Following today’s awesome photo shoot (more of that later), the girlies and I headed for a bite to eat. We opted for Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.
Perfect for a plateful of yummy grub, good portions and comfortable surroundings, Home Sweet Home is located on Edge Street (next to Common Bar) in the Northern Quarter. It has a comfortable, homely interior with nick-nacks on the walls and an eclectic mix of furniture. This seemed like the ideal spot for a girly dinner, washed down with a glass or two of Prosecco – and we chose well!
We were all ravenous and frantically perusing the menu and discussing what we should have. The menu features the ever-popular pulled-pork, so I knew I’d be happy and we all chose a different variation of the porky goodness. I went for the Sweet Carolina burger, which combines BBQ pulled pork, a breaded chicken escalope, bacon and coleslaw on a sweet brioche bun. I was not disappointed when it arrived stacked-up in a tower of goodness. I upgraded to sweet potato fries which were absolutely moreish with a crispy bite and complimented the pulled-pork fabulously. I was very satisfied once I’d demolished the plateful and happy with the authentic-tasting smokey BBQ pork. I think my only comment would be that the buns were a little on the dry side…could be worse!
Lauren went for the Pulled Pork roll, which does what it says on the tin…
And Lucy opted for the Pulled Pork Pile-Up, which is smokey BBQ pork piled-up high on top of sweet potato fries and served with jalapenos and Carolina Slaw. She was happy as didn’t have bread, so ticked the boxes all round…
We all cleared our plates with satisfied sighs and full tummies. And at approx £15 p/head for food and drinks, we couldn’t complain at the value.
All in all, Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester was the perfect choice for a girly dinner on a Sunday early-evening. The service is sweet and friendly, the menu is reasonably-priced and the surroundings are comfy but trendy enough for ladies that lunch :-). I know from previous visits that their desserts and freshly made cakes are also well-worth tucking into, however this time we opted for an extra glass of Prosecco instead.
I’d certainly recommend you visit here for lunch or dinner as I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. I’d also be interested in hearing what the rest of the food is like as I am always swayed by pulled-pork and should really branch-out on my next visit and go for something different!
Let me know what you think!
