Tucked away amongst the market stalls on Church Street in the centre of Manchester you will find the most amazing food stall. As you walk towards the stall you should be able to hear the wonderful music coming from the stall. As its name suggests Northern Soul is one of the main ingredients here, although they do stretch the genre to include Motown (not that I’m complaining, I’m just being an anorak and pointing it out!).
The second and perhaps most important ingredient here is Grilled Cheese, something which they certainly know how to serve. The chalkboard menu above the counter details their daily specials along with the everyday offerings. These include a Pig On A Lead – which is mac and cheese with pulled pork and The French – served with Leek and Gruyere cheese, together with a tomato and chilli chutney.
I opted for the Swiss and Ham – Applewood Smoked Ham and Cheese and loved it. This is a perfect stop for a lunch, either on the go or you can choose to sit at the small number of spots inside the stall.
They also serve milk shakes including Oreo and a local favourite Vimto. I did not try these, but they looked amazing.
