The Ultimate Guide to Discount Dining in Manchester!

Posted by Laura Springer on Feb 15, 2019 11:34:23 AM

According to the dreamy Fred Sirieix (the French guy from First Dates), Manchester is the food hub of the North West. With more restaurants, food markets and food festivals than ever before, it's not all that surprising that budding restaurateurs choose Manchester as their home. The food scene is incredibly varied from the independent eateries and coffee shops of the Northern Quarter, fine dining restaurants of Deansgate and the well loved chain restaurants of the Corn Exchange, there's a lot on offer here. I honestly believe it would take years to eat your way through all the restaurants here (I have lived here for five years, believe me, I've tried!)

Alma de Cuba

Posted by The Greedy Cow on Oct 16, 2018 12:07:38 PM

So what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than in a church converted into a restaurant, enjoying a Sunday Lunch whilst listening to live Gospel music… Well that is exactly what you can do at Alma de Cuba’s ever popular Gospel Sunday Brunch, each Sunday between 1-6pm.

The Gospel Sunday Brunch has been part of Alma de Cuba’s weekly ‘What’s On’ for many years now and still hasn’t lost its charm. We arrived on a cold autumn day to be warmed not only by the food & drink but by the atmosphere too. The bar was quiet when we arrived and we made our way upstairs to the restaurant. Welcomed by oversized chandeliers and burning candles, Alma does Hygge without even trying to, which is perfect as the days shorten and nights get longer.

Although it was a school night, we opted for the Pinot Grigio from Chile. A wine from Chile is always my fall back and best tip for anyone who isn’t a connoisseur of wine lists. As the wine was poured the Gospel singers began. Expect soulful classics like ‘I’ll be There’ and R-Kelly’s ‘I believe I can fly’ mixed in with Gospel Choir and songs straight out of Sister Act. The band position themselves right on the old Church alter which is perfect for those Instagram pics.

We passed on starters and went straight for the Beef Sunday Roast. Now Alma de Cuba don’t just do Sunday Roasts, they do one of the best Sunday Roasts in the city. Oversized Yorkshire pud, thick slices of beef with all the trimmings and a delicious red wine gravy. Although the food was delicious, we both struggled to finish our plates. Not a bad thing at all!

After a good break between courses to let our lunch settle, we opted for the Chocolate Brownie with a kick of chilli. I’m not a big fan of spice, especially in my dessert, but it worked! The brownie was flaky and soft, topped with ice cream and presented perfectly with drizzles of caramel. Be warned though it does have a kick to it!

The whole afternoon was wrapped up perfectly whilst the Gospel band finished on ‘Oh Happy Day’. What an absolute classic to sum up how we were feeling after a great afternoon at Alma de Cuba. With winter around the corner, Sunday Brunch at Alma is definitely your perfect winter warmer!
