Formerly a temporary pop-up vendor in Trinity Kitchen, Wanderer Junk have been serving up seitan burgers & loaded fries to the grateful citizens of Leeds since the start of summer. I think I speak on behalf of literally every Leeds vegan when I say we were all dreading the day their residency would end and we would be left trekking to Kirkstall for MOG’s once more. However, in September, they saved all our asses and announced they had taken over the Chapel of Church, which is right next to the Leeds Uni campus. God. Bless. These. Guys.

Last week, I got invited to my first bloggers event, and in true Yasmin style, it was for the launch of a Gin Club, which meant I got to spend my evening drinking gin & tonic and making new pals at a fancy casino. Blogging is the actual dream, isn’t it?

I’ve had many an adventure in this place. When I was 7 months pregnant, I ordered a virgin strawberry mojito and they brought a definitely-not-virgin-and-actually-very-alcoholic one to the table and I “accidentally” sipped too much of it before sending it back because when you’ve gone that long without alcohol you need to take what you can get. We also came here about ten minutes after Danny proposed to me. He proposed, I said yes, we got very excited and contemplated finally going to a fancy restaurant and ordering champagne, and then we saw the Common Room and said fuck it, let’s get a kebab.

Make No Bones is now part of Oli Sykes’ new venture Church – Temple of Fun, a huge beautiful venue which holds the vegan kitchen, an all vegan bar, a small tattoo studio, some arcade games, some free (FREE) photo booths, a 220 capacity gig venue and a small selection of his clothing brand, Drop Dead. I’m not going to lie, when I first heard about the idea for the venue I thought it sounded like too much going on at once, and wasn’t sure it would come to life in the best way. But it really did!

Honestly, before I was vegan or even vegetarian, I was That Bitch who had definitely eaten kebabs whilst sober. I bloody loved a kebab, and the best part about being vegan is veggie kebabs are always going to be nicer and more flavoursome, because whatever they use in regular kebabs is a sorry excuse for any kind of meat. Seitan does it better! Honourary mention to What The Pitta in London, and the Common Room in Sheffield for also doing nice kebabs, but Make No Bones wins here.
