SoLita is one of the best places to get a bite to eat when in Manchester as I pointed out in my "Birthday Blog" last year. If I lived in the city I would no doubt eat in their Northern Quarter restaurant at least once a week.
However, I live in Bolton and given the severe lack of trains running between my village and the city this summer, I don't get into Manchester as much as I would like.
Luckily for me, SoLita have just opened up in Prestwich which is much easier to get to and will no doubt mean more trips to their fine establishment.
This week my friend Jono and I had the pleasure to visit the new location - it lived up to the hype and then some.
Once In A Lifetime:
2 x 6 ounce minced steak patties, pulled pork, crispy bacon, shoestring onions, buttermilk chicken strips, Monterey Jack cheese, house BBQ sauce and sweet potato fries.
I ordered this and have been looking forward to trying it for a year. It was unbelievably good, especially the buttermilk chicken. It's the biggest burger I've ever seen jammed packed with ingredients!
Nom nom nom!
The Big Manc:
2 x 6 ounce minced chuck steak patties, trifecta brioche, iceberg, home pickles, Monterey Jack cheese and Big Manc sauce.
Jono went for SoLita's famous Big Manc and said it was utterly incredible. This burger is firmly in my sights when I next visit!
Creamy and sweet. Lovely.
Yes, you read that right. 3 bloody brilliant rings of onion wrapped in glorious bacon.
Kill me now, I've found heaven.
I was hugely impressed with the new SoLita in Prestwich. Not only was the food outstanding but the way they have done up the place is spot on. For me, a lot more convenient in terms of location and a lot bigger than the central Manchester restaurant.
Here's hoping their next move is into Bolton...
