Trinity Kitchen* has yet again changed the street food line-up. I went to check them out and absolutely fell in love with Shoot the Bull from Hull. They’re definitely the star of the show this time around. When I read about them it was the sound of their seafood mac n’ cheese and rice balls that I liked the sound of. However, their menu changes depending on location. In Trinity Kitchen, they’ve focused on beef burgers, chips and the Canadian special – poutine.
Shoot the Bull Poutine
I’ve never had poutine before but I love trying new foods so gave it a go. Poutine is a Canadian dish consisting of French fries, cheese curds topped with gravy. I was a bit reluctant at first as I’d never consider gravy on chips. Nobody should want soggy chips??!! For some reason, I thought these fries would be totally different to fish and chip chop chips and the same with the gravy and luckily for me, I was right. Shoot the Bull serve three versions: Original, Bacon and Black & Blue. As I’ve recently discovered I love black pudding, I went for the third option. Fries topped with cheese, onion, black pudding, blue cheese and salty thin gravy. It’s a great combination and for £5 you get a large portion which easily fill you up.
Shoot the Bull Burgers
I went back a couple of days later to also try their burger options. Their rare breed beef burgers are all £7 each and for a couple more quid, you get a meal deal which includes a drink and salt & pepper fries. Again, three options of burgers: Classic, Truffle and BBQ. I had trouble deciding between the original and truffle as I really like mustard but I equally love truffle mayo. I went for the latter and I was not disappointed. Juicy beef topped generously with truffle mayo in a soft pretzel bun. Every bite is mouthwatering!
Shoot the Bull have several venues in Hull (all with a slightly different menu) and one restaurant in Sheffield. I’d be willing to travel to both these places to check out the other menus, they all sound scrumptious. For now, I’ll be sure to head back to Trinity Kitchen at least once more while they’re still around. I think you should too.
Have you ever tried poutine before? If so, what do you think to it?
