I like to think that when it comes to good food and cocktails, I have explored my beloved city of Manchester extensively!
I know who makes the best burgers (in my humble opinion of course) the best place to go for a greasy fry-up or to sip the most lavish champagne. When I was recently contacted by Revolucion de Cuba, Manchester and invited to try out their brand new brunch menu, I was intrigued to find out more.
Adam & I headed into Manchester, eager to see what they had in store. With an array of dishes on offer, we found it difficult to choose just one! From porridge brulee, Spanish omelette and granola berry parfait to a full grilled breakfast, there was plenty of variety. We ordered our drinks whilst we deliberated. I asked for the Mexican Breakfast cocktail (Tequila, grapefruit, orange and lime mixed with mandarin marmalade) without the alcohol as I was I driving. I was informed that this was unavailable so settled on a cafe mocha and Adam opted for a cappuccino. They also offer bottomless Mimosas and Bellinis at just £12 per person, so well worth the money if you fancy a little extravagance one weekend.
After a while, I finally decided on the Huevo Rancheros and Adam on the Brekky Buritto. Our food arrived promptly (within 10 minutes) and smelt amazing! My plate was loaded with a tortilla topped with spicy black beans, tomatoes and mushrooms, finished off with a fried egg and spicy rum sauce served with crispy patatas and a fresh salad. Adams Brekky Buritto was a floured tortilla roll filled with sausage, egg, chorizo, refried beans, jalapeños and cheese, topped off with crispy bacon. Whenever we eat out, we always like to try a little bit of the other persons meal, just to prevent any potential food envy from arising! I was impressed with both and although the portions didn’t look large, I found myself comfortably full after eating. I think next time, I’ll be trying either the Cubano Benedict or the Avocado Brunch.
The atmosphere was relaxed and the setting was vibrant. There was a live band playing whilst we ate, which provided background music without being too overbearing. Revolucion de Cuba also host salsa dancing classes, private parties, rum tasting sessions in both the restaurant and the Havana club downstairs. In my ongoing effort to try new things, I am determined to give the salsa dancing and rum tasting sessions a go this year 💛 I think my love of spiced rum could give an alcoholic pirate a run for his money so hopefully, Revolucion de Cuba can help me add a few more favourites to my growing collection!
