Manchester Eats: Urban Cookhouse

On Sunday, I was invited to sample the newly opened Urban Cookhouse in Manchester. Situated on Princess Street (just across from the Gay Village), Urban Cookhouse is a Manhattan style bar and restaurant, serving unique takes on classic dishes.

I was very pleasantly surprised with how lovely it was inside, really cool and relaxed, atmospheric music playing, but not so loud that you can't talk!

I opted to sample their Espresso Martini seeing as I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur when it comes to the delightful pairing of espresso and kahlua. This one did not disappoint and I think there was also some baileys in there which was a lovely spin on the usual recipe.

For starter I had the halloumi stack with tomatoes, basil and croutons. It was delicious, the entire menu sounds so good and I have to say I was quite torn between all different things on there as everything sounded amazing!

I then had the whiskey chicken, served with coleslaw and sweet potato - it was SO GOOD! I could eat it again now!!! I then finished off with Carrot and Orange cake and my plus one (my friend Lauren) opted for the caramel trio which included liquid popcorn?! I have no idea what that actually was but woahhhhh it was good!!

I have to say that I really was extremely impressed with the menu, the food was beautifully presented, portion sizes were perfect and all in all the service was great. I would highly recommend Urban Cookhouse as a really nice restaurant. I'd say it's perfect for group meals where you might not want a night out as such but a relaxed busy restaurant with a lively atmosphere. It's also not very expensive too.

Thank you very much to Urban Cookhouse for inviting me. I will definitely be back!
