It was my last day working in Leeds today. After four short but amazing months at Propaganda, I’m moving on to develop and manage the communications for a group of drinks brands (I know – dream job!). I’m sad to leave Leeds, firstly because I work with some lovely people, and secondly – because lunch time is always fun. There’s always somewhere new to go. Whilst I haven’t explored everywhere I hoped to (with the price of my train ticket, it has been kind of impossible), I have explored some gems. Here’s are the three lunch time haunts I’m going to miss:
Take a thriving market, some succulent chicken, delicious sauces and a wrap and you have the ideal lunch from Cafe Moor. Their chicken wrap is a dream, as is their veggie option of falafel. We decided to eat here because it was there was always a big queue – that’s a good sign right? I haven’t looked back! I had it for my last Leeds lunch today.
I only tried Primos for the first time yesterday, and I’m gutted I didn’t discover it until my final week. Based in the Corn Exchange their hot dogs are famous in Leeds, and I can see why. I had the Mexicana (without jalapenos) – a beef frankfurter served in a white roll with Monterey Jack cheese, salsa, soured cream and guacamole! It was amazing – next time I’m in Leeds, I’m heading there again.
The first time I had BBQ reds was at Beacons Festival earlier this year. The queue was consistently huge, which is why we didn’t try anything until the last day – and what I mistake that was! Known for their ‘Man v Food’ style dishes, I had the pulled pork sandwich with ‘slaw’ and applesauce! Bloody good – I’ll let the picture do the talking.
The Leeds food scene is thriving – I may not work there anymore, but I’ll be back to
visit eat there soon!
