Med Food Co, in Broomhill, is joining forces with Temporary Restaurant at Abbeydale Picture House on Saturday March 25.

Its healthy fast food is normally served in containers or wrapped in flatbreads.

“As Temporary is a one night only restaurant experience we will be leaving the boxes in Broomhill and plating up properly for the event”, said owner Ruth Gunay.

The menu on Saturday includes either grilled lamb served with smoked aubergine puree and feta cheese or falafel served with hummous, followed by pistachio chocolate brownie.

Diners will also enjoy a cocktail called Turkish Delight Made in Sheffield - a combination of Locksley gin with rose lemonade and Campari.
