To get an invitation to try the new menu at Malmaison Manchester is to be filled with trepidation and anticipation.
Trepidation because how could it match up to previous experiences:
It did and it was fabulous.
Tried and tested for organic mancs, honorary mancs, visitors to manc, new additions to this summer menu at Malmaison include the rather wonderful…
Pan fried sea scallops, red pepper puree, tapenade, samphire and sauce vierge…
Seared soy glazed salmon, crunchy hot and sour salad, toasted cashew nuts, red chilli, pousse and crisp gem lettuce (shhh my favourite and I’m not even a big salmon eater)…
Summer stew of grilled Merguez sausages, cannellini beans tomatoes, parsley, garlic and grilled Altamura bread (those sausages pack a punch – spicy, hot but nothing heavy about that dish)…
Burgers on offer are –
- Ayrshire bacon and gruyere cheese
- Chez Mal breaded buttermilk chicken, tangy tomato chutney, melted Reblochon cheese and pomme frites
- Mushroom chestnut and field mushroom, grilled Romano pepper, pommes frites and mushroom jalapeno marmalade.
Steaks from the josper grill:
Chez Mal’s exclusive UK 28 day aged beef, all served with whole baked vine tomato, onion rings and green salad:
450g T bone
450g Bone in sirloin
450g prime rib (tried, tested and pictured below)…
Chez Mal still brings afternoon tea to the table, the sweet side bringing seasonal cheesecake, salted caramel chocolate brownie, Bakewell tart, double chocolate cupcake & seasonal fruit shake, along with fruit or plain scones, clotted cream & strawberry jam
