The Best Things to Eat in ManchesterHow do these rankings work?
Their burgers are known for being as pretty as anything you’ll ever see and they light up Instagram feeds all across the north of England, where they have restaurants in Liverpool, Leeds and in the Northern Quarter here in Manchester. If you love lots of toppings and huge burgers this is the spot for you.
Many regard Rudy’s Pizza as the best pizza in the country. They’ve moved onto their second premises in Manchester on Peter Street and also expanded to Liverpool. None of the quality is lost as they grow, which is a real testimony to their excellence.
Another Heart to Feed has a simple room where the focus is very much on the brunch. They also serve awesome coffee with some of the best sweets you’ll ever taste.
Their breakfast tasting board gives you a little bit of everything and is the way to go along with some of their wonderful freshly squeezed juice.
Mughli Charcoal Pit isn’t just one of the best Indian restaurants in Manchester, it’s one of the best restaurants in the city, period. The delectably delicious Indian soul food here continues to wow guests who come from near and far just to sample the restaurant’s array of different curries.
Home Sweet Home is a must-visit place for classic American comfort food: toasties, tacos, eggs, bacon, waffles, fried chicken, steak, coffee, milkshake, cakes… The drool-inducing list goes on and on. It’s impossible to choose just one thing to order here, so go with friends and get as many dishes as you can fit into your bellies.
Cafe Istanbul is Manchester’s longest established independent restaurant, serving authentic Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine for nearly 40 years. To say they know what they are doing when it comes to kebabs would be a huge understatement.
They cook the meat on their coal fire grill, which gives it a wonderful flavour. Combined with their homemade breads you are in for a serious treat.
Yard and Coop is all about serving up proper fried chicken with tasty sides, classic cocktails and craft beers. ‘Proper’ fried chicken means buttermilk chicken that you’d find in the US. The chicken is super crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and comes served with their traditional sides, which are simply delicious.
Creamy shakes and a fried chicken dish with Yorkshire pudding and gravy are other must-orders.
