Korean Chicken Dinner at Mog’s


Mog’s has turned your classic fried chicken dinner on its head with a vegan twist. In this case, the chicken has been swapped out for crispy fried seitan and topped with a hot-as-heck Korean sauce, sesame seeds and spring onions to create a vibrant, meat-free alternative to the norm. Throw in a mountain of fries and a dollop of coleslaw for a meat-free treat that will certainly fill a hole.

Mog’s, 55 Kirkstall Lane, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3BE.

Beef Brisket Bao Bun at Little Bao Boy

Little Bao Boy

The delightfully soft and fluffy bao buns at Little Bao Boy are an absolute must-try and their beef brisket version is glorious. The meat is slathered in their secret-recipe sweet chilli marinade before being cooked low and slow until it’s tender enough to melt in your mouth. It’s stuffed into a bao bun with a generous helping of cucumber, spring onion and sesame seeds before lashings of sriracha mayo are applied.

Little Bao Boy, North Brewing Co. Leeds City Tap, 3 Sovereign Square, Sovereign Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 4BA.

Bundobust’s Indian street food is the stuff of legend and the Vada Pav is their shining light. This veggie burger is like no other as you’ll wrap your chops around a deep-fried ball of creamy mashed potato that’s seasoned with vibrant Indian spices. It’s sandwiched between a golden brioche bun before being smothered in their homemade red and green chutneys to give it that trademark kick.

Bundobust, 6 Mill Hill, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 5DQ.

The Greenhouse prides itself on its meat-free goodies, but it’s the indulgent stack of pancakes that you absolutely have to try. It comes with a pile of four light, fluffy and dairy-free pancakes just the way you want them. You can have them drenched in maple syrup and topped with seasonal fruits or covered in chocolate sauce with a sprinkling of nuts and oodles of their glorious Biscoff sauce.

The Greenhouse, 85e Town Street, Horsforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS18 5BP.

Nasi Lemak at Kuala Lumpur Cafe

Kuala Lumpa Cafe

Nesi Lemak is Malaysia’s national dish and the best place to try it is at Headingley’s Kuala Lumpur Cafe. You can look forward to a heaving bowl of fragrant coconut rice, which is drizzled in a traditional Malay chilli sauce that comes with a kick. It’s then paired with a delicious medley of peanuts, anchovies, boiled eggs and cucumber. Hungry? It goes perfectly with their Rendang Chicken Curry.

Kuala Lumpur Cafe, 2-4 Bennett Road, Headingley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 3HN.

Phoenix v2.0 Burger at Almost Famous

River Phoenix at Almost Famous

The Phoenix is an Almost Famous classic, but it’s just got even better. They spent lockdown tweaking every ingredient to make it punchier, juicier and crunchier. You’ll get two gloriously juicy beef patties topped with gooey cheese and crispy bacon. Then it’s sprinkled with shoestring onions, frazzles and red chillies before being covered in a trio of tasty homemade sauces.

Almost Famous, Alexander Court, Great George Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3AL.

Patty Smith’s isn’t just about burgers, oh no. Their Session Fries are one of the finest piles of chips you can feast on. Served on a massive tray, they’re twice-cooked with the skin left on so they’re perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft as a pillow inside. Throw on smoked pancetta, pecorino, fried rosemary, pickled chillies, Sriracha chilli mayo and rosemary sea salt for an epic feast that’s big enough to share – not that you’ll want to.

Patty Smith’s, Belgrave Music Hall, 1-1a Cross Belgrave Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 8JP.
