Ahhhh, Leeds. I love this place! I mentioned in my first post when we originally explored it how much I enjoyed the city. I love how it feels fairly clean, (for a big city!), the shopping is awesome, there’s tonnes of places to eat and drink – from the chains that we all know and love if you need something to rely on to awesome independent places that you can discover and love forever.
With the announcement that Nottingham might be getting its own street food market (yaaaas!), I thought it’d be sweet to round up some of the best street food markets and pop-ups in the UK right now. It’s safe to say that we’re definitely very excited to be getting our very own street food market because it’s something that we feel Notts has been missing for a while. We get the occasional pop-up here and there but nothing as monumental as some of the other street food markets in the UK’s other cities like Manchester and London! Here’s the run-down of the best out there at the moment…
This weekend I was invited down to Revolution Hockley to give their new street-food inspired ‘Revolution Kitchen’ menu a try. We all know ‘Vodka Revs’ as the place of 1000 different types of vodka and your average high-end pub food with 50% off Mondays. These guys are breaking out of the mould and actually giving their menu some extra thought. This new menu is based on the ‘foodie scenes of New York and San Francisco’ and we all know street-food is seriously on trend right now. I was excited to give it a go, and *spoiler alert* – I was really impressed!
A few weekends ago I headed ‘down London’, as my Nan would say, to see one of my gorgeous best friends in her new flat. We had the most food-fuelled couple of days and it was awesome. I wanted to share the places that we headed to with you guys just in case you’re heading to Brixton anytime soon! There were a million and one amazing looking cafes, pubs and bars that I wanted to try but these were the ones we ended up with and they were all delicious.
