When you start a blog, one of the repeated pieces of advice you’ll see is to find a niche and stick to it. Well, you want a niche? Takeaways that deliver to the LS13 area of Leeds. There’s a niche for you.
In lieu of being able to go out for dinner, Sam and I have been trying the takeaway offerings of nearby restaurants. It’s great to see so many businesses adapting during the lockdown, and supporting restaurants by ordering out means that getting a takeaway is basically a civic duty.
Anyway, here are the ones we’ve tried. You should check them out too.
Traditional Greek/Turkish restaurant based in Horsforth. You can order by phone (they’re not on Just Eat, Uber Eats, etc.) and they deliver to small radius or you can take out. They were cash only when we ordered, so you’ll need to make sure you’ve visited a cash machine in advance.
I had borek and fruity lamb, Sam had mussels and guvek (spicy beef). All decent and great value at £15 for two courses, plus the staff are insanely lovely.
Modern European/bistro style food from the same guys as Vice and Virtue. We were a bit sceptical as we came away from V&V slightly underwhelmed (sorryyy!), but that was a long time ago. This is now, and Feed is great.
Deep fried brie and jalapeño starters were fantastic, and mains of Thai green king prawns (pictured – their presentation is much better than my photography skills) and mushroom stroganof were solid. Massive portions, which meant leftovers for lunch the next day. Also well worth it for the doodles on the boxes.
Find them on Uber Eats.
Once Upon A Vine, Horsforth
Friendly wine and charcuterie. We’ve been visiting in person as they’re still open and convenient for us to visit after grocery shopping, but they also deliver. They’ve got a fantastic selection of wine and are doing cheese boards to take away. (By the way, has anyone else’s wine game been significantly improved by lockdown?)
Delivery seems pretty chill, phone them or message them on Facebook and they’ll advise you on what wine to get based on your tastes and budget.
I’ll update this as we try more. If you have any recommendations, let me know below.
