Meet Braizin’ Squad who are flip reversing all the way to Chow Down

 Chow Down will host one of Leeds’ most anticipated food pop-ups this spring and summer. Having done a good stint taking over the Boot and Rally in Meanwood, they have become a favourite among local chefs and restaurateurs, and we agree that they serve up some of the best Sunday Roasts in the area. How did it all start? (hoping for a funny story)  Jord and I (Jamie) used to secretly meet up during lockdown to barbecue our hearts out because we missed working together. I must admit now that this was all above board and complied with rules at the time. It was almost like a hidden smoki ..read more

Cafe 164 at Munro House – End of an era
Leeds Indie Food

1y ago
It was with a little tear in our eyes we read the news about Cafe 164’s decision to move their Munro House operation to the suburbs.  After 11 years at Munro house, they are moving their headquarters to Headingley to fully focus all operations from there. A new chapter rather than an ending, but we’ll miss having them nearby.  That building holds so many memories for us at Leeds Indie Food, from the first whispers of a festival back in 2014 when Duke Studios was cardboard offices, to several  meetings in Cafe164 and numerous visits (a day) to Colours May Vary. From seeing the fi ..read more

Round-up of our fave new indie openings in 2022
Leeds Indie Food

The independent music scene has had a rough go of it over the past few years. Unfortunately, many small indies never recovered from Covid’s consequences, and now we’re facing a living crisis/electricity pricing shitstorm. It’s a tough world out there, our heart sinks at the loss of those who couldn’t make it but are hugely grateful for the food and love they provided. The after-effects are still present, as the more recent electricity crisis may take even more great indies away, yet there are some bright spots. Many people have used the last few years to launch brand-new ventures or make long ..read more

Stan: The OG fast food, Fish & Chips

As I said in my last post, I was reluctant to become the ‘Food Historian’ because I thought that it would be difficult for the younger end of the readership – i.e. the under 50s – to appreciate the way the world was before things we take for granted nowadays were in existence. This article calls for you to suspend all knowledge of life as it is today and come back with me to a Leeds alien from the ubercool city we know and love. Until the 1960s take-away outlets were extremely limited; no pizza, no curry, no burgers, no Pret A Manger, no KFC not even Chinese take-aways. There were cafes that w ..read more
