Situated in a beautiful Grade II listed building in Manchester's Northern Quarter, Cottonopolis oozes charm and sophistication. The building maintains many of its original features including the bare wooden floorboards where tailors once trod in their clogs. The interior décor is stunning, bespoke and luxuriously finished. There are four elements to choose from on the Japanese-inspired menu - Ice, Fire, Steam and Oil - and you can expect sashimi, pork yakitori, duck bao buns, vegetable tempura and katsu chicken amongst other small plates on offer. The drinks menu is compact and well thought out and features Czech tank beer, cocktails and a selection of sake.
Cottonopolis have announced that the acclaimed Vegetarian Chef Jay Morjaria will return on Monday 30th July for their next Vegan Kitchen takeover.
The menu will focus on Nikkei cuisine – Peruvian food with a heavy Japanese influence created when thousands of Japanese workers emigrated to the country over 100 years ago which has since lead to Peru having the second largest Japanese population in South America.
Jay is the founder and Executive Chef of Sutra Kitchen, a meat free cooking school in London as well as the Dynasty dining club. He has also recently appeared on the BBC’s million dollar menu.
As a passionate vegan, he will bring an unmistakable style developed during his travels throughout Asia to Cottonopolis. He believes plant based food can be inspiring and loves the challenge in changing people’s perceptions.
Cottonopolis is already well known for their Vegan offering, with many dishes on their menu being completely plant based, however they are constantly seeking to raise the bar and have therefore invited Morjaria back to demonstrate how innovative high quality vegan food can be.
Working alongside Head Chef Joe Grant, Jay has created a stunning eight course tasting menu including Red Pepper & Coriander Temaki, Stuffed Padron Antichuchos, Sweet Potato Miso Dengaku and a Chocolate & Avocado Mousse.
The menu is priced at £40 per person with a minimum of two people per booking. To book your table visit https://www.cottonopolis-nq.com/book-table/
