Chips, cheese and gravy is a proper northern special, no argument there.
We thought we’d perfected the dish, but then we tried poutine. Our familiar takeaway’s Canadian cousin, this dish of french fries, gravy and cheese curds may have originated in Quebec but it’s become a solid UK favourite in recent years.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you’ve been sorely missing out. Now is your chance, because Huddersfield poutine heroes Spuds & Bro’s have just revealed their Leeds pop-up dates for May and you won’t want to miss them.
Serving up loaded versions with different toppings, they cater to all diets – veggies and vegans included.
Choices include ‘the traditional with mozzarella, homemade gravy and cheese curds, ‘the humdinger’ with chicken, smoked bacon, halloumi and mushrooms, and ‘the vegan one’ made with vegan cheese, shawarma strips, fresh tomato, cucumber and sour cream with chives.
They’re often seen serving from their food truck on Central Square at lunchtime, normally only appearing for a few hours, which makes them easy to miss.
They’ll be back there on Tuesday 11th & 25th between 12-2pm, worth taking note of if you’re around that part of town in the week.
The popular poutine masters will also be doing a one night only pop-up at Left Bank from 5pm until late on Friday, 14th May. From what we understand, Hyde Park’s students are already marking off the date in their calendars.
Further dates have been confirmed at Leeds Dock, North Bar Social, Seven Arts as well as some locations further afield.
The popular street food traders have also confirmed they’ll be reopening their Huddersfield site on May 17th.
A full list of confirmed Leeds dates has been posted to their Facebook page,
