Acclaimed street food vendor Viet Shack has launched a second full-time outlet at Koh Tao bar in Fallowfield. You may know of Viet Shack from the Arndale Centre’s food market, and it has also recently been a staple of local street food events, appearing at both Friday Food Fight and Up in Your Grill. The new venue Koh Tao is a self-styled dive bar with a Thai-beach theme, which opened in September. The ‘Shack’s menu seemingly has the local student population in mind, as it’s split into two sections: ‘When you’re broke’ and ‘When you’re rich’. Specialities include King Prawn Summer Rolls and Chicken ‘n’ Mango Salad (broke), alongside Lemongrass Chicken Burger and Spicy Tomato Pulled Pork Stew (rich).

Now open, Koh Tao Bar, 310 Wilmslow Road, Fallowfield, M16 6XQ, 12pm – 9pm daily,
