Leicester: A Foodie's Paradise

Leicester is a city that celebrates diversity and culture, and nowhere is this more evident than in its food scene. Whether you crave a spicy curry, a cheesy delight, or a plant-based treat, you will find something to satisfy your taste buds in Leicester.

One of the most famous attractions for food lovers is the Golden Mile, a stretch of road that is home to dozens of restaurants, cafes and shops offering dishes from across the Indian subcontinent. You can sample authentic flavours from Gujarat, Punjab, Bengal and more, as well as indulge in sweets, snacks and street food. The Golden Mile also hosts the annual Diwali celebrations, which light up the city with colourful displays and fireworks.

If you prefer something more European, you can head to one of the many bistros, tapas bars and pizzerias that dot the city centre. You can enjoy classic French cuisine at Bistrot Pierre, share Spanish tapas at Barceloneta, or savour Italian pizza and pasta at Bella Italia Wigston. For a unique twist on afternoon tea, you can try the Indian-inspired 'High Chai' at Cafe Delhi, which features savoury bites like samosas and chaat alongside sweet treats like gulab jamun and pistachio kheer.

Leicester also caters to vegans and vegetarians with a range of plant-based options. You can visit Awesome Vegan for fast vegan food to go, such as burgers, fries and nuggets, or Bamboo Street Food for vegan kebabs, wraps and salads. For a more relaxed setting, you can check out World Peace Cafe, which is part of a Buddhist meditation centre and serves wholesome dishes like soups, sandwiches and cakes.
