Self described as Manchester’s hidden gem, This & That is a genuine lunchtime institution. Best known for its popular “Rice n Three” menu this basic canteen, crammed with formica tables, serves rice and three curries for under £6 with free tap water, fresh chillis, limes and chopped coriander on the side. Spicy veg or meat samosas are extra. Standards include potato and cauliflower curry, fresh, aromatic dhal and sumptuous lamb dishes filled with fall-apart flavoursome hunks of meat. Do not expect any trimmings, either food or décor wise. Instead, drop in and lose yourself in a buzzing lunch spot that’s never less than packed. Early arrival from noon is recommended for maximum choice as it’s hard to get a seat after 12.30pm.
