SoLita started life on the quirky corners of the Northern Quarter in Manchester and has recently expanded it's meaty goodness to the suburbs of Didsbury. This restaurant isn't for the faint hearted or those who prefer the healthy side of life...SoLita serves nothing but hearty, warm your belly kind of comfort food.
The last time I visited the one in the NQ I played it safe and went for the bean burger....but this time round I was obviously feeling more daring (and hungry) so ordered the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger with 60/40 mash. Think KFC but with its posh pants on! The chicken was so succulent and the batter....mouth watering. The gravy was also amazing, it's a shame you only get a small pot. The only thing I was a bit miffed about was having to pay an extra £1.90 to swap my chips for mash (serves me right for trying to be healthy) and the portion was tiny...this however was justified when the manager kindly brought me out another dish of the buttery stuff. All was forgiven!
Tim went for the KFB burger, I can't remember what was in it but I did taste it and the bourbon sauce it was drowned in was mega.
They always have amazing specials on the go too, don't know if you can see them on the 2nd pic but this time round the 'Breville without a cause' (a cheese on toast burger) was the star of the show however I didn't fancy leaving having had a heart attack.
I have been to the likes of Meat Liquor in London and I have to say that SoLita is better, so next time your in Manchester make sure you pay a visit.
