It’s my new best friend
Swerve getting your Instax Mini from Urban Outfitters, grab one on Amazon (aka Amazin) for 1/3 less. Try and remember how many photos you have used from your film to avoid disappointment when you go to take a great shot, and there aren’t any left.
Standard film can be written on, or you can get yourself some cute ready film, like my Rilakkuma ones below.
How do you display your Instax Mini photos?
If we were lucky enough to get the ingredients for LLLB‘s Chicken Blasts with Hawaiian BBQ sauce it would go something like this;
• super fresh & tender chicken breasts (chicken must have fallen from heaven)
• breadcrumbs soaked in the blood of Jesus Christ
• BBQ sauce made from the tears of the sweetest angels
On this visit I went for the Americana Dreamin’ Burger, Barrio fries & Chicken Blasts with Hawaiian BBQ sauce. Their burgers are real good, fries are a bit meh but the Chicken Blasts are something I would take a bullet for.
I really do like the food at LLLB but the service & drinks put me off going. There’s always a lot of waiting around and trying to make contact with their door host or waiting on staff. It’s pretty painful at times. On my last two visits my waitress has got the order wrong, but what I ordered saved the visit. Their cocktail menu needs work and their Bloody Mary tastes like it’s got a big-ass oxo cube thrown in. I thought it would be fourth time lucky, my stomach was happy but the rest of my body was left sad

Easily one of my favourite places to go in Manchester.
Their pizzas are proper delicious and there is a wide range to choose from. Their cocktails are mainly tequila based (which is fine with me) and there is a good range of spirits & beer. The music is always good too but the best part has to be the pizza. Three of us shared the Best E which was packed full of spicy chicken, pulled pork, ham, salami and pepperoni and washed it down with a Dizzee Mescal.
Their Happy Hour is 7pm – 9pm daily and includes 2-4-1 cocktails and £1.50 slices of pizza. You don’t need (and can’t make) a reservation so I advise getting down before Happy Hour, or just before it finishes for some cheap cocktails and a seat.
Honest, I reckon this is the best pizza in Manchester
