When it comes to eating and drinking, Leeds restaurants and cafes cater to every taste and budget. And The Skinny will help you find the right eaterie for a quick bite or a more formal meal, whatever you’re after.
The recently established Leeds Indie Food Festival is one of the biggest celebrations of independent food and drink in the UK, offering a wide range of events and taste sensations to try.
But no foodie will go hungry any day of the year with the range of Leeds restaurants and cafes. Examples include vegetarian with a Mexican theme at Roots and Fruits, Indian (Aagrah, Hansa’s and Tharavadu among others), the Brazilian Fazenda, and Asian cuisine at Sukhothai, Thai Sabai and Little Tokyo – and new restaurants and cafes are popping up all the time.
And that’s without even mentioning the unusual dining experience at The Man Behind the Curtain, a unique restaurant created by chef Michael O’Hare which earned Leeds a Michelin star in 2015.
If you’re looking for great food on a budget, Leeds has a lot of to offer on that front too, from units at Kirkgate Market including Cafe Moor to the rotating choice of food trucks at Trinity Kitchen (at Trinity Leeds). There are also many venues mixing fine food and beer, like Outlaws Yacht Club, Belgrave Music Hall, Friends of Ham and Nation of Shopkeepers.
With that amount of choice, The Skinny is here to help guide you to the right Leeds restaurant or cafe.
