Mowgli Street Food, Boar Lane.

The Leeds restaurant on Boar Lane is set to open in March, according to a post on the Mowgli Street Food Instagram.

Owners had been looking for some time for a suitable building, without success.

A post from earlier in December read: "Finally!!!! So excited to announce MOWGLI LEEDS has been secured today and now has spades in the ground. She is at 34 Boar Lane.

"A beautiful glass fronted building on a busy and very “Mowgli” street.

"Leeds is a city I have hankered after for the last four years.

"I had to find exactly the right place and exactly the right building and it took this long.

"This space is perfect with her open canteen come hither-she will be full of trees and swings and amber twinkle and home warmth cooked freshly on site every morning.

"I need to open around March... because I have an insecure attachment to this city of Leeds after 4 years of chasing her! Until I can bring the chat bomb to Boar Lane I promise you I will not rest."
