Menagerie… Restaurant Review

Last Friday I went to Menagerie for dinner with the work
gals! I’d heard so many good things about it so my expectations were high, and
it did not disappoint.

The food was absolutely exceptional and the evening
entertainment included cabaret dancers that danced along a runway in the middle
of the restaurant. It had such a good vibe and drinks were 241 before 7.00pm
which was perfect timing for us as we booked our table for 6.00pm! (We had £100
worth of prosecco between us!!!)

I brought along my camera as I knew this place was somewhere
to blog about and got some lovely shots of the place and some of the food we

To start I had the lobster and prawn sesame toast, and damn
it was delicious. I can’t explain how heavenly it was. It was like taking your
average prawn toast from the Chinese takeaway and sprinkling it with gold dust.

For the main it was a no brainier for me, of course I was
going to pick the truffle and mushroom risotto. It was incredible and so so
rich. It did get a little bit much towards the end but I would definitely get
it again.

My friend Sarah got the seabass which I had a mouthful of
and fully enjoyed. The Edamame dip it came with was too good for words. We both
enjoyed each other’s so much that we decided we would swap next time!

For desert we couldn’t chose so shared three between the
five of us. The first was a homemade Fererro Rosher tart which was
really lovely, but very rich as it was mainly dark chocolate. I wouldn’t have
been able to finish it off myself but it was great to nibble on!

We also went for the mango, passionfruit and coconut meringue which
I didn’t try but word is it was incredible and definitely looked the part.

Last but not least was my personal favourite desert –
marshmallow doughnuts. What a treat they were. Unbelievable. 10/10. They were
both topped and filled with marshmallow fluff and hot chocolate sauce. If that
isn’t a winner then I don’t know what is! 

Take a look at Menagerie’s website for more beautiful
pictures and a full menu to drool at! If you live in the Manchester area I
definitely recommend going. Remember to get there before 7.00pm to get 241
drinks as they can be pricey!

Have you been to Menagerie before? If so, let me know what
you thought!
