I had been meaning to go to Kuala Lumpur Café, the unassuming Malaysian restaurant located in the heart of Headingley, since it opened its doors, so last week was my first visit. The cosy restaurant and friendly staff made the evening enjoyable and the unusual flavours and textures of Malaysian food on offer created an […] Leeds Living …


Lupes Cantina: Mexican Dining in Leeds

After years of saying I wanted to go to Lupes Cantina, I finally made a trip over to the family-run Mexican restaurant on Cardigan Road this weekend with my foodie friend.  After living in the deep south in the US, I was spoilt by incredible Mexican food on a near-daily basis, so it was high […] Leeds Living …


Blue Sakura – All you can eat sushi

As a lover of fresh Asian flavours and picky dishes, sushi is up there with my favourite food. Blue Sakura in Leeds offers all you can eat sushi, which seemed like heaven to me, but at £30 per person, I had always considered it too expensive to try.

Chow Down 2020 – Too Good to Miss!

This is a ‘must go to’ if you live in or around Leeds this summer. This was my first time at the food festival and it should be a prioritised day out for family, friends – and even your dogs!  Chow Down is set up on the outskirts of town and in the coolest spot […]

In conversation with Mina Kashmir of Cinnammmm

Living in the midst of a global pandemic is a challenging time for us all, but there are some people who are still able to realise their dreams. A knock on the door last month from neighbour Mina Kashmir resulted in us enjoying a delicious box of homemade Cinnamon Bons, along with the news that […]

Chophaus Has Re-opened – Better Than Ever

This week I was invited to go to Chophaus in Oakwood to try their new summer menu. I took a friend, but not before we had browsed Chophaus’ menu online, enough to tempt even the reluctant post-lockdowners to venture out once again. I cycled to the restaurant and was glad to see a bike rack […]
