Sorry for the delay, this is the final post on our marathon summer trip to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester and our last destination, Leeds. Anyway, after about an hour bus journey from Manchester, we arrived in Leeds.
Leeds Kirkgate Market is one of the interesting places to visit in Leeds. It has more than 800 stalls in the market and it offers a wide array of specialist units selling. Learn more from their official website here.
Here are some of the foods which we managed to capture photos. The chicken satay was absolutely delicious. It was grilled to perfection and the meat was juicy and tender. There was peanut and chili sauce for dipping too. Perfect to go with the satay!
The dish on the left is the beef in coconut milk while the one on the right is the duck cooked in red curry. I did not try the beef in coconut milk as I do not take beef. The duck cooked in red curry was decent, not superb, but not too bad either.
The stir-fried egg noodles were rather tasty, flavourful and not too oily, simple and nice. Other dishes which we didn’t manage to capture good photos are the Thai papaya salad, Thai spicy vegetable, Thai spicy squid salad, stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts, vegetables in yellow curry, stir-fried pork in sweet and sour sauce, stir-fried mussels in chili and galangal, stir-fried tofu with bean sprouts and deep fried fish with mango sauce. For £8.95 per person, we think the buffet is worth it!
There is a separate counter where we can create our own Thai styled noodle. We were given a choice of vermicelli or flat rice noodles, chicken or beef soup, different types of meat, vegetables and seasonings. So this is our creation, a bowl of vermicelli noodles with chicken slices and chicken soup, garnished with scallions, crushed peanuts and chili flakes. It was simply delicious!
The mung beans in sweet syrup and coconut milk aka tao suan is suitable for people who has a sweet tooth. It might be overly sweet for some people, but it tasted quite good to me, very fragrant, milky and nice to finish off this satisfying lunch. For those who are not into desserts, they also serve various tropical fruits.
Food was definitely satisfying, service was remarkably good too. More information about this restaurant can be found on their website. I recalled visiting Thai Edge once in Cardiff, the buffet dinner that I had was a good one! Will definitely revisit this restaurant in the future. This post marks the end of our 7 days journey to the north of the UK, it was a memorable trip, can’t wait to travel again!
