Salt & Pepper Manchester has announced it is to permanently take over the kitchen at Black Dog NQ from Monday.

Launched by “Chinese kids born and bred in Manchester”, Salt & Pepper is undoubtedly a firm-favourite on the Manchester foodie scene, but after two successful years of being a staple at the Arndale Food Market, it’s time for pastures new.

The beloved Chinese-inspired street food stall has announced via social media this afternoon that it will be moving to the Northern Quarter’s Black Dog Ballroom from Monday.

The exciting move coincides with ‘Step Three’ in the government’s roadmap to lifting England’s national lockdown, which allows hospitality to reopen indoors after four weeks of outdoor service only.

In a post to Instagram, Salt & Pepper said: “It’s our 2nd birthday and we have BIG BIG news. From Monday 17th May, we will be taking over the kitchen Black Dog NQ PERMANENTLY, so you’re gonna be able to get your Salt & Pepper fix in the evenings, with beer, and cocktails, and pool”.


For those still keen to grab their Salt & Pepper fix for lunch though, the eatery made sure to confirm that the Arndale market stall continue to run as usual.

If the permanent move to Black Dog NQ wasn’t exciting enough as it is, Salt & Pepper has also announced an unmissable competition on Instagram as a thank you to “all our amazing customers from the whirlwind of the last two years”.


Five lucky people can win £22 off their food orders when they visit Black Dog.

The winners will be announced ahead of the grand opening on 17th May, and will be informed via DM, so if you fancy being in with a chance of winning, head on over to Salt & Pepper Manchester on Instagram to find details on how to answer.
