I will survive: the best hangover food in Manchester

3 months ago

So you overdid it on the mince pie martinis, it happens. Rather than sinking into a pit of regret and existential dread, why not embrace the one good thing about hangovers: hangover food.

If you can’t fill your face with high salt, high fat, high sugar eats when you’re hungover, when can you? Your body needs replenishing, your mood needs dragging up off the floor, and your soul needs a big warm food hug.

Here we’ve listed our go-to spots for sorting ourselves out after a big night out in Manchester. It’s a mix of comfort food (hello cheese toasties at Northern Soul) and nourishing, restorative options like the nutrition bowls at The Green Lab. Top tip: a bowl of chicken karaage ramen at Maki & Ramen offers both.

Or if you’re a hair-of-the-dog type, head to Trove Marble Street – they do a kimchi bloody mary that’ll sort you out in no time. Follow it up with a Full English at Atlas Bar and you’ll be ready to take on the world, or at least the rest of the day.

    Cult pizzeria Ciaooo may not be as well-known as some of its beautifully blistered-based brethren, but that’s all to the good. At least there’s a chance of getting a table. As it is, it’s often full of savvy locals who know just where to get some of the best pizzas in Manchester – on Swan Street at the top of Great Ancoats Street it transpires.

    Service is excellent and the pizzas are even better. There is a wide selection with a mix of classics and modern inventions. Most importantly, the dough rises above its competitors. It is puffed-up pillowy perfection.

    Yard & Coop Manchester

    Bars

    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.
