Hawksmoor Manchester – The Best Steak Since…

Hawksmoor Manchester – The Best Steak Since…

Until this year the best steak I’d had in Manchester was over 15 years ago. It was at the newly opened Gaucho Grill, one of the first nice restaurants I went to when I could afford to eat out on my own. I’ve had some decent steaks since. At the likes of Grill On The Alley, The Lowry Hotel and perhaps ... Read More »

Gusto Manchester – Preview

Gusto Manchester – Preview

There are countless Italian restaurants in Manchester but unless you like dining with footballers wives there aren’t that many good ones. In fact, I haven’t eaten at one since Italia early last year and that’s sadly no longer with us. I’d never visited a ‘Gusto’ before – a chain of Italian restaurants by Living Ventures with branches in cities including Liverpool and ... Read More »

The Botanist, Manchester – Special Preview

The Botanist, Manchester – Special Preview

Nobody divides the opinion of Manchester’s foodies quite like Living Ventures. They’re an obvious target due to their huge success and I guess it’s easy to hate them as many bloggers seem to, I’ve been guilty of it myself at times. But while many of their places are clearly not for me I can’t help but admire their relentlessness and also the ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 10 (09/04/2014)

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 10 (09/04/2014)

They say time flies when you’re having fun. Friday nights have certainly been flying by since B.Eat Street started running their ‘Friday Food Fight’ events at Upper Campfield Market. Amazingly last week was the tenth and there are now just two remaining! It was my sixth time (plus the ‘Cook Off’) and just as much fun as ever. First stop, Flavours ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 07 (18/04/2014) – Kendal Calling Official Manchester Launch Party!

It’s always a good Friday at B.eat Street’s ‘Friday Food Fight‘ but for episode 07 it actually was Good Friday! What better way to commemorate Jesus’ crucifixion than with amazing street food? Not only was it a four day weekend but the weather was stunning too, Manchester was looking fabulous in the sun. The Beetham Tower opposite Upper Campfield market – the home ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 06 (11/04/2014)

Friday Food Fight is all about good food, good music & good drinks, you know the score by now i’m sure (but see here if you really don’t). I wasn’t actually planning on eating at EP06 since i’d been to BrewDog for their Honest Burgers popup, but after missing out of EP05 the previous week couldn’t resist it, especially as I ...

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 ...

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 02 (14/03/2014)

Having enjoyed the first Friday Food Fight so much I couldn’t wait to return the following week  to eat my way through a completely new line up. This time everything ran smoothly from the start and with no power problems we walked straight in. The venue was just as impressive as I remembered and there was already a great buzz ... Read More »

Friday Food Fight – SE 01 . EP 01 (07/03/2014)

It’s a few years ago now, but I’ve spent many Friday nights in warehouse like buildings with DJs playing dance music. Back then it was all about the music but yesterday at the inaugural Friday Food Night I got that same buzz I used to from clubbing only this time it was all about the food. I’d been looking forward ... Read More »

3TwentyOne ‘Rib Tuesdays’, Deansgate, Manchester

3TwentyOne ‘Rib Tuesdays’, Deansgate, Manchester

I’ve been meaning to revisit 3TwentyOne for a while after really enjoying their preview night in May. Even more so after the launch of their great offer ‘Rib Tuesdays’ but what finally made it happen was hearing they have an outdoor terrace which I didn’t know about. This past Tuesday the weather was absolutely glorious in Manchester and I couldn’t ... Read More »

Sapporo Teppanyaki, Manchester – Over priced, unauthentic, mediocre ‘Japanese’ food

Sapporo Teppanyaki, Manchester – Over priced, unauthentic, mediocre ‘Japanese’ food

It doesn’t happen very often but when the sun is properly out as it was last Wednesday, Manchester is a beautiful place. Particularly the Castlefield area with the numerous restaurants and bars with outdoor seating areas overlooking the canal. We were on our way to one of them, ‘Albert’s Shed’ famous for it’s alfresco dining thanks to it’s stunning terrace. I can only imagine ... 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 »
