We’ve always loved a take away. There is nothing better than enjoying gourmet food, cooked by someone else in the comfort of your home and no washing up afterwards! While restaurants remain closed and it’s still too cold for outdoor dining, we have made the most of our local take-aways. We’ve tried new things that we never would have before and discovered new eateries off the beaten track. Restaurants, pubs, cafes and food trucks have upped their take away game proving that even during lockdown, we don’t have to miss out on delicious dinners and premium sides. Here are some of the best lockdown take-aways in Manchester.
Rosa’s Thai Café
One of the best Thai food restaurants in Manchester is less than 15-minutes’ walk from PREMIER SUITES and they offer click and collect and delivery. Rosa’s Thai Café offers some of the most delicious South-East Asian food in the country combining local knowledge with wonderfully authentic ingredients. The café opened with spectacularly bad timing, just before the first lockdown, but have proven themselves resilient and a valuable part of the take away scene. The epitome of a Thai dinner for us is a Massaman Curry and Rosa’s beef Massaman is the best we’ve tasted outside Bangkok.
The Hip Hop Chip Shop
A supper from the humble chip shop cannot be beaten. Never mind Michelin stars, fish & chips wrapped in paper are the peak of British Dining. The Hip Hop Chip Shop was a pop-up shop for many years and have finally found their permanent home in Ancoats, serving a traditional salt and vinegar laden menu. The classic chip shop offering is complimented by some wild cards, like chilli batter sausages or halloumi battered fingers, and all have a hip hop nickname. Their secret batter recipe is held close to the chest but we can vouch that it is some of the finest this side of the Irwell.
A virtual foodie heaven for curry lovers, Manchester’s Curry Mile has the largest concentration of Asian restaurants in the UK including Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi cuisines. You’ll find more than 70 outlets selling some of the finest curry, rice and other exotic accompaniments, all with something unique to offer. Mughli one of the finest Indian Restaurants in Manchester is on the Curry Mile and has been frequented by many famous faces, including Hollywood actors and TV chefs. Their authentic food is the closest you’ll get to eating in India and 25 years of successful trading in a busy market speaks for itself.
Best Pizza in Manchester
If like us, you are a lover of Italian food, you’ll be missing a tasty restaurant-quality pizza over the past year. The frozen versions are fine in a pinch but there is nothing like a delicious, hand-pulled pizza, made with authentic ingredients. A close neighbour of ours Noi Quattro offers some of the best pizza in Manchester, along with fresh pasta and Italian deli products like cured meats and cheeses. Aside from pizza, this proudly Italian independent restaurant offers dishes that we may never have tried. Their Cuoppi, a street food consisting of fried pieces of meat, potatoes, fish or sweet food served in a paper cone is delicious and filling. Finish your meal with an Espresso to aid digestion.
A staple on the burger scene in Manchester, Honest Burgers have shops dotted up and down the country. Their burgers are made with ‘honest’ beef, free-range chicken or a range of vegan and vegetarian options – something to suit everyone. They believe that chips are not an added extra with burgers; they’re essential, so all of their main dishes come with a generous side of rosemary salted chips as standard. Their Tribute Burger is a menu favourite combining great British beef with American-style toppings, bacon, mustard and American cheese. Best of all, you don’t have to cart your dinner 15-minutes home and hope it stays warm; they deliver.
