There’s nothing I can tell you about a Sunday roast that you haven’t heard before. “It’s sacred”, “life is rubbish without it”, “gravy is the blood of Jesus” – you know already, it’s a pretty big deal up here in Yorkshire. But that doesn’t mean it’s always good.
On our lifelong mission to find the best Sunday roasts in Yorkshire, we stumbled upon local gem Cascara in the East Riding town of Hessle – just a short drive along from Hull by the stunning Humber Bridge. But this wasn’t just any Sunday roast we found. No. This was a Sunday roast, served on a giant board, blessed with the finest Chateaubriand steak in lieu of your average roast beef. Piqued your interest, huh?
Taking inspiration from its menu packed full of South American flavours, Cascara’s Sunday roast puts a unique spin on the classic British dish – cooking instead on a traditional parrilla grill and adding a moreish blend of Argentian spices to the dish. And trust me when I say: it works. In fact, it might just be what the holy Sunday roast has been missing all this time – dare I say it.
Designed for two to share, the Chateaubriand sharing board consists of tender filet mignon steak, served with beef dripping roasties, creole sausage stuffing, molasses carrots, tenderstem broccoli, sweet potato mash, pigs in blankets and whopping Yorkshire puddings (not pictured below) – alongside two personal jugs of gravy to drizzle, dip and pour to your heart’s content.
But don’t pop your top button just yet – because that’s not all. As standard, the sharing board comes as two courses, with guests able to choose between a starter or a pudding to accompany the whopper of a meal.
For those a bit more daring, the meal can be served as three courses, meaning you can try every section of the menu during your visit – which we recommend, but only if you can handle it (the board is a lot of grub!).
Now, of course, being one of the most decadent and premium kinds of steak available, we recommend opting for medium-rare when ordering this epic board to get the most of our the steak’s flavour and tenderness, however, for those who’d prefer an alternative, guests can choose from Cascara’s regular Sunday roasts with corn-fed chicken, rump of beef or confit belly of pork.
Aside from mammoth Sunday roasts, the restaurant also serves up a wood-fired menu of South American-inspired dishes, including tacos, burgers, steaks, Parilla-grilled chicken and so much more. The Wagyu beef burger and confit belly pork with salt and pepper potatoes already has the Yorkshireman stamp of approval.
Cascara can be found on Prestongate – Hessle’s main high street – alongside a number of other great independents that call the town home.
