Yorkshire pudding?

Umiel12 Dec 12, 2009 05:27 AM

Are there any restaurants in or around Austin that have Yorkshire Pudding on the menu?

    Bump. I've looked at the online menus of some of the 'pubs' around, like dog and duck or whatnot, and haven't seen. i'd like to find this too, ideally paired with prime rib or roast beef.

      googled and found this at Max's Wine Dive

      "Damn. . . Yankee Pot Roast -- 24 Texas-raised Kobe beef cheeks slowly braised and served with roasted root vegetables, mushrooms and Yorkshire pudding – all swimming in a sumptuous red wine braising jus"

        Austin has finally hit the big leagues.

        24 dollar plate of pot roast.

          the best thing about max's is the menu. the food never lives up to the description.

          I'm not sure if they have it, but you might try Friar Tucks Pantry in Round Rock. It's on main street in the old downtown part. It's owned by a British lady and has lots of interesting things.

            i actually had to explain yorkies to some co-workers the other day and figured texans didn't eat them (i'm a bostonian).
            $24 for pot roast is a SIN.
            but yorkies? mmmmmmm

              Not true about Texans and Yorkshire pudding. I'm surprised I'm the first to speak up.I've made many fine ones o'er the years. Texans ain't that dumb. I swear.

                i think of it as a cold-weather food, i guess, as roasts are very much an autumn-to-early-spring thing.
                and, we all know we don't have 4 seasons here!
