The World Feast street food market on Briggate in Leeds city centre was on this weekend. We had a look around all the stalls and there was a good selection out today. Barbecue staples from the Reds team, Jerk chicken from the Carribean Man, Boreks at Musti’s Kitchen were some examples of what was on offer. Not all the usual proprietors were out on Briggate today though, I think some were involved in the Leeds Waterfront festival, e.g. Fish&. At the time I fancied a tasty crepe, so asked for a Mellow Yellow from The Crepe Escape. This is a crepe filled with lemon curd, which I’d never had before, but as I’m a big fan of lemon curd I thought why not!!
Oh it was LOVELY…freshly made in front of our eyes it was thin, but not too thin so it didn’t collapse. It had the perfect ratio of crispness:doughiness, and for me a prerequisite of a great crepe is the crisp frilly edge, it certainly ticked this box. Filled with a good dollop of lemon curd which went slightly runny from the heat of the crepe. I really could have eaten another one straight away!!!
Such a tasty bargain for just £3!!!
Next up was I Spice, from Hebden Bridge had pakoras, onion bhaji and homemade chutneys on sale.
A pot of mixed pakora was just £3.50, with onion bhaji, potato pakora and cauliflower pakora with yoghurt and their homemade hot Yorkshire root chutney. Everything was perfectly cooked, very flavoursome with the right amount of spice, the chutney was hot as expected so the cooling yoghurt was a very welcome addition.
Another reason why we went was because their products are gluten free, which is a must for my partner in crime! They were excellent value and the little delights really did not last very long at all. They have a regular stall at Kirkstall Deli Market at Kirkstall Abbey, held on the last weekend of every month and are also working with Handpicked Hall in the Grand Arcade to sell their products too.
Yes, don’t get me wrong I love going out for meals, but for street food this yummy at these bargainous prices, come on you’ve got to try them out, you’ll be pleased you did!!The Crepe Escape @Crepe_Escape I Spice 07722 630 733 email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
