It’s National Fish and Chip Day 2021, so obviously you need to drop whatever it is you’re doing and head out to your local chippy immediately.

Here in Manchester we have an excellent selection of eateries to satisfy your fish and chip cravings, with some even ranking among the best in the entire country.

Here’re some of the best ones for today’s special occasion…

Tony’s Chippy

Tony’s Chippy

With two locations in the Northern Quarter and up by the Etihad Stadium, Tony’s Chippy has been sorting out Mancs (and plenty of City fans) with their iconic battered cod and haddock for years.

It even won the Good Food Award for best fish and chips in 2020 after evaluating customer feedback and exceptional levels of food quality, service and value for money.

Sykes

Sykes is one of the most popular chippies in Salford, with it ranking at the top of a ‘Best Chippies’ poll voted on by MEN readers in 2020 – the beloved Pendlebury fry house even made Britain’s Top 50.

“With thousands of entries Sykes is proud to be named one of the UK’s top 50 fish and chip takeaways,” read a statement on social media.

“This is a prestigious award and the competition was high.”

The Fish at Goose Green

This Wigan chippy offers not only the classic fish and chips, but pies (because Wigan), seafood and chicken, too.

This eatery also made the Britain’s Top 50 list, with owners welcoming the ‘fantastic news’ after a ‘hard year.’

They stated: “We are extremely proud of our staff and are thankful for the continued support from all of our customers. I think there’s only one thing left to say… Who’s up for a Chippy tea?”

Atlantic Fish Bar

Okay, this is arguably the best value for money chippy in the whole of Manchester – their meat pies are priced at an outrageous £1.65, while a portion of their chippy chips will set you back just £2. A small price for a plate of perfection, isn’t it?

All the fish is made to order, so there is minimal soggy batter, too. And, with the venue being open until midnight, it makes the perfect post-pint order on your walk/stagger home.

Wright’s

Traditional fish and chips done right (no pun intended).

Located conveniently in the city centre, Wright’s really has it all and is dangerously close to office blocks to tempt all you 9-5’ers into a chippy tea as a reward for a long week’s graft.

Their menu is varied, with everything from perfectly battered cod, fish cakes, scampi and even fish fingers.

Chips @ No.8

This Prestwich chippy was initially made famous for having a 20ft mural of The Fall frontman Mark E. Smith painted on the side of its building – but, putting arty exterior aside, their staple fish and chips is the true reason for their popularity.

This chippy was another Manc icon to make the Britain’s Top 50 list, with the owners stating in a Facebook post: “There are more than 10,500 fish and chip shops in the UK and our little chippy down a side street in P-Town has been listed in the Top 50!!!

“This is a prestigious list and we’re incredibly proud to have made it.”

Anchors Fish & Chips

Once called Fosters, this Didsbury icon was once noted by the Times to be in the top 30 fish & chip shops in the whole country, so it would be sacrilege to leave them off this list.

Now called Anchors, they have everything you need to either take away or enjoy in house, which is actually quite pleasurable in comparison the usual plastic seats and tables.

Manchester restaurant serving ‘world’s hottest curry’ to anyone brave enough

It has been described as ‘like eating molten lava!’

Zouk

A Manchester eatery is daring customers to try its extremely hot curry for National Chilli Day.

This February 22nd, Zouk is creating the World’s Hottest Curry as part of the restaurant’s celebration of National Chilli Day – where courageous participants will have to eat a whole portion of it within the allocated time frame to win a prize.

The dish will feature the World’s Hottest Chilli (according to the Guinness Book of Records), the star of the show, The Carolina Reaper.

The Carolina Reaper Karahi curry – available in chicken (£15.95) and vegetable (£14.95) options – will be available Monday, February 19th to Friday 23rd as a special.

Zouk

Zouk has also created the world’s hottest kebab, the Reaper Seekh Kebab (£7.95), also made with Carolina Reaper Chillies, mixed lamb and chicken keema. 

The restaurant is offering prizes for those bold enough to take these fiery dishes on.

On National Chilli Day (February 22nd), Zouk is challenging the most daredevil customers to take on the Reaper Curry or Reaper Seekh Kebab, where if they manage to complete the task they can win prizes to be enjoyed at the restaurant at a later date.

As a menu special, there is also a devilishly good Chilli Margarita drink for guests to enjoy – although this is made with milder fresh chillies.

Zouk

The prizes for those customers with a ‘strong stomach and mind’ are:

  • Finish the full Carolina Reaper Seekh Kebab in one sitting (maximum eating time is 30 minutes and no help from companions) and you will get your kebab on Zouk, plus a £10 gift card to enjoy at the restaurant to redeem against food or drinks at a later date. 
  • Finish the full Carolina Reaper Curry (either chicken or vegetable) in one sitting (maximum eating time is 30 minutes and no help from companions) then you will not only get your Reaper Curry on Zouk, but you will also win a Brunch for two at the restaurant at a later date. 
  • Finish both the full Carolina Reaper Seekh Kebab and the Carolina Reaper Curry in one sitting (maximum eating time is one hour and no help from companions) and you will get your kebab and curry on the restaurant, as well as winning a Zouk Sunday Roast Meal for two.
Zouk

Knowing the Reaper is officially the world’s hottest chilli, it may not surprise you to learn from the chefs that even cooking this curry is a bit of a challenge. 

Owner Tayub Amjad commented: “The chillies are so hot that the chefs must be careful when handling them. You can feel them on your hands and stinging your eyes. The heat really is intense. 

“We’ve also made a vegetable karahi suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Last year we made a kebab but this year we’ve upped the stakes and made a seekh kebab reaper dish, we believe it is the world’s hottest kebab. 

“Last year only about 15 people completed the challenge and beat the reaper so I can’t wait to see who takes on this trio of Reaper dishes in 2024.”

Zouk

Anybody who finishes one of these challenges will also get a Zouk Ice Cream Sundae to help cool off those scorched taste buds! 

Zouk believes this to be the World’s Hottest Curry, so if you fancy putting it and yourself to the test, make a booking now and embrace National Chilli Day’s Biggest Challenge.

Zouk’s World’s Hottest Curry Challenge takes place at Zouk Tea Bar & Grill, The Quadrangle, Chester Street, Manchester on Thursday February 22nd.

Manchester's Finest Group

A mile-long Margarita bar crawl is returning to Manchester with a host of venues set to take part to celebrate the drink’s national day.

Honouring National Margarita Day on February 22nd, the celebratory bar crawl will feature El Tequileño tequila in a variety of cocktails at venues across the city.

Known as ‘Mexico’s best kept secret’, El Tequileño is produced in the heart of the old town of Tequila and stays true to its authentic roots.

Manchester’s Finest Group

The brand will collaborate with Maldon Salt – because what’s a Margarita without the perfect dusting of premium salt around the rim of your glass? – to deliver the event at bars including Stray Bar, Madre, New Century, Fierce and Smithfield Social.

Whatever your Marg preference – classic tequila and lime, frozen or spicy – there will be plenty of signature mixes to sip on between February 19th and 25th.

Stray will showcase distinguished blends like their Tomato Vine Margarita, Madre will be serving up flights of the good stuff, while Fierce are mixing it up with beer to make the Cervezarita.

Manchester’s Finest Group

In a nice touch, ALL participating bars will be discounting Margaritas to £6 on Margarita Day (February 22nd) itself.

Many of the venues taking part are also adding margherita pizzas to the mix, so you can grab a slice to accompany your tipple.

Tequila fans and connoisseurs can learn about the origins of their favourite drink and how it is made from very special guest Tony Salles – the grandson of El Tequileño creator Don Jorge Salles Cuervo.

Tony will meet those on the mile at The Daisy to chat about all things tequila on National Margarita Day.

Taking inspiration from Manchester’s Margarita Mile last year, London and Leeds cities will also be hosting their own first Margarita Mile in February 2024, also in conjunction with El Tequileño, Maldon Salt and Tabasco.

The Margarita-Mile bar crawl takes place from February 19th – 25th at the above participating venues.

*Please remember to drink responsibly.

Individual Restaurants brings Club IR – the new highly anticipated loyalty scheme offering customers an unforgettable experience and real rewards.

The move comes after customer insight from Individual Restaurants revealed that 60% of people don’t value points as part of a loyalty programme.

Individual Restaurants says the new programme, which launched on January 4th, elevates what diners can expect from a loyalty card, ditching the tired ‘points’ system and instead focusing on giving guests what they really want; personalised offers, exceptional service and money-can’t-buy experiences.

With personalisation at the heart of Club IR, members on each of the three tiers; ‘Club’, ‘Black’ and ‘Diamond’, can expect the ultimate tailored experience.

More than a loyalty scheme, Club IR has been curated based on valuable customer insight that shows more than half of customers prefer a variety of offers and discounts, as well as surprise rewards (92%) and a tiered system of loyalty (85%).

Individual Restaurants

The Individual Restaurants collection includes Restaurant Bar & Grill, Piccolino, Riva Blu and Piccolo by Piccolino, totalling 31 restaurants across the UK. 

As part of the new programme, members will be the first to know about news and events, and will be privy to a variety of specially curated in-restaurant perks.

With an amazing new app, Club IR could not be easier to access, allowing guests to see exclusive rewards and experiences available in real time and book tables.

Individual Restaurants

Individual Restaurants has designed the programme so all guests are welcome from the moment they join the club, with benefits starting from sign up.

Andrew Garton, CEO of Individual Restaurant Group, said: “We know from our members that it’s not points that they value. 

“Instead our guests value personalised service, incredible food and friendly hospitality – something that we pride ourselves on at Individual Restaurants.

“With our new loyalty scheme, we’ve taken what was an extremely popular programme already and listened to guests to make it even better – with more personalised offers, luxury experiences and tailored event invitations.
