Halal Food Places in Manchester with Outdoor Seating

Restaurants, bars and other eating establishments were allowed to re-open from 4th July with extra santising measures and social distancing in place to make them Covid-safe. Personally though (at the time of writing this!) I’m not comfortable sitting in an indoor enclosed space with lots of people to eat, so my dining out choices have been places with outdoor seating. For anyone else who’s feeling this way, I’m building a list of places you can eat out – sitting outside and with halal options on the menus! First up – Hatch.

Hatch

Located on Oxford Road as you approach Manchester City Centre from the south, Hatch is an awesome community space with independent traders including food, shops and other services (including a tattoo salon!) run out of shipping containers, with a shared outdoor seating space in the middle, roof terraces and a few small indoor private dining areas.

I visted a few weeks ago and had a great evening with a queue system to get in, hand sanitiser on arrive, limited number of people allowed per table, a QR code to order and pay for your food on your phone, and best of all – FIVE different halal food options!

Fuku Food

I’ve been following Fuku Food on Instagram for ages and pre-lockdown they were on my list to visit, so there was no other choice for me. As you can see from the main pic, I ordered the Hot Loaded Fries and they tasted so good! Expect to find Japanese katsu curry dishes, Korean Fried Chicken, classic salt & pepper dishes and more. Their main non-veg protein ingredient is chicken and this is labelled as Halal, they also have a good choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes too – think tofu, mushroom and cauliflower.

Check out their insta to see more food pics:

Mezze Bar & Kitchen


An offering of Cypriot dishes including hot and cold mezze dishes, burgers and wraps and mediterranean flatbreads. All their meat dishes (including chicken, beef sujuk and lamb) are listed as halal. Veggie options include haloumi and falafel.

Again, check out their Instagram: @Mezzebarandkitchen for more food pics.

Parmogedden

Specialising in “the Teeside delicacy the chicken Parmo” aka fried chicken covered in a variety of cheese and sauces then grilled! You can also get your parmo as a burger!

Their chicken parmos are listed as halal, but some of their seasonal dishes and added extras are not (for example they have a special called “the ham of god” with smoked Pancetta), so worth checking this if you’re visiting. They also have one veggie option – a cauliflower steak parmo.

Kbom Bar / kitchen

KBOM serve up Brazilian and Portuguese streetfood. You’ll find burgers, grilled chicken, seafood dishes and steak.

Golden Nugget

Serving out of their food truck (so may be a temporary feature at Hatch) you can order fried chicken, fish and chips, and mozzarella sticks from this golden van. The chicken here is halal, but worth checking in for any other dishes they may add to their menu in the future.

Have I enticed you to visit Hatch? You can view full menus with prices for all the food places at Hatch via their web ordering service here – Hatch on Goodeats

The other thing I like about Hatch, is the cool music! The Saturday evening I visited, the tunes were very much to my taste, check out my little video below:
