#LIF18 - Knave’s Kitchen x Oporto

The wonderful Leeds Indie Food festival has returned this month and I am SO EXCITED! They hold a whole host of fantastic food events over the course of 18 days in May. Each year, more and more of the events have vegan options, or are entirely vegan. There is so much I want to try this year that I'm not sure how I'll fit it all in!

I started this year's festivities with an impromptu lunch time visit to one of the pop-up residencies that is happening during the festival - Knave's Kitchen x Oporto.

Knave's Kitchen provide 100% vegan junk food and they have a temporary residency at Oporto Bar on Call Lane in Leeds. They are serving food 12pm-4pm until the 28th May, so you have plenty of time to go check them out!


The event description:

The menu:


They also had some specials:


I went for the Mill Hill Special:

The 'Mill Hill' Special - Grilled Seitan, hummus, lettuce, pickles & extra chilli sauce bro'


This was soooo tasty. The seitan was a great texture and the combination of flavours really hit the spot. It felt healthy whilst simultaneously hitting that junk food craving. I was planning just to have this, but I couldn't leave without sampling the dessert...

Cookie Dough Balls (Peanut Butter & Choc) with Blueberry Yogurt sauce


DAMN, this was good. I hadn't realised that the cookie dough balls would be fried, so when this appeared I was very excited! They tasted great, were surprisingly non-greasy, and definitely felt like junk food!

This was my first time visiting Oporto, and I really enjoyed it. It had a lovely chilled out vibe, and a cute decor style. I will hopefully be back to try some more of this menu before the month is out!
