Kala

Sometimes I play this game in my head, where if I could erase one entire boxset from my brain, just so I could rewatch it all again with the same glorious feelings of anticipation and excitement, what would I pick? Each and every time, it would be "Lost". If I was trying to be a … Continue reading Kala

Bab

"Kebabs Worth Sitting Down For" - the claim that Bab lives by, and when they say sit, they don't mean on the curb adjacent to the midnight taxi rank. Found tucked away on Little Lever Street of the NQ, Bab's servings are a far cry from the 'babs you'll see in the clutched hands of Manchester's … Continue reading Bab

Tre Ciccio

If I wasn't so painfully...not-Italian, I would bet my life, that I had, honest to god, Sicilian crossed with Napolitano, juicy marinara running through my veins. I love everything about Italy, the culture, the language, the passion, the urgency of conversation, the food, THE FOOD!

Tariff and Dale

Manchester in the sunshine is simply glorious. Smiles are more rife than hay fever, wool coats which were worn just last week are replaced with loose linen and camisoles and restaurants open their bi-folding windowed doors, allowing life to spill onto the streets in a deliciously "summer fete" fashion. I was working away one Friday … Continue reading Tariff and Dale

SiOP Shop

I have the teeniest, tidbit of a recommendation for you with this post, but though it may be short, I can promise you it's extra sweet and cream-filled *insert drool emoji here*. Found in the depths of the Northern Quarter, SiOP Shop is now the official home to Blawd Bakery, known for previously making magic … Continue reading SiOP Shop
