Luckily for me, SoLita opened in the Northern Quarter last week and after reading 'deep fried..' on the menu, I knew I had to go.
Boy, am I glad I did.
The name is an acronym for South of Little Italy and the restaurant cooks it's food in an authentic oven; heated by coal.
A chic little place on the outskirts of the NQ; it's dark, cosy and perfect to huddle in with your girls or a date.
The girls and I were tweeting our excitement and the owner offered us a glass of Prosecco on the house.
If you do nothing else in Manchester, visit this gem of a place to sample their deep friend Coco Cola.
Certainly a guilty pleasure, SoLita is one for a cheat day.
Sweet tooths and foodies get yourselves here, the mash is to die for.
Take a look here.
