Hero Eats: September

Three things you need to eat in Cambridge right now 

1. Pint Shop's Posh Kebab 

There are many highlights on the Pint Shop’s excellent menu, but the ‘posh kebab’ is the star, as far as we’re concerned. An open flatbread loaded with smoky devilled lamb shoulder, crispy onions and lashings of chilli sauce, it’s a symphony of colours, textures and bold flavours. Do yourself a favour and team it with a side of triple-cooked spuds, which come swaddled in truffle cheese sauce. Heaven. 


2. Buffalo Joe's Goch Ya Wings 

Recently bagging second place at London Wing Fest in the Best Wild Wing category, Buffalo Joe’s Korean-inspired Goch Ya Wings have a rep which extends far beyond Cambridge’s street food scene. Tender, buttery chicken with a lip-smackingly tasty, sweet and sticky marinade, slathered in wasabi mayo, they’re a deliciously exotic twist on a favourite.

3. Churros Bar's Churros

A Cambridge eat so heroic we had to triple-check that we’d not already featured them on this page, you can sample these doughnut-like chunky delights from Churros Bar’s truck, which pops up at events around the city including foodPark. Golden and crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, they’re sugary little bundles of deep-fried deliciousness that taste best (in our humble opinion) doused in salted caramel dip.
