Blackhouse – Grill on the Alley

Just over a week ago it was my 21st birthday, which involved plenty of celebrating and food, of course. It was an amazing day, I collected my new car in the morning, I was spoilt by my family, girlfriend and friends, and there was plenty to be happy about. All I knew about the day…

Hatch

If you are regularly on Oxford Road, you have probably seen the quirky and colourful shipping containers near Manchester Metropolitan University, which is ‘Hatch’. It’d be normal of you to walk past Hatch and take a second look at the peculiar set up as there is nothing quite like it. But you shouldn’t let the…

GRUB

A delayed blog due to a busy week last week. I started my new job (which I’m really enjoying) and I had my graduation ceremony, so I didn’t want to rush getting this out. Better late than never! ABOUT GRUB is a street food events company who organise events that include a variety of amazing…

Black Milk Cereal

I have been looking forward to writing this blog. I was going to write a review on my first visit to Black Milk but I wanted to try a wider range of desserts and milkshakes before I did. So here it is after my second visit. But brace yourself, this place is not for the…

The bakery has now relocated from the backstreet of the Piccadilly railway arch to Cotton Field Wharf in Ancoats, located beside New Islington Marina. There is also a fascinating story behind the relocation of the bakery. This is because after wanting to relocate, the cost…

Dessert Republic

This week, my blog is shorter than usual as I have been away in Berlin! But with dessert eateries becoming increasingly popular, I thought I would tell you about a hidden gem that I have found recently. I am always looking for new dessert places to try, so if you have any recommendations, please do…

The Laundrette

The Laundrette have three restaurants. The first restaurant began in Chorlton and later saw a Manchester and Newcastle branch open. The first restaurant in Chorlton, located on Beech Road, was formerly a laundrette called Soap Opera. It was later sold and transformed into what is now a restaurant and cocktail bar.
