Almost Famous Burgers, Leeds

October 9, 2016

Leeds is quickly becoming the place to be. I’m literally finding it so hard to stay away from Leeds at the moment. The food, shopping and just everything is on point. Later this month will see the opening of Victoria Gate where the brand new John Lewis will be and many more stores such as Neom (YES!), & Other Stories, Anthropology and Maje. The past couple of years has seen the growth in shopping with the Trinity Shopping Centre and with that came along a whole host of amazing bars and restaurants. Almost Famous Burgers been one of them. I believe it’s been open a couple of years now  but I’ve not been – that is until a couple of weeks ago.

Almost Famous is tucked away on Great George Street, just around the corner from The Light and Millennium Square. You could probably walk past and not know it was there as there aren’t many signs. The decor in Almost Famous is totally crazy with a massive gorilla in the entrance and graffiti on the walls. My friend Jorden and I were seated right away and we spent forever pondering over the wackiest menu. I’ll leave a link to the online menu here as it’ll blow your mind.

After nearly been tempted by the cocktails menu; especially the boozy shakes, I went for the Famous Cherryade Mocktail. It was pretty yummy but on the pricey side at £3.50 for basically cherry pop. For the main event, I went for the Awesome Frickin’ Chicken which was an amazing buttermilk chicken burger. I think my friend went for the River Pheonix burger with bacon, shoestring onions and BBQ sauce – It looked pretty epic.

This is where things got interesting. Now, I’m not usually one to pick the most outlandish creation on the menu but today was the day. I went for Magic Waffle Fries which is basically potato waffle with bacon, maple syrup and poppin’ candy. It sounds like a rather crazy combination but it works amazingly. The portions were pretty huge so sharing fries might be a good idea.

The menu is so unique yet delicious and I’ll certainly be back very soon. I’d say it’s slightly on the pricey side but the whole experience and unique menu makes it 100% worth it. Almost Famous also have two restaurants in Manchester and one in Liverpool and I’d definitely recommend a visit.
