A place where Yorkshire puddings are served for every meal of the day, Porky Pig is a Northerner’s dream come true.
The home of the Yorkshire Pudding wrap, Porky Pig has made quite a name for itself in recent years. From gifting us with the greatest street food stall of all time (probably), to becoming a permanent fixture in Manchester, the restaurant has come along way since its 1992 inception.
Now based on Cooper Street in a permanent residence, Porky Pig serves a variety of Yorkshire pudding themed meals, but the real gem? Their iconic Yorkshire Pudding wrap. The wrap is filled with your choice of carvery meat, before adding green beans, carrots, stuffing and gravy and being grilled to perfection.
The place has been a city fave since it debuted at Manchester United way back when selling their delicious hog roast, and has become one of the key highlights of the Manchester Christmas Markets since 2016, with queues attracted annually for the tasty treat.
Mancunians haven’t been able to get enough and due to huge demand, The Cooper Street restaurant opened in 2018. Featuring relaxed, wooden decor that feels just as homely as their hearty dishes, the space is the perfect pitstop for lunch in the city.
Not afraid to experiment with their muse, Porky Pig has created some seriously tasty inventions with one ingredient in common: the Yorkshire pudding. Creations have included their Yorkshire pud pizza, a full English served in a Yorkshire pudding, a Yorkshire pudding calzone, and even their dessert option which includes Nutella, mini eggs, cream and sprinkles inside a pud!
While the Yorkshire pudding is the key highlight of Porky Pig, the restaurant also serves up a number of tasty lunch items such as wraps in baked naans, carvery boxes, burgers, sandwiches, toasties and more – so if a pud don’t sound good, there’s plenty more available to quench your hunger.
Porky Pig can be found at 7 Cooper Street, M2 2FW and open 7am-4pm weekdays, 7am-5pm Fridays and 10am-4pm weekends.
