Dining options in Manchester and Liverpool vary from smart cafés offering Modern British and Continental fare to excellent international restaurants. Manchester has one of Britain's biggest Chinatowns, and locals also favor the 40-odd Bangladeshi, Pakistani, and Indian restaurants along Wilmslow Road in Rusholme, a mile south of the city centre, known as Curry Mile.

One local dish that has survived is Bakewell pudding (never called "tart" in these areas, as its imitations are elsewhere in England). Served with custard or cream, the pudding—a pastry covered with jam and a thin layer of almond-flavour filling—is the joy of Bakewell. Another regional creation is Lancashire hot pot, a hearty meat stew.
