REVIEW | Vegan Mexican food Manchester: Los Antojitos

food blog review; mexican vegan food

I dunno if you noticed, but I love Mexican food. On my travels in Southeast Asia, I was lucky enough to spend a considerable amount of time with my Mexican friend, Edgar. He told me all about what Mexicans eat. And crucially, what they don’t eat, and interestingly, the difference between ‘Tex-Mex’ and ‘Mexicali’ variations of their original, authentic food.

It’s a compliment however, when the people of Texas and California copy the flavours of Mexico and invent their own dishes. Like crispy fish tacos and burritos. But recently I went to try some vegan Mexican food in Manchester (Chorlton-cum-hardy)! Here’s what I thought… Continue reading “REVIEW | Vegan Mexican food Manchester: Los Antojitos”

Enzo | Pizza for Breakfast in Manchester City Centre

Manchester food blogger

Enzo, Manchester, 20 Fountain Street, M2 2AA.

Last weekend I joined some other bloggers for brunch at Enzo in Manchester’s city centre. This place is an absolute (kind of hidden) gem. It’s literally just off Market Street, behind Primark, which makes it the perfect stop off for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you’re hitting the shops. Their coffee is lush too, I had my usual soy flat white and it was perfect. But it was the brunch menu that really had me intrigued!

Review | The Inn, South Stainley, Yorkshire

There’s the little place up north, nestled in between Harrogate and Ripon, called South Stainley. No, I’d never heard of it either, but I guess I wouldn’t have, as I don’t venture north of Manchester very often.

There are lots of fields and greenery and cosy, country pubs and inns. There’s wildlife and great scenery and did I mention, lots of lovely pubs?

Spooky late-night eats at Cottonopolis, Manchester

Trick or treat? A bit of both, really.

Last week I went to a very Secret Supper at Cottonopolis in the Northern Quarter. Have you eaten here yet? Their food is fantastic and they know how to put on a good show too…

Food and Wine in Valletta, Malta

food blog Manchester Cheshire

This tiny, old town is Malta’s capital. But there is nothing about it that implies capital city. It’s quaint, quiet and very Instagrammable, which is no surprise, as it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

AIden Byrne’s Pop Up Restaurant, Bolton Food Fest

Food blog review event Manchester

When I was invited to this I was so excited, but I was totally stupid, read the email wrong, and up until the day itself thought it was to be held outside Manchester Town Hall, not Bolton Town Hall. I’m ridiculous. I know. But that’s another matter, and one I’m sure my friends will never let me live down. Thanks, guys.

I’ve quickly been able to get over that embarrassing hiccup. I’m hoping Aiden Byrne is able to do the same, after this disappointing and tasteless so-called Pop-Up restaurant, which was priced at £60 per head and was held in the event’s ‘luxury marquee’.

Sam’s Chophouse, Manchester

food review restaurant blog

There a lot going on in the Manchester food scene at the moment. Burgers are still popular. As is curry. And street food. And pizza.

And I pretty much I love all of those things.

But, when Milo from Sam’s Chophouse got in touch to invite me to review their new menu, I was intrigued and delighted and couldn’t wait to try it. Continue reading “Sam’s Chophouse, Manchester”

The Revival of Altrincham Market

food blog travel healthy lifestyle

Today I’m posting an article I wrote some time ago* for www.tastetoday.co.uk. As Jo needed to free up some space on her site, the article is available again. So as I really enjoyed writing it, I thought I’d re-share it on the blog. Hope you enjoy.

At Taste Today, you know we love good food. Particularly when it’s local, fresh and made with plenty of love. Especially when it’s well located with a bustling atmosphere making it a great place to sit, chat, and chow down. The perfect recipe for good times… we think so. And boy do they roll at Altrincham’s wonderfully renovated Market House.
