Lamb Skewers 
Wolf at the Door
Every time I go to Wolf at the Door, I opt for this dish without a doubt. I also tell everyone I know to try it too. It’s succulent, juicy, packed full of flavour and most importantly melts in your mouth. The lamb is topped with a lamb fat yeast flakes sprinkled over the top to add a crunch. Bloody delicious and you need to try it. – Alex Watson


Scrambled Egg & Smoked Salmon
The Bay Horse
Easily my favourite spot in Manchester is The Bay Horse. It’s got everything you need, including INCREDIBLE pies. I recently discovered they do an eggcellent brunch menu too. So I opted for a salmon and scrammy eggs. Served on a buttery sourdough slice, this was a great start to my Sunday morning and I will probably do it again this weekend. – Jale Hardy 


Avocado on Toast
The Ivy
Did you know it’s been a whole year since The Ivy opened it’s doors – time flies eh?! To celebrate I bobbed down for a delish breakfast and to see their winter transformation. Keeping it classic I went for avo on toast, an absolute staple to my diet. Of course these eggs were poached to perfection and the yolk oozed out as soon as you cut in. And if nothing else, how pretty the restaurant is makes it taste ten times better. – India Morris


The Princess Street
Lawn Coffee
We got a chance to sample the new menu at Lawn Coffee and on it there’s a a new sharing platter complete with plenty of delicious cheeses and cured meats. The new offering comes with a later opening and some boozy drinks, including festive mulled wine. It’s the perfect homely, relaxing and winter escape on these cold months. There’s nothing better than cheese and wine is there!? – Petr Kaiser


Yard & Coop
So last night I headed to Yard and Coop to try their new menu, which by the way is incredible. I actually didn’t manage to take any photos because there was literally a chicken frenzy I did however manage to get a photo of this incredible rum concoction but unfortunately I have no idea what it’s called, something about being golden maybe? It was sweet, and very very strong. Which is all I want in life. What do you want in your life? Tell me, go on. – India Morris
