Cane & Grain, Manchester

Last weekend I popped up to my university town of Manchester for a rather messy reunion with some friends.

The weather was absolutely glorious, and in Manchester, you can always be sure of a good night out. A little too good, in my case – I was feeling particularly fragile after dancing the night away, and was in desperate need of a hangover cure.

We’d heard great things about Cane & Grain, but it was when we took a look at the menu that we knew it was just what the doctor ordered – fries with delicious toppings, wings, burgers, shakes – the works.

The cocktail list also looked good, although we were in no state to be ordering anything of the kind, and stuck to coffee.

Between the two of us, we had the hot wings, smoked corn on the cob, truffle cheese fries, and jalapeno hush puppies – a fried jalapeno and cheese ball. We decided to be vaguely healthy, too, and ordered the sauteed greens and beans as an afterthought.

Everything really hit the spot – the truffle cheese fries were a highlight, as were the sauteed greens and beans, which are definitely worth getting!

It was all absolutely delicious, and a brilliant hangover remedy – between us, the meal cost £12 each, which was a total bargain. I’d definitely recommend you pop in for an American-style meal if you’re ever in the Northern Quarter!

We also popped into Fig & Sparrow for a coffee, which was lovely – although prepare to be tempted by all the amazing stock in their shop, it’s all very hard to resist.
