Discover Hull’s diverse foodie landscape

Explore our city’s culinary culture – just in time for Yum! Festival.

This Friday sees the return of Yum! Festival of Food and Drink, and it’s got us thinking about all the incredible food and drink Hull has to offer.

Not only does the Hull food scene celebrate and enjoy a variety of international influences, but we’ve got some pretty good homegrown grub to shout about too.

So whether you’re heading to Yum! 2017, or if you’re after some foodie tips to enjoy in Hull throughout the year, these are just a few of our faves.

If you’re a regular diner in Hull, you’ll have probably come across Kerb Edge and Shoot the Bull before. Regulars at many of Hull’s food events, and each with a base in the city’s Old Town, they’ll both be setting up camp at this year’s Yum! Festival. Kerb Edge’s burgers and legendary and gastro pop-up Shoot the Bull offer innovative food, taking the restaurant to the street.

If you’re feeling the Yorkshire pride, head over to Fountell’s Eatery at Yum! for giant filled Yorkshire puddings and Yorkshire pudding wraps. Or if locally sourced, seasonal food is your thing, Handheld Food Co’s American-style trailer will be pulling up at the festival this year. And if you’re still watching your waistline for your summer holiday, Dino’s are on hand to offer you a healthier alternative to takeaway food.

Hull has its fair share of international flavours too, all well-represented at Yum! 2017. Indian connoisseurs Tapasya, Newland Ave’s Caribbean restaurant and bar Roots and Princes Ave’s Thai House are all firm favourites on the menu.

If you’re after something to satisfy your sweet tooth, check out Caffe Gelato’s stand for a selection of Instagram-worthy cakes, waffles and ice creams, or grab a mouth-watering pancake from Go Dutch Pancakes. And if you’re not already in a Yum! food coma, don’t forget to pick up some patisserie or a couple of chocolates from Cocoa Chocolatier.

Don’t worry, Yum! won’t leave you feeling parched either. If you fancy a tipple, the Yorkshire Brewing Company, Humber Street Distillery and plenty of others will be on hand to provide boozy and non-boozy beverages.
