Miah's Kitchen - Leeds

Oh Groupon why do I fall for you every time. I can't recall once where I have purchased a voucher and felt like I had a good meal and got my monies worth. A good deal on a hotel or a day out trying archery... But food? No. Perhaps it's time to call it quits.

The deal for this particular establishment was two courses and a glass of wine for two for £18. Seemed like a bargain not to be missed. 

We followed the T&Cs and booked ahead for a Wednesday evening after work at 6.15pm. We were greeted at the door and asked to wait in the seated area near the front of the restaurant whilst they prepared the table... We were the only people in the restaurant. We'd barely sat down when we were being asked to stand again so they could take us to our table.

Rolled and stuffed pork belly with sausage, apple and onion

**Warning this post contains a lot of pictures of MEAT**

For those of you who have read the 'About Breadsticklers' page of this blog you will know that I rarely post recipes. It's not that I dislike cooking or even that I don't know how to cook, I do, but when I'm not following a recipe I'm making it up as I go along. Making it up as you go along makes it fairly hard to write recipes.

However, on this occasion I have made an exception. When you're told that it is probably the best dish you've made to date and it fits in seasonally it seems almost selfish not to share.

Roxy Lanes - Leeds

Typing in to google 'Roxy Lanes' my phone ever so eloquently corrected it to 'Roxy Lames'.

Clearly google has sixth sense of sorts.

Roxy Lanes is the sister bar to Roxy Ball Rooms (that Ping pong and pool bar on commercial street). I had previously been invited to their press opening so I could sample the food. Only to find the kitchen wouldn't be opened for another few months. As a food blogger I had felt that this could have been notified to me in advance to save me wasting my time. 

Anyway I digress as this post is about Lanes not Ball Room.
