Birmingham street food burger gods, Original Patty Men, who this year won the award for Britain's Best Street Food Burger, are setting up a permanent restaurant with craft beer specialists Siren Craft Brew, on Shaws Passage in Digbeth (see below) later this year.

Having made a name for themselves at Birmingham’s street food haunts, including Digbeth Dining Club, Scott O’Byrne and Tom Maher will serve their iconic burgers, made with 35-day aged longhorn beef from a 33-seater conversion.

The pair hit Birmingham’s street food scene with a background in design and no professional experience in the kitchen – just a love of a great burger. Their full story can be read here. Their dedication to the perfect patty, along with a delicious bun and their simple and inventive branding, earned the Original Patty Men a cult following; not least for their notorious Krispy Kreme burger, now known (for legal reasons) as ‘Big Verns Krispy Ring’ - a doughnut bun and patty topped with maple bacon, American cheese, ketchup & mustard - pictured here...

Following that British Street Food award, a trip to one of Berlin’s biggest street food festivals, Burgers and Hip Hop, and an invite to serve up their wares at Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, the Patty Men are taking their next big business step.

They're in cahoots with Siren Craft Brew, a Reading-based brewery and winners of the ‘Rate Beer’ awards for 2013 and 2014. Known for their experimental beers such as Caribbean Chocolate Cake and Limoncello IPA as well as regular stalwarts such as the tropically juicy Sound Wave IPA, Siren will be ensuring bostin' beers to wash down them boigers.

The Original Patty Men restaurant will open in early December, from Thursday through to Sunday.
