And now folks… what should you try?
Now that we’ve got the types of French restaurants in Leeds down, what exactly should you try once you’ve chosen your ideal spot? French cuisine is known for having some of the finest dishes in the world, and trust us, it’s not all frogs legs and snails – which, are delicious mind you. If escargot (which tastes remarkably like garlic butter) and cuisses de grenouille (frogs legs) aren’t really your thing, never fear, the French restaurants in Leeds have got you covered. Treat yourself to coq au vin, chicken braised in red wine, lardons and mushrooms, or raclette consisting of melted cheese served with potatoes, ham and often dried beef. Of course, boeuf bourguignon is a must, and this beef stew is one of the most famous exports from the France, and the French restaurants in Leeds certainly know how to deliver on this dish. Another favourite, that we do recommend you try when in a Leeds French restaurant is moules à la crème Normande, of mussels with white wine, Normandy cider, garlic and cream.
