Street-style dining at Leeds Trinity Kitchen
The city of Leeds is notorious for its extensive list of dining experiences. Not only do we have the average-joe chains like Zizzi's and Carluccio's, but we also have an abundance of unique restaurants, from authentic BBQ joints like Red's, to decadent Argentinean steak houses such as Gaucho's. Leeds has a lot to offer and this list is continually growing.
A recent addition to the buzzing dining scene of Leeds is of course Trinity Kitchen. Yes, the shopping centre already boasts a handful of restaurants like Yo! Sushi and Nandos, but Trinity Kitchen brings something entirely different to the table. When I first heard news of this restaurant I expected something like that of a spruced up cafeteria. However, I can assure you, it is much more than this.
Trinity Kitchen brings an exclusively alternative dining experience to the centre of Leeds. The restaurant, situated on the ground floor of the shopping centre, encloses a varied and unique selection of trendy fast-food cafes. This eclectic mix makes for a festival-like vibe, a casual dining experience with a profusion of delicious food on offer.
The Kitchen embraces food from a variety of cultures; from Vietnamese bistro Pho, to the delicious BBQ joint Chicago Rib Shack, there's no doubt you'll find something to tickle your taste buds. If you're not full from your Paneer wrap from Manjit's Kitchen, then don't be deflated. Feast your eyes upon The Marvelllous Tea and Cake Shed, or why not check out Magnificent Milkshake Co.. It is an interactive dining experience, one where you can dabble in flavours from around the world.
I can personally recommend Yu Kyu, that which is the first mobile Japanese tonkatsu food kitchen to overwhelm the streets of London, and is gracing the halls of Trinity Kitchen until the 23rd of February. I can specifically recommend their ingenious Chicken Katsu Curry Burger, an innovative Japanese twist on the generic chicken burger. Get it before it's gone!
