Manchester’s already impressive kebab scene is set to be joined by a new döner restaurant and, guess what?

They’ll be giving out free kebabs to celebrate their arrival.

Döner Shack, which has enjoyed tremendous success in its flagship venue in Leeds Trinity Kitchen, will be taking over a venue in the Arndale’s Halle Place later this month.

The restaurant has become popular for it’s authentic Berlin-inspired kebaps, which all contain twice the amount of lean meat you’d find in your standard kebab from the local takeaway. There’s also no artificial fillers or excessive oils; just good quality meat and ingredients to make the perfect kebap.

Alongside Döner, Chicken Shawarma and freshly baked artisan bread, there will also be currywurst, halloumi, falafel and vegan schnitzel on the menu, all of which will be priced between £6 and £9.

On the drinks front, there will be a selection of milkshakes, soft drinks and German beers on tap – because it wouldn’t be a proper kebab experience without an abundance of German booze, would it?

The co-founder and managing director of Döner Shack Sanjeev Sanghera, said on the Manchester venue: “We can’t wait to introduce the people of Manchester to an authentic taste of the Berlin döner kebap filled with quality meats, fresh salad and our delicious signature sauces.

“We feel incredibly excited to be opening in Manchester Arndale, and understand, now more than ever, that people don’t want to compromise when it comes to quality, taste and their dining experience.”

He added that his mission is to change people’s perceptions of the kebab and show that it doesn’t need to be exclusive to those drunken walks home.

He said: “Whether that’s a snack while shopping, a quick grab and go during a busy lunch break or a fun evening with a group of friends. It’s time for a new generation of street food and we’re thrilled to be leading the way”.

And to celebrate their restaurant opening on Monday November 25th, Döner Shack will be giving out free kebabs between 11am-3pm for anyone who wants one. Get it in your dairies.

NEW OPENING: A dedicated chicken wing restaurant has launched in Manchester

There’s a new chicken wing spot in town…

Manchester's Finest Group

Manchester’s favourite urban village Hatch has gained an exciting new addition in the form of chicken wing restaurant Wing Dash.

Wing Dash comes courtesy of takeaway kings Burgerism, whose popularity skyrocketed during the 2020 lockdowns.

Operating from their dark kitchen in Salford, Burgerism became well known and loved for their (you guessed it) burgers, which have even been named as ‘the best burgers in Manchester’ by Mana’s Michelin-starred Head Chef, Simon Martin.

So, of course, we can expect some seriously good things from their latest venture, which takes a primary focus on the humble chicken wing.

Their latest venture sees their iconic Burgerism formula in the form of chicken wings with six options up for grabs; each wing, made from 100% British chicken, is brined for twenty-four-hours to ensure maximum flavour and tenderness.

They’re then coated in the special Burgerism signature coating and deep-fried, before being seasoned with one of six unique flavours including Piri-Piri, Buffalo, Atomic, BBQGarlic Parm and Lemon Pepper.

And for those wanting a meat-free alternative (or, like me, for those who just really love a bit of cauliflower), Wing Dash are also serving up their delicious Cauliflower Bites, which are sourced from a family-run farm in Preston available to order in any of the six seasonings. 

Of course, there are also fries to be ordered alongside your wing haul, which are prepped fresh every day and topped with a generous sprinkle of chicken salt. 

Wing Dash is open now at Hatch, but can also be ordered for delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Head over to the Wing Dash Instagram page for news and updates.

Aldi

Some fantastic winter news for you all to sink your teeth into: Aldi has brought back its iconic hot chocolate Christmas mug melts.

In what could be the best timing ever (because it’s now bloody freezing out there), the budget supermarket is now selling the tasty mug melts with two very cute new characters. 

This years mug melts feature the familiar snowman design from last year, and the new penguin and unicorn designs, with each hot chocolate melt being available in stores now for just £1.25 a pop. 

Aldi

All you need to do is sit the melts in your mug, add steaming hot milk and watch them dissolve into a wonderfully thick and creamy hot chocolate – perfect for the many freezing evenings we’re all set to endure over the next few months.

The mug melts also come in 100% plastic-free packaging – what’s not to love?! To get your hands on some, you can either visit your local Aldi or visit the Aldi website

Though this isn’t the only thing Aldi are doing this Christmas – earlier this month, the supermarket launched their annual Christmas advert where they revealed they’d partnered up with Man United star Marcus Rashford to donate 1.8 million meals to families over the festive period. 

This years advert, which has taken inspiration from Charles Dickens’ festive classic A Christmas Carol, centres around new character, Ebanana Scrooge, who holds a passionate dislike for Christmas after being rejected by Santa for a mince pie as a baby banana.

Aldi

Old favourite Kevin the Carrot also returns as the Ghost of Christmas Past and, in a first, Rashford makes a brief cameo as the footballer radish, Marcus Radishford.

Rashford said of his partnership in a statement: “As a family, we relied on the local food bank to get our Christmas dinner. To this day, I remember queuing outside that building with mum, mum feeling embarrassed that she might be recognised. It is with that in mind that I’m delighted to lend my support to the Aldi campaign.

“For many children in situations like mine growing up, there is very little expectation around this time of year; add the impact of the pandemic and the very least they deserve is a Christmas dinner.”
