I have heard about Australasia as one of Manchester’s fine dining experience and was excited to be trying their new menu. We were all sat outside on the Terrace with plenty of heated lamps to keep us warm on what was a cool evening. Australasia, as the name suggests, serves food with an Australian and Asian spin. With drinks and canapé versions of the food throughout the evening, I will fill you in with what I was able to try. *
Elsa had been wanting to try Federal Cafe and Bar for a while as she heard they make good breakfasts/brunches; they serve New Zealand and Australian food. Elsa and Ryo struggled a bit to find it as the place is relatively new to Manchester at the time and there weren’t many external photos of the cafe, but it was literally opposite the end of Arndale market. We arrived at about 12:30 pm, just as a crowd was leaving and another entered. We were both surprised at how popular this place was.
