Love food? Love drink? Love music?  Then you best get yourself down to the latest offering from B.Eat Street, Manchester. 

#UpInYourGrill has set up shop for 10 weeks at Brownsfield Mill on Tariff Street in the Northern Quarter.
Hosting a delicious selection of street food vendors and cocktail makers. This is my new favourite spot for a post-work Friday night or a Saturday date night with the husband.

Last Friday's beautiful Manchester weather (yes those three words are being used in the same sentence!) certainly helped make our decision to head over to the Northern Quarter. We arrived around 8.30pm and there was a little queue to contend with.  Thankfully the queue rapidly disappeared and we wandered down a rustic stone path into this grounds of a run down warehouse.  Extra bonus points to B.Eat Street for the very on-trend location. 

We had our priorities straight and headed directly to the first bar for a glass of thirst-quenching cider.  Next up, food.  There were rather substantial queues for Solita and Reds True BBQ but the jerk chicken of Eat and Sweet had caught my eye.  I opted for a jerk chicken split (jerk chicken on a dumpling roll) and was not disappointed.  The ridiculously tender chicken was coated in a tangy and spicy jerk marinade and the soft dumpling wasn't as heavy as I'd expected.  It went down a treat.  

After refuelling on a gin and tonic (it wouldn't be a Friday night without one) we headed to Holy Basil for some 'Bang Thai-dy fries' covered in Thai Green Curry sauce. Unfortunately the chips were a tad dry and I would have added much more sauce, given the option - it was just too yummy. The feel-good sound track was provided by HomoElectric and had most people tapping their feet or head bopping at some point.  

Fab night and very cool vibes all round.  I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking for something to do in Manchester on a Friday or Saturday evening.  #NoExcuses

  1. Oooh I really want to check this out before it's over! The food looks awesome. You're totally right though- a Friday night would not be complete without a G&T! x

    1. It's definitely a must for the summer. I'm going to make sure I get to go again before it leaves. I do love my G&T's! :-) x
