Recently Little Leeds food tour celebrated its second birthday on Monday, and she shared her emotion on her official Facebook page ” A fantastic lunch @joyskitchenleeds on Monday. We celebrated Little Leeds Food Tour’s 2nd birthday on Monday with a Chinese lunch, and I was so impressed!
A huge menu with loads of dim sum options and unusual dishes alongside some more familiar ones. As well as the food being delicious, the portion sizes were massive ( making it a very good value for money). Steamed pork buns are always a winner in my eyes, and these were no different; the prawns & scallops dumplings were a great lighter option, and the ribs were so peppery and delicious.”
Sue Dodman, one of the customers who attended one of her food tours, recommended her to her friends and commented on Ellen’s Facebook page, ” Really enjoyed our tour with you, Ellen, and we’ve been back to some of the places you took us to and have also visited a couple of the places you recommended, and now some friends are coming on your tour soon”.
