Today I’ve tried the Chickn Gyros Pitta (which includes chips and salad) and Baklava for dessert from What the Pitta.
Okay, I know this looks like it’s been dropped but it was only folded loosely and upon picking it up, my lack of co-ordination (because I’m Dyspraxic) did not help with that 😆
I really wanted to like this but I found the chickn to be a little too sweet. There was a dire lack of Tsziki dressing, which I was really disappointed by. I ended up adding lots of mayo and some gherkins instead, as it was the best I could do.
The Baklava was the best I have ever eaten, anywhere, which was a wonderful surprise!
As you probably know I ‘don’t do cooking’ because Im too neurodiverse to function…in the kitchen for very long. So every ingredient here is incredibly simple to ‘cook’ and combine to make something tasty.
Everything here is dairy and gluten free apart from Amy’s Kitchen Rice Mac and Cheese which has dairy.

I’ve bought great gluten free pasta but I find making dairy-free cheese sauce (that I actually like) so faffy! I’m going to try using vegan cream cheese or vegan mayo instead with rice milk and nutrional yeast. Wish me luck!
I hope you’ve found this basic list of ingredients for takeaway favourites helpful. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.
I love sushi but was finding it hard to get interesting, vegetarian sushi etc. delivered to East-Central Manchester, until I found Honi Sushi on Deliveroo. They are a London sushi restaurant who have now branched out, up North.
Sea Salted Edamame (they come in the pods so you bite the ends off and squeeze out the beans, a nice thing to occupy yourself with when watching trashy TV), with Spicy Sauce (one little taste made my whole head feel like a volcano!)
Avocado Roll x6
Vegetable Special Roll x 5
Strawberry Cheesecake Mochi (little, squishy balls of heaven)
This is the freshest and most creative veggie sushi I’ve eaten for a long time!
Honi Sushi has had 15% off its entire menu for a while now, which I’m glad about as I hate paying restaurant prices for takeaway (when there is also a minimum order price and delivery charge).
I also recommend Sake, 4 Ashton Rd, Droylesden, Mcr
Even if you have a vegetarian, gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet (mine is for ethical and food intolerance reasons), there are still so many things you can eat! So I thought I’d share my tiny fridge and stupidly large cupboard with you.
Top (left to right) Nairn’s Whole Grain (gf) Crackers, Momasa Lemon and Peppercorn tortilla chips, Biona Fruit Bears, Kind Dark Choc, Nuts & Sea Salt, Pulsin Brownie Peanut & Choc Chip.
Middle Asda Sesame Oil, Felippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wicked Kitchen Garlic and Herb Nooch (nutritional yeast which gives things a cheesy taste like mild Parmesan), Nice and Easy Cheese Flavour Sauce Mix, Amy’s Kitchen Tomato Soup, Amy’s Kitchen Lentil Soup, Amoy Rice Noodles.
Bottom Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Le Conserve Detla Nonna Green (vegan) Pesto, Nice and Easy Chickpea and Vegetable Curry, Garlic cloves (I prefer garlic purée in a tube lol), Tilda Microwave Mushroom Rice, Morrison’s Hot Paprika, Ground Black Pepper.
I’m so glad I’ve come across Ask Italian, a nationwide restaurant chain that has wonderful vegetarian options, a gluten-free pizza and pasta menu, plus a vegan menu.
This is their Non-Gluten Verdure pizza, with mushroom, red pepper, black olives, artichoke, mozzarella and basil (£9.95) You can add any extra topping and a spicy tomato dip to your order for around a quid each.
This has to be the best gluten-free base that I’ve ever tasted. It’s thin, floppy but still slightly crispy, like a traditional Italian base. It doesn’t have that thick, flowery texture that gf takeaway bases have.
Hello lovely people! I recently tried Biffs Vegan Burgers and Wingz – Manchester so here’s what I thought…
I ordered the Bourbon BBQ Wingz (Jackfruit with a sugar cane ‘bone’) and simple Cajun Dusted Sweet Potato Fries, with Bacon Jam for dipping. I can just imagine Peter Kay saying “Bacon Jam!? BACON jam!?” lol
A huge portion of tasty fries arrived and the jam tasted uncannily of bacon!
I just wish the Jackfruit had a slightly more substantial texture, wondering if a chunky mushroom might be better/closer?
I refrained from ordering the more elaborate ‘Filthy Fries’ and slaw on the side, as I already had enough for two meals.
This is the gluten free double BBQ burger (with ‘cheese’ and ‘bacon’ from Wholesome Junkies. It’s got me thinking that burger buns should be replaced with a huge amount of crunchy (massively loaded) fries as standard!
The portion is so generous, this has been my tea and now my dinner. 😛😋
