Cocka Doodle Moo (Stockport)

Manchester City Centre has more than its fair share of burger joints, but there aren’t too many in the back-waters south of Manchester. So not wanting to travel too far, my wife and I arranged a visit to Cocka Doodle Moo with family. Benefiting from being located

The Almost New Almost Famous (Manchester)

Image is all about context. If you’ve ever stared in bemusement at someone wearing shades in a dark nightclub, you’ll know what I mean. Almost Famous was a good fit for the Northern Quarter, with its Bohemian atmosphere and trendy bars. In its new surroundings, on the

Burger Joint (New York)

New York is a place of hidden treasures. One such treasure – the simply named “Burger Joint” – is hidden behind a large velour curtain in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The hotel itself gives no clue as to the existence of the Burger

Mud Crab Cafe

My wife and I visited the Mud Crab Cafe / Diner in Didsbury on a Thursday lunchtime. When we arrived, well after the lunctime rush, the restaurant was still relatively busy. The restaurant had a relaxed vibe to it and we were quickly shown to our table


I visited SoLIta (South of Little Italy) mainly out of curiosity. A friend had been there for his birthday lunch and made an astonishing claim: he had just eaten the world’s ‘best burger’! SoLIta is a small and stylish restaurant, with a great atmosphere, hidden away in
