What’s with the bacon, Mr Black?

10 Oct

A short blog really to talk about a one of the best bacon sandwiches I’ve ever had. Hickson and Black in is one of the relative newcomers to the deli scene in Chorlton but made a good name for itself. The deli / cafe has all the classic deli ingredients: fine cheeses, cured meats and olives the size of your head.

On Friday night we had a friend staying who had come up from ‘that London’. We’d had a few at the Horse and Jockey’s beer festival followed by some 7 year Rum back at ours. All of this adds up to the need for a good hangover breakfast.

One of the secret weapons that Hickson & Black’s has in its arsenal is the bread. From the bloomers to the barms to the bagels, I have never managed to find a baked product here that I don’t enjoy.  However if you find yourself ordering a Bacon barm from here, you’ll come up against a killer combination of the beautifully crusted yet light bread coupled with bacon so finely cured you’d swear it had been cured in even more bacon.

I dare say as I get round more of the delis in Manchester, I will add to the list of great bacon sandwich providers, but for now this is on my recommend to visit list.
