I do love talking about food on my blog here once in a while. I would like to dedicate this month’s last post to my favourite desi restaurants in Leicester. Whether you love Indian food or are simply looking forward to trying a new cuisine or restaurant, these are the places for you!
If you love the simplicity and decadent flavors of South Indian food, head down to Kayal on Granby Street right next to Sainsbury’s. Kayal specializes in seafood and authentic Keralan backwater cuisine. The food is delicious and the prices quite affordable. If you happen to go there, try their calamari. They are mind blowing!
If you like vegetarian dishes, Bobby’s on Belgrave Road is the place for you. Bobby’s is one of the oldest restaurants of Leicester and has been serving mouth-watering Gujurati-style vegetarian food since 1976! They have a mini buffet during breakfast and lunch hours alongside the wide variety of dishes on their menu. And if you feel like having dessert after your main course, they have a wonderful range of sweets to choose from: peda, gulab jamun, laddoo, barfi…you name it, they have it!
And if you wish to dine like royalty, head over to Feast India (also on Belgrave Road) for a king-size lunch or dinner. Eat from six different Indian cuisines from a beautifully laid buffet. Don’t forget to check out the salad bar built into a rickshaw. It is placed right at the entrance and hard to miss! That has to be my favourite part of the restaurant.
If you happen to visit any or all of these restaurants, do let me know of your experience. Happy eating!
