Situated at the top of Queens Road, independent haven Hagglers Corner has established itself as one of the vibiest spots in town when it comes to food, drink and evening shenanigans. The cosy courtyard space plays host to a series of vibrant businesses, covering everything from cocktails and late-night DJ sets to tattoos and craft workshops. A recent change in food vendors saw the outgoing Bhaji Shop replaced with Corner Jammers, a new kitchen from the team behind much-loved Meersbrook establishments Create Coffee and sub sandwich aficionados Two Doors Down. Serving up a whole host of feelgood flavours from early ‘til late, they’ve quickly established themselves as a popular addition to the venue, and we decided to put that hype to the test by checking out their new evening menu last month.
So, as mentioned, the Corner Jammers crew have got you covered for brekkie (10am-2pm) with burritos, muffins and sandwiches. Lunchtime (10am-5pm) is all about their pièce de résistance – stacked subs – served alongside salads, sausage rolls and a rotating selection of savoury pasties and sweet bakes. Their evening menu, balanced evenly between meat and vegan/veggie options, is all about the good times: burgers, burritos, loaded nachos and fries, buffalo wings, rice bowls, homemade dips, plus a kids menu to keep the little’uns happy.
Our group of four ordered an impressive feast. A delicious double cheeseburger combined two juicy smashed patties with pickles, a generous portion of American cheese and a delicious tangy homemade burger sauce. Carnitas rice bowls packed in flavoursome rice, crispy pulled pork, refried beans, orange and lime slaw, pico de gallo, crunchy fried onions and jalapenos – all topped with spicy salsa and moreish chipotle mayo. The sides of cauli wings were coated in a rich buffalo sauce and the loaded nachos came covered with crunchy slaw and a delectable Jalapeno cheese sauce.
It was all comfort food at its very best, but the accolades had to go to the menu special: the Reuben sandwich. This stunning creation is very much a labour of love – everything from the whirly marble rye bread to the salt-cured beef is done in-house – and the result is surely one of the most wholesome, satisfying sarnies you’ll find among these seven hills. Yep, it was that good.
The Bhaji Shop left some big shoes to fill down at Hagglers, but Corner Jammers have slipped in those size 12s perfectly with a menu of indulgent crowd-pleasers served in a welcoming, upbeat atmosphere. Pro tip: complement your meal with a few expertly made cocktails from TAKK next door and really let your hair down. You deserve it.
