[Manchester, Rusholme] Jaffa

Harters | Dec 19, 2011 05:50 AM

It seems that time flies away so quickly and, unfortunately, so it seems does the memory. So apologies, if I’ve raved about this place before. It’s situated on Manchester’s “Curry Mile” which (a) has never been a mile and (b) is no longer just curry. There’s a growing number of Middle Eastern places and Jaffa is one of the longer established.

But, before you think about getting frocked and suited up to visit South Manchester, remember this is just a kebab shop with a few tables. But a fiver gets you a decent plate of food. Lamb sharwama – generously portioned slivers of tasty lamb with some nice charring at the edges - fills half the plate. The other half made up of the usual kebab shop salad (if you want more interesting veg, go for one of the three quid mezze plates as well – but you won’t finish both). A splodge of hummus. Another splodge of a very pokey chilli sauce. A side plate of warmed flatbread. And that’s lunch.

Walk it off with a stroll along the Mile to one of the asian supermarkets to stock up or pop into the Sanaam or Delhi for a box of mixed Indian sweets
