The Mancunians have spoken and their demands are clear – all they want for Christmas is sauce. So, for two days only, Meat Lust is bringing its bright pink double decker bus back for Sauce and the City: Christmas Special.
This seasonal spectacular will see guests ‘whisked through a festive spice garden’ and sample five specially-created concepts, including the Turkey and Stuffing Samosa from Meat Lust’s magical executive chef, Alex Worrall (former head chef at The Refuge, Victor’s Hale and The Reform), as well as a selection of stunning ales from official beer partners, Brooklyn Brewery and ShinDigger to wash the delightful dishes down.
In true ‘Sauce and the City’ style, the Meat Lust team will offer a fairytale tour of Manchester and drive guests round for Christmas to visit its favourite festive food spots to sample even more exclusive miniature dishes. With official food partners including Crazy Pedro’s Part-Time Pizza Parlour, Northern Soul Grilled Cheese and Bunny Jackson’s, expect pigs in blankets on pizzas, turkey grilled cheese sandwiches and some festive cocktails.
Scott Dixon, Director of The Flava People and third-generation flavour fanatic, said: “Manchester loved the pink bus in July and it would seem the item on the top of the city’s Christmas list was another Meat Lust ‘Sauce and the City’ tour.
“It’s Christmas time, so who are we to ignore the festive call for a Meat Lust tour. We’ll be wishing everyone a happy Christmas with lots of great food and drink and even a limited-edition Meat Lust sauce, “Santa’s Cranberry Ketchup”. Don’t worry if you over-indulge as this time, we’ve got the eighth wonder of the world on board – ‘The Hanging Gardens of Gaviscon’, Christmas games, a raffle, reindeer piñatas and eggnog, as well as a standard issue bad Santa and his hideous sack.”
The tour dates are as follows, Fri 8th – 7pm, Sat 9th – 3pm and Sat 9th – 7pm. The bus departs outside B.Eat Street on Deansgate. Passengers are advised to arrive 15 minutes before departure time. Keep your eye out on social media and follow the Hashtag: #CitySauce for further information.
