My Thai Manchester Northern QuarterThai
The clue’s in the name and My Thai serves up dishes inspired by the street food markets of Bangkok – as bright and vibrant as the decor in Manchester’s second “shack”, following John Dalton Street where the small chain first branched out to from its Yorkshire roots.
“We don’t serve fast food, we serve fresh food as fast as we can!” say the My Thai team, a trio from Yorkshire and Thailand aiming to offer authentic Thai cuisine and informal eating at affordable prices. Cooked to order, just ask if you fancy a bit more spice in your life and the chefs will comply – be warned, though, Thai food is generally pretty hot anyway. Sitting beside your pad Thai, chow mein, noodle soups of various types and green, red or yellow curries is the Foodie’s Menu. This is where the fun starts, with ingredients including spicy crispy pork, dried shrimp, holy basil and, er, morning glory.
The Northern Quarter branch differs from John Dalton Street with the addition to the menu of more curries, including braised beef panang or massaman style, and more dishes with jasmine rice, including pad gratiem, featuring onion in garlic and black peppers and your choice of beef, pork, chicken or prawns.
