The Great Banh Mi Search

Please help me locate Banh Mi sandwiches in Northern New England. If I'm in Nashua on the weekend, I stop at Saigon Market for their pre-made sandwiches. Recently we went to Portsmouth so I could t...

Another London report, more random, some Manchester

Joanie
by Joanie 2 years ago

I did lots of snacking and eating at markets while in town, not much for "nicer" places but a couple. Spent a lot riding all over on the tube too. Arrived early in Hammersmith on Feb. 24 and hit th...

[Woodford, Greater Manchester] Oliver's

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Over the years, I’ve driven past Oliver’s loads of times without giving it a thought. I suppose it may be because it’s never cropped up on the local foody websites. Anyway, the other week I came ...

Michelin 2016 - no change in the North West

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Both Simon Rogan's and Aiden Byrne's Manchester restaurants were again tipped for stars but have again not been rewarded. So, we stay at just five starred restaurants in the region - L'Enclume, Fra...

[Manchester] Tea at the Town Hall

h
by Harters 4 years ago

A “proper” afternoon tea at a bargain price (£12.50) in quite elegant Victorian Gothic surroundings. There’s comfy Chesterfields to sit on and you’re surrounded by sculptures of local 19th century ...

Manchester for 3 days + Old Trafford + West Ham (London)

My buddy and I are making a trip to Manchester for the Utd Liverpool match and will be there Wed - Thur - Fri before the match. Then we are headed to London for the West Ham Newcastle match before...

Cheadle, Greater Manchester

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Good to see new entries in the 2016 Good Food Guide for both Aamchi Mumbai and Indian Tiffin Room. I swing between the two as to which is my favourite South Asian in the metro area.

[Ancoats, Manchester] Vnam

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Situated directly opposite the Win Yip Chinese supermarket, on Oldham Road, Vnam was I think the first Vietnamese place to open in Manchester. I heard about it, back in 2010, on the now moribund Eg...

[Altrincham, Greater Manchester] Market House

h
by Harters 4 years ago

When the friends said we were going somewhere local, casual, that’d been around for years but had recently had a makeover, we were at a loss to know where we might be going. The Market House is t...

[West Didsbury, Manchester] LIme Tree

h
by Harters 4 years ago

I hope I never tire of having dinner at the Lime Tree. If ever it happens, it’ll be time to give up on this eating out lark. There really is nothing I’d rather eat on a regular basis than the sort ...

[Hale Barns, Greater Manchester] San Carlo Fiorentina

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Whether it’s the city centre mothership or this suburban outpost, I’ve always reckoned San Carlo to be “footballers wives” territory. Well, the tally on this visit certainly included one Premier ...

[Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester] Seven Spices

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Seven Spices has always delivered a very decent dinner. Not quite up there with the top flight South Asians in the area, but streets ahead of the high street curry houses. Aloo papri chaat is a ...

Australasia

by trav 4 years ago

Will be in Manchester this weekend. Any opinions about the food etc. at Australasia. I was only able to get a 22:00 reservation. Thank you.

[Manchester, city centre] Sam's Chop House

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Sam’s doesn’t just do classic British food with a modern twist, it does classic northern food with a modern twist. So, the almost ubiquitous scallop starter comes with a thick slice of homemade bla...

[Rusholme, Manchester] Mughli

h
by Harters 4 years ago

Mughli really is a standout from the albeit dwindling number of identikit curry houses along Wilmslow Road. There’s a “proper” menu full of items you won’t generally see elsewhere. Samosa chaat ...

[Manchester, city centre] Mr Cooper's House & Garden

h
by Harters 5 years ago

Yes, it's an oddly named restaurant. Now under the direction of Simon Rogan, it occupies the space which previously housed the Midland Hotel’s brasserie. I suppose you could say it plays to the “...

[Didsbury, Manchester] No. 4

h
by Harters 5 years ago

Over the last couple of years, No 4 has become our favourite local bistro. The menu is Modern Brit – exactly our first choice of what we want to eat. And the food is fairly straightforward – no bel...

[Manchester, city centre] Red Chilli

h
by Harters 7 years ago

We got the train into town, intending to do a bit of shopping in Chinatown. And have lunch, of course. It’s a goodly while since I’ve been to Red Chilli – partly because we’ve been too busy ticking...

Decent food near the Apollo in Manchester

t
by Theresa 4 years ago

We're going to the Apollo on Tuesday evening and would like to have something to eat first. The style/nationality of the food doesn't really matter, but it needs to be very near, reasonable in pri...

[West Didsbury, Manchester] Greens

h
by Harters 4 years ago

We’re having a vegetarian week, so it was something of a no-brainer where to go on “dinner out night”. There was a lovely light salad to start for one of us. Charred and slightly wilted quarters...
