The Leicester street food scene is set to welcome a new addition this month as 2Funky Street Kitchen launches at the end of May. Their first event will be hosting El Contador for a Mexican feast and you can register for a free ticket below. 

2Funky Street Kitchen will be launching in a fully refurbished venue next to Braunstone Gate, offering a great space for regular street food events, as well as large bar area, indoor and outdoor spaces and a canal-side location that is perfect for summer.

For a sunny afternoon with friends or weekend cocktails and a bite to eat, 2Funky Street Kitchen will bring something totally unique for the Braunstone Gate area of the city.
