Australasia New Menu: Foie Gras Is One Of The Best MCR Dishes

Lots of new grub teases the palate in the elegant Deansgate restaurant

Australasia New Menu: Foie Gras Is One Of The Best MCR Dishes
 

AUSTRALASIA is maintaining the standard beautifully. 

The foie gras is as smooth as silk, an absolute joy, enhanced by the sharpness of the rhubarb.  It is one of the top ten dishes in Manchester at present.

The elegant basement restaurant on Deansgate is already one of the top dining places in the North and the new dishes on the menu reinforce this.

If a picture is worth a thousand words then take a gaze at the loveliness below.

The images reek of refinement.

The dishes are crafted to look beautiful while bringing together various flavours. They offer classic contrasts of sweet with bitter flavours while the textures mingle rough with smooth. The colours dazzle.

The cannon of lamb, Japanese breadcrumbs and miso mustard with plum wonton is clever, cunning and well thought through in the kitchen, an 8/10 dish. The cep buttered corn-fed chicken with girolle mushroom fricassee is filled with that lovely earth kick of fungus. Superb.

But best of all is the foie gras and rhubarb that embodies all the best qualities of Australasia in terms of good flavours and good looks. The foie gras is as smooth as silk, an absolute joy, enhanced by the sharpness of the rhubarb.  It is one of the top ten dishes in Manchester at present. 9.5/10 easy.

Meanwhile the mixed sweet sushi is one of the oddest top ten dishes in Manchester. Try it if you wish to be challenged, go for the garden buttermilk pannacotta - main picture above - if you want something beautiful to look at but a little steadier. 

The new dishes add to the Australasia offer and builds on the excellence already evident in this fine restaurant. Get the wallet out and dig in.

Australasia is at 1 The Avenue,  Spinningfields, M3 3AE
