Manchester has recently seen a boom in the number and variety of fine-dining destinations around the city, as well as managing to maintain century-old, traditional dishes that form a significant part in its culture and history. In the city centre alone there are over 300 restaurants, offering visitors and residents alike a diverse selection of international and national cuisines. It seems as though every week there is another restaurant or bar opening, offering a distinct dining experience, from both established chains and independent eateries. Unique to Manchester and a big draw for a lot of its visitors is the famous ‘Curry Mile’ in Rusholme, where there is a melting pot of over 70 restaurants specialising in South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. As well as luxe restaurants, there are also a string of kebab shops and take-away joints that attract large crowds, especially in the early hours. Mancunians are known to enjoy a beer as the ideal accompaniment to a meal, and there are several working breweries in the local environs that serve the multitude of bars and pubs across the city. The nightlife here is legendary, a large part of which is down to the huge student community and hot, young music scene that has emerged over the last few years – everything from gourmet ale pubs to world-famous DJ sets in warehouses is served up in this electric city.
A regional dish that is close to the hearts of many Mancunians is Manchester Tart, a pudding that was first put on the pages of recipe books by Mrs Beeton, and consequently made hugely popular during the 1940s and 50s. The Tart consists of shortcrust pastry, which is filled with a layer of jam and custard, and occasionally added with coconut and cherry. Best served with a generous portion of whipped cream!
