at Secret Diner Levy

Secret Diner Levy is a new venture from Jimmy, a man who has been cooking Malaysian food at markets, The Kitchens in Spinningfields and in a small takeaway (now closed) under the name, Nasi Lemak. I’ve visited his stall a few times and the food has been consistently good.

Every year, there are over 28,000 blockages in the North West of England, caused by people throwing fats and food scrap down the drain.
