Food: Yard & Coop

It’s really cheep, cheep, cheep [heh]

Chicken really is the pulled pork of 2015, and it’s really good for a hangover.

Anywhere that sells an alcoholic milkshake that tastes like the bottom of a screwball ice cream gets a thumbs up from me. I also tried the ‘Bloody Sorted’ which adds a dash of gin to give your average Bloody Mary an even bigger kick.yard and coop
Food wise I went for a basket of chicken breast, Yard & Coop style with Bourbon BBQ sauce along with chips and gravy – cause I’m a true Northerner.

If you’re feeling super hungry I’d also recommend the Onion Petals with Chorizo and Battered Salted Jalapenos.

The prices are really good too, I was completely full and had only spent £10 (excluding beverages)

coop

Book a table, or your very own coop here and have a look at the menu for a bit of a dribble.

Day Visited: Saturday
Time: 2pm

Pie Lord

‘I queued up for 15 minutes for this pie for you, make sure you have it with mash and gravy ok!?’

‘ok’

Lord of the Pies, based in Stockport, is no stranger to a queue at Lunch Time.

I went for the British Beef & Blacksticks Blue – hands down the best pie I have ever had. Team with some steamed tenderstem broccoli, kale and gravy and you’ll be in pie heaven

lord of pieslord of pieslord of pies

They do a whole range of pies along with soups, ploughmans lunches, weekly specials and even pies for Weddings, instead of the cake..

For more updates and nice pie pictures head over to their Facebook and Twitter

she’s coming: Part Deux

Please note, this has now been changed to August 15th & 16th

If the announcement of Hello Kitty Live  didn’t get you excited, then people of Manchester, get involved in this

Hello Kitty will be traveling to the Trafford Centre on 29th & 30th August. Expect photo ops and loads of cute stuff to buy along with the chance to get your nails done by Sophy Robson.

Last time I met Hello Kitty in person was at Selfridges in the Trafford Centre. This was in 2007 so judge the photo all you want. I’ll get a classier one next time round

See you there!
