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.

I went to Manchester for a meeting last weekend and had a pretty nice pizza for dinner at Dough, then an absolutely fantastic burger for lunch at V Revolution (it was the satay burger and it was amazing!) followed by a piece of jammy dodger layer cake, which was as delicious as it sounds :)

Bistro 1847 has just brought back Sunday brunch, so you could look into that. Are you going to be staying in the city centre? If you're out near Withington, breakfasts at Fuel are always good, and there's a really nice Chinese restaurant that opened in the last year, Lotus Vegetarian Kitchen. Well worth a visit.

Manchester event (bit rare!!) on Tue 26th Jan at 7pm. £20.
https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/vegan-st ... 0414696908

From the event page:

"Join MasterChef's Jackie Kearney at Tampopo Corn Exchange for a very special tasting night for her new book Vegan Street Food.

To celebrate the launch of her new book 'Vegan Street Food" Jackie Kearney is coming to Tampopo to prepare a vegan banquet so delicious that we recommend this event to carnivores, veggies, vegans alike!

Jackie arrived on our TV screens as a MasterChef contestant back in 2011. After finishing in the final 4 she has since developed her own street food business and food consultancy "The Hungry Gecko", won awards for her street food and now published her first recipe book inspired by her travels around Asia, and her desire to breathe new life into meat and dairy free cooking.

After a cocktail and canapé reception, Jackie will be serving up a supper club style dinner of recipes from her new book. The book will be available to buy on the night too, and Jackie will be on hand to talk about the recipes and her unique approach to vegan cooking.

A fabulous chance to enjoy some amazing food, and meet some inspiring people too!

We have a small number of tickets for this special event set aside especially for Tampopo customers. Tickets are £18 and include a Prosecco cocktail and canape reception, followed by a supper club style banquet of dishes inspired by delicious street food from across Asia. Additional drinks can also be purchased from the bar."

Just arrived in MCR - anything new and exciting for me to try? Especially interested in Chorlton and Beech Road. I'm enjoying a beer at Marble this evening.

Where is the best cake these days? Is it still V Rev? Are Milly & Dilly selling anywhere? (I really miss Sweet Tooth as I always stay around the corner from where it used to be.)

V Rev are pretty often doing their own baking these days (which tends to be much more adventurous than Lily & Dilly).

Happy Cow seems to keep up with vegan options much better than I do these days so probably worth checking that! I know there is a pasta place in town doing some good vegan options. I think Handmade Burger Co. are still doing their 50% off Veganuary offer til the end of Feb (4 vegan options though I wasn't crazy about them).

If you ask on this FB group you'll probably get about 600 answers so always handy if you're stuck! https://www.facebook.com/groups/veganmanchester/

Thanks for the tips and the link. Love Juice on Beech Road, Chorlton had amazing cakes as usual. I did try V Rev but (as I find more often then not when I visit) they didn't have any cake. I found the cake from Unicorn a bit too 'wholesome' for my taste.

Fab savoury food from Lotus and De Nada in Chorlton. Great beer at Marble (esp the Earl Grey IPA).

I went to Teatime Collective just outside of the city centre at the weekend and it was super. A really innovative vegan menu - and cake and ice cream. Super duper!

Another nice discovery recently.... Foundation Coffee House on Lever Street in the Northern Quarter (next to Fred Aldous) has 3 different kinds of hot chocolate that can be made vegan, and usually have at least 3 different kinds of cake :)
