There is Ethiopian food in the city centre! I got an email from Habesha Restaurant confirming that all of their vegetarian food is also vegan.

*gasp* I'm kinda wishing I booked my holiday to Manchester instead of Dublin now. I want some Ethiopian food.

ETA - I'm now seriously considering going to the vegan festival. I'll ask Mike what he thinks - we might be able to get there for doors open, get a bunch of stuff, then have lunch at the Ethiopian place (if they do lunch) and head home.

My husband and I are going to Manchester for a weekend soon, I have seen all the nice food options...but he's moaning it'll all cost too much. He's a vegetarian who is quite happy living off a £1 pasty...so my question is, where can I take him that is...well, cheapish?

I booked a return train ticket from Edinburgh this week and it was still really pretty cheap (£20 for the return on East Coast). I'm going to stay for the after party though and crash out at a friend's place or hostel.

Tickets booked for the veg fest! We'll be there bang on 11 and will head by 1 (probably earlier, tbh). We're gonna get lunch at Habesha probably around 1 or 2 if anyone wants to join us!

I've been trying to go to that Ethiopian place for years and something has always happened to prevent me. There also just seems to be one plate option but that's still the closest Ethiopian food to my house that isn't in my house. Let me know how it is anyone who gets there!

Awesome! My overall plans aren't finalised yet but I arrive in Manchester on Saturday at 10:15 and will leave on Sunday about 6pm. I was thinking of going for (lateish) breakfast at V Revolution on Sunday if anyone wants to join me?

Habesha is quite a long way from the veg fest venue (which is in Chorlton). I was thinking of maybe having lunch at the World Peace Cafe or Bistro 1847, which are both vegetarian cafe type places.

Sadly the Chorlton branch of 1847 closed down a few weeks back but was a bit upscale, not a cafe type place Imogen.

Oddest, part of the Odd Bar chain of 3, do a vegan breakfast til after lunch (http://oddbar.co.uk).

Oh well, World Peace Cafe it is then :)

Oddest sounds like it might be a good Saturday breakfast plan then, as I get in at 10:15 in the morning. Thanks for the tips :)

I just got back from a great weekend in Manchester. We ate breakfast at Teatime Collective yesterday, followed by ice-cream there (the choc-orange flavour was amazing!), had two lots of Go Falafel wraps (the surprise hit filling was pickled turnip), dinner at Bistro 1847 (small portions but very interesting flavours, and nice presentation, particularly the churros, although they weren't what I think of as churros), breakfast today at V Revolution, although they didn't have a breakfast on the menu as such so we had maple pecan cake, burgers, a hot-dog to share and took away a Veggo bar (yum!).

Also went to Unicorn grocery and sat outside with coffees from the cart outside after buying a few things and wishing I wasn't limited to what I could carry home on the train. They had special non-curdle soya milk so I tried some of that even though I don't usually take milk in drinks. It was nice.

There's a new veggie Chinese restaurant in Withington called Lotus Vegetarian Kitchen: http://www.lotusvegetariankitchen.com/

I went last week and it was ace! Just to pre-warn anyone who doesn't like faux meats, there are a lot on the menu (I've heard a wee bit of criticism about it). There is a section for vegetable/tofu dishes though and some amazing looking dumpling/won ton soups. For mock meat lovers like myself it was heaven! I had prawn toasts, bbq ribs, satay skewers and spring rolls to start. Followed by fish fillets in a chilli tomato sauce. I even had deep fried soya milk for dessert (sounds weird - tastes delicious!). There was so much choice, most of the menu is labelled vegan and the staff are really lovely. Prices are a little higher than your average Chinese takeaway (around £7.50 for a main dish), but then again the ingredients were fresher and different to what I usually end up with.

Really hoping this place does well, even better than Yeopan's in Chorlton

The Brewdog pub on Oxford Street has a vegan burger (called The Vegan Burger on the menu) which is hella good. The seitan they use is deee-licious.

Has anyone been to Simple recently? Last time I tried to get food there they had no vegan options and acted totally clueless when I asked about it. I had a little tantrum outside :-(

I agree that the dough desserts are uninspriring now. Raw oats, raisins and ice cream??? Really?? 1. I can make it myself, 2. I got jaw ache, 3. it was too sweet.

I am also sad to report that I found out this weekend that Dandelion & Burdoch has been sold and is no longer vegan. The site says they have had to deal with family issues overseas and keep a look out for new things in 2015 :-(

At least we still have v revs, and I can report that both Bakerie and pie and ale in the Northern quarter are vegan friendly and able to offer delicious, filling and 'special' feeling meals. They even have vegan wine.

Mike and I have decided to pop to Manchester for a couple of days at the end of the month. Is there anything new and unmissable? Is Teatime Collective still our best breakfast option? We'll be there for breakfast on the Saturday if that makes a difference.
