Exterior of the Botanist at Media City

The Botanist at Media City, Salford

When Botanist first came to Manchester, I got really excited about a space which combines dining with the aesthetics of a garden. We all know Manchester isn’t best known for its sunny skies, so creating an indoor environment where you can socialise and chill sounds ideal to me. Here, I explore Botanist’s spring menu at their Media City site in Salford, Greater Manchester with my blogger friend, Lacey of Laceyfitspo.*

The famous cherry blossom tree at Tattu

at Tattu Restaurant and Bar

Tattu was one of those places I’ve pondered visiting for a while. With an Asian fusion vibe, the food was either going to be hit or miss. I’m not against the idea of Asian fusion food, but as I grew up with Asian food, I know what is considered good by those standards and will therefore draw comparisons. Of course, I also grew up eating Western cuisine from my home country of Northern Ireland so I’ve had a varied upbringing in terms of food.

Long Island Ice Tea

at Revolution Bar

With a boom in cocktail making classes all across places in the UK, you are really spoilt for choice on where to do it in. Revolution Bar has long been a forerunner in this I feel, so here I will share my experiences of the food I had there as well as the actual cocktail masterclass.*

Slug and Lettuce drinks

at Slug and Lettuce in Spinningfields

I’ve never been inside a Slug and Lettuce prior to this review. If a restaurant is a huge chain and appears to do American or English food, it tends to slip my mind. I was therefore very grateful when they invited me for a small Cocktail Masterclass as well as some food as this gives me an opportunity to try a place that I had not thought of. Thank you to my dearest blogger friend, Lacey of Laceyfitspo, for inviting me to this. There are a number of branches of Slug and Lettuce in Manchester alone, but this review will focus on the Spinningfields branch. *
