Not sure what South African food is all about?
Chakalaka in the Northern Quarter is the place to find out.
This vibrant, new casual dining spot on Oldham Street is Manchester’s only South African bar and kitchen. Serving everything from street food to classic dishes to sweet treats, it gives you a real insight into what makes South African food special. And it’s all cooked fresh on site by their chefs.
Food-wise, try the classic cured meat snack, biltong — it’s made here in Manchester by a South African butcher. Or how about a bunny chow — it’s a curry stuffed into a hollowed-out bread loaf — and shows the influence of the Indian population in South Africa. Then there’s the bobotie — it’s a beef, apricot and mango dish with a creamy topping — they compare it to a sweet version of cottage pie.
And to drink... South Africans love beer almost as much as we do in Britain. Try their best-selling Castle Beer or the only South African craft beer on draft in Manchester, the beautiful IPA from Cape Brewing Co. They’ve also got top-notch cocktails, South African soft drinks and South African wines.
