A couple of weeks ago, both me and Jamie were very kindly invited down to Walkabout Leeds to come and check out some of their delicious Food and Drink, and after having a fantastic time stuffing our faces full of some really tasty Food and Drink, I thought that I would tell you all about it.
What is Walkabout Leeds?
Walkabout Leeds, is an Australian themed Sports Bar that offers a wide range of delicious food and drink, live Sport, and weekly entertainment in the heart of Leeds.
What happened when I visited Walkabout Leeds?
Once we had finally arrived in Leeds, and had wandered around for a little while, we eventually headed to Walkabout Leeds, which is located opposite the Merrion Centre on Woodhouse Lane in Leeds City Centre.
Once we had entered the massive and very modern-looking Beach themed Bar, we wandered over to the Bar area and were very kindly greeted by a really friendly barman, who said hi, and asked us if we were ok. We said hi back, and that we had a reservation for two, and after a couple of minutes of us all chatting, he showed us to a huge booth with some really comfy Leather chairs that was opposite a massive Window.
Then after a couple of minutes of us both chatting, we had a little look at the menu and tried to decide what to order before Jamie eventually went up to the Bar and placed our order. We then just sat and chatted for a couple more minutes before all of the delicious food and drink started to arrive.
What I had to eat and drink at Walkabout Leeds.
The first thing that I had to eat and drink was their Cherry Pop, Apple Sourz, Cherry Sourz, Grenadine, Apple Juice and Passion Fruit Puree, all topped off with a Cherry.
I absolutely loved this, as even though I was a little apprehensive that I wouldn’t like it because it contained Cherry and Apple Sourz, I thought that it tasted incredibly sweet and fruity and kind of reminded me of an alcoholic version of Tango Cherry.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Pina Colada, Malibu Coconut Rum, Pineapple Juice, Coconut Juice and Cream.
I actually really liked this, as even though I usually hate anything that tastes of Coconut, because it contained a lot more Pineapple Juice than I was expecting, I thought that it tasted extremely sweet and fruity rather than tasting of sickly sweet and creamy Coconut.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Sweetcorn Fritters with Maple Bacon, crispy Sweetcorn Fritters served with Bacon and Maple Syrup.
I really liked these, as even though I was kind of expecting them to taste a little bit bland, I thought that they tasted really nice, because as well as containing perfectly seasoned Sweetcorn and little shards of sweet and salty Bacon, they also had a very slight spicy kick to them that made them incredibly moreish. I also really liked how big they were, as I was kind of expecting them to be quite small, but they were actually really big, and were basically the size of small Golf Balls.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Crispy Chicken Wings with Barbecue Sauce, crispy Chicken Wings served with your choice of Sauce.
I absolutely loved these, as even though i’m usually a little bit fussy when it comes to Chicken Wings, I thought that they tasted delicious, as they were lightly crispy on the outside, soft and succulent in the middle, and had a very slight kick to them that made them really moreish. I also really liked the Barbecue Sauce that they came with, as it was sweet and sticky but also had a very slight spicy kick to it that proved rather difficult to stop eating.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Long Island Iced Tea, Smernoff Red Vodka, Cointreau, Gordan’s Gin, Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Bacardi Carta Blanca and Lime Juice, all topped off with Coca Cola Zero Sugar.
I wasn’t really a massive fan of this, as even though I love a Long Island Iced Tea and class it as one of my favourite alcoholic drinks, this just wasn’t to my liking. To me, even though a Long Island Ice Tea is full of alcohol, you shouldn’t really be able to taste one type of alcohol over the other, and unfortunately after I had taken my first sip all I could really taste was extremely strong neat alcohol, which wasn’t a particularly nice taste.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Mojito, Bacardi Carta Blanca, Lime Juice and Mint, all topped off with Soda Water.
I really liked this, as I again class a Mojito as being one of my favourite alcoholic drinks, and even though I usually get a little bit fussy when people mess around with the recipe, I actually rather liked it and thought that the addition of Soda Water was a great choice, as it took away some of the sharp bitter taste from the Lime that can sometimes totally ruin a Mojito.
The next thing that I had to eat and drink was their Great White Fish ‘N’ Chips, Battered Fish Fillet served with Sweet Potato Fries, Mushy Peas and Tartar Sauce.
I absolutely loved this, as Fish ‘N’ Chips probably has to be one of my favourite meals, and even though it’s incredibly easy to get wrong and totally ruin it, I thought that this was perfect, as the Fish was soft and flaky, the Batter was light and crispy and had just the right amount of seasoning to it, the Sweet Potato Fries were cooked brilliantly and had the perfect amount of crunchiness to them whilst still being slightly soft, and the Tartar Sauce was fresh and tangy without being too sour. The only bad thing about it was that I thought that the Mushy Peas could have done with a little bit more seasoning to them, as they did taste a little bit on the bland side.
The last and final thing that I had to eat and drink was their Freakshake, Chocolate Fudge Milkshake, Vanilla Ice Cream, Nutella Hazelnut Spread and Smarties, all topped off with a wedge of Chocolate Fudge Cake, a Double Chocolate Cookie, Candy Floss, Squirty Cream, Mini Marshmallows, Chocolate Sauce and Icing Sugar.
I absolutely loved this, as even though I hadn’t tried a Freakshake before and thought that it would taste incredibly sickly sweet, I actually really liked it, as I thought that The Vanilla Milkshake, Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream and Nutella Hazelnut Spread all blended together to create a gorgeous creamy White Chocolate Milkshake, and that the Chocolate Fudge Cake was incredibly decadent and moist, the Chocolate Chip Cookie was nice and chewy without being overly chewy, and the Candy Floss was extremely light and sweet without being too sweet.
Then after we had finally finished stuffing our faces full of all the delicious Food and Drink, we just sat, chatted and sipped our Drinks for a little while before we eventually decided that it was time to head off. So we said our thank you’s and goodbye’s to some of the really friendly staff members that we had met throughout our meal, and headed off back into Leeds to catch our Train.
