Burger off!! I've heard the voices of (twitter) Leeds cry every time another new place opened serving burgers. However when Meat Liquor announced that their first venture north would be in Leeds it changed. There was a buzzing and hum of excitement "the people who started it all are coming to Leeds" it was reported. Move aside Manchester now who is the food capital of the north?

It cost us £9 for the car to enter the car park for the day and then there were no further fees to pay to enter the grounds of the abbey. After a wander down to the abbey we felt a bit peckish so decided to head back towards the car park (which is located next to the post office/gift shop) and try out the café we had seen there.

I visited Botanist a couple of weeks after Trinity opened last year but have only just gotten around to editing all my drafts and creating readable sentences from my hastily written reviews! So please bear in mind these were from last year and the menu may have changed.

Fuji Hiro has come up in many conversations I have had about where to get good noodles or a cheap but great meal. I've tried to go the odd couple of nights in the past but have been unable to dine as the place was too full.

Not all chains are reliable.
Carluccio's is a firm favourite of mine for a Friday treat of coffee and pastry to take away. This is where it should end. My first ever blog post was written about Carluccio's when it first opened on Greek Street in Leeds three years ago. It wasn't a great experience and I have never returned for a sit down meal.

Finding somewhere within Leeds to eat on a Saturday evening without prebooking at least a week ahead is becoming harder and harder. This combined with a longing desire to constantly get out of the city on a weekend brought us to Scott's Arms in Sicklinghall, Wetherby.

Whilst in Edinburgh I noticed that another food blogger happened to be visiting Edinburgh too. Richard who writes Them Apples posted a picture on Instagram of a coffee place I had walked past the day before. Interested I asked him if it was a place he would recommend.
So on our final day in Edinburgh a very tired D and me decided to pay a visit.

I have now learnt that Bon Vivant have a number of different places dotted around Edinburgh, clearly a popular place. I like the sound of their concept which is to create an informal dining scene like that you find on the continent with great food and great drink.

Just off the Royal Mile on a curved road up a slopping hill lies Southern Cross Cafe, or as it's now abbreviated to 'SX Cafe'.
It's near the Royal Mile, it gets the footfall, it doesn't really need to put the effort in to make people return as it will get more than enough one time visitors to keep it going.

The Dogs on Hanover Street in Edinburgh was recommended many times over on twitter when I asked where I should go when visiting for the first time. With so many notifications coming through recommending them it would be rude not to book a visit.
We booked a table early (6pm) Sunday evening knowing that we had an evening full of shows to see at The Fringe Festival. There was no problem booking a table even during this busy period. I was surprised as I left it quite late too, two weeks prior to our visit.
