Spooky season is fast approaching and Mans Market have come to the rescue and are giving us the perfect way to celebrate.
We are a huge fan of Mans Market, from their excellent bottomless brunch experiences to their fantastic afternoon tea.
The Chinese restaurant and bar concept is already a favourite in the city amongst foodies in the know, having been highly recommended by the Sunday Times.
Serving up a mix of dim sum, stuffed bao, sharing pans and ‘belly fillers’ alongside sides like triple cooked salt and pepper chips, stir fried mixed veg, egg fried rice and broccoli with chilli and garlic, we’re tempted to head down for a scran at any time of the week.
One things for certain, we will definitely be heading down on Saturday 29 October 2022 for their Halloween extravaganza, Day of the Dead brunch.
So, what can you expect? Well, a whole lot it seems for as little as £35 a head.
On arrival you will receive a glass of fizz or bottle of Asahi to get the party started. To start you can tuck into their legendary Mans Scare Box, a selection of delectable starters such as spring rolls, Szechuan king prawns and steamed chicken dumplings. Prefer veggie? No problem, veggie options include tempura cauliflower satay and five spiced fried tofu.
You’ll then be treated to nothing short of a banquet, a selection of Chinese favourites served alongside fried rice, steamed rice and noodles. Choose from chicken, beef and tofu to be served in your ‘Black- Magic-Bean’, ‘Open Sesame’ and ‘(I’m not) OK Sauce”.
Now for the exciting part, alongside your brunch you’ll be served three spooky-inspired cocktails created especially for this event. First up is the Sugar Skull, a concoction of Patron Silver, White Port, Butterfly Tea Syrup and Grapefruit Tonic. Then you’ve got the Coffee Alter, a caffeine fuelled cocktail laced with fig bitters and sea salted maple syrup to put a pep in your step.
Last but not least is the All Hallow’s’ Eve, a cheeky little fruity number with Patron Silver, Fresh Strawberry Cordial, Strawberry Bitters and Citric Syrup. And if you’re still thirsty then you can order an extra cocktail for just £5 each or a bucket of Asahi to plonk on the table for £20.
The brunch will be taking place on 29 October across five sittings throughout the day: 12:00, 14:30, 17:00, 19:30 and 22:00. So get your friends together, decide on a time that works for you and start planning your costumes for this unmissable event.
