Those sniffing out an excellent value, tasty fill in central Leeds need look no further than 42 New York Street, where they’ll find one of the city’s most delightful hidden gems. Rocio serves up a mouth-watering selection of tapas and Mediterranean delicacies in a warm and laid-back environment.
Eliciting glowing reviews from those lucky enough to have already sampled it, Rocio is run by a passionate family who take great pride in cooking up authentic, fresh and locally sourced plates of meats, seafood and veggies. From very special croquettes smothered in zesty sauce, to fragrant seafood paella cooked daily, and everyone’s favourite patatas bravas, every member of the party will find something to suit their fancy on Rocio’s extensive menu.
Asides from Spanish fare, there’s also a handful of Turkish and Middle-Eastern inspired treats, such as hummus with sundried tomato and black olive tapenad. But don’t be fooled by the venue’s idea of ‘tapas’: the portions are larger than traditional servings elsewhere, and you’re bound to leave feeling stuffed, with a satisfied stomach and wallet.
All of this food is served in a relaxed and atmospheric environment, which, with its no-frills decoration scheme and marble topped tables and Spanish flags, lets the food do all the talking.
Located a stone’s throw away from Leeds central bus station, the beautiful Corn Exchange, and the lively Call Lane, where you’ll find stacks of bars, Rocio is the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping, or line your stomach before a night out.
