Frickin’ Hell Mann Burger at Almost Famous

I’ve not written a foodie post in a while, so this one will knock your socks off! Like burgers? Like Mac n’ Cheese? Yeh I thought so! Well you will be drooling at the limited edition Frickin’ Hell Mann Burger that was recently available at Almost Famous. It was pure bliss!

The restaurant is huge – taking over a stunning old building on King Street in Manchester (right by Jamie’s Italian). I mean it’s seriously vast! We went on a Friday night and as expected, the place was packed with happy diners wearing bibs and happily tucking into their lobster. Continue reading
