Food in Leeds is about to get smokin’ - literally.
Leeds Bierkeller Entertainment Complex has revealed plans for a new American-style barbecue restaurant specialising in traditional flavours of the Old West but with some contemporary twists.
The Smokin’ Bar, following a revamp of what is currently Around The World, will serve up signature in-house smoked meats such as chargrilled steaks, ribs and wings combined with secret recipe glazes and spice blends.
But the smoke won’t stop there – it is also planning to offer a selection of healthy smoked fish dishes including Creole salmon and spiced blackened cod.
Leeds which is the original Bierkeller Entertainment Complex in the UK, with five others following suit, will be the first to house the new The Smokin’ Bar concept.
She said: “Smoked, barbecued and chargrilled meats are really popular at the moment so we know there’s going to be a demand for this kind of food, but we want to be about more than just that which is why we’ve extended our menu to include a variety of smoked fish alternatives too.
“I’ve already experienced some of the dishes which we’ll be serving here and there’s something a bit different about them in terms of the intense authentic flavours and the quality so we’re really excited to bring them to our customers.
“Old West-style food is amazing, it’s all about the cuts of meat, the smoking and the innovative cooking techniques, but you’ve got to do it well which is what we intend to do.”
The new concept will have a VIP launch on November 30.
