I was looking through some photographs of food, and realised that in April when I was up in Leeds I had a few meals which I hadn’t blogged about.
Sometimes I write up the dining experiences I have on the same day, in the same week, or quite soon after that. Now and then I have food and then never get around to writing a blog post about it.
In April I was at a conference and was staying in the heart of Leeds. The previous night I had visited Rosa’s Thai and was looking for something different.
I had back in 2020 an excellent experience at Reds in Leeds, though that was further out than I wanted to walk, I wondered if there was a similar place in the heart of Leeds. I was pleased to see that there was a branch of Reds. I looked at the menu online and saw they had some deals. You had to book though. After booking I headed out to the branch.
I arrived and took my place at the table and looked over the menu. I went with the Wednesday Wings deal. I believe it may have changed since I was there in April, but this was ten wings for £3. I was told I needed to have pre-booked. I had, so I said I had, so I was allowed to have it. I had a drink and waited for my food.
I was expecting whole wings, mine weren’t whole wings.
The wings were nothing special, and for the main part of my meal I was a little disappointed. As they were small, there was very little meat on them. Flavour wise they were okay.
Alongside I had some sides of burnt ends, mac and cheese and onion rings.
The onion rings were supplemented with some fries.
The mac and cheese was nice, whilst the burnt ends were very tasty.
I had quite high expectations about this meal, but the reality of what I had meant that I was a little disappointed, even though the food itself was just okay.
