Awesome, thanks! I'll definitely have at least one meal there. I kinda wish my train back was later so I could eat more!

Rachel, I'm moving to Manchester next week and, unless my job hunt goes spectacularly well, I'll probably be free on the Friday if you want a lunch/afternoon tea buddy. I don't know the city very well at all yet, but I'm keen to explore and might be less likely to get lost with some company!

The only thing I can't do is the evening of the 15th (which is, of course, prime time for stuffing ourselves with wine and Korean food) because I'm there for the Depeche Mode concert (doors at 6.30, but I have seats so could probably rock up a bit later).


D'oy. I work Friday afternoons/evenings and 10am-3pm on Saturdays so I don't think I'll be free when you are. Enjoy the concert!

Boo-urns! Oh well. I'm really starting to like Manchester, so I'll probably be back.

Teatime Collective's big breakfast was epic. I even liked the black pudding! It was so filling that I didn't even get a shake like I'd planned.

I blogged about finding vegan food in places in Manchester's Northern Quarter for this year's MoFo

I will be eating at a new Indian restaurant in Manchester in a few days here: http://www.sanskrutirestaurant.co.uk/about.php
It's a vegetarian place and apparently they are good at catering for vegans. I will report back!

I'll be eyeing this thread, I am applying for a conference in Manchester in March or April, can't remember right now. Korean food is definitely on my list then!

I forgot to post about my visit in December. I was a bit underwhelmed and disappointed by Teatime Collective, I visited twice but there were no cakes and very limited savoury options both times. I had a mushroom pie which was okay but was just served on its own (I'd phoned ahead to order it so it would be ready but I'd assumed it would have potatoes and veg with it to make it a proper meal). The second time nothing much was on offer apart from ice cream so I had some of that but thought it was only okay, nothing to write home about.
The other thing to say about Teatime Collective is that it's a little bit out of the way. I don't know how you would get there on public transport (anyone local care to let us know if/how you can?) but luckily I had my car with me this trip.

I had nice food in V Revolution, the staff were lovely and let me eat in even though they were just about to close (it was too cold to take away and eat). Sadly they didn't have any cake on offer though because the cakes I've seen pics of from there look amazing.

Having been unexpectedly cake deprived for several days I was delighted to find On The Corner (Beech Road, Chorlton) had several yummy vegan cakes. The blondie was amazing and I went back to get another to bring home but there were two lovely frosted cakes sold by the slice as well. As well as coffee and cake, on another occasion I had a lovely soup there but I think they could easily veganise some of the dishes and specials to increase the choice of vegan savoury food. I'll be back in a couple of weeks and will definitely be checking them out again.

Hi people,

I'm very new to PPK and glad to see a thread about Manchester :)

Currently, my favourite vegan friendly restaurant would be Punjab tandoori restaurant on the Curry Mile as it's one of the only places I know that do dosas. It's also very, very cheap and has a huge mixed menu. Nice to see posts from others so I'll be venturing out more now I've found other places to eat.

Does anyone know a good place in Manchester for vegan sushi? And does Koreana definitely have plenty of vegan options? The menu only marks vegetarian, but I'm assuming a lot of things will be safe.

Koreana doesn't have loads but there's definitely plenty to eat for a couple of trips. I was lucky the first time I went and got a really helpful waitress who spoke great english and kept bobbing in and out to the kitchen to ask about eggs (I think they're the only issue about the things that are marked as vegetarian).

Also, my husband has been doing a course in Manchester and keeps praising Ning in the NQ. Their vegan things are clearly labelled and he has loved everything he's tried. Also, I've been to Bakerie a few times, also with clearly labelled vegan options, but not yet their pie shop which always apparently has a vegan pie!!!

Thank you Efcliz - I've been to Ning and Pie&Ale (but not Bakerie - is it quite fancy there?), both of which I liked a lot. There's only one savoury vegan pie, but two dessert options.

I got a really nice email back from Koreana giving me a list of things that can be easily veganised, mostly just by omitting egg, and telling me to ask for Jon if there's any confusion with the waiter/waitress. I think I'll try to go next week and check it out.

Oklahoma cafe have now veganised their Oreo milkshake and Skippy milkshake (peanut butter and banana). They also do a fair few vegan options on the menu and there are usually a couple of vegan cakes going on as well.

And for vegan junk food - V Revolution is awesome. They sell vegan wares too. Vegusto etc. Aaaaand non-vegan but vegan friendly - Luck, Lust Liquor and Burn do the BEST dirty vegan breakfast burrito.

This makes me incredibly happy - as do the giant baked sweet potatoes at Oklahoma. Vegan chilli and hummus...yum.

On my recent visit I had amazing food at Laughing Budda in Didsbury. Burgers aren't really my thing but I enjoyed the two I had at V Revolution (one was a brilliantly tasty special with walnut vegusto) and the toe cakes I tried were very good too. On The Corner in Chorlton was good for cake and soup again.

Sad to see Dough is no longer doing Lily & Dilly desserts though and the vegan options were uninspiring in my opinion.

Toe cakes??

I will be in Manchester in April as well, I've only been once before. Are there any interesting exhibitions or the like on in April that I should see?

The People's History Museum is great to visit regardless of whether they have a special exhibition on or not.

Don't waste your time looking for toe cakes in Manchester - I meant to type two cakes and they are well worth seeking out!!

rentaghost - okay, will do!

Imogen - thanks, will check it out!

Sorry for asking about non-food places, for some reason I missed the "places to eat" part of the thread title even though it's right in the title! I didn't mean to derail.

I'm going to be visiting the Manchester Vegan Fair on 17 May 2014 - anyone else going to be there?
