The ‘Honest Burgers’ #BrewBurger @ BrewDog Manchester

The ‘Honest Burgers’ #BrewBurger @ BrewDog Manchester

Being rather fond of burgers and beer I was naturally excited by talk of a beery, beefy collaboration between BrewDog and London burger experts ‘Honest Burgers’. Particularly when I heard the details; it’s made with two of my favourite BrewDog beers, Punk and 5am Saint as well as their smokey stout, Paradox. I’ve not yet had the pleasure of eating ...

The 2013 SoLita ‘Christmas Burger’ (& Krabby Patty)

The 2013 SoLita ‘Christmas Burger’ (& Krabby Patty)

Forget the John Lewis ad (or Coca-Cola if you’re feeling retro) it’s not Christmas for me until i’ve had the SoLita Christmas burger. OK, so it’s only the second year of this particular tradition but I hope it will continue and become as regular as the others. Last years was pretty spectacular but somehow they managed to top it with ... Read More »

The Farmers Arms, Bolton – The Best Burgers In Town!

The Farmers Arms, Bolton – The Best Burgers In Town!

It’s no secret that i’m quite partial to a burger, well good ones anyway. I’ve eaten many this year but one of my favourites is the ‘Peri Peri Chicken Topped Cheeseburger’ from my last visit to The Farmers Arms in Bolton. Since then they’ve launched a full burger menu with some fine looking creations which i’d been looking forward to trying. ... Read More »

‘Breaking Bad’ Night @ SoLita. Yeah Bitch!

‘Breaking Bad’ Night @ SoLita. Yeah Bitch!

You’ve probably noticed that I don’t need much of an excuse to visit SoLita. I’ve spent an unhealthy amount of time there recently so after my last visit self-imposed a ban in the hope of maybe fitting into my holiday clothes in a couple of weeks. I lasted 13 days. Actually impressive by recent standards and the ban wasn’t broken ... Read More »

‘The Murray’ at SoLita – The Burger The World Is Talking About. Plus ‘Burger Fondue’ & ‘DIY Tuna Tartare’

‘The Murray’ at SoLita – The Burger The World Is Talking About. Plus ‘Burger Fondue’ & ‘DIY Tuna Tartare’

Unless you’ve been living under one of those proverbial rocks you can’t possibly have missed Andy Murray winning Wimbledon on Sunday. Being a patriotic Brit (or perhaps just sensing a marketing opportunity?) Franco, owner of SoLita decided to commemorate this momentous event with a special tribute burger. Since it’s launch on Monday ‘The Murray’ burger has been attracting almost as ... Read More »

SoLita’s All New, Grown Up ‘Summer Menu’ Reviewed

SoLita’s All New, Grown Up ‘Summer Menu’ Reviewed

After some fairly decent weather (by Manchester standards at least) during early June the last couple of weeks have seen a return to greyer, colder and much wetter days. This downturn seemed to have coincided precisely with the launch of SoLita’s new summer menu last Tuesday. I was lucky enough to receive an early draft of the new menu from owner Franco ...

MEATliquor – What Almost Famous Tries & Fails To Be

MEATliquor – What Almost Famous Tries & Fails To Be

If you’ve read my Almost Famous review you’ll know that I have a problem with their ‘edgy’ attitude & marketing. So you may find it strange that I loved MEATliquor as it’s pretty clear that Almost Famous were very heavily inspired by them in the first place. There are a few subtle differences though, firstly whilst MEATliqour do have a ... Read More »

Byron, Deansgate – ‘Proper Hamburgers’ Arrive In Manchester

Byron, Deansgate – ‘Proper Hamburgers’ Arrive In Manchester

Just like my previous post about Guerrilla Eats at The Beagle i’m defying my slight OCD tendencies to bring you this review from yesterday’s Byron opening before my backlog from last weekend. Only because it’s another current event, we’re definitely back to chronological order after this one or i’ll quite possibly be driven insane. If you don’t know about Byron ... Read More »

WTF Is A Parmo Anyway?

WTF Is A Parmo Anyway?

That’s the question I found myself asking a few weeks ago when Parmo talk first infiltrated my Twitter feed. Initially from @LoveParmo, whom I’ve no idea how or why I was following (though I’m glad I do!) and then from my friends SoLita who went on to create their own version. I thought I must’ve been living on another planet as ... Read More »

‘Legendary Burgers’ At The Hard Rock Cafe, Manchester

‘Legendary Burgers’ At The Hard Rock Cafe, Manchester

I was recently invited to the Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester to sample their relaunched ‘Legendary Burger’ menu. I generally turn down similar offers for a variety of reasons but mainly because they’re often not places i’m interested in visiting. However, as a bit of a burger connoisseur and a fan of rock music I thought it would be an interesting opportunity ... Read More »
