I tried the famed Yorkshire pudding wrap –and so should you
The York Roast Co. – trust me when I say it's fast food done right
I have lived in York for 11 years now, and still never tried food from The York Roast Co. Recently, all that changed, and now I want to go every week.
For the last 11 years, I've been missing out on the famous 'Yorkshire pudding wrap', an iconic British dish.
When I arrived, I was greeted with three options: Pork/ham, turkey, and beef. I went for the turkey because a) I'm not a fool and b) it comes with cranberry sauce which is a must because who doesn't want a moist Yorkshire pudding wrap?
Once I had paid my £6.45, I waited in line until the kind Yorkshire lady behind the counter handed over the goods – and nearly burned my hand off as the wrapping was so hot. I found a spot outside the shop and tucked in.
I'm about as careful opening food as a monkey cracking open a nut, so predictably, I made a bit of a mess. However, my brother managed to cover most of his face in apple sauce from his pork wrap.
Inside the wrap there was plenty of turkey, carrots and beans, stuffing, and a nice dollop of gravy which I wasn't expecting, plus the cranberry sauce which was much needed. The overall taste was superb as you would expect from one of the city's oldest roast spots. The meat was juicy, the veg was standard and perfectly cooked, the stuffing was delectable – leaving me very satisfied indeed.
Would I get it again? Sure, but only if I were in more of a rush as I would much rather sit down to a proper roast dinner instead of one which covered my clothes in gravy.
