Hound refugee in Manchester/york needs recs

baltimorejim | Apr 19, 2010 04:13 PM

I just returned from a decent meal at Red chilis thnks to your recommendations (Beijing dumplings, mixed hot pot were both very good.) Due to volcanic ash I am spending an unexpected week in Manchester and York at the end of a two week vacation in the Lake Dist and Scotland. I was generally happy with food we encountered. Beautiful setting at the Mustard Seed in Inverness, unfortunately I think my duck brast/ pheasant combo was a little dry. Outstanding meals at First Coast in Edinburgh and unexpected good fortune in finding The Gilded Lily in Carlisle. I enjoyed the scenery and the fish and chips at the Chippy next to the Seaforth in Ullapool. Sampled smoked haddock from the Victorian Market in Inverness, numerous samples of haggis and black pudding. Love your bacon. In Manchester I had the lamb shank at the waldorf during the City v Man United game and fish and chips at a place in the shambles.

I make go back to Red Chilis for the fried whole fish I saw served.

In York I tried one of the hog roast sandwiches but skipped the Sunday Roast at the Evil Eye. Since I hope to return home this coming Sunday I may have missed my only chance to have a Sunday Roast. What the heck is a Sunday Roast anyway and should I go out of my wy to have one if I return.

Any recommendations you have are welcome. Does the Marble Arch still have good food?
