Manchester rock bar Jimmy’s has launched a new fried chicken bottomless brunch deal and it features the most epic chip butty we’ve seen in some time.
Combining skin-on chips with serrated waffle fries – all piled high inside a soft white bun – it’s absolute carb-fest, served with even more chips on the side and a pot of sauce of your choosing (we went for chip shop curry sauce, and don’t mind telling you it’s up there with the best we’ve ever had).
The perfect stodgy filler-upper for a 90 minute session of non-stop cocktails, beer and spirit mixers, according to Jimmy’s owners this is a proper ‘working men’s’ chip butty – the antithesis of the much-lauded offering at their next door neighbours The Edinburgh Castle.
This mega butty is priced at £5 on its own, but to make the most of it order it as part of the new fried chicken bottomless deal: which gives diners 90 minutes of non-stop drinks and any large dish of their choice for £35.
Served every Saturday between 12-5pm, drinks choices on the bottomless include the likes of Pornstar and espresso martinis, Aperol spritz and Jimmy’s lager, plus cider, pale ale, prosecco, and vodka, gin, whiskey and rum spirit mixers.
Further mains options, meanwhile, include various sandwiches stuffed with buttermilk fried chicken and sauces like hot honey and blue cheese, plus a vegan-friendly ‘magic mushrooms’ version with karaage oyster mushroom, house slaw and Mrs Elwood pickles.
Doubling down on the fried chicken concept, there is also a dish of fried chicken, ice cream and waffles, plus a ‘light bites’ section with ‘chicken nugs’, ‘popcorn shrooms’, buttermilk fried chicken tenders and ‘cauliflower candy’.
All bottomless meals come served with skin-on fries, and if you’ve got room you can also opt to pay extra for a deep-fried chocolate bar pudding.
Almost Famous is giving out FREE burgers to Mancs with a very rare birthday next week
Almost Famous is dishing out free burgers in Manchester next week… but it’s only to the people with the rarest birthday of them all.
Leap Day babies, here’s another one for you.
It’s estimated that only around 4.1 million people worldwide were born on 29 February – which, of course, is also known as a Leap Day birthday – and if you just so happen to be one of those unfortunate, or in this case fortunate, people here in Manchester, then you’ll probably want to get yourself down to Almost Famous next week to celebrate.
That’s because the legendary burger joint is commemorating the special day that only comes around every four years by giving away free burger next Thursday.
The catch, however, is that you have to have been born on 29 February to claim the freebie.
Merely days after Manchester’s popular street food hall and social hub, Society, announced that it would be pouring free pints for Leap Day babies on their birthday, now Almost Famous is getting in on the action too by doing what it does best – serving up some of the heartiest burgers in the whole of the city centre.
Rallying up all Leap Day babies on its official social media platforms this morning, Almost Famous wrote: “Calling all Leap Year babies – get a free burger on 29 February with a valid ID proving it’s your birthday. Sometimes the best things only come round every four years.”
Almost Famous’ burgers are known and loved all across the UK, especially here in Manchester, and now, Leap Day babies who’ve missed out on years of celebrating get to reap the birthday benefits.
So-called ‘leapers’ wanting to bag their bargain burger next Thursday will just need to head on down to one of Almost Famous’ two Manchester city centre restaurants – either the Northern Quarter, or the one inside Great Northern Warehouse – and show the staff a valid form of ID that proves they were, in fact, born on that day.
The deal is expected to run all day, from the moment both Almost Famous sites open right until they close, and, as far as we can tell, the free burger offer is redeemable across the whole menu, so there’s a wide choice to pick from.
But don’t forget, like we’ve already mentioned, it’s just for one day only.
