And now The Ridings Shopping Centre which is steeped in history but has consistently bubbled with the latest trends in food, drink, clothes and leisure, is home to a bubble waffle bar as well as bubble tea.
OISHI.Leeds, on the upper mall in the iconic tree bar, is open daily offering everything from strawberries and cream wrapped in a freshly made ‘egg waffle’ to waffles filled with chocolate delights alongside an italian soda beverage. Those wanting bubble tea to accompany the waffle can grab one from Cha next to The Reel Cinema or a coffee from Joy’s Coffee House or one of the Grind Cafes also in the centre.
If more traditional waffles float your boat Ruby Lou’s also offer Belgian Waffles from a grandma’s boozy recipe.
