The Junction Leeds to open ‘The Junc Shed’ – a new street food kiosk with rotating traders

Designed to celebrate Leeds’ hospitality heroes.

Nestled in the heart of Whitehall on Monk Bridge Viaduct, The Junc Shed is a brand new street concept that will feed residents and the general public.

The Junc Shed is a kiosk which aims to welcome local hospitality businesses and offer something new and exciting for the people of Leeds.

And kicking off this exciting venture is the award-winning Koben Smokehouse with their new concept, “Alfonso’s Cuban Shack”.

And you guessed it, they’ll be serving up fantastic Cuban sandwiches using authentic recipes and top quality ingredients.

Alfonso’s will feature a breakfast menu and a lunchtime coffee and sandwich grab, open seven days a week from 7.30am to 5pm.

Designed to celebrate Leeds’ hospitality heroes, The Junc Shed is in a prime position on the new public park above the historic listed Monk Bridge viaduct.

The industrial heritage of the viaduct is reflected in The Junc Shed’s design, which utilises sustainable materials and is a nod to the viaduct’s previous life as an active railway. 

Johnathan Lloyd, General Manager at The Junction, stated “We’re really excited to bring the first of many exciting businesses to The Junction. The Junc Shed is the first space to open here but we’ve been having great conversations with a number of local indie operators about joining our neighbourhood by the water.

“We’re looking forward to Alfonso’s Cuban Shack bringing massive flavours to The Junc Shed and delivering something unique for both our residents and our neighbours here in Leeds.”

Luca / Sam Owners of Koben Smokehouse said: “This is a great opportunity for us and great that The Junction are supporting the next step of our growth. Why Cuban sandwiches? Our close friends in Miami, originally from Cuba & the Dominican passed us down their authentic Cubano recipe which includes mojo pork, smoked daily low & slow over applewood wood chips at our HQ in Holbeck on top of smoked ham, Swiss cheese, Thiccc sauce honey mustard, pickles & Cuban bread.

“We will also have locally brewed coffee by our pals at Chipp, hand-delivered daily and a light breakfast menu with bagels, local pastries & loads more.”

Opening this Friday 12 July, make sure you get yourself to The Junction and grab yourself a Cuban sarnie from the brand new Junc Shed.
