The other week I was invited down to The Pit in Leeds to try out their new menu. I have eaten here a couple of times before but I was excited to try the new menu.
I’m going to level with you, I’ve sat down to rite this review having just had my tea at home. This is proving to be a real struggle as the look of food is making me feel so full right now. Here goes..
I tried to get the best pictures I could but as the restaurant is called ‘The Pit’ a lot of the images came out too dark or blurry. I’m sure you get the idea though. We went for a non-alcoholic cocktail which was really refreshing. We decided to share two starters. We went for the Cajun chicken bites (£5.50) which came with a garlic and herb dip. The chicken in these was really succulent, so often with small portions of chicken you can find it to be quite dry but it wasn’t the case here.
We also decided to try the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Balls (£4.95) – these weren’t the best ones I’ve had but they were pretty tasty. Be warned they fill you up really quick; be sure to leave room for your main meal.
Rory went for the Crispy Cajun Chicken burger for his main meal while I had the vegetarian Enchilada. The burger itself was pretty huge, normally we would of probably just had the main meal but we had to try other things on the menu. Verdict on the burger was a big thumbs up. The chicken was succulent (just like the starter) and it meant we didn’t need to eat again the rest of the day.
My vegetarian enchilada was super tasty, it didn’t photograph very well (I blame the cheese) but I’d recommend going for the enchilada if you want some real comfort food.
Lastly we shared this popcorn/ice cream hybrid dessert. I liked the added touch of having the sauce in the syringe, it makes it all the mort entertaining. Overall I would recommend checking out The Pit, the menu has something for everyone and the service is great. Only trouble you’ll have is deciding what to pick…
