Moor bang for your buck at the Moor Market
There are plenty of fresh street food lunch options available at the Moor Market…
Most people in Sheffield know the Moor Market as a place to pick up fresh produce or browse the aisles for a bargain but this under-the-radar lunch spot is home to some of the best street food traders in the city.
With a dozen food stalls offering entire meals for under a fiver, the Moor Market is the perfect place to find a lunch-time alternative to a meal deal, and at great prices too. We headed down to the Moor Market to check out just some of the wide variety of street food options.
This no nonsense cafe serves up locally sourced, traditional dishes including homemade pies and cakes. We tried the student favourite lunch deal, a home-cooked cheese flan with chips, beans and a cup of tea/coffee for only £4.20. Karen’s is the perfect lunch spot if you’re craving some top-quality comfort food.
Lemongrass Thai Street Food
Lemongrass has only been a fixture in the Moor’s food court since October 2017, but when we tried the slow cooked Thai belly pork, which was extremely tender, aromatic and rich, it’s easy to see why it has become a popular choice with office workers and students alike.
The Hungry Buddha
For a gorgeous taste of Nepal, the Hungry Buddha specialises in authentic Nepalese Thali, with a menu that changes daily. Today’s trio of curries were pea and potato, yellow gram with cabbage and a rich chicken curry. We tried the ‘little bit of everything’ option for £6, and this was served up with sticky Thai rice, a tasty lentil dahl sauce and a selection of spicy pickles and chutneys.
Snake Chinese Cafe
Open six days a week, Snake Chinese Cafe serves up all your take away favourites such as chow mein, noodles, fried rice, steamed pork dumplings, salt and pepper chicken, sweet and sour pork, beef in black bean sauce, crispy won tons, sesame toast, pork balls, spring rolls and spare ribs. For £4, the chips and vegetable curry was super filling, leaving enough to take home for an evening portion too.
