Trinity Kitchen - November/December 2016 Street Food Rotation

Trinity Kitchen is a great place to go with the pickiest of friends, everyone will find something they like here. The fact that it's forever changing with the rotation of the street food vans means that you can keep going back again and again and never getting bored.

So what does Trinity Kitchen have to offer us this month?

The Mitre Inn - Knaresborough

I love Knaresborough, no matter the season. In the summer and spring you can climb aboard a rowing boat and sail down the river, in the autumn the colours of the trees are truly mesmerising and in the winter it make for a good stroll in the brisk Yorkshire air with the peace of mind that there isn't a warm cosy pub too far away.

Unfortunately the day that we visited Knaresborough my map reading skills weren't on fleek and we ended up lost several times until it started raining and we decided to seek cover in a pub. I'd already carried out some research prior to our visit on places to eat (something I tend to do right unlike map reading) as we needed a pub that was dog friendly and didn't only serve Sunday lunches on a Sunday... because believe it or not, not everyone likes Sunday lunch.

Marmadukes - Sheffield

The more time I spend in Sheffield the more I warm to it.

Look hard enough you will find good independents in amongst the chains in every city. I often visit Sheffield due to work and this limits exploring to a 1.5 mile radius of the office during lunch time.

Despite these restrictions, as of late I have found a couple of gems hidden within this city. There are far more to be found and quite predominantly around the Nether Edge and Kelham Island regions of the city, unfortunately both are a little too far out of reach for my lunch time strolls, but if you should visit make a beeline for these areas.

Fazenda Christmas Lunch

If you haven’t booked your Christmas lunch or dinner yet with friends or colleagues you are severely lagging behind, I know people who started booking them January this year for December 2016. If you’re still undecided on where to go I offer to you an alternative, Fazenda, Christmas style.

Fazenda probably isn’t one of the first places that spring to mind when you think of Christmas, skewered steaks and Brazilian food isn’t particularly festive (in the UK). If you’re going to a few Christmas ‘do’s’ this year (you lucky thing) you might get a little bored of Turkey roast dinners and bland Christmas puddings, so why not sink your teeth in to some steak instead?
