Our round-up of the top deals in Manchester for May includes reliably good ramen from Shoryu, free tapas of a Friday evening, and a classic unlimited wine offer. There’s even free burgers from Common’s new menu to dig into.

£15 ramen and a bun at Shoryu Ramen
Every lunchtime at Piccadilly Garden’s ramen joint, you can get a ramen and a bun for just £15.

Tomahawk Tuesday at Wood Manchester
One of Manchester’s finer dining restaurants has some equally fine offers for those looking to get some extra food for your cash. Tomahawk Tuesday is their meat heavy offering where two of you can get a Tomahawk steak to share with two sides and peppercorn sauce for £25 each. The high quality slab of meat is more than enough at £50 for two. If cheese is more your thing the Wood cheese board is on offer every day with a glass of wine for £25 – perfect for a nibble and a catch up.

Buy One Get One Free on burgers at Common
You won’t find a better price for a burger than free, and if you missed out on Common’s century of burgers giveaway then you can still wangle yourself a freebie from the Edge Street bar. Every Tuesday Common offer a Buy One Get One Free on their entire burger menu. So, yes, you may have to spend a little bit of cash, but much less than usual and you can try their brand new menu including the Beyond Meat veggie burger that has to be tasted to be believed.

Elnecot – 30% off on Monday for total bill
Some money off deals are more equal than others and Elnecot’s is certainly aiming to be amongst the best. Not content with money off food, their 30% off deal on a Monday is for the entire bill so get your food AND your drink at nearly ⅓ off all night and don’t worry about settling in for that second or third bottle.

Steak For Two for less at El Capo
If you’ve spent the weekend eating clean, or only drinking, then El Capo will fill you up with an Argentinian sharing steak for two, two sides and a bottle of wine for just £25 for two people every Monday. That’s £12.50 each for enough meat and wine to keep anyone going through the rest of the week.
