What’s Bigger Than A Big Mac? A Big Manc!

What’s Bigger Than A Big Mac? A Big Manc!

I must confess that despite being a foodie and a bit of a burger snob I am still quite partial to a McDonalds Big Mac. I think the reason is that it’s quite unique thanks to it’s middle layer of bread and particularly Big Mac Sauce, there isn’t really a direct equivalent available from the better burger places. Or at ... Read More »

Ribs, Wings & New Things At SoLita

Ribs, Wings & New Things At SoLita

It’s no secret that i’m a huge fan of SoLita in Manchesters’ still growing Northern Quarter. As I love trying new places I often don’t get back to a restaurant very often, even if i’ve had a great time there but SoLita is the one place that I just can’t resist returning to again and again despite having already eaten ...

Miracle On High Street is a popup restaurant & bar from the people behind Almost Famous Burgers. On their website they say “We’re unashamedly celebrating all things festive – join us for eats, drinks, and being merry.” and they’re not joking!

Solita Revisit – Fastest Moving Restaurant In Manchester?

I wouldn’t normally write another review of a restaurant when revisiting so soon after the original review. However Solita is no normal restaurant so exceptions must be made! (Don’t worry, i’ll explain what I mean by this at the end.) Last week my young son was sent home from school with an ear infection, he’s as mad about food as ... Read More »

Solita, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Solita, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Solita is one of the coolest new places in the ever growing Northern Quarter of Manchester. It’s slightly out of the way on Turner street where ‘Sole‘ used to be. Perhaps slightly confusingly, Solita isn’t an Italian restaurant. The name means ‘South Of Little Italy’ in reference to the location of the restaurant near the Ancoats Little Italy area of Manchester. I’ve ... Read More »

63 Degrees, Northern Quarter, Manchester

63 Degrees, Northern Quarter, Manchester

As much as I love the interesting and modern cuisine that our top restaurants are serving these days there will always be a place in my heart for classic, French fine-dining. It’s where it all began for me at Gordon Ramsay’s flagship 3 Michelin star Royal Hospital Road restaurant in 2006. So I was fairly excited to hear about 63 ... Read More »

Sole, Manchester

Sole, Manchester

I love seafood so I was naturally excited to hear about a new seafood restaurant opening in the ever growing Northern Quarter area of Manchester. My excitement was only slightly dampened by the distant memories of the last seafood restaurant I visited in Manchester, ‘Livebait’. The less said about that one the better. I was happy to read several good ... Read More »
