Sampling the Menu at Banyan Bar and Kitchen

Since I attended the Cocktail Tour at Manchester's Corn Exchange I have been keen to try more of the bars and restaurants within to sample the food on offer. I was given the opportunity to try the food at Banyan Bar and Kitchen and head there last week with my friend to see how it was.

Naturally, any good catch up and gossip with a pal includes cocktails and we tried their Aperol Spritzes which were delicious! And let's be frank, just tooooo easy to drink!

I opted for the glazed belly pork to start and my friend opted for the spring rolls. The belly pork had a lovely flavour and was very tasty, me being slightly greedy would have probably enjoyed even more of it!

For mains, I went for the crispy duck and watermelon salad and my friend had the CrossFit Burger.I definitely got food envy I can't lie.. The salad was actually really very nice, the combination of the crispy duck and the watermelon was perfect, kind of sweet and sour!

My only negative comment really would be that there was not alot of duck for the price and the menu stated that there would also be pomegranate seeds and there wasn't any. I don't think this made a massive difference taste wise but I do think this is quite expensive for what you get.

The CrossFit Burger looked really good.. it is a low carb burger so served without the bun and accompanied by sweet potato wedges and an avocado salad. Definitely a good option if you want an ok cheat meal!

I was impressed with the food and drink and will definitely be back! Thank you Banyan for a wonderful evening!

*In the interest of full disclosure, this meal was complimentary but I was not under any obligation to post about my experience. My post is my genuine opinion.
