Foodie Road Trips Across Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds

We’ve compiled a list of where to go, what to see, and, most importantly, what to eat on a budget.

One of the most exciting aspects of visiting a new location is the ability to sample all of the cuisines available – after all, one of the greatest ways to get to know a new city and culture is to sample all of the local delicacies. Foodie Road Trips are a must for us 20 somethings!

1. Almost Famous

Manchester, Liverpool & Leeds

Almost Famous burgers were created in response to a need for a very juicy, dripping-down-your-arms burger with 100 per cent prime beef, pillowy soft charred buns, melty cheese, and creamy tangy sauces. They combine all of these ingredients to make the burgers they’ve been known for from the beginning.


Cuisine – American

2. The Alchemist

Manchester, Liverpool & Leeds

Unusual, enigmatic, and controversial

They are monsters in the kitchen and masters of the dark arts of molecular mixology. They bedazzle, bewitch, and set the stage for all they do with their mixologists who make every drink with an obsessive eye for detail, delivered in vessels choreographed to add a wicked dose of drama. Enter the magical pharmacy, where the most inventive drinks and delectable all-day meals with a twist are served.

3. Crazy Pedro

Manchester and Liverpool

At Pedro’s, they love to party all the time. Watch the celebration unfold while sipping a frozen margarita and eating a slice of pizza. It’s a really laid-back atmosphere here. No worries if there’s no table service; order your meal at the bar, maybe with an ice cold beer and a shot of Tequila, and they’ll let you know when your pizza is ready.

4. Bundobust

Manchester, Liverpool & Leeds

Indian street food & craft beer

Bundobust is a vegetarian and vegan Gujarati street food restaurant that is open seven days a week. Only Bundobust Brewery’s beer, as well as the best contemporary beer from domestic and international brewers, is available. At any time, walk-ins are welcome. They recommend two to three meals per person, but their variations make Bundobust a great way to share with others. It’s a good idea to share. It all started with a single tweet. In 2013, Mayur Patel reached out to Marko Husak through Twitter and encouraged him to collaborate on a street food event. Mayur’s family owns Prashad, one of the most well-known Indian restaurants in the UK, while Marko runs the Bradford-based Sparrow Bier Café, which specialises in craft beer. After a series of sold-out events and pop-ups, the combination of Gujarati street food and craft beer has proven to be too powerful to ignore. The first Bundobust restaurant debuted in Leeds in 2014, followed by Bundobust Manchester Piccadilly in 2016, Bundobust Liverpool in 2019, and the Bundobust Brewery in 2021. Bundobust has become a symbol of successful casual eating in the North, generally regarded as a game-changing and highly appreciated firm in the independent food and beverage industry.

5. Yard & Coop

Manchester, Liverpool & Leeds

They’ve consumed a lot of chicken throughout the years. They’ve tried a lot of marinades, a lot of sauces, and a lot of crumbs. Then they figured out the key to making their own buttermilk fried chicken. Yard & Coop is all about offering up authentic fried chicken with delicious sides, classic drinks, and craft beers while having a wonderful time. Come drink and eat in the Yard and the Coop.
