Brand new bagels, Indian fine dining and, go on then, more ginormous pizza
We've loved seeing all the pictures of people's mams all over social media this week. It's been a beautiful counterpoint to all of the horrible news.
But this column is more buns than mums. Your weekly dose of deliciousness.
Scroll on for our new weekly round-up of full-fat social media content from Manchester's food and drink scene.
Nelly the elephant (sized pizza)
We're just really easily impressed by massive slices of pizza, ok?
Cheese porn: The runny shot
Northern Soul's cheese toasties may not be as enormous as their homeslices', er, slices over at Common but what they don't know about the cheese pull isn't worth knowing, mate. This mac classic has us moz-merised.
But we also like fancy-schmancy and this amuse-bouche from Gupshup in Hale made us do an impressed face.
Staying with the spicy, there's just something really lovely about this display of hot sauce and banana ketchup from the brilliant Mama Z.
More pretty patterns with these photogenic lemon meringue pies from Trove in Ancoats.
The best doughnuts on the planet?
Who do we have in store today!?
Mattia and his awesome tiramisus!
Including classic, vegan biscoff and pistachio!
As well as our weekly drop of @planet_doughnut 🍩#ancoats pic.twitter.com/LMw3b5Cf0j

Ancoats General Store really knows how to pick its independent suppliers. How good do these from Planet Doughnut look?
