A travelling restaurant which has pitched itself in Norwich for two weeks is planning to take its brand of slow food across the region and beyond.

Bullitt Guerrilla Dining started life as a temporary pop-up restaurant based at The Barking Smack pub in Great Yarmouth, but found it had so many bookings it stayed for nearly a year.

Now the restaurant, which specialises in burgers, has moved to the Fat Cat and Canary pub in Thorpe Road, Norwich, for two weeks to help celebrate the pub’s second birthday.

Chef Mark Matless, from Norwich, said: “It is going really well for both businesses. The feedback is absolutely stupendous.

“I have cooked at all levels and, like a lot of other chefs, I like to cook simple food using local ingredients and using the tricks you use from cooking fine dining and pulling it back to basics.”

Describing the slow food movement Bullitt subscribes to, the 40 year old said: “It means it’s not fast food and mass produced. It’s all thought out. There’s history in it. There’s a sense of place. It’s being natural, and not using monosodium glutamate or additives or preservatives.”

The restaurant came to the Fat Cat and Canary on April 30, and will continue to serve diners until May 11. After a meal to accompany a wine tasting at HarperWells in Eaton on May 30, Mr Matless said he planned to go on to north Norfolk, Southwold, Brixton and other the venues inside the M25.

Christian Hodgkinson, landlord of the Fat Cat and Canary, said he had not been able to provide food at the pub himself, and hosting the pop up restaurant had been very successful.

Bullitt’s schedule is due to appear online today. See http://bitethebullitt.com
