Meet the man on a mission to find Leeds best garlic bread

Garlic Bread Guy has ranked Everyman, Pizza Milano, Ramona Manchester, Livin Italy, San Carlos Flying Pizza and more so far.

‘Garlic Bread Guy’ has been on the hunt for over a year for good garlic bread and has had his work viewed by celebrities like Molly Mae Hague.

A Leeds university graduate wanted to open a pop-up garlic bread restaurant, but instead settled on the idea of reviewing his favourite food online instead.

@garlicbreadguy, known as Michael in real life, is dedicated to reviewing his different garlic breads around Leeds.

The account has over 1,000 followers with a good level of engagement, from just 45 posts.

So far, Garlic Bread Guy has tried out Ramona in Manchester (10/10); Everyman Cinema in Leeds (8.5/10) and Livin Italy (7/10), amongst other garlic bread hotspots around the North.

Reviews are honest and informal, but nonetheless provide us with a serious review of the dish.


The garlic bread enthusiast wrote:

“San Carlo Flying Pizza in Roundhay has one of my all time favourite cheesy garlic breads and I think you can see why! It’s a perfect size, just the right amount of cheesiness and the garlic and garlic oil is spot on!

“My friend said the only downside was that maybe there was a little toooo much oil on top so it made it feel a bit greasy but if I’m honest I think the more the better! This garlic bread is great as a sharing starter rather than all to yourself (although I could do it I’m sure)!

The San Carlo in Roundhay is farrrr better than the one in the city centre on Greek Street, the whole vibe and setting is just 100x better and makes the meal so much more enjoyable”.

More recent reviews have attracted the likes of Molly May Hague, former Love Island contestant and Pretty Little Thing Creative Director, to his page.

The comical reviewer acknowledged his influence on his most recent review of Ramona’s garlic bread, stating:

“Everyone at the table loved this, even bloody @mollymae the icon was watching my story to get in on all the action (I bet she loves a good cheesy garlic bread ngl).”
