Jersey Bite of the Week: The Hungry Man

All information in this blog post is correct as of the publishing date,  24.08.12.

A legend amongst locals, The Hungry Man is a Jersey institution.

Perched on the back of Rozel Pier, on Jersey’s east coast, The Hungry Man is big on flavour, friendliness and location. Visitors are treated to some of the best views from Jersey whilst enjoying Rozel’s small harbour atmosphere and enjoying some of the island’s most down-to-earth and honest food.

A Varied Menu

From teas, coffees and homemade cakes to burgers, freshly made crab sandwiches and Jersey cream teas, The Hungry Man is unashamedly proud of its big dishes. The star of the show is the incredible ‘Double Decker Healthwrecker’, a favourite that comes with the tagline “double cheese burger, double bacon, double dare you!”. Burgers are served on rolls that are simply out of this world, the soft white Portuguese-style bread absorbing flavours and the slightly crispy crust giving a satisfying crunch. Elsewhere the chilli cheese burger and veggie burgers offer something a little different (but equally tasty!)

Away from the burgers and hot food, many regulars come here to relax a hot chocolate – a mammoth task in itself – or simply a cup of coffee and a slice of granny cake (yes, made with real grannies!) Simply drive down to Rozel Harbour, pick a parking spot and a table on the pier, and wander up to The Hungry Man’s window to place your order. Sit back, take in the scene, and enjoy one of the best places to eat fast , but fresh, food.

A word of warning, sunny days and weekend are very, very busy! Park up at White Rock and enjoy a 20 minute walk down the hill, perfect for working up your appetite!
