The New Menu (& Some Old Favourites) At Mughli, Rusholme

The New Menu (& Some Old Favourites) At Mughli, Rusholme

Despite being one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester and the restaurant I ate at the most in 2014, I haven’t written about Mughli for ages. Not because they weren’t great experiences, far from it, I just didn’t feel there was much more to say that I’d not already said here. However, I couldn’t resist sharing my last two visits, ...

Ziya Asian Grill, Rusholme – ‘Relaunching The Curry Mile’

Ziya Asian Grill, Rusholme – ‘Relaunching The Curry Mile’

I almost cancelled my reservation to Ziya – a new Indian restaurant in Rusholme – after reading a bizarre interview with their head chef where amongst other ridiculous statements he claimed they were ‘relaunching the Curry Mile’ because there was ‘nowhere good enough to take my family to eat’. Hardly the best way to launch a new business even if it ... Read More »

Gymkhana, Mayfair, London – 2014 National Restaurant Awards Winner!

Gymkhana, Mayfair, London – 2014 National Restaurant Awards Winner!

* Edit * On 30th June 2014 Gymkhana was named #1 in the National Restaurant Awards ‘Top 100‘ * I grew up eating in Indian restaurants on a regular basis but as my tastes evolved I somehow neglected them in favour of seemingly more exciting cuisines. Perhaps unfairly but more likely caused by one too many average meals in mediocre local ‘curry houses’. ... Read More »

A Very Special Visit To Mughli

A Very Special Visit To Mughli

It’s become something of a tradition to take my Dad to my favourite restaurant of the moment for his birthday. Recent years have seen us visit Ramsons, Aumbry and the Parkers Arms. Generally it gets harder to top the previous year but there was only ever one contender this year. I’ve visited Mughli several times over the past 12 months and am yet ... Read More »

The Spice Club Popup @ A Secret Location, Manchester

The Spice Club Popup @ A Secret Location, Manchester

There are only 2 places i’ve struggled to get a reservation at more than The Spice Club; one was the best restaurant in the world at the time Noma and the other, Heston’s 3 Michelin starred The Fat Duck. The Spice Club isn’t a fine-dining restaurant though and there’s no celebrity chef attached, it’s an ‘underground’ supper club run by Monica ... Read More »

Mughli and Clyde – A Modernist Take On Mughlai Cuisine

Mughli and Clyde – A Modernist Take On Mughlai Cuisine

Certain names just belong together; Romeo & Juliet, Lennon & McCartney or Batman & Robin for example. The latest addition to that list is Mughli & Clyde after not only the highlight of my year so far but quite possibly one of my favourite ever nights out. I try not to set my expectations too high for fear of disappointment, ... Read More »

‘Slumdog Supperclub’ (Food Bloggers Christmas Party) @ Mughli, Rusholme

‘Slumdog Supperclub’ (Food Bloggers Christmas Party) @ Mughli, Rusholme

What’s the difference between a turkey and a food blogger after a Christmas party? Nothing, they’re both STUFFED! Ho-ho-ho! T’was the (11th) night before Christmas when a gaggle of Manchester food bloggers left Indian restaurant Mughli more stuffed than the proverbial festive turkey. Already a firm favourite with most of the bloggers in attendance – including myself – Mughli really ... Read More »

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

This was the 5th stop on my epic London weekender and whilst all of the other places were new to me, some with Michelin stars and big name chefs behind them it was Dishoom who I’d already visited last year that I was perhaps most excited about. When I revisit places I usually want to sample different things from the ... Read More »

A Quick Trip To Mughli In Rusholme

A Quick Trip To Mughli In Rusholme

Recently I visited Mughli in Rusholme, Manchesters ‘curry mile’. It was late and a last minute decision following an event at the Manchester Academy as we felt like a change from our usual post gig Indian restaurant, Zouk. I’ve always loved the vibe around Rusholme but never found a restaurant where the standard of food quite lives up to it. ... Read More »

Blue Naan, Felixstowe, Suffolk

Blue Naan, Felixstowe, Suffolk

The Blue Naan is located in the heart of Felixstowe town centre, just off the coast. It has a great reputation locally and on sites such as TripAdvisor, so I decided to pay it a visit. Despite being Saturday night it was very quiet when we arrived which worried me slightly, to be fair it was quite early but i’d ... Read More »
