A taste of Japan with Issho

For the longest time, I feel as though Leeds has been calling out for a contemporary Japanese restaurant. I’m talking great sushi (sorry Yo! but you’re hardly haute cuisine), tasting menus and specially selected ingredients from a very talented chef. The latter comes in the form of Ben Orpwood, previously of Zuma and, the restaurant […]

Brunch at Sheaf Street Cafeteria, Leeds

Brunch is thebomb.com and if you disagree, this probs ain’t the place for you. I could happily eat brunch food for every meal and I love nothing more than spending my mornings in coffee shops, a plate of eggs benedict on one side and my laptop on the other (God bless free wifi). I’d heard […]

Bao Buns at Yuu Kitchen, London*

Whenever I’m dining out (a.k.a always, ‘cause have you tried my cooking??) I try to visit somewhere new and, ideally, independent.

Feeling lucky at Man’s Market, Leeds

After five years in Leeds, I still haven’t eaten everywhere.

When I visit new cities, one of the first things I think about is where we’re going to eat. If you’ve had a nosey at my Porto photo diary, you’ll know I didn’t do my usual obsessive level of planning, and so we arrived at the hotel at 9pm on a Friday with no reservations […]

Brunch dates at Love Rouge

I’m forever on the hunt for cute spots to while away the weekday mornings with my macbook and an iced latte or spend lazy sundays with my other half or catching up with my gal squad. If you ever need to find me, just look for good wifi and great Eggs Benedict. As it turns out, […]
