Manchester welcomed its first dedicated grilled cheese outlet recently, as Northern Soul popped up on Church Street’s street market. Its menu includes its signature sandwich The Soul (£4.50), featuring three cheeses, plus onions or marmite, The French (£5.50), with added leek, gruyere and tomato and chilli chutney, and The Hot Chorizo (£6), featuring chorizo, jalapenos and Emmental. Pig on a Lead (£6.50), meanwhile, includes both mac & cheese and seven-hour barbecue pulled pork. All sandwiches are served with dill pickle and coleslaw on the side, with other extras available to purchase. Northern Soul also offers milkshakes – including Killer Vanilla, Hersey’s & Fluff, Peanut Butter and Oreo – at £4, plus soups, tea and coffee options. With substantial lunchtime queues forming since its January launch, Northern Soul could be one of Manchester’s brightest food openings this year.
