Zaap – 22 Grand Arcade, Leeds, LS1 6PG
If you’ve ever been to Thailand you’ll know that the street food is spectacular, and the experience is one
that bombards all of your senses. Zaap aims to recreate that complete sensory experience in the heart
of Leeds… and we think that it’s done a damn fine job of it! The food is traditional, delicious and
plentiful, and there are always offers on to transport you from the streets of West Yorkshire to the
streets of Bangkok!
The Swine That Dines – 58 North St, Leeds, LS2 7PN
Just around the corner from Trafalgar Street car park is one of our favourite unusual restaurants in
Leeds. The Swine That Dines may not have the largest menu selection, but what it lacks in choice it more
than makes up for in quality. It’s unusual because of the interesting and novel ways it serves up food
that you’re familiar with, which feels both comforting, and exciting and new, all at the same time!
The Man Behind the Curtain – 68-78 Vicar Lane, Leeds, LS1 7JH
If fine dining with a difference is your thing, The Man Behind the Curtain in Vicar Lane has to be high on
your list of ‘must visit’ restaurants. With a Michelin star hanging proudly on the wall, this beautiful place
serves food as art as envisaged by brilliant chef Michael O’Hare. The tasting menu will blow your mind
with over a dozen tiny courses that’s like a trip around the world and back again… for your taste buds!
Bulgogi Grill – The Arena Quarter, 9 Merrion Way, Leeds, LS2 8BT
If the idea of grilling your food on a tabletop BBQ sounds like your kind of fun, Bulgogi Grill is perfect for
you! You’ll be served with a delicious range of Korean food for grilling – from seafood to tender meats –
that you wrap in lettuce leaves with rice and dips. It’s fun, challenging and memorable!
