Emma Spain don’t need no food writers. This girl can do the job herself. Just read this:
‘Meet PHATDAN, the boujee breakfast bagel, he’s the type of man to treat you right! Filled with garlic and chive cream cheese, smoked bacon, rocket, fried egg & home-made brown sauce all popped into a fresh hot crunchy on the outside soft on the inside sesame bagel.’ That is demon food writing. Even better, that is demon cooking, and that is what UBH is all about. Emma and the girls just get it: they understand instinctively the sort of modern food we want to eat. They know we want that sesame bagel that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They know we want brown sauce with bacon. They know a fried egg makes the world a better place. They know cream cheese needs garlic and chives. They know that rocket assuages our need for greens.They know all these things. Just like they know that a proper toastie requires Hegarty’s aged cheddar, Toonsbridge ricotta, Durrus cheese and mozzarella. All of them.And to know that they know them is to love, love, love UBH. For four years now, the UBH team have made Newbridge a better place to be, and not just because they cook smokin’ food. It’s also because they are funny, iconoclastic and irreverent. UBH is a blast. UBH is the bomb.
