10 totally unique Sheffield dishes you need to try
Sheffield has always loved food. The city, the people. From Hendo’s on everything (and rightly so!) to our fierce defence of the breadcake (and breadcake it is too)! Wow247 have more on the fabulous eats we have knocking around the city at the minute…
Sheffield has undergone a culinary revolution in recent years, with a huge amount of new places to eat opening their doors in the city.
As a result, there’s now a variety of unique menus and snacks on offer and here’s a look at ten dishes you won’t find anywhere else.
Sheffield fish cakes
Fish cakes in Sheffield aren’t the same as those found elsewhere – they’re better. Unlike those breaded mashed potato versions found elsewhere, a Sheffield fish cake (sometimes referred to as a Yorkshire fish cake) is made up of two pieces of potato with white fish sandwiched in the middle with the whole thing battered and fried. Delicious. Get yours from one of the city’s chippies and enjoy.
Giant sausage rolls at The Grind Café
The Sheffield Egg
Created by chef Peter of PJ Taste, the Sheffield Egg is the city’s homage to the classic snack. A free-range egg is encased in Moss Valley sausage meat and then seasoned with Yorkshire Cheddar and Henderson’s Relish. It’s then surrounded in breadcrumbs and crushed seeds. You can find it at Urban Deli and BrewDog Sheffield.
Drop Dead Falaf-hell Burger at Twisted Burger
The team at Twisted Burger bring a variety of sinful burger combos to The Harley, but one of the stand outs on their menu is their vegan burger which is a world away from the standard meat-free fare. It was created in conjunction with Drop Dead, the clothing line by Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes.
The Moist Maker at Twisted Burger
If you thought Twisted Burger’s regular menu was unique enough, you shouldn’t miss what they serve on a Sunday. The Moist Maker is a double patty (available as beef, chicken or the vegan Falaf-Hell option) served with stuffing, a Yorkshire pudding and, of course, lashings of gravy.
Piggy Smalls pizza at Craft and Dough
The joy of pizza is the sheer choice of options available. Craft and Dough have a number of innovative toppings, but it’s the Piggy Smalls that really stands out. With pulled poke, streaky bacon and Frazzles, it’s a joy for pork fans. It’s also available as a gluten free version.
Burittos from the Street Food Chef
Lucky Shakes at Lucky Fox
Bringing a bit of Brooklyn to South Yorkshire, The Lucky Fox serves a range of calorific US-inspired dishes, but it’s the milkshakes that will probably make the biggest impression as they’re absolutely huge and come served with a doughnut on top. Not one for those watching their waistlines.
The Mestizo at The Steam Yard
6 months ago we launched these bad boys! (Inspired by our good friends down under; the awesome @butterbingmelb ) The Steam Yard Mestizo. Part brownie, part cookie with a butter cream filling. Only available at Steam Yard. We recently added some new flavours – Peanut Butter, Mint & Mocha. You guys seem to be LOVING THEM and we're developing this more so expect loads of new additions to our bakery counter.
