Cambridge Foodie Recommendations Part 2 – Thirsty & Hungry

Thirsty & Hungry

Priced – Low – Mid £ – £££

Opening in February this year you’ll have your finger on the pulse with a visit here….


The opening times are – a little random – the following:


Situated approximately half way along King Street this newly opened Bo Ho sandwich diner offers it’s customers the chance to eat fresh, tasty & on the go….if you happen to be in a rush to get to the river!!?

It’s a non-bookable table offering so you just turn up and hope for the best. Once you get past the rustic chic vibe we are here to ask the question – what can we smash into our beaks on this chilly Wednesday lunch time to elevate the soul and to lift the mid-week blues?


I went for a “Reuben” and my luncheon partner went for the “Toastyflette” – both of them are high calibre sandwich options which would no doubt have a rocketing calorific content and so does reside firmly in the “treat” section of the weekly calorie count. They were luxurious, sweet and tangy – characteristics which are normally hard to find on the High St. We would have just appreciated the addition of a gherkin – otherwise banging! We went for an accompaniment of the beetroot salad which was a zesty fresh partner to the unctuousness of those naughty wiches….In short – very happy!!


Also, they offer a comprehensive list of posh wines and beers (some of which have been produced in conjunction with the Thirsty management team) for you to wash down your artisanal wiches. They refer to their wine list as “Low Intervention” – for those of us not in the know this translates to organically produced with no nasty additives (other than the booze – which isn’t an additive of course simply a bi-product of fermentation – der!) They also offer tasty – and of course, organic – wine for takeaway!

In summation we enjoyed a very satisfactory lunch (quantity-wise) for £20 for both of us. It takes 5 mins to reach from the town centre and you pass some of Cambridge’s best pubs along the way including a personal favourite of mine The Champion of the Thames. Worth popping into if you have the time…?!

What could possibly go wrong…??
