Eating Out in Manchester: Zouk Tea Bar & Grill

Eating Out in Manchester: Zouk Tea Bar & Grill

Look at these guys, I would be totally lost without them! I met up with Fran and Daisy the other week for a mastermind session and we were totally shocked to realise it had been almost a year since we last all met up together. We talk a lot about business together and so we arrange to meet up every now and then to discuss goals and just life… it usually ends up being mostly the latter with cocktails and wine, haha!

We were invited to hang out at Zouk Tea Bar in Manchester this time to chat and try out their menu and I just wouldn’t be myself if I turned down a delicious Indian meal! I had heard of Zouk, but I didn’t even realise it was Indian food until Fran sent me the menu (does anyone else like to choose what they’re going to eat before they even get to the restaurant?!). I was really excited to see so many paneer curry options as I love to try eat meat free as much as possible when I go out to eat and paneer is one of my favourite vegetarian alternatives.

For starters I chose Spicy Prawn Cakes, which were only moderately spiced, but completely delicious with the saffron mayo they came with and I’m excited to try making it myself at home – I love dipping sauces and condiments! After a long deliberation I choose the Palak Paneer with spinach, but I’d love to try all the paneer dishes at some point – the sauce was really tasty and again moderately spiced, but the paneer was sadly a little tasteless. Next time I might ask if they can make it tandoori style! The naan breads were delicious and I only wish I could have eaten it all!!

I was a little disappointed by the lack of dessert choices on the day we went to Zouk Tea Bar as I had heard they have loads of fresh cakes on offer, but we were served a generous three-scoop ice cream with lots of caramel sauce so I can’t complain! I love a good ice cream to cleanse my mouth at the end of a meal and especially to put out the fire of a good curry! We also enjoyed a nice bottle of red wine, which I always love to accompany Indian food. The restaurant is quite large with plenty of different seating options and room for large parties – a big group were happily seated while we were there, but there was plenty of space so we never felt like they encroached on our afternoon.

After our lovely meal at Zouk Tea Bar we headed to Allotment bar for more chatting working and a few drinks to settle into Sunday evening. We chose a seat by the window and the view of the beautiful lights outside from the cosy bar was the perfect spot to unwind and dream the evening away. We finished the night with a hot chocolate and headed off home with full bellies and heads ready to take over the world! Loves x xx

Eating Out in Manchester: Walrus Cocktail Lounge

Cool Bars in Manchester

I’m a long time fan of Walrus in Manchester. My first time was a ‘stumble into the nearest bar’ kind of visit to have a good old laugh with some friends before a gig. We ordered a cocktail and then one turned into several and we were having so much fun we ended up missing half of the gig.

Since then Walrus has kind of been a Manchester staple and as I often find myself eating out in Manchester, earlier this year we tried their food for the first time. Service and value are great and their pizzas are so tasty that I took Boyfriend there when we went to see Kula Shaker last month.

Booze wise I think the Walrus bar is kind of limited. For a bar in the Norther Quarter they don’t seem to have many cool beers and you certainly won’t find a fruit beer in sight, gutting I know! For soft drinks they also don’t have San Pellegrino and when I asked they didn’t seem forth coming with any great alternatives – however the wine is good and of course get indulging in those distracting cocktails too!

Food wise, oof it’s a good ‘un! They have a good menu selection featuring mix and match sliders, which I am yet to try but sound ace, and some super tasty sounding pizza. Their pizzas are huge! Great for sharing of course and full disclosure I totally ate a whole one to myself. The base is also quite unusual – very thin and crispy and just really delicious, so eat up your crusts.

Depending how hungry you are do be warned! They have pizza boxes for you to take your leftovers home for later of course, but if you’re heading out for a night on the town that might not be ideal. However they are equally as good cold as a perfect post drinking snack!

The decor in Walrus is just really fun, I mean they have a giant walrus on the wall, what. The copper tables and lampshades, coupled with the succulent table decor is a must for any hipster types… perfect for instagramming.

In conclusion, Walrus is definitely a favourite for eating out in Manchester.
