Sing Kee Foods is a family-run business selling a wide range of food and drink from the Far East for over 20 years. Being based in Leeds, we are aware of how world-class universities have made our city an increasingly popular destination for students from both the UK and abroad.
If this applies to you, welcome (back) to student life and let us help you fill this academic year with the tastes of the Orient. We are even offering students 10% off everything for the whole of September! In this blog, we look at how to get hold of Chinese food in Leeds city centre as well as some of our ideas for cooking your own.
Where can I find Chinese food in Leeds?
Leeds has no official Chinatown, but you will find many Chinese restaurants and shops in the north-east area of the city centre. This is where you will find the Sing Kee Oriental Superstore, located at 26-28 Woodhouse Lane, Leeds LS2 8LX.
Drop by any day of the week and be amazed by our fantastic variety of food and drink from across the Far East including China, Japan and Korea, as well as high-quality fresh fruit and vegetables. If you are stuck for ideas or not sure what to buy, we have passionate foodies on hand who will be happy to help. As we are highly committed to supporting those with specific dietary requirements, you will also find an impressive selection of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan products.
How can I cook Chinese food at home?
Chinese food is about creating delicious meals from fresh, simple ingredients, so it doesn’t require you to be a world-class chef. Better still, it’s all about finding a nutritional balance, which is good news for your heart, brain and taste buds.
The secret is knowing what flavours and textures work with each other. If you are not sure where to start, check out our favourite recipes, many of which are vegetarian and vegan friendly, which we regular post on this blog as well as our Facebook and YouTube pages. You can find all of the ingredients we use at Sing Kee Foods.
Sounds good, but I don’t have time to cook
We know how tough it can be finding time to cook while a student. Many of you will be balancing intense course work with a part-time job, or you might simply have a deadline looming and want something more than a slice of toast to keep you going.
So, if cooking Chinese food from scratch is not an option, Sing Kee Foods offers all kinds of delicious noodle pots and other snacks from across the Far East.
What if I don’t live in Leeds?
If you don’t live locally to the Sing Kee Oriental Superstore, why not shop with us online? Our delivery charges throughout the UK start from as little as £3.50 and, if you spend £60 or more, we will even delivery your order for free.
And, don’t forget, for the whole of September, students can enjoy a 10% discount on all purchases. Visit our website today and get inspired!
