As promised, here is the second part of my list with suggested restaurants. In case you haven’t read the 1st part click here to read it!
• Salvador Deli. This deli is a lovely place and the best choice for lunch after a morning full of lectures as it’s very close to campus. The paninis/sandwiches offered there are amazing and in case you prefer a proper lunch you can always try their pasta. All of them are absolutely delicious. I would also suggest to try their smoothies and fresh juice.
• The next three places on my list are devoted to the Asian cuisine. My favourite is Emerald Thai, a Thai restaurant. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Thai restaurants in Leicester which is a shame as Thailand has an amazing cuisine. I really love their different curries which are in very decent prices. I would recommend it to anyone.
• Chinese Cuisine on the other hand is very popular in Leicester. There are loads of Chinese restaurants and most of them offer a buffet. A very popular for its buffet, Chinese restaurant in Leicester is The real China. To be honest though, I do not really like it. What I would suggest instead is the Peking. Peking is Leicester’s oldest Chinese restaurant and is located in Charles Street. The quality of the food there and its value are both exceptional. It’s a value for money restaurant by all means!
• Finally, I couldn’t miss a reference to the Japanese cuisine and Little Tokyo. I don’t know much of the Japanese cuisine but this small restaurant located in Braunstone gate serves yummy food and in affordable prices. If you are not a friend of sushi you can always go there and have another dish like noodles which I have tried and are very good. Nonetheless, I urge you to try its sushi. At first I thought that sushi was made with raw fish only which I find disgusting but I was wrong. There are many types of sushi and I might not eat the sashimi but the maki (either with vegetables, meat or seafood) are amazing. Sushi is in general expensive and so don’t expect a cheap meal. However, it is much cheaper than Yo sushi which is very overpriced for its food quality.
Closing I would like to stress that this is just my opinion on the restaurants I’ve been to during my 3 years of study here in Leicester and you should take all these suggestions with a pinch of salt. There are dozens more restaurants in Leicester and people do not have the same taste on food.
Drop a comment to let me know what you think of these restaurants or to make a suggestion of a place you’ve been and enjoyed.
