The best Caribbean home cooked style food in Leeds. Sometimes only home cooked food will do, so ditch the pretense and dive into the real at Maureen’s!
There are halal, and vegetarian friendly food options available.
There’s a common confusion that good Caribbean food has to be hot. It doesn’t. It’s warming, and Maureen’s is just that.
Some of the most popular dishes like curry goat and jerk chicken come cooked in a fruity gravy using only the freshest ingredients, herbs and spices.
More belly warming soups alternate on a regular basis. The Oxtail Red Pea Soup is one you must try!
And then there’s other well known favourites like the mac n cheese and BBQ chicken wings.
To finish Maureen has some home made cakes on the menu that she’s perfected over the last 20-years. Give one of these a go, like the fresh pineapple cake! A sweet treat to finish a feast, and all at a very reasonable price.
Eating this flavoursome food is hard work on those taste buds. We recommend you sup one of the thirst quenching homemade drinks on offer, including Maureen’s own ‘Mo special juice’, sorrel and ginger, pineapple punch and the refreshing cucumber juice.
Maureen’s has a proper café feel where the focus isn’t on the décor but the food. Drop your pretence when you come here and settle into the home feel atmosphere. One where staff chat to the punters and you’re given the choice to eat in or take away.
