The North Proves Its Superiority Again With The Introduction Of A Gravy Bar

I'm not saying the North is better than the South in every respect. For example, the South has the Warner Bros. Studio Tour so... yeah. You can have that.

However, the North does know how to make a proper gravy. And we put it on everything - no-one likes a dry chip.


Now, a new bar dedicated entirely to gravy is reportedly coming to Manchester's Northern Quarter. Where else?!

Okay so you'd be forgiven for thinking that there'd be beer pumps with a variety of different kinds of gravy coming out, maybe a few Man U top-wearing LADs shotting chicken Bisto in the corner and gravy cocktails with chicken legs sticking out the top - but it's actually more of a restaurant.

Yup, no gravy drinks to be seen. Damn.

However, there is quite a nice selection of food. And you choose your gravy before anything else which is pretty cool.

Hot chilli gravy sounds absolutely fucking delicious.

If you're struggling to read the menu, you can check it out on their website here.

The bar has been relatively quiet apart from their Twitter account where they've only just dropped this menu.

The website states: "Gravy Bar is a deluxe cuisinery in Manchester's Northern Quarter, launching in April 2017.

"It's the first of its kind and our own true homage to the finest part of the Sunday roast: Gravy."

They've catered to all the hipster-types with their vegetarian and vegan options, so that's nice.

Who fancies going when it opens? I'll be the one stood outside with a knife and fork at the ready.

Weirdest Restaurant Concepts

Modern Toilet

This is a restaurant which is, weirdly, toilet themed. It opened in Taiwan in 2004 and was so unbelivably successful that the owner opened up 12 different locations in Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, and Japan.

You sit on toilets and eat out of them... I wish I was messing.

Plus, you drinks are served in urinal-shaped glasses. Excuse me while I go do a sick.

Heart Attack Grill

This restaurant features a 20,000 calorie burger - I shit you not.

If you weigh more than 350lbs, you eat for free. Yes, that's 25 stone. It's based in Las Vegas and has proved a huge hit.

You're served by staff wearing nurses outfits and you have to wear hospital gowns.

The gravy bar's looking pretty normal now though, right?
