Yo! Sushi - Trinity Leeds

Sometimes in life it really is who you know rather than what you know.

I was absolutely delighted when Mystical Aromatic Lady (MAL) invited me to be her plus one for the preview night at Yo! Sushi before it and the whole of Trinity Leeds opens to the public on 21st March 2013.

We arrived at the entrance behind Marks and Spencer's gave our names and were led into Trinity Leeds, both of us were extremely excited about what it would be like inside; what shops and restaurants there would be. The lifts and escalators were not in working order so we were led to the back stairs up to the restaurant floor of Trinity Leeds.

Kopi! KOPI! - A review about coffee

For my first guest blogger I would like to welcome TDS... 

Sometimes, life drops something into your lap for free. Free of charge, free of effort. My most recent slice of fortune came in the form of a black and yellow pouch of coffee. Breadstickler received a sample of Kopi coffee, a new monthly coffee subscription service, and had the good grace to share it with me (read: gave it to me as she doesn't actually like coffee…)

Rib Shakk - Leeds

Please note this establishment has now closed. 

I enjoyed Rib Shakk so much last time I couldn't wait to go back.

It's a great place to go on a Saturday afternoon, as long as Anthony's is not hosting a wedding and thus the whole place closed off... it's tres annoying. 

This time I decided to branch out and not get the standard rack of ribs. Instead I decided upon a Rib Burger. 

We were informed on this occasion that they had run out of piri piri sauce, a little disappointed I decided to go for the San Diego Style sauce. The rib burgers are basically just the meat pulled off of the bone and then placed in a burger bun, perfect if you don't like getting too messy (there is still a bit of mess to be had as it's quite hard to keep rib meat in a bun).

Henry's - Leeds

Please note this establishment has now closed. 

Just a short post about Henry's on Greek Street.

I wasn't too familiar with Henry's until I started working in the area, it wasn't somewhere that ever caught my eye or fancy. They do tend to have a lot of offers on and if you're lucky you can grab a pamphlet full of vouchers every so often to get a bottle of house wine for £9.95.

This occasion was drinks after work with the (sex and the city) girls who shall be referred to as Samantha, Charlotte and Carrie (because I have never met anyone who wants to be Miranda).
