Trinity Kitchen - May/June 2017 Street Food Line Up

This months’ rotation in Trinity Kitchen has to be one of their best line ups yet. Of course this is just my opinion and there are many of my favourites which are not present but there isn’t one place that I would shy away from or not be tempted by in this line up.

So what have you got to look forward to this time?

Chaart Cart

I’d heard good things about Chaart Cart and have previously drooled over their images on Instagram, Twitter and the like. Chaart Cart serves South Indian style street food that’s fresh and also very Instagramable.

They have a particularly good value meal deal where for £10 you can get a main, kale and onion bhajis and a drink. They don’t scrimp on portions either. On my first visit I opted for the Dhaal and on my second visit D opted for the chicken thigh chaat. The bhajis are generously sized although my first portion was perhaps a little over cooked (they were heaving and understaffed) but the second visit was much better and I could taste more of the spices used in the batter.

Thai Khrim

Dessert trucks never appear to be doing as well as the other street food vendors in Trinity Kitchen, this is not the case with Thai Khrim. I have only ever seen ice cream made this way on Facebook videos and so it was a delight to see Thai rolled ice cream being served in Leeds!

Essentially you pick a flavour (of which there are many including cheesecake, Eton mess, chocolate desserts and more) and your size (regular or large). The ingredients are then chopped up with cream on a cold metal plate, spread and rolled out into little… well rolls. You get a choice of two toppings but if you pay an extra 50p you can get unlimited toppings.

Here is a more sophisticated ice cream…

… and here is the one I made. Yes that is a jammy dodger, stop judging me.

Jenny’s Jerk Chicken

A permanent resident in Leeds Markets they are also making an appearance in Trinity, I am almost certain I visited them last time they were in Trinity too. If you’re in to BBQ then you will love Jenny’s Jerk Chicken and you can have it rain or shine. Jerk Chicken with rice and salad is £8 or you can get curry goat for a similar price too. Pop is £1 a can. Bargain for Trinity Kitchen.


One of Leeds’ favourite residents, we love them so much they decided to open a permanent residence under the dark arches on Neville Street. This time they’re back in Trinity Kitchen serving a mix of fried rice dishes.

What The Truck

A UK based truck that serves American inspired food. Expect to find loaded hot dogs, philly cheese steak sandwiches and truffle fries. I wasn’t a fan the last time I tried truffle fries, they were too greasy and sickly for me but these were a little more refined and much more palatable!

Have you been to see the latest rotation in Trinity Kitchen yet? Which is your favourite?
