Friday has finally arrived and you deserve a treat, so why not get a proper feast delivered right to your door?

The weekend can’t come soon enough. No seriously. Don’t wait until tonight to start the good times, get a head start on the weekend by treating yourself to a seriously tasty lunch from one of Leeds’ best restaurants. You don’t even need to leave the office, because each and every one of these eateries is on Deliveroo and they’ll bring the feast to you.

Burgers and Bacon Bacon Fries

Almost Famous has earned itself a reputation for serving up burgers that are absolutely packed with flavour. Take the River Phoenix, for example. At first it sounds quite conventional – it’s a double burger with cheese, bacon and ketchup, but then they load on shoestring onions, frazzles, red chillies, Redneck BBQ sauce and Bacon Bacon mayo to create a lunchtime treat that will absolutely overload your senses (in a good way). Get it with Bacon Bacon Fries for the ultimate indulgent feast.

Venezuelan barbecue baby!

Caracas Grill may have moved, but they’re still serving up their usual menu of pepitos and parillas. It’s the latter that we’re obsessed with and it will make one hell of Friday lunch – order yourself a loaded bowl of meat, with a choice of succulent barbecued steak, chicken or sausage. Oh screw it, get all three, it’s Friday after all! Their parillas come with chips and the portions are generous, so you’ll be full right through to home time.

Everything American BBQ

We love BBQ, we love tapas – The Pit combines the two. You can get a little bit of everything with their small plates – think BBQ Ribs, Loaded Nachos smothered in pulled pork, Philly Fries and Chicken Wings (hot or not). Just add the sweet, sweet goodness of their Beer Battered Onion Rings, Mac ‘n’ Cheese and Sweet Potato Fries and you’ve got a lunch fit for a king… or quite possibly, the entire office.

Beef & black bean, with a twist

Want to impress your workmates? Then make Mans Market your Friday lunch order. It’s a Chinese restaurant, but they do things a little bit differently, so your Blackbean with Beef will come cooked to perfection and served in the shell of a pepper. Not only does it look good enough to eat, it tastes great too. You can load up on veggies too, with scrumptious sides like Broccoli, Chilli and Garlic or Village Greens (wok fried choi sum and cabbage in soy, yum).

The ultimate salad

Not all salads are equal and this one sits head and shoulders above the rest. The Green Papaya Salad at Thai Edge has all your favourite Asian flavours, wrapped up in a deliciously healthy bow. You’ve got papaya, tomatoes, French beans and carrot, mixed with with peanut, chilli, garlic and palm sugar, then tossed in their secret recipe sweet and spicy sauce. Couple it with chicken satay from the grill to create a protein packed lunch.
