Bradford Food – Pizza Pieces

Some people grow up with memories of happy meals or sitting in burger king with a crown resting on their head as a small child on Saturday afternoon. Although I did from time to time go to McDonalds my Saturday afternoon treat if I went shopping with my mum was “Pizza Pieces”.

A family run business which can be found on Market Street in the City Centre of Bradford has been in operation for over 20 years, the owner Antonio Bariero did have some difficulty in 2012 due to the Westfield development (T&A Article), but I am happy to say they are still open and making great Pizza.

They server different variations of pizza, you can buy a quarter slice of a 16” Pizza, fries and a drink for the same price as a McDonalds meal, The pizza is freshly made on premises but there are Pasta’s, Salads and deserts available as well. When I visit I usually go with a peperoni slice and a tomato garlic slice, but the pasta is well worth a try also.

I don’t remember ever having a bad Pizza from Pizza Pieces and I have been a customer for over 25 years, I love that I have grown up eating in here,  I have organised meals with my teams at work and Pizza Pieces actual featured in my wedding speech.

I love the direction Bradford is going supporting local businesses at the top end of town in the independent but you really must check out Pizza Pieces at the bottom end of the city centre and tell them … “Spenfu sent me” Winking smile

Worlds best Chicken Doner?

Bradford is know as the Curry capital of the UK and with good reason as people through out the country travel to Bradford to sample our amazing spicy cuisine. There is a Curry Festival held in Bradford every years and it is the home of Mumtaz curries which are now available in CO-OPS across the UK.

There is a a hidden gem in Bradford and although they do server some lovely looking curries there is only one thing I order when I visit and that is the Chicken Doner Kebab … “A Kebab!” I here you cry …

Yum ... Yum ... Yum
The Mixed Donner

Shimlas which can be found near the University Sports centre servers the most amazing chicken donnar kebab, it is served with cooling yogurt and spice chili suace, a salad (with a pickled chill … YUM) and a large nan bread.

It is severed in a DIY style when you eat in the restaurant with the contents on a plate and the nan in a basket and then you choose what you do next. Most seam to tear of some bread and pick up.

The price is also very reasonable at only £5.50 for a chicken Donner which will fill most, it is a real bargain.
