In the short history of the El Food Brothers, we’ve had some off the cuff ideas that turn out to be amazing. But we occasionally have an idea that is less than genius. Think ‘The Beatles’ declaring themselves ‘Bigger Than Jesus’.

Yelp! I Need Somebody
Do you know what Yelp is? Neither did I until very recently. Yelp feels like some sort of secret society that no one talks about. With people being given the title of Yelp Elites, and Secret Elite events, it doesn’t help shift the ‘No Homers’ club vibe.
If you can’t beat then, join them. Its with that thought that I end up applying for a place at the ‘The Pizza Off’. Described as a pizza judging event, I’m initially picturing some sort of Homer Simpson at the Chilli Off vibe and dreams of a judges hat with a giant pizza on it fill my head.
All Aboard the Gravy Train
If you’ve seen the El Food Brothers Twitter recently, you’ll have seen that Mash Madness has taken its hold of us.
The quest was set, lets find the best mash in the Northern Quarter. Our first hit of mash is being provided by Pieminister, for two reasons, first, we love a good pun, and secondly, it says ‘Pie & Mash’ in the window.
Super Feature Preview
Following on from the success of the El Food Brothers Food Reviews, we are itching to put some features together. So heres what we came up with of the top of our heads.
We’re definitely going to Tusk
Buoyed by our Twitter interactions with Tusk , and confused by the price of fries at Common we decide its time to hit the Tusk.
Its a sunny day in Manchester and spirits are high, there are lots of hipsters wandering round taking instagrams, so we join in.
Chickens Going Cheap
Cheap eat Monday this week, which is a thing I’ve just made up, is courtesy of Gabbots, in the Arndale centre. Although it says it has a new name, the plastic bag (no charge) it came in says Gabbots, so Gabbots it is.
Theres a Pig on the Ceiling
“Shall we do Tusk, or is it Walrus, are they the same thing? They must be the same thing”
“Whats the place over there with the Pig?”
And so we find our selves in The Blue Pig, offering 50% off selected meals, which on closer inspection, all come from the same magical animal that is the pig.
Return of the Dive
“Is it too early to go back to Dive?”
The answer was no. Its pissing it down in Manchester, and at least we know the way to there. We agree to meet at the back, but neither of us can agree where that is. We eventually meet at the same entrance as yesterday, and nearly drown in a puddle covered by a wooden board.
Not Yard and Coop
With the promise of a Giant Cock burger, the plan is set for a visit to Yard and Coop (aka Chicken Corner)
We head down for 12:30, and watch as a large group of oddly young looking people enter ahead of us. We note this isn’t looking good, but we have cock on the mind, so head on in.
It all starts at Terrace
Day one of the El Food Brothers quest begins at Terrace (@nqterrace)
