Inside the new Trinity Kitchen food trucks: summer 2022

There’s some newbies, returning old favourites and some are staying put completely.

Trinity Kitchen has confirmed that the street food vendors will be swapping over for the summer season. From Wednesday 25 May 2022 for the next nine weeks, you’ll be able to find flavours from around the world from some of Leeds’ finest independents.

Mans Market is having its debut over at Trinity Kitchen- and we couldn’t be more excited to see their modern Hong Kong menu over in the converted J7 food truck.

Taking the menu from their Leeds’ city centre restaurant on the road, foodies can find fluffy, steamed bao buns with a selection of different fillings to choose from, as well as a variety of Chinese-style loaded fries.

Shouk! are staying right where they are and will remain in the horse trailer for another nine weeks. Their Middle Eastern cuisine includes refreshing vegan and vegetarian friendly meals, with vegan chicken shawarma, falafel pieces and halloumi available in wrap or salad-style bowls- each of which make the perfect light summertime lunch.

Their most popular dish, sabich, will also remain on the menu. Made with fluffy steamed pita bread, crispy fried aubergine, egg, potato, tahini, amba and salad, this is going to be a lunchtime staple once the sun comes out.

Those in attendance of any vegan markets in Leeds or stopping at Chow Down’s winter food village will recognise these food vendors, but Shouk hasn’t been around long. Starting to make an appearance on Instagram in late 2020 and serving at local eateries ever since, this newcomer to the indie food market is set to be a game changer- and by the popularity over at Trinity, we’re expecting to see their name more and more around the city centre and beyond.

Luigi’s Street Food

YouTuber Danny Malin stopped at Luigi’s Street Food truck inside Trinity Kitchen to try out the deep-fried pizza, chicken parmi and other authentic Italian treats earlier this year – and now Luigi’s is back for another round at Trinity Kitchen. The Rate My Takeaway star said: “They’re chucking some flavours together of the highest standards… some of these are the best in the land I’ll tell ya”.

On the menu you’ll find a range of deep-fried calzone dishes with toppings like cheese and tomato, pepperoni, chicken and more. The Arancini is also on the menu, with mozzarella sticks and a Birra Moretti is never more than a contactless swish on the payment machine.

Luigi’s even have their own meal deal: a pizza with a combination of soft drinks or alcoholic lager for those ready to unwind. Priced at £10 and £12 respectively, there aren’t many places in the city centre that you can get a full calzone and a drink for under £15, so it’s well worth taking advantage of.

Good Boy Burger

If you visited Trinity Kitchen earlier this year, you might recognise the Good Boy Burger van taking over Trinity Kitchen. Expect halloumi nugs to dunk in rich tomato or garlic sauces or opt for the speciality: short rib patty burgers inside the converted shipping container.

On their menu, you can find (you guessed it) plenty of burgers. Made from short rib smash patties, you can bet these meaty meals will be melt-in-your-mouth and utterly irresistible with their secret Good Boy burger sauce. Vegans needn’t pass up this burger van: their Cauli Schnitzel is a crispy cauliflower schnitzel patty with melted vegan cheese, streaky meatless bacon and garlic aioli- perfect for those looking for a meat alternative on a plant-based diet.

Sri Non Thai

Bringing a taste of Thai cuisine from their Huddersfield and Leeds restaurants, Sri Non Thai is another newcomer to Trinity Kitchen with a lot of flavour to offer. Taking over the VW Camper Van, the popular eatery will be serving up traditional starters and sides with Thai curries.

Think crispy chicken, Singapore noodles and sweet chilli sauce- all served from the tiny hatch inside a converted car: you’re certainly unlikely to find this concept anywhere else in the city centre.

Josie Towning, Food and Beverage Manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting a brand new set of street food vendors, all arriving with a variety of different offerings that we are sure our guests will enjoy.

“We are incredibly pleased with the new vans as they continue to offer independent street food traders a new platform to showcase their talents and abilities, without the need for their own set-up.”
