Tweet Eats: Tusk, Northern Quarter, Manchester
Discovering new places to eat and drink in Manchester is one of my favourite past times so when I was invited to visit the recently refurbished Tusk in the Northern Quarter, I couldn't wait.
We booked in for a Sunday afternoon after a shopping session, I always like to end a day of shopping with a cocktail and dinner to wind down before we head home. I also took the opportunity to wear my new 2nd Day coat from Coggles for the first time, I absolutely adore this coat and have not stopped wearing since! I wore it with my Grenson brogues, Oasis culottes and SheIn jumper.
It's just over the road from the Arndale so it's an ideal place to stop and refuel, with plenty of snack size options and bigger portion, it pretty much suits everyone. We got there pretty early so had the place to ourselves and had a little bit of everything on the menu (not quite but pretty close!) with a sharing platter, slider selection and a couple of cocktails.
The food was as good as it looks and actually better than we expected, the cheesy garlic bread was incredible, I'm making myself hungry just thinking about it...
One of my favourite things about it is that you can build your own sharing board from the nibbles and snacks menu, it's perfect for sharing (obv) with friends to make sure everyone gets something they love. We recommend the garlic bread and Jalapeno poppers! I'd be interested to go back and try the main dishes, based on the quality of the nibbles and sliders, I'm pretty sure they'd be top notch.
The cocktails were great too, they're all named after animals to fit in with the African theme (apart from maybe the Sex Panther...) I had The Turtle, a mixture of gin, pear, elderflower and prosecco - all of my favourite things.
