My cousin was in town for a few days. And no doubt about it, there was only one place to kick start her trip in Melbourne. That is, Manchester Press.
Avocado, Feta, Chilli and Mint Smash with Cherry Tomatoes, Roquette & Pine Nuts
Fresh, creamy, salty, healthy all rolled into one. Hands down, this had to be one of the best avocado smashes I've had to date. Deliciously rich in flavour, the avocado was dreamy - infused with creamy feta, chilli and mint. The addition of pine nuts were also great, giving the dish some texture and crunch.
Thick Sliced Pastrami with Sliced tomato, Sauerkraut and Swiss Cheese & Thousand Island Dressing
Keeping in line with the NYC feels, this Reuben bagel was an obvious choice for the two boys. And a winner winner it was. Thick cut pastrami was piled onto a sesame bagel, with melted Swiss under a solid helping of sauerkraut, tomato and thousand island dressing. The flavours were delicious, the sauerkraut added just the right amount of flavour to really take the bagel to the next level. On the side, the dish was freshened up with a small mixed garden salad.
Manchester Press certainly does not disappoint and consistently meet our hunger pangs and bagel cravings. It was definitely a unique place to show my cousin and boyfriend around given their delicious food, coffee and quirkiness.
