Working barbecue shack hits the streets of London

Meat Lust – part of The Flava People group – has launched the Bare Bones Tour, a double-decker bus transformed into a fully operating barbecue shack. 

Featuring exclusive street food-inspired dishes from award-winning chef Ben Spalding (pictured), the travelling shack will be touring a selection of London’s restaurants and street food hotspots next month, including: Mark Gevaux (Rib Man); Clutch Chicken; Bleecker St; Foxlow and The Bowler Meatballs.

Taster-tickets are available for £30, entitling guests to four taster plates smoked on-board by Spalding, an off-menu dish at each of the five partner stops – mentioned above – and four craft beers paired to taste by a local London brewery, Gipsy Hill Brewing Company. Head chefs from each restaurant will come on-board and answer any questions the diners have.

“Meat Lust is all about diverse, memorable and hard-hitting flavours, so when we first discussed the Bare Bones Tour it was important for us to work with the very best – uncompromising talent from the thriving London food scene, who share our passion for bold and unforgettable dishes,” said Scott Dixon, director of The Flava People.

“We couldn’t be happier with the London line-up and we’re already excited by the thought of hitting the road and discovering incredible dishes in cities across the UK.”

Meat Lust’s street-food inspired sauces are available in around 1,500 stores across the UK, including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons, as well as select butchers and independent retailers. They come in BBQ Mop, Chinese BBQ, and Buffalo and Green Sweet Chilli flavours.
