London’s Urban Food Fest this October

Mustard cocktails and a “fried chicken ambulance”

This October sees a new partnership between east London’s burgeoning Urban Food Fest with classic condiments French’s and Frank’s RedHot sauce offering the likes of mustard cocktails and something described as a “fried chicken ambulance”!

If you’ve yet to experience it and fancy a trip down to the Fest on Shoreditch High Street, then you’ll find one of the most laid-back vibes in London Town right now, with live music, tons of great street food stalls and some great bars serving up craft beers and killer cocktails!

French’s and Frank’s RedHot have come up with a spicy banh mi sandwich with Frank’s and a fried chicken bun with the mustard that will only be served in October down at UFF.

They’ve also crafted some unique bourbon-based cocktails – one called the Tropical Paradise with mustard, lemon juice, apple and pineapple juice in, and the other called the Watermelon Twist, containing hot sauce, watermelon juice and apple juice – also served exclusively at the Urban Food Fest.

More details below from the press release just in:

“America’s favourite mustard and the UK’s fastest growing hot sauce are taking over one of London’s hottest foodie haunts – the Urban Food Fest in Shoreditch every Saturday in October for a saucy, American-style party like no other. London’s only pop-up food market will be serving refreshing, condiment-filled cocktails and decadent, Southern-style cuisine made exclusively for French’s and Frank’s RedHot from midday to midnight throughout October. Turn up at Euro Car Parks (162-167 Shoreditch High Street) in London for plenty of food, fun, live music and completely free entry. Sport your finest red, white, and blue to get a cocktail or beer on the house!

“If you’re already longing for warmer weather and wishing you could get down to Florida for a little R&R, look no further: French’s will be serving up Miami in a glass in the form of The French’s Tropical Paradise. This colourful concoction combines fresh lemon, apple and pineapple juice, Bulleit Bourbon, and French’s Classic Yellow Mustard for a little taste of sun and sand in your cup. Craving a bit more kick? Try the fiery yet sweet Frank’s RedHot Spicy Watermelon Twist made with Bulleit bourbon, Frank’s RedHot, a blend of apple and watermelon juice, and a dash of black pepper for an added zing.

“You’ll be feeling a bit peckish after all of those drinks, which is a good thing given the bespoke menu French’s and Frank’s RedHot has concocted in partnership with the self-proclaimed “fried chicken ambulance”, and Vietnamese baguette specialists. Not available anywhere else, these united plates of America are available exclusively at the Urban Food Fest in Shoreditch throughout October.

“Ever been down to Louisiana? You can (almost) say you have once you try the British southern fried chicken, wrapped in a warm, soft brioche bun topped with French’s Classic Yellow Mustard, a traditional, creamy remoulade sauce, crispy onions, and a smoky tomato relish.

“New York’s Chinatown is the best place in the USA to sample some of the most authentic Asian cuisine that side of the world. Grab a Banh Mi sandwich which combines Frank’s RedHot, sweet marinated chicken or pork, pickled carrots, crunchy cucumbers, fresh coriander and a slathering of mayonnaise to get a taste of the Big Apple right here in London.
