MORE MANCUNIAN CURRY TIPS FOR OUR AMERICAN VISITORS

Three Manchester pubs by 4pm; time for a curry.

I bet you think I always go to This & That,

but no, Manchester is awash with cheap eats, and this is one for the Southworth’s list when they make it to God’s Own Pub & Curry Country again.

From the Angel, head through the street art and down Oldham Street.

DO NOT STOP AT THE CASTLE. Well, not of you’ve already had three pints, but in other circumstances fill your boots.

Cafe Marhaba which I confess I don’t remember from the famous Curry Cafe section of the Central Manchester pub guides of the ’90s is hidden in the alley known as Back Piccadilly, behind the worlds’s worst Wetherspoons (honest).

Only open weekdays and not late, it’s a cracker. A steaming dish of tender lamb cooked in spinach and crisp naan to scoop it up with. £8, not as cheap as the Rice & Three merchants but those can resemble stew. This is curry. But let’s let Dick and Dave be the judge of that; those Yanks know their curry.

OK, beer – tick, curry – tick, time for a gig. And a cathedral.

  1. Dick and Dave plan on being sprawled in the street next fall from an overdose of keema and korma. We’re counting on Matt to wheel us back to our hotel.

  2. God that looks fantastic. I’m still waiting for your Mughali Taste review (providing you don’t get dragged into one of the scary shops on the way up Bury New rd.)
