Hey everyone! As I’m currently home for the holidays, my siblings and I decided to go and eat at Grand Daddy’s Diner (after my brother had suggested it). None of us had ever been before, however it had come recommended, so we thought we’d check it out. And that, for me, was the perfect opportunity to make a start on the first post of my blog’s “food” section. Hopefully, there’ll be a lot more of these food posts, because let’s face it, we all love food!
Grand Daddy’s Diner is a halal American themed diner in the heart of Manchester, just off Oxford Road (click here to see it on Google Maps). There’s parking available very close by and transport links (such as buses) are also close to the diner.
It opened fairly recently and has just undergone some changes – it’s looking amazing now though! Have a look at the pictures below.
I ordered the Veg Burger with loaded fries (served with cheese) as a side:
I was a little unsure as to what to expect of the burger as I don’t normally go for a veggie burger (I guess I just thought I’d try it). I’m so glad I did try it, though, as I absolutely loved it! Honestly, I never thought a veggie burger could taste so good, but, somehow, it tasted deeeelicious!! I’m definitely going to be ordering it again! The cheesy fries were also nice, however the burger made it, for me.
My brother ordered the New York Classic burger with a side of chunky fries and my sister had a Peri Peri Chicken burger, also with a side of chunky fries:
They also loved their meals, and would both recommend them – I still think mine was better, though.
The meals were extremely filling, however I insisted we get dessert, too. (I mean, if we’re going to try the food, we’re going to have to try all of it!) We all decided we wanted the “Cookie Monster Milkshake” which was, essentially, an Oreo and vanilla ice cream milkshake:
The milkshakes were also a hit, as the three of us loved them – they didn’t beat the main meal though! However, as the burgers were reallyyy filling I didn’t actually manage to finish my milkshake…oops.
Nonetheless, we had a lovely time there; we enjoyed the great food and felt extremely comfortable as the staff were really friendly. So, the next time you’re in Manchester, be sure to give Grand Daddy’s Diner a visit, you’ll get amazing food at extremely reasonable prices – let me know when you do!
