Restaurant review - Solita

Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Tristan and I are big foodies. We are always searching for new places to eat but so far our most visited place has been Solita. This American style restaurant is located in the Northern Quarter in Manchester and is easily accessible as we live in the city centre. 

Our first time at Solita was in January this year. How can I remember this? I found some photos of our very first Solita experience on my phone - we were sitting downstairs and everything was so... red. Thinking about it now, it almost felt Christmas-y. I had a Krabby Patty burger (with a whole soft-shell crab!) with chips. For dessert I had a Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Brownie with Oreo ice cream.

Tristan's favourite burger is The Schnitz - chicken schnitzel and barbecque chicken (in the picture below he had it with pizza fries).

My favorurite is the KFB - melted Monterey Jack cheese, jalapenos, bourbon BBQ sauce and Kentucky Fried bacon. 

Solita also does specials not on the menu. This one is the Mac Daddy - a deep fried macaroni and cheese bun with beef, bacon and lettuce. I heard that it might be coming back as it was so popular.

There are four options for dessert and all of them come with ice cream. The Solita Ice Cream Donut Sandwich is one of the best desserts on the menu - Cheshire Farm's vanilla ice cream sandwiched between a donut with warm chocolate sauce and dark chocolate pieces on top.

Have any of you been to Solita? What was your favourite burger or dessert? If you've not yet been, I recommend paying them a visit!
