    Bunny Jackson’s

    American

    Bunny Jackson’s touts itself as a dive bar and, while there is indeed ‘cold beer, frozen margaritas and a lot of whisky’, you can still line your stomachs as burgers, bar snacks and BJ’s wings are served every day from noon until nine.

    Northern Quarter

    El Capo

    Mexican

    El Capo is home to authentic Mexican food and around 200 varieties of tequila. It’s small, but perfectly formed with Day of the Dead paraphernalia, colourful tiles and an inviting atmosphere.

    The menu is an appetising selection of small plates, wings, massive burritos and soft shell tacos. Prepare for some BIG Mexican flavours – this is food with plenty of personality and flair.

    Peck & Yard Manchester

    Pan Asian

    Ok, so Peck & Yard in Ancoats is more of a takeaway than a bona fide restaurant but there are seats and tables and the fried chicken is the best in the area so it’s made it into the Confidential Guide – hope that doesn’t ruffle too many feathers.

    This place doesn’t have much in the way of online presence but if you know, you know, and the Pan-Asian fried chicken has plenty of presence – all slathered in a choice of eleven different home-made sauces.

    Caribbean

    Caribbean vibes and Caribbean flavours are big at Pull Up at the top end of the Northern Quarter, where atmosphere and authenticity are key words and you will leave fit to burst, especially if you try tackling the famous Hench Box all on your lonesome.

    Red’s True Barbecue

    American

    “A twisted fairground of worship”, apparently, and if it’s meat you put on a pedestal, then you’ve come to the right place – Red’s True Barbecue is a carnivore’s heaven of a mini-chain, complete with open plan pitmaster action to watch those cuts get the smoking treatment.

    Yard & Coop Manchester

    American

    We’d rather see a restaurant that does one thing well than one that does a wide variety of dishes to the same average standard. Yard & Coop Manchester is firmly in the former category. It serves buttermilk fried chicken and that’s about it, unless you’re a veggie in which case you can have halloumi instead.
