Successful My Million Pound Menu contestants BBQ Dreamz are to launch a six-week residency at MEATLiquor in London’s King’s Cross this month.

Founders Lee Johnson and Sinead Campbell, who have been trading at street food markets and festivals since 2014, appeared on the BBC2 show this week (8 January) and impressed with their Filipino cooking.

They received a £350,000 investment from Draft House founder Charlie McVeigh, who sold the pub group to BrewDog​ last year.

Though MEATLiquor founder Scott Collins declined to invest in BBQ Dreamz on the show, the team will begin running a Sunday pop-up at his King’s Cross restaurant from 13 January.

From 12-8pm it will offer a ten-course tasting menu, with dishes including grilled satay duck heart skewers; papaya noodle salad; and lechon kawali (crispy deep-fried pork belly nuggets).

“From humble beginnings as a street food stall, we’ve been lucky to work at some of our favourite markets and leading festivals across the UK,” says Johnson.

“We’re now ready to bring our food to MEATLiquor and give our diners the true Filipino treatment and Irish hospitality that inspired us from the start.”
