Avalanche





Myself and Joe were very kindly invited down to Avalanche Manchester to properly try out what they had on the menu. I had very positive images of when I attended the opening night for the restaurant so I knew that the evening was going to be a fantastic one from the start and could not wait to try out their dishes properly. When we arrived we were greeted by the absolutely fantastic staff and waiters who were extremely friendly and more than helpful throughout the evening. 

Myself and Joe ordered a bottle of Merlot and delved into the fantastic menu. 



To start, I chose to have the King Praws which were very kindly recommended by our lovely waiter. I am not massively into my fish dishes but I am not put off by fish at all and have certain fish dishes I really do adore. Joe ordered Brushetta which had chopped tomatoes and basil. When our starters arrived I was so very impressed by the quality of the presentation given to the smallest detail of the dishes. I particularly loved the presentation of my dish and they way the King Prawns were used as part of the decorative element of the dish. 

With regards to taste, the starters were sublime, the seasoning of my King Prawns was to die for. If you are wanting to try out more fish dishes but are put off by the somewhat 'fishy' taste some of them have, this meat and ingredients it was paired with was an absolute dream. Joe's brushetta was a dish we had tried at the opening evening and absolutely adored and could not help but order it again when we came.



Then onto our very delicious mains! I opted for fillet steak but requested a Dianne sauce as this is just my absolute favourite sauce when it comes to red meat and will forever be my first choice. I opted to have it cooked medium rare and it came with chunky fries, mushroom and tomato. I am always a lover of a fabulous steak and this more than satisfied me. 

Joe however opted to choose from the specials menu. Avalanche have a really fabulous selection of fish dishes especially on their specials menu. Joe went for the Lobster Linguini, and he absolutely lit up when it arrived and he was able to taste it. I had to sneak a taste in and I was blown away by the beautiful flavour of the lobster. I have never really had lobster or felt the need to order it as it does tend to be a more expensive dish, but myself and Joe could really see why you pay more. The tenderness and flavour of the lobster was incredible and it was cooked to perfection. 



Finally onto afters! Who doesn't love desert? Desert was something we could not say no to. We had a look at the menu for deserts are there was a really fabulous selection and we were told we would be trying the desert platter which consisted of three smaller sized deserts to allow us to have a taste of the different pudding options. 

There was a beautiful Tiramisu, chocolate cake and lemon cheesecake and they were all divine. For me the idea of being able to share a desert was amazing as after a starter and a main I was more than full! The presentation again was amazing as you can tell by the images. Finally we finished off the night at Avalanche with some coffee and a pot of tea for me, a really lovely and relaxing way to end an evening and an immanent food coma. 

Thank you ever so much for Avalanche again for inviting Joe and myself down to their wonderful restaurant, we are already talking about when we can return. If you are local to Manchester and looking for somewhere very well priced for the brilliant food quality or somewhere new to try then I more than recommend a visit.
