A couple of weeks ago, both me and Jamie were very kindly invited down to Trinity Kitchen to come and check out some of the new Street Food Vendors that would be in residency for the next seven weeks, and after having a fantastic time stuffing our Faces full of all of the delicious Food, I thought that I would tell you all about it.
What is Trinity Kitchen?
Trinity Kitchen, is an open-plan food court in Trinity Leeds, that serves a wide range of different cuisines from around the world, including American, Vietnamese, and Mexican. Every seven weeks they add a selection of new street food vendors to add a little bit of variety, as well as ensuring that new businesses get the exposure that they deserve.
Here’s what Street Food Vendors have arrived in April 2019 and what Trinity Kitchen say about them.
Original Fry Up Material.
Original Fry Up Material has been winning fans over the years with its All-Day Breakfast Menu. Paying their respects to the best elements of a British Caff, they offer Breakfast classics, diner-style Cheeseburgers and their popular Brekkie Muffin.
Feral Food Store.
Feral Food Store was voted by BuzzFeed as one of the ‘Top 12 Festival Foods To Try Before You Die’ and will be bringing delicious Deep-Fried Vegan dishes to Trinity Kitchen, such as Roast Cauliflower Steak Burgers, Buffalo Smoked Tofu Wings and Southern Fried Seitan Burgers with Tomato and Pomegranate Salsa. These dishes are designed to make the most ardent Meat eater think twice.
Shoot The Bull.
Multi award-winning Shoot The Bull is returning to Trinity Kitchen, offering a Michelin-style Gastro Street Food selection. Diners can expect delectable delights such as their Crayfish Mac ‘n’ Cheese topped with Smoked Bacon foam and Tomato Gel, Risotto Balls topped with crumbed Goats’ Cheese and Truffle Powder, and Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches with Steak Butter.
Nan’s Van is the place to stop if you have a Sweet Tooth, serving homemade Waffles and Brownies -including their signature ‘Fun Day Sundae’, which includes three warm Waffles, a double scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Sauce, Cream and Rainbow Drops. Those over 18 years old can also enhance their sweet experience by adding a delicious Dessert Cocktail.
Little Tractor uses quality Farm assured Meats to produce a range of quality dishes. Whether customers choose its Four-Signature Steak or it’s Slow Cooked Brisket in their Secret Sauce, it is seriously going to be some beefy business.
Po` Boys combines flavours of the Deep South in epic Southern-Style Sub Sandwiches, with fillings including Cajun-Spiced Chicken and Blackened Shrimp, along with ‘Debris Fries, Cajun-Spiced Chips topped with Pulled Beef and Gravy.
What happened when I visited Trinity Kitchen.
Once we had finally arrived in Leeds, and had wandered around for a little while, we eventually headed to Trinity Kitchen, which is located on the top floor of Trinity Leeds on Albion Street in Leeds City Centre.
Then once we had walked into the massive open-plan Food Court, we were very kindly greeted by Juliette, one of the really friendly PR Team that had invited us, who said hi, and asked us if we were ok. We said hi back, and that yes we were, and after a couple of minutes of us all chatting, she handed us our Gift Card and said that she hoped that we enjoyed our Food.
Then after we had wandered around for a couple of minutes and had found ourselves a Table in a really quiet corner, we just sat and chatted for a couple of minutes before Jamie went and got us both some food from some of the delicious smelling Street Food Vendors that were dotted around the Room.
What I had to eat when I visited Trinity Kitchen.
The first thing that I had to eat was the Brekkie Muffin from Original Fry Up Material, Sausage, Streaky Bacon, and a Fried Egg served in a soft English Muffin.
I absolutely loved this, as Breakfast probably has to be my favourite meal of the day, and even though it was technically a Fried Breakfast inside a soft English Muffin, I thought that it had a very slight smokey taste to it that made it taste like it had been cooked on a Barbecue. I also thought that the Sausage was soft and meaty, that the Bacon was really crispy but still slightly chewy, and that the Egg was cooked to perfection as it had a runny Yolk without leaking everywhere whenever I bit into it.
The next thing that I had to eat was the Cajon-Spiced Chicken Sub from Po“ Boys, Cajun-Spiced marinated Chicken, Jalapenos, Cucumber, and Mustard served in a Toasted Sub Roll.
I really liked this, as even though I thought that it had a very southern and spicy feel to it, because they had included Mustard it had a very New York Deli taste to it that would be great when you want something quick but incredibly tasty for Lunch. I also thought that the Chicken was incredibly soft and succulent whilst also having an ever so slightly spicy kick to it, that the Sub Roll was crusty and really chewy, and that the Jalapenos and Cucumbers were extremely fresh.
The next thing that I had to eat was the Beef Brisket Sandwich with Seasoned Fries from Little Tractor, Beef marinated in Honey, Balsamic Vinegar and Barbecue Sauce served in a soft Bread Roll.
I absolutely loved this and could have probably eaten it at least another five times, as even though it was a little bit messy to eat, it was absolutely to die for. I also thought that the Beef was cooked to perfection as it was incredibly moist whilst still having a little bit of a bite to it, that the Bread was really soft and floury, that the Sauce was sweet whilst still also being sour at the same time, and that the Seasoned Fries were crispy on the outside whilst still being light and fluffy in the middle.
The last and final thing that I had to eat was the Choco-nana Blaster Waffles from Nan’s Van, Waffles, sliced Bananas, hot Fudge Sauce and Chocolate Chips.
I really liked these, as I thought that they were the perfect thing to finish off my meal with. I also thought that the Waffles were crispy without being too crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle, that the Chocolate Chips added an extra bit of sweetness to the light and fluffy Waffles, and that the Bananas added a nice bit of fruitiness to everything that cut through all of the sweetness from the Waffles and Chocolate Chips brilliantly.
Then once we had finally finished stuffing our Faces full of all of the delicious Food, we just sat and chatted for a couple of minutes before we decided that it was time to head off. So we said our thank you’s and goodbye’s to Juliette and the rest of the PR Team that we had met throughout the evening, and headed off back into Leeds to catch our Train.
