Dishoom, Covent Garden

Dishoom opened up in Kings Cross when I was living in London a few years ago. Since then, it seems to have ballooned in popularity, opening up branches across the capital and even expanding in to Edinburgh. It’s been sat on my list of restaurants to visit for a while. I managed to check out […]

Hansa’s, Leeds

Hansa’s sits at the top end of Leeds City Centre on North Street, next to The Reliance pub. It’s a fairly small, family run restaurant that focusses on food from Gujarat, a western region of India. I’d heard good things about this place in the past, and seen that it had won a few awards, […]

Café Moor, Leeds

Leeds’ Kirgkate Market has some serious treats to offer! While I’m not convinced the new food court is the best use of space, there are some absolute gems dotted around the huge amount of stalls. You can’t miss Café Moor. Not only does it have a sweet spot right in front of the North East […]

Pizza Fella, Leeds

A bit of a short post for once. I went to Leeds’ newest pizza place at the weekend, Pizza Fella. These guys started off serving wood-fired pizza out of a van in 2014 and have set up a permanent residence in Albion Street at the top of Leeds city centre. I’ll be honest, I’d had […]

Yard and Coop, Manchester

I’ve been to Yard and Coop a couple of times now. The first time I was wrestling with the worst hangover of 2016, the second time I was looking to line my stomach before a friend’s birthday at Funkademia in Manchester. It was successful in helping me through both scenarios. The first, thanks to its […]
