So here is my Leed eatery Bucket List that I WILL munch my way through.
One of my old work colleagues did nothing but rave on about this place and it sounds right up my street. There's cheese, wine and beer, deli boards full of meat - what more could you want? It's also ridiculously close to where I work so I really have no excuse. The only problem is that the SO isn't a big fan of cheese but he'd be happy as there's plenty of meat.
If you needed something beyond this rooftop bar to see why I NEED to go to the Belgrave Music Hall then we're not the same kind of person, but they also host a Street Feast on the second Saturday of every month. WHICH OBVIOUSLY SOUNDS AWESOME. I was gutted that I couldn't go to the Brazilian-themed one they had during the World Cup and will definitely be going there very soon. It's also on my way home so I have no excuse not to go.
Traditionally, I'm not a massive fan of Asian food that isn't Chinese. I know, I know. I have a nut allergy and HATE being THAT guy but they just use so much of it in their food and I get so anxious about it that I just avoid them altogether. However, Teppan 260 could be a game changer. It looks too good to miss. You even order things on iPads - how snazzy is that? You cook the food yourself, which seems to be the new 'in' thing but everything just looks delicious.
I have a love story for you. It started at this year's Leeds Food Festival and ended with an empty bowl of the most delicious thing I have ever eaten. I love jambalaya and I'm not afraid to admit it. However, I was such a star-crossed lover that I forgot to look at the name of the place and I'm scared that someone will serve me sub-standard jambalaya and RUIN EVERYTHING. Soul Kitchen looks like the ideal place to make my one-night stand into something a little more long term. I mean just look at it. NOM.
I'm starting to seriously believe that I may have been a sailor in a previous life as I'm attracted to anything slightly nautical like a magpie. I'm not usually so fickle with my food choices to be taken in by some attractive decor, but the Atlas had me at the name. Thankfully, it also looks like they do some incredible looking food, as well as having an extensive selection of whiskey.
Where are you wanting to try in Leeds? Have you been to any of these places?
P.S This is very much an in-progress Bucket List and I could easily add another ten+ places so be prepared for a part II
