Aplogies for just a list but I am going to be a tad controversial……………………we need to make the site more interesting because it’s getting a bit like a food diary…………..
Breakfast at The Wolseley www.thewolseley.com
Fried haggis with duck egg the best breakfast I’ve ever had! Fantastic building with heritage, place to be seen, EXCELLENT SERVICE OLD STYLE. £20 head.
Gaucho, Park Row, Leeds.
Guacho is a chain of upmarket Argentinian Steak Restaurants which have opened in Leeds. Loads of style, some money gone into this place!! Cow hide(Fresian) almost wall to wall. Got to say the starters were a tad disappointing
but the steaks were just fabulous. Weights, cuts all brought to your table so you can choose before cooking………
There were 5 blokes so we chose a mixed selection of 6 different cuts. Sublime!!
We stook to a middle of the road Pinot Noir but must admit lots of it. However their selection of special Malbecs means I’ll have to go back for a sample with D(plus anyone else who fancies it).
£368 for 5 but with a choice of tip or not to tip it was mean of me just to add 10% as the service was the best I’ve experienced in Leeds ever!
The Star Inn, Harome.
Bank Holiday Sunday and D, Chester and I decided to go to the meet D’s sister Jane in Hutton Le Hole(they were on hol). Country walk and a pint at the village pub, best pint of Black Sheep in a long while. We then went to Sandsend walked the beach in the drizzle and decided the old dog was tired and wouldn’t mind a kip in the back of the car whilst we had a quick lunch at The Star… One of their new staff is an old aqcuantance from Pudsey so we were found a table in the posh bit even though the place was rammed as usual, despite our protestations of being under dressed. 4 fab courses later which included the deli starter, 5 small portions from their own deli, monkfish for mains and an assiette which included a chocolate pot, rice pudding creme brulee, rhubarb sponge and a ginger ice cream..all delicious..a selection of 5 english cheeses to follow finished with coffee and a cognac fo D, it was getting dark so we set off back to Leeds with big smiles on our faces and Chester gently snoring in the back!
Cross Keys, Leeds.
Twice last month, once with my mate Andy and once with Luke. Great Pint the “Pint”. Pork Chops spot on and Fish and Chips perfect!
The Partridge, Kings Road, London.
Suppliers to Her Majesty no less. Super shop/deli/restaurant. Great to sit outside sip Chablis and watch the Sloanes!
The Terrace, Saltaire.
Best breakfast in West Yorkshire! D, Chester and I on a trip out to Ilkley stopped off. Sat outside on the main Bradford to Keighley road. Full English lots of toasts, brilliant!! Best still just £6.25 each.
Brasserie Blance, Soveriegn Street, Leeds.
D a and I were out with clients of mine. Food ok, company great, value ok. Enough said.
