Big eats bulwell

I am always happy to be directed off the main parts of the high street down a side alley by a food chalk board. I am doubly happy when I see the words “Hot Pork, stuffing, and cob”. This week I was wandering around Bulwell and saw this board for the “Big Eats” shop and an arrow instructing me to ‘Follow your nose”. Well I was all over that, never one to turn down such simple direction I trotted off to find myself a pork cob.

Pork Cob in Waiting The Big Eats Chalkboard Menu

In the window was my Pork Cob in waiting, a nice big joint of Pork that had given itself up to many other peoples lunch before I arrived, had it fallen on its sword? or had it been defeated by the carving knife of the shop owner?  Inside the chalk board was offering a Hot Pork cob with stuffing and apple sauce for £2.50. I ordered up one of those, declined the apple sauce, but asked hopefully if there was any pork crackling available? I was in luck and having handed over my handful of coins headed back out into the market place cob in hand to lunch.

Big Eats Roast Pork Cob

Once seated on a spare park bench I unwrapped my white paper bag to display my cob. It was a simple but tasty affair, soft white bap filled with plenty of freshly carved pork, some reasonable stuffing and some very (and I mean very) crunchy crackling. I liked this quite a lot.  It was all gone within a few minutes and the sad pigeons looked up forlornly as I shook out the last few crumbs from the bag.

“This cob was mine, all mine I tell you, ha ha ha ha” he cackled somewhat

Big Eats is at 4 Holborn Place in Bulwell, just a few yards walk from the market and about 5 minutes walk from the Bulwell Tram Stop

    Hey great blog! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount
    work? I’ve virtually no expertise in coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just wanted to ask. Appreciate it!

      No the blog itself probably takes me about 1 hr a day just to write the blog posts. Going out and eating the food takes time but I am doing that anyway. Just choose one of the free blog platforms and start. If you use wordpress you can download everything that you create and move somewhere else in the future if you want to as well
