A little while ago, both me and Jamie were very kindly invited down to Ox Club Leeds to come try out a few dishes from their Brunch menu, and after having a fantastic time stuffing our faces full of delicious food, I thought that I would tell you all about it.
What is Ox Club Leeds?
Ox Club Leeds is a contemporary solid fuel grill restaurant that showcases the best in Yorkshire produce, that’s located in the heart of Leeds.
What happened when I visited Ox Club Leeds.
After just managing to catch our train due to a train strike, we eventually made it into Leeds and instantly headed to Ox Club Leeds, which is located on The Headrow in Leeds.
Once we had both walked into the beautiful restaurant, we were very kindly greeted by Simon from I Like Press, who said hi, and showed us to a massive table in front of a huge window, that looked out onto the street. Then after a minute or two of us getting comfy and saying hi to everyone else at the table, including Lucinda , Natasha, and Lucy a really nice staff member came over and asked us what we would like to drink, and after a second or so of us both thinking we both ordered a mug of their English Breakfast Tea, which after a couple more minutes of us all chatting, eventually arrived.
After a couple more minutes of us all chatting and drinking our drinks, Simon brought the entire table to a quiet, and started to tell us all about Ox Club Leeds, including how they launched, what type of food they serve, and what was going to happen during our meal, including that we were going to try more or less everything on the Brunch menu, and that we would be rounding of the event with pancakes upstairs in the Beer Hall.
Then after Simon had finished talking, we all just chatted for a couple more minutes before all of the food started to arrive.
What I ate at Ox Club Leeds.
The first thing that I ate was their Korean Fried Chicken, which came with Rice, Pickled Cucumber, Kimchi, and a Crispy Egg.
I absolutely loved this, as the skin of the Chicken was incredibly crispy, whilst the Meat itself was soft and succulent. I also thought that the Rice was nice and fluffy whilst still having a little bit of a bite to it, that the Pickled Cucumber had a really nice sour tang to it, and that the Crispy Egg was the perfect addition to the plate as it was really nice and crispy, whilst still being gorgeously gooey in the middle. I’m still not entirely sure what Kimchi is, but I thought that it tasted really nice, and just had a really nice sour salty taste to it.
The next thing that I ate was their Flat Iron Steak and Cheddar Eggs, which came with Home Fries and Chipotle Jam.
I really liked the Flat Iron Steak, as I thought that it was brilliantly cooked, and just felt like Butter on my tongue, but I obviously didn’t have any of the Cheddar Eggs as I really don’t like Cheese. I also thought that the Home Fries were delicious, as they were nice and crispy on the outside, whilst still being nice and fluffy in the middle, with just the perfect amount of seasoning to them. I also really liked the Chipotle Jam, as I thought that it had a really nice subtile mild kick to it.
The next thing that I ate was their Cauliflower Shawarma, which came with Grilled Flatbread, Buttered Ras Al Hanout Eggs, Pomegranates, pine Nuts, and Yoghurt.
I wasn’t really a fan of the Cauliflower, as I thought that it was just a little bit too much on the hard side for me, and that it had a very strange taste to it, but I did however like the Grilled Flatbread, as I thought that it was nice and crispy around the edges, whilst still being fluffy in the middle. I also wasn’t a massive fan of the Buttered Ras Al Hanout Eggs, as they had a really strong kick to them, but I did think that the Pomegranate, Pine Nuts, and Yoghurt made them taste a little bit milder.
The next thing that I ate was their Bubble and Squeak, which came with Smoked Sausages, Cabbage, a Fried Duck Egg, and Chicken Gravy.
I’m not usually a fan of Bubble and Squeak, as I tend to find it a little on the bland side, but I absolutely loved this, and thought that they had cooked and seasoned it to perfection. I also really liked the Smoked Sausages and the Duck Egg, as I thought that the Sausages added a nice smokey taste to everything, whilst the Duck Egg had a gorgeously gooey yolk to it. I also really liked the Chicken Gravy, as I thought that it gave everything a really nice Meaty aftertaste.
The next thing that I ate was their Coconut French Toast, which came with Sriracha Maple Butter and Bacon
I was a little apprehensive about this, as i’m not the biggest fan of either Coconut or Sriracha, but I thought that the Coconut added a nice sweetness to the Toast, whilst the Sriracha added a very subtile kick to the sweetness of the Maple Butter. I also thought that the Bacon added a nice salty taste to everything, without removing any of the sweetness.
The last and final thing that I ate was their Ricotta Pancakes, which came with Honeycomb, Blueberries, Honey, and Creme Fraiche.
I absolutely loved these, as I thought that they were incredibly light and fluffy whilst still having a little bit of a bite to them. I was a little apprehensive about the Ricotta though, as i’m not the biggest fan of Ricotta, but I actually couldn’t taste it, and thought that it just made the Pancakes themselves feel much lighter and fluffier. I also loved the Honeycomb, Blueberries, and Honey, as I thought that the Honeycomb added a nice crunchy texture to everything, whilst the Blueberries added a nice bit of sourness to everything, and the Honey added a nice touch of sweetness to the sour Blueberries. I usually hate Creme Fraiche, but I couldn’t really taste it, and thought that it cut through the sweetness of the Honey beautifully.
After eating all of that delicious food, we were both pretty full, so we just sat and chatted with everyone else at the table, before finally deciding that it was time to head off, so we said our goodbye’s and thank you’s to all of the amazing staff and headed off back into Leeds.
I had an amazing time checking out all of the delicious food at Ox Club Leeds, and if you’re looking for the perfect place to have Brunch, I highly recommend that you check them out.
