Turkish Delight, Leeds


My other half took me in to the depths of Leeds Market for lunch last week.

Those simple words “I don’t mind, you choose” led me past the fruit and veg, past the old lady manning the dusty greetings cards next to every type of button and wool you could imagine, and towards a quiet eastern European couple busying themselves in a 4ft by 4ft kitchen, walled with an off-white plastic kiosk.

Turkish Delight is one of the more random places I have sat down to eat lunch but I really enjoyed the food and the experience.

The menu is limited with a choice of about 5 dishes, but they vary from falafel wraps to lahmacun (dough topped with mince & onion). We tried nearly everything on the menu and our bill totalled under £10 (including 2 cans of Fanta!).

Leeds Kirkgate Market can be nothing short of a maze at the best of times, and Turkish Delight seems to be so exclusive it’s even off the map, but if you fancy an adventure into the Middle East for an hour on your lunch break, it is well worth finding!
