A MEXICAN food chain has revealed plans for one of the units at the soon to open Broadway extension.

Tortilla has submitted an application for Unit 1 of the expansion, which will consist of a cinema operated by The Light and five ground floor units.

The unit is next to the Broadway entrance to the shopping centre, opposite Sainsburys.

The chain, which specialises in burritos, tacos and other Mexican fare, has almost 40 chains across the UK, with 22 in London alone.

The nearest location is in the Leeds Trinity Shopping Centre and the Broadway branch will be one of the city centre's only Mexican eateries.

Tortilla has this week applied for planning permission to install a flue to the rear of the unit.

In 2016 permission for the extension was granted, allowing the ground floor units to be used as restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Later that year Gourmet Burger Kitchen signed up to open a restaurant in one of those units.

Construction work on the extension, on Broadway, was completed late last year, and work to fit out the cinema and the ground floor units is currently taking place in the run up to the complex’s Spring opening date.
