Mamucium, Manchester – Northern Inspiration
Situated within Manchester’s brand-new Hotel Indigo next to Victoria Station, Mamucium is a 120-seat restaurant and bar named after the Roman fort that was the birthplace of modern Manchester. Heading up the kitchen team at this impressive new venue is double-AA-rosetted chef Andrew Green, Manchester-born and committed to creating a roster of classic dishes with a unique, northern spin.
Guests can choose from a selection of mouth-watering starters including, Mamucium’s Lancashire Onion Soup. A Northern take on the classic French Onion Soup, this dish includes onion cooked in delicately constructed lamb broth, topped off with a Lancashire cheese croute. Other starters include a Smoked Cheshire Beef Hash and Manchester Smoke House Salmon.
For the main course, there are seven delicious ‘signature’ dishes to choose from including a flavoursome Lancashire Hot Pot prepared using Yew Tree Farm’s finest cannon of lamb, as well as Goosnargh Chicken, which is served with Blackstick Blue creamed potatoes. The menu also has a tempting ‘Grilled’ section, featuring premium and succulent cuts of beef, pork and fish, which are simply seasoned and grilled. The main attraction here being the Lancashire beef, which is aged for 28 days in a Himalayan salt chamber.
The dessert menu at Mamucium doesn’t disappoint either. Highlights include Mamucium Manchester Tart – a fresh custard tart, filled with delicious homemade raspberry jam, banana crisps and shaved coconut; a scrumptious Bakewell Steamed Sponge served with vanilla pod ice cream, and Warm Mini Eccles Cakes served with Trinity burnt cream, caramel crumb and wild berries.
Also housed within Mamucium is M Café, a cosy café located within the original part of the beautifully restored Grade II-listed City Buildings. M Café serves an array of snacks including soups, salads, deli sandwiches, tapas and sharing plates, cakes and pastries in addition to locally ground coffee and specialist teas.
