Where To Eat in Manchester

After walking past this amazing looking place on our first night we had to go in the following day, the decor literally draws you in.

We only got hot drinks and some light snacks because we had eaten breakfast not long before but I went for the sweet corn fritter with tomato salsa, Beth went for the smashed avocados and crackers and Rakesh went for the Korean chicken bites which were delicious! It all was!

Great service, delicious food and amazing interiors!

We went for drinks before filling up on food and right opposite the bar we were in was this chicken restaurant obviously I think Manchester has a slight obsession with buttermilk chicken! We came across and we loved the quirky decor, crates for seating to play on the name of the place and having their spirits selection in the middle of the restaurant was a nice touch.

We went for the crispy buttermilk chicken meal with a side of their slaw and my goodness you have to try their curry sauce, hands down one of the best things about the meal!

We also had a tasty gin whist we waited for a table and made the wait less painful whilst our tummies were rumbling. 



trof manchester restaurant brunch food

On our last day went headed to Trof for brunch, it's quite small inside but has a few floors, a bourbon bar too.

Me and Rakesh actually went for the same brunch, which hardly ever happens! We made such a good decision I was so proud of us. Chorizo home fries with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on sourdough, the fresh chilli gave a nice kick to wake us up and got us ready for the day.



ply manchester restaurant food bar cocktails pizza

Our first bar on the Friday evening we headed for Ply, a bar/art space slash pizza joint. We started off with £5 cocktails which were super tasty! It was such a hip hop and happening place to be and everyone seemed chilled and happy.

I went for the shrooms pizza (mushrooms, mozzarella and chilli oil) with added parma ham, these were honestly the best pizzas we've ever had (yes Rakesh the food critic even agreed) I know I know it's easy to say "that was the best fricken pizza of my whole life" after almost every pizza you eat but now seriously super tasty.

foundation manchester coffeehouse coffee minimal cakes

We quickly ran here before heading for our train and I ordered two coffees and two slabs of 'cookies and cream' brownie for the journey. The interiors were right up my street, black and white tiles, minimal signs and well thought out layout. Honestly the quirkiest, modern looking coffeehouse I've ever been too!

 The wait for the coffees were ridiculous and we unfortunately didn't have the time to wait for them so I regrettably got a refund and we headed for the train which we were infact very early for. I'll manage to get the coffees next time though.
