Our guest reviewer Rebecca went along to try the Sunday Roast dinner offering at one of Manchester’s newest restaurants, Mamucium. Here’s what she had to say…
Whether it’s a chilled Sunday, a hungover Sunday or a Sunday spent with the family – one thing they all have in common is a roast dinner.
Let’s face it, we’d have one every day if we could.
I know what you’re thinking: nothing beats Mum’s (or Dad’s – hey it’s 2019 people) Sunday Roast, but we have news for you – we’ve found one that may just top it.
Mamucium is still very much a new kid on the block in Manchester. As it’s only been open for six months, we feel that people might not have come across this gem in the city centre just yet.
A stone’s throw away from Victoria Station and a few minutes from Manchester Arndale, The Printworks and The National Football Museum, it really is in a prime spot. And with a name that is a throwback to our Manc history, beautiful decor and unreal food, we had to share our latest experience with you.
Headed up by chef, Andrew Green, Mamucium prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients and a Sunday Lunch is no exception.
With the Roast included in the set menu for only £2 more, it means you can snap up three courses with beef or chicken and all the trimmings for only £19.95!
We started off with the soft burrata, served with asparagus, rocket, balsamic and most importantly, Nduja sourdough crumble.
Ultimate cheese goals with a touch of spice and crunch – sweet dreams really are made of cheese. For something a little healthier, my plus one had the charred asparagus, sun blushed tomato and artichoke salad, which was also delicious.
Everyone is precious about their Sunday dinner, most of all Mancs. And trust me, I’m no exception. So when two beautifully presented plates came out with jugs of gravy on the side, I couldn’t wait to tuck in.
Both the chicken and beef did not disappoint. I’m not sure I could even choose a favourite. Both served with crispy roast potatoes, greens and of course, a giant yorkshire pudding. Both dishes had all the trimmings you’d expect on a Sunday Roast and were seasoned to perfection.
Of course, we still had room for dessert. We went for sweet, despite the cheese board option – all locally sourced, North West cheeses, talked about with passion by staff.
The Cox Apple Crumble was was crunchy, tasty and very substantial. We also tried the salted caramel custard tart with pecan ice cream – every bit as indulgent as it sounds.
This place is almost too good to share but if you really want to impress, cure a hangover, or treat yourselves to the utlimate Sunday Roast dinner in Manchester, this is definitely the place!
