As one of Yorkshire’s most exciting street food traders it hard to keep up with Street Cleaver. From appearances at some of our favourite foodie events, pop up restaurants, private event catering, work for the homeless and current residency at Evil Eye Lounge in York, to a potential position at Spark:York. Wow, Street Cleaver is definitely one to watch.
Founded by Mark Hill, a self-confessed obsessive, compulsive pickler and true foodie, his mouth-watering Asian inspired street food is some of the best we’ve tried. Progressive street cuisine that changes with the seasons and the trends. Mark said “at Street Cleaver food is life, it’s all I’m good at and all I’ll ever be good at. I enjoy creating intense flavours with Nordic, Asian and Indian influences. I enjoy testing trends and putting my own Street Cleaver twist on it”. Examples of this include his vegan kimchi and unreal bao bun donuts with rose water syrup, absolute heaven!
Originally from Hull, Mark has 10 year’s experience as a chef at various restaurants from fine dining to indie small plates. This experience has also included Chef Consultancy, helping other establishments improve their menus, hygiene ratings, food on offer and staff training.
Street Cleaver have a current residency at York’s popular Evil Eye Lounge. Ingredients are fresh, seasonal and local, all made from scratch and bursting with flavour. With an incredible brunch menu including dishes such as ‘Miso Pork Belly Pancake Tacos’ and ‘Crispy Chicken Waffles’, ‘Asian Tacos’ and ‘Steamed Bao Buns’ for lunch and as Street Cleaver puts it “the best Sunday Roast in the whole universe” with mustard infused Yorkshire puddings and maple syrup greens. Yum. You can also try Street Cleaver’s twist on ramen, with weekly changing ingredients that arrives to the table deconstructed.
