MediaCityUK is fast becoming a gastronomic hotspot in Manchester. Offering fine dining for special occasions, places to grab a quick bite or somewhere to catch up with colleagues or friends, the area caters to all. There are over 40 eateries to choose from so how are you supposed to decide where to go?! Take a look at Orega’s favourite spots for breakfast, lunch, dinner and after work drinks.

1. Grindsmith

One of the newest additions to the MediaCityUK family, Grindsmith offers delicious meals along with their main passion - amazing coffee. Grindsmith aims to serve the best coffee in Manchester, giving you a top quality caffeine hit to start your day. Their love for all things flavoursome doesn’t stop there though. Their delicious meals are made entirely with local produce, giving you only the best for breakfast and lunchtime. 


2. Pokusevski

Enjoy the cosy feel and home cooking at the small delicatessen, Pokusevski’s in MediaCityUK. With influences from Spain, Eastern Europe, Britain and more they have a love of food that really translates in their dishes. Open for all meal times as well as offering tasty cakes and coffee, the comfortable atmosphere is perfect for a quick bite or long catch up with friends.

3. Hip Hop Chip Shop

Looking to splurge? Check out The Hip Hop Chip Shop for some battered goodness inspired by the inventive and experimental ethos of hip hop culture. Whether you’re looking for classic fish and chips or something different like beer battered gherkins, this boom box food truck has something to tickle everyone’s taste buds. Need catering for your next event? Hire the giant boom box food truck for weddings, birthdays or to liven up your next corporate event. 


4. Penelope’s Kitchen

After living in New York and tasting all the city had to offer, Miss P decided to open up her very own NYC inspired cafe in her hometown of Manchester. Penelope’s Kitchen provides MediaCityUK’s occupants with locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes. Not only can you pop into the cafe for breakfast or lunch, you can also use it for corporate catering or rent their ice cream trike to sweeten up your next event. 

5. The Botanist

It started with a seed, an idea to create a secret garden of food and drink. The Botanist features a large outside terrace with incredible views of Salford Quays and offers delicious favourites from the deli, rotisserie and grill. Visit after work to taste their world-famous selection of botanical cocktails whilst enjoying some live music.
