We also picked another fish starter, the mackerel with watermelon gazpacho. I love mackerel and I picked this as I was quite intrigued by the rest of the dish. I never have had fruit with a main meal before but the watermelon and blood orange complimented the fish perfectly. The mackerel was topped with leaves that the Lowry has grown on their roof and I was one of the first people to ever try this addition to the dish! The mackerel dish is on the menu for £8 and the scallop dish for £9.
For our main, we ordered the Pan fried cod, salt cod croquette, spring peas, kale in a lemon butter sauce and the Gnocchi, pesto, cherry tomato, parmesan and olive oil. When I eat out I usually go for a chicken dish but decided to go for another fish dish and I’m so happy that I did. The cod was so tasty and the lemon butter sauce was incredible. I could have had that sauce poured all over my meal. It was nice to pick something different than my usual order because as much as I love chicken, I am trying to branch out and try more new foods.
We also had the Italian dish Gnocchi which I loved. I’ve only had Gnocchi once before so it was nice to try this dish, even if we had no clue how to actually pronounce it when we ordered haha. The cod dish on the menu is £18 and the gnocchi dish is £17.
For our final course (and my favourite) we ordered the Triple chocolate gateau, cherry, praline curd and cherry ice cream and the Caramelised white chocolate parfait, toffee apple oat biscuit with creme fraiche. O m g they were sooo good. I love white chocolate so for me, this was my first choice and it was delicious. I loved that it was decorated with apple crisps, it looked so pretty and dried fruit is my fave.
