Albert’s Schloss is located on Peter’s Street and it is hard not to spot with its impressive doors which is surrounded by foliage. I love watching how it changes with the seasons with beautiful wisteria in Summer and delicate fairy lights in Winter. I’ve heard many good things about their selection of beers and ales, so decided this would be an excellent place to bring a friend who would appreciate this. We visited one evening in December.
Malmaison is a boutique hotel chain located in many large cities, but did you know that many also have a brasserie attached? Yes, you can not only spend a night in luxury but you can also eat well without travelling far! Here, I will talk about my evening with Chez Mal, the brasserie in Manchester. *
With a lot of places doing Christmas showcases, it was refreshingly nice to see Pizza Express do a showcase on their Autumn menu. I know people may be sad to see the end of Summer, but Autumn has some of the best seasonal and festive foods! I was eager to see what Pizza Express would come up with to incorporate this and welcome Autumn into the year! There are several branches of Pizza Express within Greater Manchester with 6 in the city centre alone. On this occasion, I visited the Corn Exchange branch.*
It’s been nearly a year since I last visited Iberica and gave it a shining review, so when Iberica invited me again as part of a blogger’s meet up, I said yes instantly. The evening showcases their Spring menu as well as the art of using a porrón, a traditional Spanish drinking vessel for wine.*
I’ve been meaning to try Jamie’s Italian ever since it took over the old HSBC building on King Street. This HSBC was actually my bank when I first came over to Manchester for studies and I’ve not really been back since. I grabbed two friends and headed over to try their Super Lunch menu.*
After a pleasant trip to Pizza Express in Didsbury, I try the Pizza Express on Oxford Street. The restaurant has been refurbished with modern fixtures and artwork inspired by PizzaExpress’s prestigious history over last 50 years. As it was coming up to Christmas, the restaurant was decorated for the holidays and they also had their Christmas menu, which I will be reviewing.*
