Man vs Sauce on Meat Lust’s ‘Sauce & The City’ Tour

Written by on July 9, 2017 in Eats News, News - No comments

There’s another kind of Magic Bus going to be doing the rounds in Manchester soon. This one will be full of food and drink and be touring some of our favourite food spots, all as part of Meat Lust’s Sauce and the City, a 10-day mouth-watering food and booze tour across this great city of Manchester. Oh yeah, and this Magic Bus is bright pink!

Starting on Thursday 20th July at Street on Deansgate, ‘Sauce and the City’ will see Meat Lust team up with those favourite food spots, who have all been tasked to create exclusive miniature dishes, using the Meat Lust sauces, to showcase the very essence of their menu – a two-bite wonder destined to get food fans screaming out for more. Some of the culinary giants set to be involved include: Crazy Pedro’s Part-Time Pizza Parlour, The Hip Hop Chip Shop, Sugar Rays and Northern Soul Grilled Cheese. There might even be a couple that aren’t in the Northern Quarter!

To ensure the bus is well-oiled in the sweltering July heat, Meat Lust has also teamed up with some of its favourite breweries: Shindigger Brewery, Tickety Brew and BrewDog. Beer tasting is a crucial part of the Sauce and the City experience and the on-board bar will keep hungry guests refreshed as they move from one location to another.

Celebrating music from Manchester’s famous music scene, guests will also be treated to a soundtrack of up and coming artists from around the city, including tasty tunes from Stillia, Kevill and Spring King and of course, there’ll be food on-board too. Spinningfield’s very own Beastro has developed a unique, one-off menu, which will be prepared on the custom-fitted Primo grill on the top deck. Like Meat Lust, Beastro’s meaty credentials come from the butchery industry, so it’s a perfect match for Sauce and the City.


Scott Dixon, Director of The Flava People and third-generation flavour fanatic, said: “Manchester is our home and we’re proud to call ourselves a Mancunian business. It’s an incredible city – blessed with great food, amazing booze, brilliant people and an infectious energy. To capitalise on this, we’ve come up with a pretty innovative concept in Sauce and the City. We’re orchestrating unique and exciting collaborations with some of the most celebrated new characters Manchester has to offer.”

As if that’s not enough, the Meat Lust guys have invited its newly announced celebrity ambassador Adam Richman, Host of Travel Channel’s ‘Man vs. Food‘,’Secret Eats with Adam Richman‘ and author of ‘Straight Up Tasty‘, to get involved. Adam, a self-proclaimed food enthusiast, will be tasting all the dishes, munching his way through the city and meeting Mancunian fans throughout the week.
