solita, manchester

by thinhungrygirl

SoLiTa is synonymous with great food in manchester.

based in the north quarter, just off the main strip, it’s the place to go if you want any of the following – burgers with amazing names, friendly service, fried cheese, bbq, or just meat in general.

our latest visit was last wednesday to celebrate the other half’s promotion. walking in at around 7pm, it was busy with around a 20 minute wait. we headed downstairs for a drink before we were seated upstairs.

with their specials usually taking up the majority of my twitter feed, it’s easy to get excited about the menu. they know how to keep things fresh and entice you back again and again and again.

we started with the ribs, wings and things (which our lovely waiter scott complimented me on ability to say. it’s hard.)

solita (2)it went down a treat, especially the breaded jalapenos – those things are delicious.

i went straight into the once in a lifetime burger for main; i was tempted by the mac daddy, which another member of the party had, so simply perved on his instead.

solita (9)it really was a thing of beauty (shoddy photo though…) – deep fried mac and cheese bun with a juicy burger in between. served up with green bean fries, hidden in the corner of that photo, which were a great change from fries, the whole meal was devoured.

solita (6)my burger, made up of a patty, fried chicken, bbq sauce, onion ring and pulled pork, was dream-worthy. it’s the way forward with burgers – pile everything on and to hell with it.

solita (3)the hot dog, topped with onions, ketchup and mustard, was a traditional choice but easy to get wrong. solita gets it so right. the cheesy spiral fries, covered in what tasted like velveeta cheese sauce, are usually reserved for after a night out, but they shouldn’t be confined to that. cheesy fries should be on more menus.

meaty cheesey heaven.
