Sure, we’ve always dreamed of not having any washing up to do and just using our food to carry our meal’s components… But not all of us are dreamers. Some of us are doers – including the food geniuses at Bread and Bowl, the team behind this incredibly carby, but Godly creation.
Pimping up fresh, doughy loaves of sourdough, Bread and Bowl does the traditional English breakfast a little differently – ditching the plain white cafe plate and piling it high into a lovely warm loaf.
At a reasonable price for the whole lot, the “bread bowl” is stuffed with bacon, sausages, hash browns, baked beans, cheese, mushrooms, spinach and a fried egg on top sealing all the good stuff, with the ingredients layered-up like a British lasagne – allowing each bite to be as good as the last. It’s not just meat-eaters that get all the fun either, with a stuffed vegan option available and something for the veggies, too.
But the breakfast bread bowl isn’t the only thing that’s piqued our interest. The bread legends have also come up with a number of hearty pasta bowls, too, stuffing the likes of Mac and Cheese, seafood chowder and chicken and pancetta into the scrummy sourdough loaves, oozing in creamy sauces, cheeses that pull for miles and fresh, flavourful meats.
Previously calling the Northern Quarter’s Crown and Anchor home, followed by Mary & Archies on Burton Road, Bread and Bowl can soon be found within the new (and third) Manchester 92 Degrees Coffee branch opening at No.1 Spinningfields, Hardman Square, M3 3EB on September 16. You can also find Bread and Bowl at Brewchimp, 432 Flixton Rd, Urmston, M41 6QT.
