It's hard to believe, but there are still people who've never heard of Solita, (friends of mine), surely it must be the most blogged about restaurant in Manchester? We've usually enjoyed it but perhaps not quite as much as other bloggers seem to.
Here are our notes on this visit.
They sent out some Buttermilk Popcorn Shrimp With Big Manc sauce (£6.90). Mrs Bacon commented that "it's like something you might find in Iceland" (Mum's favourite store). Perhaps this is a little bit harsh, but I know what she means. We still enjoyed them though especially when dipped in the sauce.
here) we probably ordered more 'foodie' type dishes like the DIY Tartare, the chicken livers and the Lucky 7 which we actually preferred, so it was more to do with our choices rather than anything else. Most of these are still on the menu but I'm guessing Solita sensibly stick to what they're good at and to what sells best. It's certainly a hugely popular restaurant, almost every single table was taken and it was still only early doors on Friday evening. We waddled back to the car to drive home and to crash out on our sofa. Massively full as usual. The diet starts on Monday (again).
