Lees looking to serve up Michelin-Starred season

— 11 December 2017

Alex Lees has always fancied himself as a bit of a chef, so it was no surprise to hear him talking about the Yorkshire squad’s visit to the Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant in Leeds as being “right up my street”.

“I absolutely love Asian food,” said the top order batsman.

Over the last couple of years, Lees has even documented his love for the kitchen on his social media accounts.

“I cook quite a bit at home and do some food reviews. I’ve called it the Halifax Food Review on my Instagram,” he continued.

“I probably cook six out of seven evenings and really enjoy it. Myself, my friends and my fiancée try to find different places and little gems.

“I thought I’d document it for a bit of fun.

“I’m trying only to do positive ones. I don’t want to slate anyone because everyone tries.”

Issho Leeds (just above John Lewis) issholds Cuisine: Contemporary Japanese. Just amazing! Not too sure where to start with this one, it’s probably the best place I’ve eaten in England for a very long time. ???????? We ordered various dishes to share. All were exceptional. Turkey Karaage, Spicy Edamame, Salt & Lime Chicken Wings, Steamed Prawn & Salmon Gyoza, Spicy Pork Bao Buns, Tempura Prawn & Vegetable, Tempura Squid, Scallops, Steak, California Rolls, Prawn Dragon Rolls, Salmon & Avocado Rolls and to finish we choose the warm rice pudding with caramelised banana and a Yamazaki Caramac. The sushi was outstanding, the flavours were on point. Personally, when you can eat the sushi without actually needing the soy accompaniment and it still being mouth-wateringly good is the ultimate test, for me anyway and this was just that. I would struggle to pick a favourite dish from what we ordered but the Pork Buns were certainly up there. Light and fluffy buns with sticky pork that was to die for. It is a must if you visit Issho! Every dish exceeded expectations, from presentation to the phenomenal flavours. The extensive choice of dishes are amazing! Matched with a cool setting with great ambience and top class service - this place has it all. Issho is also a great place to visit if you fancy a cocktail on their rooftop terrace. Really cool vibe with live music and a great drinks menu. The only downside to this place is the price ££££. It is a real treat but worth every penny! 5/5 ??????????????????
