As international cities go, Manchester boasts a pretty diverse range of places to eat. Famed for its ‘curry mile’ specialising in Asian flavours, its ‘hip’ Northern Quarter- the go-to place for an indulgent burger or leisurely brunch spot, not to mention the new-ish neighborhood of Spinningfields or The Triangle that host every kind of eatery from the spectacular Tattu Chinese restaurant to Crazy Pedro’s Pizza Parlour, no matter what your taste– there is somewhere to satisfy every palette! Here are just a few of the best places to eat in Manchester City Centre:
Evelyn’s Cafe Bar: Evelyn’s is great, the coffee is good and they have a great range of lunch meals and snacks. It is the place to visit if you are out and about in Manchester during the day and need some refueling. Or you could pop in on your lunch break for a hot drink and a bite to eat. The staff are lovely and place is really comfy and pleasant to sit in.
Umezushi: If you are in Manchester and are looking for the best sushi in town, then give Umezushi a visit. They have an amazing selection including a tasting menu for those who just can decide on a single dish. Everything is authentic and eating at Umezushi whisks you away to Japan through the feel of the restaurant and the flavours of the food on your taste buds. Umezushi is fantastic and if you are a sushi lover it should be a must visit. If you don’t want to leave the house to enjoy great sushi, you can always order in through a service like Deliveroo, they deliver straight to your door, taking convenience to a whole other level.
Dough: if you’re looking for a pizza place friendly to dietary requirements, then dough is your place. Dough is in the heart of the Northern Quarter and offers a gluten free pizza base, which means I’m a bit of a regular. The menu is Dough is creative and varied ranging from familiar classic pizza recipe to the way more adventurous including ‘Sausage & Stilton’ or my personal favorite ‘Shredded Confit Duck’.
Café Istanbul: Café Istanbul feels a little like those chilled summer evenings when you’re on holiday and stumble across a laid back family restaurant with a warm and inviting ambience. Mr T and I love Café Istanbul and it’s by far our favourite Turkish Restaurant in Manchester City Centre. You can enjoy a wide variety of meat dishes from the grill, traditional kebabs or go for my personal favourite from the Classics menu- the slow Baked Apricot Lamb, delicious.
