    Yeah, I’m with you Hora. It’s just an excuse to sell all the leftovers from a joint at inflated prices.

    Pulling your pork into a sandwich? Nasty.

    Not a new technique just todays food fashion, bit like Prawn Cocktail was in it’s day or Rocket and Parmesan salad.

    @hora I may be a bit dense but I cannot work out what 4 letter word you meant between YOU and COCK ? ***ing surely ?

    hora – try it, it’s amazing, takes an age to cook but makes a cheap bit of pork shoulder some of the best you’ll ever have, no lie!

    I believe it’s also compulsory to eat it in a ‘pop-up’ restaurant. Another benchmark of Nathan Barley-esque ****ishness.

    I reckon that if you call your organic bakery, tofu palace or hemp clothing shop a ‘pop up…..’ Then you immediately forfeit your right not to have it burnt down, with you in it!

    Is it an americanism? Sounds more glamorous than slow-cooked pork, which is what everyone ate until stir-fry was invented, in about 1978.

    I blame Ken Hom and Jamie Oliver.

    Because it’s nice and also makes a nice profit.

    It’s like lamb shanks were 15 years ago.

    Nobody wanted them then some chef made them fashionable and they rocketed up in price. Belly pork is trendy now as well.

    I have no idea what you mean scardeypants 😳

    Anyway give it few weeks Hora will try it and then declare it the best thing he’s had and wish he’d bought one ages ago. In true Hora style.

    Before trying to sell it a week later saying it’s not for him.

    Crispy Duck and pancakes arent trendy though.

    Another one I saw this week. A restaurant in a shopping centre with STREET FOOD written across the front

    Wheres the backstreet in HK with a stall/badlighting?

    For **** sake.

    Not any more but they very much were at one time.

    Ermmm! In Hong Kong?

    I think Hora has got out of bed on the wrong side, or hasn’t taken his medication.

    I love trying new stuff, although tbf, pulled pork is hardly new.

    Unlikely, it requires cooking and they don’t have fire yet.

    Oh we do. Unlike the south which is too damp for fire. 😀

    It’s cheap and people will pay 12 quid for a burger in a brioche bun with some of this on it and a very small potion of chips in a little zinc bucket all served on a plank – To a plank. I hate living in London sometimes. 8 quid for a take away pulled pork burrito at Waterloo station it’s madness I tells yer. Don’t get me started on the belly of pork at the Oxo tower, one small pice of the cheapest bit of pork you can buy served with pretty much f all, 21 quid, the view’s nice I suppose.

    Have you been stalking Captain Flashheart?

    8 quid for a take away pulled pork burrito

    That’s some mark up!

    Considering Asda sell British Pork shoulder for £3 a kg, I would guess you can get Dutch stuff wholesale for £2 a kg.

    No doubt some serious overheads for the pitch but still must be making some cash.

    That’s a bit nasty Drac 😉

    Though as a Midland born educated in the SW but living in the North with Parents from Yorkshire & London of Scottish & Dutch extraction its very confusing to know where I’m from!

    You can bet it in most bars in the US and it’s cheap and tasty. There’s been a few places doing up my way for a few years now and it’s still cheap and tasty. Lovely stuff. Had no idea it was trendy and expensive in some places 😮

    ^^^^^ this

    it is a cheap cut so keeps up the profits

    I have tried it a few times including a top BBQ stall and it has been bland and covered in sauce in a cheapo bread bun basically rubbish

    If you cook it yourself on the BBQ it is great and the leftovers fantastic in stir frys etc

    Its the same as OX tail which used to be cheap as chips but now isnt 🙁

    As someone married to a lady from south of the mason/Dixie i’ve been a fan of pulled pork for many a year, I wouldn’t call it new fangled trendy crap around her if I were you.

    Not that all southern cuisine is equally pleasant, if you’re ever offered ‘grits’ down there politely refuse, it’s truly grim.

    Belly pork has gone through a similar renaissance.

    It was always a cheap cut of meat until hora’s ‘faux-franz ferdinand lookalike in a cardigan beard/bobble hatted twit/bbc employee fashion cafe/semi old fashion-twist pub bollockory’ got hold of it.

    You are now expected to pay £15 for a bit of it in a restaurant.

    Even chips aren’t cheap as chips anymore. Although I bought a cheap brisket the other day at the C&C and after a nights cooking on 80 odd degrees it was pretty bloody good.
