I recently celebrated my Birthday at one of top restaurants in Manchester, Peter Street Kitchen. But it’s not just a restaurant like any other. It’s special concept, that celebrates the art of shared dining and service they provide made My Special Day even more Special! But before I start telling you about the jaw-opening and literally mouth watering menu, let me tell you about it’s beautiful location. I moved to Manchester not long ago, and discovering this astonishing gem of this fantastic city was certainly unforgettable experience.
This vibrant and relatively new space is located at the revitalised Radisson Blu Edwardian, Manchester hotel, one of only two five-star hotels in the centre of the city. Guests here are able to choose from an array of small plates from two different cuisines, in this instance contemporary Japanese and Mexican, within a sophisticated yet unassuming setting.
Whether large groups or those wanting an intimate dinner for two, all will be seduced by an array of exquisitely prepared small plates. Showcasing flavours and ingredients from both nations, the venue will also offer semi-private dining and events, allowing guests to enjoy some privacy, whilst absorbing the ambience of the Kitchen. With communal bench tables and the pièce de résistance, the 12-seater Hibachi table, up to 28 guests can be accommodated. And although I celebrated with my husband and daughter, I will definitely coming back there for a bigger party in the future!
From Mexico come such colourful and piquant offerings as Shredded crab with spicy ginger mayo tostadas; Robata mescal-glazed smoked paprika ribs and Mayan-spiced marinated chicken ensalada with cashews, black lime & sesame oil. Meanwhile, clean and sophisticated Japanese flavours take centre stage in dishes that include Yellowtail sashimi with spicy yuzu soy. And let me tell you, that this particular dish along with Warm Wagyu beef stole my heart…and taste!
We also loved Chilli and lemon roasted baby chicken served on a Peter Street Kitchen Bincho Grill and Japanese flatbread with dried chilli & yuzu mayo. I have never been a fan of tempura dishes, but King crab tempura with ama ponzu was unforgettable. We loved every dish, and to be completely honest I actually didn’t want to share with my husband…just wanted to eat it all my myself!
And with a little room left for desserts, we made a space for Japan’s fragrant flavours including the moreish Chocolate bento box with genmaicha ice cream and Kuro goma cheesecake with hassaku orange sorbet. Once you try them, you will never want to eat any other desserts…ever! But words cannot really describe the whole experience of Peter Street Kitchen, you just have to try it yourself. Enjoy!
