Starve yourself, skip breakfast or schedule the mother of all hangovers, just make sure you turn up hungry. The glutton’s paradise that is Belgrave Music Hall’s monthly Street Feast has been whipping Leeds into a foodie frenzy since it started up last year and the city’s appetite for Taiwanese steamed buns and salted caramel brownies is showing no sign of abating.
Good job too because it’ll take us at least four more visits to do the place justice.
Favourites so far include: Patty Smith’s mammoth burgers; cut-above pizza slices from local legends (and Belgrave kitchen regulars) Dough Boys; and Fish&’s ingenious bread-bowl mussels.
Don’t think you get to stop there, either. There are baked goods courtesy of Noisette Bakehouse to devour, craft beers to sample and, for those with kids in tow, a beautifully themed craft area by Pop Up & Play Co.
All that and we haven’t even mentioned the live music, films, spectacular roof terrace or the arts market you’ll feel the need to haul yourself round before you head home.
Belgrave Feast and Arts Market takes place Sat 13 - Sun 14 December, Belgrave Music Hall.
