Bionic7 only other clothes shop worth a look (apart from TK Maxx Cry ) again not far from Oi Polloi maybe 5 mins.

Didnt even know that Bionic 7 place was there, any website cant find one?

Strange request but anyone had a professional photo done (for business purposes) in the city centre? I’m looking for a place that’s reasonable and doesn’t have me resting my chin on my fist, or any of that nonsense. Something with high resolution shots and a bright white background, thats not a photobooth?

Burritos are burritos. Can’t be arsed with some hype machine and subsequent lining up around the building for one. Besides that Almost Famous burgers is moving to Peter St next to All Star Lanes so will be attracting a completely different clientele.

Some back end Burrito place opens today on Oxford Road, riding the burrito wave. Plus Byron Burgers has just opened on Deansgate. Talk about saturation.

I was a tad pissed but for the money it was standard, wouldn't call it a Mexican it's more frozen non flavour shite but they forgot to charge us for cocktails so was cheap

Almost famous was awful though

I thought burrito place was good and almost famous was great the one and only time I've been. Went to meat Liquor recently and thought Almost Famous was far better.

Does anybody from Manchester remember City Servants? Basically a delivery service place that went to all different restaurants to pick up your order?

Is there anything similar now?

Or a take out place that actually serves decent restaurant quality food?

Anyone got a couple of spares for Despacio on 20th July as part of MIF? Left it late and they are now sold out.
