A couple of weeks ago we headed down Oxford Road in Manchester to try out the new menu at Dog Bowl. We went to the branch on Whitworth street and although I’d never been before, we are often in the area as we go to gigs at the O2 Ritz quite a lot. The Dog Bowl is an informal, light hearted and friendly place and has quite a cool, grungy vibe. In fact we’ve definitely discovered a brilliant restaurant for a pre-gig meal now. Dog Bowl isn’t just a restaurant and bar though, it has 5 full length ten pin bowling lanes so makes the perfect venue for a post-work hangout or a great spot for a catch up with some friends. The tex mex menu is bursting with dirty burgers, smokey ribs fresh from the grill and plenty more delicious and satisfying dishes.
