I was staying up in Manchester. I was staying at the Macdonald Manchester Hotel. I had stayed at the hotel before in 2015, though back then I didn’t have dinner in the hotel. This time I was eating in the hotel.
After enjoying my Barnsley Chop, this time I went with the Wild Mushroom dish.
This was described on the menu as assorted wild mushrooms, asparagus, white truffle oil, port wine cream, mini fondants, puff pastry and tenderstem broccoli.
This dish had huge potential to be an outstanding plate of food, alas it wasn’t.
Well, firstly, I couldn’t find any mini fondants. the puff pastry was a little flat and I did struggle to find the wild mushrooms in the dish. Having said that I did enjoy the asparagus and the tenderstem broccoli. The sauce was nice, but I did struggle to taste the truffle.
Overall I did quite enjoy the dish, but this a mediocre plate of food and I wish it could have been better.
