Make the most of the county's produce at Leicester restaurants
But it's not all about Indian cooking, far from it, actually. Leicester's restaurants also include classy places that make the most of Leicestershire's famous produce. You'll find souffles using red Leicester or Stilton cheese, Ploughman's sandwiches that will wow, as well as all kinds of fruits and vegetables from the Vale of Belvoir. And, of course, you can't go wrong with Leicestershire's meat dishes. If meat is your thing then check out the Melton Mowbray pork pies on offer at Leicester restaurants – they will redefine the way you think about an English lunch classic. And after that, why not wash down a locally-sourced feast with some regional ales? With Oakham in the vicinity and Burton not far away, Leicester's restaurants are in prime brewing territory, so make the most of it.
