After having to permanently close its stall at Arndale Market in April this year, Salt & Pepper have finally found a new permanent home in the Northern Quarter. The popular food stall run by sibling owners Chloe & Cash, which was serving delicious food at Black Dog Ballroom during the summer months, has announced it will be opening a venue just a stone’s throw away from their former residence this November.
Salt & Pepper submitted a licensing application in August to open their very own restaurant on High Street in the Northern Quarter, next door to the English Lounge pub and practically opposite Arndale Market. And from November 25, Mancs will be able to enjoy traditional Chinese takeaway dishes with a modern twist like sweet sticky soy drizzled on grilled steak and salt and pepper wings all under one permanent roof.
The team have kept all their classic dishes you know and love but have also added new stuffed wraps section as well as grilled options instead of fried for healthier alternatives. Customers will be able to quickly pop in on their lunch break to grab some tasty Chinese dishes or sit down to tuck into their signature salt and pepper flavoured dishes.
Adding to the excitement, the team is also launching a new hot curry sauce on top of their nine sauces. The curry sauce is a family recipe that’s been in the family since their grandad first opened a Chinese takeaway back in the 60s- and if it’s anything like their sauces we know and love, this one is sure to bang.
Salt & Pepper will be open from 11:30am until 8.30pm, Sunday to Thursday, and 11.30am until 9.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, meaning we can scran a flavoursome dish a little later into the night. Plus, the food stall has applied for an alcohol license allowing customers to be able to sip on some cold beers alongside their salt and pepper chicken and chips- something which wasn’t possible at Arndale Market.
In the summer, Salt & Pepper brought back their much-loved share boxes filled with sticky chicken; salt & pepper chicken; sticky beef; salt & pepper prawns; wings; fries or rice; and four sauces for dipping and drizzling, so here’s hoping it returns.
