great space for drinks later on in the evening. They also hold film screenings and music nights which I will now be looking out for!!
