Tucked down a side street in Manchester’s Gay Village is a little-known Lebanese grill. It’s well worth seeking out.
Recently renovated and revamped, inside Jasmine Grill you’ll find stylish interiors with deep booths, exposed brick walls and a sleek marble-topped bar.
But while it might look swanky, rest assured that what will seriously impress here is the food.
For fans of traditional casseroles, you can’t go wrong with dishes like the house fatteh (lamb, aubergine, tomato and pomegranate casserole topped with white sauce and crispy flatbread squares), or the bamieh – a rich tomato and okra dish that can be bulked up with the addition of lamb if so desired.
Whilst on the kebab front, the grill really does shine with the likes of chicken, kofta, shish and cheesy chicken all on offer – all done in the traditional Lebanese style.
Thanks to head chef Alex’s secret fruit marinade, these meaty morsels are absolutely delicious, and far more tender than anything we’ve ever had the pleasure to try before.
On top of all this, the restaurant also dabbles in the American side of things with a range of spiced burgers. Using the same spices as used on the Lebanese grill dishes, they’re wildly flavoursome and moreish.
Sound up your street? Well this month the restaurant has just announced it will be running a special discount for diners between Monday and Thursday from now until 13th February, which means you can get 20% off your food bill.
