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 eight weeks, 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 Trinity Kitchen?
Every eight weeks they add a selection of new street vendors to add a little bit of variety, as well as ensuring that new businesses get the exposure that they deserve.
Here’s what vendors have arrived in September 2017, and what Trinity Kitchen say about them.
Baked In Bricks.
Cooking out of a converted Mini Cooper to deliver the best, and that’s official!, BBQ Chicken Tikka Wraps and wood-fired Neapolitan style Pizzas!
Meat lovers will be pleased to hear that Steak Out is coming back to Trinity Kitchen. Marinated with unique flavours and served sizzling steakhouse style on toasted Brioche Rolls, options range from The Texan with BBQ Sauce and Smoked Bacon, to The Eiffel with Garlic Mayonnaise and crispy Onions
Back by popular demand is Thai Khrim, whose fresh hand-crafted Thai Ice Creams served with a mountain of toppings has proved such a hit that they’re staying at Trinity Kitchen for the next two change overs.
Persian Kitchen are arriving at Trinity Kitchen for their first residency. Get those taste buds tingling with their delicious Middle Eastern cuisine!
Local favourite Sela Bar will also be serving up their famous Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with a range of toppings that will satisfy even the fussiest Cheese fans.
Chowdown Streatery will also be joining the line-up, offering American-style street food made with locally-sourced produce. Make sure you try out their popular Chilli Dog or their Chowdown Burger!
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.
Once we had walked into the massive open plan Food court, we were both very kindly greeted by Amy and Billy, who said hi, and asked us if we were Luke and Jamie. We said hi back, and that yes we were, and after having a quick chat for a minute or so, they very kindly gave us an envelope with a £30 voucher inside and said that everyone was sat at a table in the corner, and that we could just go over whenever we were ready. We then just wandered around for a couple more minutes and checked out a few of the other permanent residents of Trinity Kitchen including Pho, Pizza Luxe, and Tortilla, before eventually heading over to the table.
We then just sat and chatted with Amy and Billy for a couple more minutes, before Jamie went to get us both some food.
What I had to eat at Trinity Kitchen.
The first thing that I had to eat was a Chicken Tikka Wrap from Baked In Bricks, Barbecued Chicken Tikka, fresh Salad, Mint and Yoghurt Dip, all wrapped up in a Flatbread.
I absolutely loved this, as I thought that the Chicken was incredibly tender, and had a very mild spicy kick to it. I also really liked the Salad and Mint and Yoghurt Dip, as I thought that the fresh Tomatoes, Cucumber, and Mint and Yoghurt Dip added a nice refreshing coolness to the entire Wrap. But it was the Flatbread that really surprised me, as I thought that it would just be some basic Tortilla Wrap, but it was actually a very tasty floury Flatbread that added a nice balance to the crunchy Salad.
The next thing that I had to eat was The BuffaloBurger from Chowdown Streatery, Buffalo, Baby Gem Lettuce, Red Onion, Tomatoes, and Cheddar Cheese served on a Brioche Bun.
I absolutely loved this, as even though it contained Cheese, I thought that the Buffalo was extremely succulent and moist, that the Baby Gem Lettuce, Red Onion, and Tomatoes tasted incredibly fresh, and that the Bun was also nice and floury. But on the whole, if it didn’t contain Cheese, it would have been the perfect Burger.
The last and final thing that I had to eat was the Oreo and Hershey’s Chocolate Ice Cream Rolls from Thai Khrim, rolls of Oreo and Hershey’s Chocolate Ice Cream served with Whipped Cream and a Chocolate Brownie.
This was absolutely delicious, as even though the process of making the Ice Cream rolls had made the Ice Cream rather hard to eat and extremely messy, it had a really nice but strange texture to it. I also really liked the contrast of the Oreo and Hershey’s Chocolate, as with every spoon full, you got a tiny bit of crunch mixed with the soft sauce and the strange texture of the Ice Cream. I didn’t actually eat any of the Chocolate Brownie though, as Jamie had eaten it all before he brought it to the table, haha!
Then once we had finally finished stuffing our faces full of delicious food, we just sat and chatted with Amy and Billy for a good ten minutes or so, before eventually deciding that it was time to head off. So we said our thank you’s and goodbye’s to both Amy and Billy, and headed off back into Leeds to catch our Train.
I had an absolutely amazing time checking out all of the new street food vendors at Trinity Kitchen, and if you would like to find out more, including what vendors are arriving next, then you can find Trinity Kitchen online here.
