A Taste of Mexico at Tortilla

The departure of KFC from Leeds Train Station paves the way for a new culinary player to tantalize the taste buds of commuters—Tortilla. Already a familiar name in Trinity Kitchen, Tortilla is set to elevate the station’s dining scene with its authentic Mexican fare. Specializing in generously stuffed burritos brimming with a choice of rice, vegetables, meats, and an array of salsas, Tortilla ensures that flavor is at the forefront of each meal. Not to be overlooked, their salads and tacos also stand as testaments to the brand’s commitment to freshness and zest. Anticipation is high for Tortilla to begin serving its Mexican delights later this year, promising to add a burst of flavor to the daily hustle and bustle of Leeds Station.

Honi Poke Brings Hawaiian Flavors to Leeds

The city center of Leeds is on the cusp of embracing the poke bowl trend with the introduction of Honi Poke, a dedicated eatery that celebrates the Hawaiian culinary staple. Combining proteins like raw fish with an assortment of vibrant toppings such as spring onions, edamame beans, pickled cucumber, sesame seeds, and crispy onions, poke bowls are a symphony of health and taste. Honi Poke, already a sensation with 17 locations in London and one in Manchester, will extend its reach to Leeds, offering signature bowls featuring yellowfin tuna, Scottish salmon, as well as chicken and vegetarian options. For those feeling adventurous, the establishment also encourages patrons to craft their own personalized bowls. Positioned in Trinity Leeds, the opening of Honi Poke later this year is highly anticipated by health-conscious and flavor-seeking individuals alike.

Fresh and Convenient with Fruit & Veg On the Go

Transitioning from a mobile service to a physical storefront, Fruit & Veg On the Go is set to expand its operations with a new shop on Marsh Street in Rothwell. Having successfully operated as a delivery service offering various sizes of fruit and vegetable bags to Leeds’ suburbs, the brand is now elevating its presence with a brick-and-mortar location. Patrons will have the opportunity to hand-pick their produce or opt for the convenience of pre-packed selections, with the added bonus of an in-house smoothie bar. This summer, the establishment aims to become a go-to destination for those seeking fresh, healthy, and convenient food options.

Italian cuisine aficionados can revel in the imminent opening of Caffe Brigante, a new independent Italian cafe and bar gracing Hunslet Road on the South Bank. Just a stone’s throw from The Tetley, Caffe Brigante is set to infuse the area with the essence of Mediterranean living. Patrons can look forward to high-quality coffee, an array of homemade panini, and a delectable selection of Italian desserts, including five distinct variations of homemade tiramisu. The cafe’s opening, slated for later this year, has been eagerly awaited for over a year, as it promises to deliver an authentic taste of Italy to the heart of Leeds.

The Return of Wilko to Birstall Retail Park

In a welcome turn of events, Wilko is poised to make a triumphant comeback to Leeds.
