Block Steak Shop

A street food concept with a focus on high-quality steak and homemade accompaniments. Their aim is to offer a simple menu with an emphasis on locally sourced produce to create fresh and vibrant flavours. All of our sauces are homemade, our butters are churned and seasoned in house and we chip and triple cook our own potatoes in beef dripping. Our beef is reared locally and is free range and grass fed. We focus on lesser known cuts with sustainability and affordability in mind.

WHAT IS A PARMO?! For anyone living outside of Middlesbrough, this is probably what you’re thinking right now and well, thats where we come in. A Parmo is basically one of the best things you’ll ever eat; It’s a match made in heaven, it’s a culinary delight, it’s food of the gods. A Parmo is fried chicken goodness, covered in a rich, creamy béchamel, topped with a serious helping of cheese and shoved under the grill until melted and gooey. Perfect with chips and garlic sauce

Two brothers, Jack and Luke, quit their 9-5, bought their famous Thatziki blue food truck and started slinging gyros in a dimly lit car park in Worsley. Their food took off and their food truck went viral and fast forward to today they now have 1 shop in Chorlton, 1 in Leeds and soon a place in Kargo! 

Jack and Luke want the UK to get its Greek on That Ziki style. The brothers take so much pride in their work, making almost everything from scratch including their secret marinade, fresh tzatziki and sauces prepared daily. No frozen meat or additives just a bit of graft and big flavours. Thatziki get their Greek produce straight from Greece including their pita breads and feta to make sure you get a taste of them Greek islands!
