‘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 ...

SoLita Launches New Summer Menu As 1st Birthday Approaches

SoLita Launches New Summer Menu As 1st Birthday Approaches

*SoLita SUMMER MENU REVIEWED HERE!* It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of SoLiTA in Manchesters Northern Quarter. Looking back through my posts you’ll notice that I’ve eaten my way through most of the menu and many specials. Since opening last July they’ve been constantly changing and developing the menu, consistently surprising me with bigger, better and often stranger ideas. ...

SoLiTa In The Street ‘Hot Wing Challenge’ Champion!

SoLiTa In The Street ‘Hot Wing Challenge’ Champion!

As you may have read in my review of the Northern Quarter Takeover 2013, I was brave (or stupid?) enough to enter the SoLita In The Street Hot Wing Challenge yesterday. Now I do love spicy food and I’m always complaining when things that are supposed to be hot turn out not to be (I’m looking at you Almost Famous ‘Suicide’ Sauce’) ... Read More »

Northern Quarter Takeover 2013 – PARTY!

Northern Quarter Takeover 2013 – PARTY!

Yesterday saw the third annual Northern Quarter Takeover, a huge street party on the streets of Manchesters cool Northern Quarter district. Most of the roads within the NQ were closed and though entry was free it was limited and once full a strict one in one out policy was in operation. There were fun fairs, DJs, outdoor bars and of course ... 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 »

Have You Tried A.N.A.L?

Have You Tried A.N.A.L?

Regular readers will know I’m a massive chilli freak; I put loads of fresh chilli in pretty much everything I cook at home and use chilli powder and cayenne pepper like salt. When i’m out almost everything ‘hot’ isn’t hot enough for me; Nando’s ‘Extra-Hot’ just isn’t and Almost Famous suicide sauce certainly didn’t make me reach for a noose. ... Read More »

SoLita’s New Lunch Menu & The Rather Special Manc-Hattan

SoLita’s New Lunch Menu & The Rather Special Manc-Hattan

Last Monday one of my favourite Manchester restaurants SoLita launched their new lunch menu, on paper it looked like fantastic value so I paid them a visit to find out. The menu is available on weekdays  and currently contains 11 items priced at £5.95 each as well as Fries (£1.50) and Sweet Potato Fries (£2.50). I’ve no doubt that this will ... Read More »

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 ...

Christmas At Solita

Christmas At Solita

I love Christmas but for some reason so far this year I’m not feeling very festive yet. It will definitely come but to help hurry that festive feeling along I decided to sample the new Christmas menu items at one of my favourite Manchester restaurants, Solita. Solita are well known for their burgers, they taste great thanks to being cooked ... Read More »

Solita Revisit – Fastest Moving Restaurant In Manchester?

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 »
