A colleague with offices on Mosely Street suggested a quick bite to eat in China Town so we took "pot luck" and chose the New Hong Kong at random. It had been a favourite in my student days, but had not visited in more years than I care to mention! I wish I hadn't stayed away so long!
OK, so the atmosphere isn't exactly electric and the decor is tired at best, but the food more than makes up for these shortcomings.
We opted for Dim Sum and were delighted to see that, during the week, these are half price.
The Su Mai were delicious, the Beef & Ginger dumplings a joy and the pork buns soft with the requesit gooey filling.
We finished off with the little custard tarts.
All of this, with tea thrown in cost just over £12. You'd be hard-pushed to get coffee & a sandwich for two in the cty centre for that price.
The service was good - nothing special, but then when you're just pooping in for an hour, what you want most is quick attentive staff and they were certainly that.
Would I make the trip into town for a meal in the evening? Probably not, it's not that special. But if you find yourself in that part of town, its definitely worth a visit - I'll certainly be back next time I'm in Manchester.
