Fun time then? Looks lush…
Yes mate, had a great time albeit one night only. Manze’s was great as ever, lovely staff looked after us in our delicate state
Stunning pre-gig meal at Kricket in Soho last night. Highly recommended. I’m trying to avoid being a foodie wanker, so pics taken from Trip Advisor. The Butternut Squash curry was next level.
That chicken looks pretty awesome too.
Really good. With curry leaf mayo and corriander chutney
Ah thanks. Been meaning to try that for a while now.
Home delivery from Manze’s coinciding with Mrs.C working in Glasgow today. Double for me it is then
was watching Rick Stein’s BBC trip around Spain and he found actual proper pies in Galicia which looked amazing. A real struggle to find them where I live! Will hopef get over there at some point
Is that a bottle of Manzes own medicine? Like Gaviscon?
Haha it’s their chilli vinegar
Can we keep it on track?
I love a posh dinner me, but there’s a lot of non pie related chat going on…
Keep it pie.
Ace looking P&M here, where’s this can I ask?
Staying on the topic of pies, me and the missus treated ourselves to some of these beauty’s on Sunday. Baldys Pies of Wigan. Soon to be available online as well
We we’re chatting about the pie we were eating last night and I mentioned Diana’s Diner, we realised we were both working in Covent Garden at the time and both went there independently before we met. Bloody loved that place.
Took Mrs Howler to Jacuzzi today for lunch. Was totally ace.
Worth it for the wifi name alone, although the food and venue are both spectacular!
Manze’s on Chapel Market been closed for a few years (used to love pie, mash and liquor in there), but the “For Sale” sign has disappeared recently and looks like there is a bit of activity going on inside. Peering through the window, it still has the beautiful tiling, wooden booths and kitchen fittings in place.Hopefully it will reopen as some sort of cafe/ bar along the lines of the old Cooke’s in Dalston (which has had a faithful restoration).
Not, pie & mash, but also lost the wonderful old school Italian cafe, Alpino, a few doors down from there. (Landlord jacked their rent up by 30% apparently, place has been empty ever since).
Thankfully, the family who run it have moved to a new site across the road, but it hasn’t got the same 50’s time warp fixtures and fittings of the now abandoned premises.
