My 10 Favourite Dishes in Manchester.

This post was inspired by the former food blogger @FTTBYD over on twitter and originally from an article on London’s Best Dishes that you can read here.
This list is a personal list of some of my favourite dishes in Manchester. It's not necessarily the 'best' food, just those that I can recall enjoying immensely at the time.
I tried to put them in numerical order, but it just proved to be too difficult!
I was going to choose the Ox in coal oil at The French.  But my favourite dish of that amazing night was the Yew Tree Farm Herdwick hogget. The best tasting lamb.

Makhan Chara: The Great Kathmandu.
The ultimate comfort food for me, smoky, creamy and gorgeous.
Bread & Dripping: Aumbry. 
There have been a few imitators, but this is still the best. Sunday dinner in golden liquid form.
Mac & Cheese: All Star Lanes. Homely, comforting and absolutely delicious. Loved the additional truffle oil!
Pumpkin Risotto with blacksticks blue cheese :Damson Media City. I adore really intense flavours, so the strong blue cheese was a real winner for me.
Street Tacos: Luck, Lust, Liquor & Burn. Embarrassingly, I exclaimed 'mmmmmm' out loud.
Gaeng Panang from Thai Spice. Perhaps a surprising choice, but it's just that sauce, it's devine!
Pearl Barley Kedgeree from The Beagle. A perfect starter.
Pork two ways from The Chorlton Green Brasserie.  Love the crackling!
Vanilla & Greek Yogurt Panna cotta from Linen.
Pudding is normally an after thought for me. But I though I should include one, and this is the one I chose.

Compiling this list, I tried to be as honest as I could with myself. It surprised me how many comforting dishes there were in there. Maybe on a different day, there would some others included. What are yours?
