The Seven Secrets of Sheffield
Oh Sheffield! Is wonderful!
Part of Sheffield’s illustrious charm is that you’ve never really discovered it all. Not really. The city centre may not be that big compared to Manchester or Birmingham, but we’re actually one of the biggest cities in the country!
Crazy, that! Anyway, here’s some new little places that Sheffield has to offer, and a few that you may already know about from Wow247…
1. Bhaji Cafe opens at Kelham Island
The Bhaji Cafe have just moved from Chesterfield Road to their new (larger) home on Ball Street, Kelham Island. You can still enjoy their Anglo-Indian fusion food with freshly made bhajis (of course!), samosas, wraps filled with tandoori chicken, paneer or bhaji together with salad and chutneys. There are tempting salad combos or try their thali, where you get a bit of everything – daal, yoghurt, flatbread and a choice of paneer or tandoori chicken.
JÖRO is ‘an urban restaurant, which has a close bond with nature, to local farms, hunters and foragers…’ The menu is exciting and creative, with influences of Copenhagen’s famous Noma restaurant. Currently as a pop-up at The Milestone, JORO is set to open in the ground floor of Krynkl space (made of shipping containers) in Kelham Island.
4. Hidden gem – The Roco
You may have passed The Roco and not even noticed that it was there, hopefully after reading this you will call in and sample the delights to be found inside.
The space is a creative co-operative which is home to a beautiful bijou bookshop, Flask – a deli and beer shop and the Brood cafe bar. Here you can enjoy the DIY breakfast bar, a deli-style sandwich for lunch or chill out with a few drinks on their late-night opening on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. They have just opened their rooftop terrace which will be a perfect spot to enjoy some sunshine.
SatayYoBeer has just opened on London Road, next to Noodle Inn, and they are all about pan-Asian street food and beer. The menu is packed full of tantalising delights which take you on a tour of Asian cuisine with dim sum dishes, fragrant and spicy street eats from Thai fish cakes, gyozas to salt, pepper and chilli tofu. There’s a heap of rice dishes – katsu, massaman and black bean, as well as oodles of noodles with big bowl soups and stir-fried options. Hungry yet?
5. Whirlow Hall Farm – Beer and Bangers
If you fancy seeing some stand-up comedy in a more rural setting, then get yourself tickets for Beer and Bangers at Whirlow Hall Farm on 25 June 2016. For £22, you get to enjoy a night of live comedy in the lambing shed. The ticket price includes a pint of Abbeydale brewery beer and a Whirlow hot dog.

6. Pizza and beer?
Forge Bakehouse are back running their pop up pizzeria, the first one is on 8 May and will be run on a regular basis, keep an eye on their website for forthcoming dates. This year they are teaming up with neighbours Turner’s Bottle shop, so you have the perfect match of beer and pizza.
