When going to Manchester, many people look at the music scene, the Northern quarter and other things to do. However, the food scene in Manchester is one not to be overlooked. Today, we’re telling you what, and where to eat on your trip to Manchester.
Mackie Mayor is not your average food market. This is the concept of food markets, revisited. In here, you order your food at the stall, but they bring it to your table. This little difference makes the experience much more like an actual sit-down meal, instead of a quick bite.
We only got to try Fin Fish’s classic fish and chips. I have to say, it was amazing. The fish was incredibly soft and tender, and really tasty. The fries were absolutely amazing too. This is our must try in the Northern Quarter, a place you will learn more about in our next blog!
Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza
Named the world’s 10th best Pizza in the entire world by big seven travel, Rudy’s pizza serves the best pizza I’ve ever tried. Talk to pizza connoisseurs and they’ll probably tell you the same thing. It’s as good as you’ll ever taste them. For the travelers on a budget, I ordered 2 pizzas and water for two and ended up paying £22 including tips.
The pizzaiolo (Italian for Neapolitan pizza maker) prepares the pizza’s right in front of you, using their wood-stoked furnace, which adds to the ambiance in the place.
Rudy’s Pizza doesn’t accept reservations, but operates using a “wait list”. When I got there on a Saturday night, I was told to come back in an hour. Definitely worth the wait! The pizza’s were absolutely amazing. I also have to give this place a shoutout for being super chill when I asked for a quick tour of the kitchen to see exactly how things worked. If there’s only one thing you eat in Manchester, this might just be the place to go.
This and That
If small alley food cafés are what you love to do, you will love This and That. Serving a menu of three or four different curries each day, have your curry on a bed of rice along with some garlic naan to make the best of your Indian food escape. The Lamb Karahi apparently is a local favourite, so make sure you try that! Prices here are very cheap, the most you’ll possibly end up paying for your meal is about £6.50.
Three options for your meals in Manchester. This should give you a good planning for your first days. If you have any other must-eat things in Manchester, we would love for you to share this in the Comments below! Thanks for reading our 2 cents on the Manchester food scene.
We hope you enjoy every bite there!
