POCO Sicilian is known around Leeds for its irresistible selection of Italian treats, but these seasonal specials are safely pronouncing the two stores as the real Easter bunnies.
Located in just outside in the city centre in Kirkstall and Headingley, much-loved Sicilian street food POCO is the Italian deli-style takeout that rivals any and all takeaway options in Leeds.
With flavours straight from the motherland, the indie business has carved a reputation for fresh flavours with irresistible sweet and savoury options that change by the day- and that’s before the seasonal specials have been introduced to the menu.
This Easter, you can get your hands on Italian Easter eggs. Taking the humble chocolatey treat and giving the recipe a much-needed makeover, POCO has reimagined the special, stuffing the chocolate case with delicious flavours.
The secret recipe to the dessert selection is kept under-wraps, so much so that the company is yet to announce the flavours online. On Instagram, POCO is currently giving away six Italian Easter eggs to the person that can guess the flavours of their new collection simply from a sneak-preview shot.
The Italian Easter egg collection will feature alongside an Easter Feast box and will be available for collection from both stores all weekend long.
For those with a savoury palatte, there might not be Easter-themed pizza slices, but there’s plenty more authentic Sicilian treats to choose from to curb your cravings.
Pizza flavours here are imaginative. Think spicy Calabrian ‘Nduja sausage with roast peppers and mozzarella, pear and gorgonzola or even ham and potatoes (and by potatoes, we mean mini fries) across huge oblong slices of pizza; with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options to compliment the seemingly never-ending selection.
First opened in 2018 on Kirkstall Road by the team behind popular Italian kitchen Culto in Meanwood, POCO has been serving up different flavoured arancini, as well as dishes like focaccine, fried Sicilian calzone and Pizza Al Taglio and made become a Leeds foodie staple in the process.
Whether you’re looking for an Easter-themed lunchtime treat or just want a slice of pizza with a difference, you’re in for a treat.
From Friday 15 April – Monday 18 April 2022, boxes of these incredible treats will be available to collect, but with pre-ordering no longer an option, you’d better arrive early to avoid disappointment.
