A POPULAR Leeds restaurant is expanding and launching a new site in London.

Cielo Blanco, based at Trinity Leeds, is branching out with a spot at London’s trendy Exmouth Market, which is expected to open in May.

The Mexican restaurant and bar was founded in 2013 by Ged Feltham – the man behind the Leelex group, which also runs Leeds venues Pintura, Oporto, Neon Cactus and Jake’s Bar, to name a few.

To celebrate, the Leeds restaurant is launching a brand new menu, with dishes inspired by trips to the markets of Oaxaca.

New street food dishes include slow-cooked goat pibil flautas, chipotle camarones and chorizo picante.

Dan Andrews, brand director at Cielo Blanco, said: “We’re truly passionate about Mexico and its food and drink culture.

“Our menu is our own unique take on Mexican dishes with a street food style.

“Our inspiration may come from over 5,000 miles away but we like to use local ingredients where we can – we hope Leeds diners love it.”

With Cielo Blanco already proving a hit in Leeds, we hope it will do well in the Big Smoke too.
