Sausage Roll-Focussed Pop-Up Food Outlet Called Roller Boy Launched In Belfast
A sausage roll-focussed pop-up food outlet called Roller Boy has been launched in Belfast.
As reported by The Irish News, Roller Boy has been created by Ryan Crown and chef John Hollywood, and is located at Hill Street Hatch in Belfast, where Crown previously opened a pop-up grilled cheese outlet called The Toast Office, which has been moved into The Dark Horse on Hill Street, which is part of the Commercial Court Inns group, which is owned by The Duke of York proprietor Willie Jack.
Roller Boy, which is managed by Hollywood, serves a selection of pastries, with sausage rolls being its primary focus.
The Irish News quotes Crown as saying, "We continue to be overwhelmed with the success of The Toast Office and the hundreds of customers who queued outside the hatch each week to get their grilled cheese fix.
"We're confident the appetite for Roller Boy and its modern take on sausage rolls and fun, nostalgic desserts will be just as strong."
The Irish News quotes Hollywood, who also works as a chef at Belfast restaurant Yugo East, as saying, "I am delighted to see the Roller Boy concept come to life this week.
"After weeks working on the concept with the Hill Street Hatch team and playing with new takes on the staple sausage roll, we're looking forward to welcoming people to the Hatch…We've taken a simple savoury pastry and elevated it with modern flavours."

Hill Street Hatch will also host a "Summer Series" this summer during which Aaron Heasley's Moon Gelato who will serve homemade Italian-style gelato, A Peculiar Tea which will serve desserts crafted by Great British Menu's Gemma Austin and Filipino barbecue experience Kubo from Nalline Calvo will each take it in turn to operate at Hill Street Hatch for a weekend.
