Favourite Food Spots in Sheffield

Moving to a new city for university is one of the most daunting steps a young person can take as you leave your family and familiar surroundings behind and venture out on your own...

When you are making such major lifestyle changes, unexpected obstacles which you may have never considered before become arise. For many, that is not knowing where to eat out. If you are travelling from a different city or a different country, the food you will eat is the most comforting aspect of university life. Of course, you want to explore your palette and try new things, but you also do not want to waste your money on meals you might not enjoy. So, to elevate food struggles, I have comprised a directory of my favourite meal spots in Sheffield as well as the restaurant’s dietary inclusion. These are all my favourite spots to eat, and while tastes vary, I have taken many friends to these locations and there is always something for everyone!
