Gatley in Stockport is becoming something of a hot-spot for exciting food, and Bhaji Pala is one of its shining lights. This is Manchester’s first entirely vegan restaurant, but – yes, we know it’s a cliche to say – you wouldn’t know it. This is modern flavour-packed vegan food that even your most stubborn relative could enjoy. And yes, every edible product in the venue is vegan, including all the drinks.
All the classics are there, from makhani curries to samosas and puris, all absolutely delicious, and, dare we sat, much much better than the carnivorous equivalent. If you were musing about trying this whole vegan thing, then make Bhaji Pala your very first stop to realise just how fantastic it can be.
