It’s fair to say Porky Pig’s Yorkshire pudding treats have taken the city by storm. Their innovative creations have shown us just how versatile the humble pud can be.
The Yorkshire pudding wrap has been the must-try food at the Christmas Markets for the past couple of years. The full English breakfast stuffed inside a Yorkie has become our favourite indulgence – especially since they also deliver.
“It’s like eating a full cooked breakfast in a basket of fried bread – so in other words, it’s amazing,” was our Dianne Bourne’s verdict.
And their classic Sunday roast – complete with roasties, stuffing and gravy inside a pudding – is sealed into a wrap and toasted, so you can eat it with your hands.
Owner Eddie Osman opened The Porky Pig restaurant on Cooper Street near the Town Hall last year, following his huge success at the Christmas Markets in 2017 when hungry punters queued across Exchange Square to get their hands on his roast dinner wraps filled with fresh carved meats, veg, roast potatoes and lashings of gravy.
He’s now serving over 1000 of his puddingy treats a week. We just can’t get enough.
Eddie is constantly coming up with new flavours and creations. But his latest might be the best yet.
The Porky pizza consists of a choice of toppings and melted cheese on a tomato base, baked in a giant Yorkshire pudding, from £6. Meal deals, which include a Porky pizza, fries and a can, start from £8.50.
The new creation is launching soon – and we couldn’t wait to try a few out.
It’s essentially much like a Chicago style deep dish pizza, but the Yorkshire pudding base is golden and crisp. The fillings are generous, the cheese pleasingly melty. In short – it really works.
The Mighty Meaty is topped with beef, pork and chicken with mixed peppers, tomatoes and onions. Porkys American is all about BBQ pulled pork, or there’s a chicken option with marinaded BBQ or lemon and herb chicken.
A veggie option is laden with fresh mixed peppers, tomatoes and onions.
They’re all topped with hot, stringy melted cheese as standard, of course. And you can upgrade to a sweet smoky BBQ sauce, or a spicy tomato base if you want to feel the heat.
Be warned, though – the hot sauce is hot. Like, seriously hot.
Yorkshire pudding pizzas? We’re won over. And soon you will be too.
Porky Pig’s Porky pizza launches soon, available from The Porky Pig Restaurant, Cooper Street.
