Low-fat, high-flavour options are go at WOLF
NEW year, new you, but feel as if those healthy-eating resolutions are cramping your style? Well, fear not as we have a cracking idea – let us point you in the unlikely direction of The Manchester Arndale and its recently revamped food mall, Hallé Place.

Breakfast, brunch, lunch… goodness is go at WOLF, where the Italian-style street food specialists are serving up some finger-licking, lip-smacking, vitamin-packing picks. Health kicking? Then kick-start the day with yoghurt, fruit and muesli and a fresh juice on the side. We’re also particularly partial to the WOLF omelettes, inspired by frittatas from Italy.
Made to order before your very eyes using only the freshest free range eggs, you get to choose what’s added to the mix: meats, cheese or vegetables, or a combination of them all. How about bruschetta tomato, full of vitamin C, spinach for a handful of healthful leafy greens, and chopped mushrooms, giving you plenty of minerals like zinc, copper, potassium, magnesium and folate?
Sticking with those low-calorie eggs, and the WOLF pots deliver hard-boiled free-rangers teamed with a choice of smoked salmon or spinach. Poached or scrambled are also on the menu: opt for a vegetarian three-way of ripe avocado, mozzarella and mushroom, or match up with smoked salmon and smashed avocado, for added good oils.
Prepared by hand in front of you, you can see what’s going into your food – from energy-packed pasta with veggie pesto or Mediterranean veg and lower-fat feta, to salads with seasonal leaves, Tuscan beans, sundried tomatoes, roasted peppers, courgettes and red onion. WOLF’s “hero dish”, the piada, is perfect for this: a burrito-style flatbread, it has various choices of nutritious fillings bursting with Italian flavours thanks to a 24-hour marinading process. What’s more, the lemon chicken, marinated salmon and chargrilled steak are all of British origin.
