Visit to Rosie's Diner, Leeds

I'd read somewhere on the internet about Rosie's Diner in Leeds and kept thinking we should go, so at the beginning of February we booked a table for 6pm on a Saturday night and headed over. We had some problems finding the place, and then had to wait for a bit once we did get there, but eventually we got seated just in front of the kitchen. The whole place has far fewer tables than I expected, so I wasn't surprised that people were being turned away. Definitely book a table online if you want to go!

I was hoping for a few different kinds of soda to choose from, so I was quite disappointed by the limited choices. I went for a cherry coke, though, which is one of my favourites. Lee just had a lemonade. I would have liked a milkshake but I knew it would fill me up to much!

We ordered a blooming onion to share to start with. It's an onion covered in batter and deep fried, served with a dipping sauce. It's a bit like onion rings but the batter isn't as thick. We both really enjoyed it, so I'm glad we got it. Then for mains Lee ordered a chicken burger with just cheese and salad and pickles I think. I ordered a Mexicana burger and was expecting it to be beef, but it turned out to be a chicken burger too. It was fine and I enjoyed it, but I wasn't expecting it. I had sweet potato fries which were yummy.

Finally, for dessert, Lee had a brownie ice cream sundae and I had a birthday cake sundae. It was yummy - bits of birthday cake, chocolate and raspberry syrups, and vanilla ice cream. Really yummy! In all, our bill was just over £50 and I felt like we'd eaten well for that. But the service was a bit lacking and I felt like the whole place was a bit gimmicky without much substance to back it up. If I was in Leeds and someone suggested going I'd probably go, but I don't think I'd specifically make the trip there, if that makes sense? But it was nice to spend the evening with Lee :)

You can actually eat inside the bus. While we were there, there was a birthday party in it, but it looked like fun

I loved this napkin dispenser, I would love one for home!

My sundae - the sprinkles were fun!
