When it comes to brunch, the options always seem endless, but the reality is that most places just do the same thing in a slightly different way.
Avocado this, poached eggs that…. You know what I mean.
But if you fancy brunch with a difference and just so happen to be in Manchester, then you might want to check out Zouk.
Tucked away off Oxford Road, you will find a little haven of traditional Indian, Pakistani and grill dishes, all prepared by freshly in the open kitchen.
Having visited Zouk several times before (both for a cooking experience and a general review), I knew to expect a quality dining experience. And I was not disappointed.
Zouk Brunch Menu
The Zouk Brunch Menu has a variety of Savoury Plates, Sandwiches and Desi Classics to choose from.
Perfect to suit most tastes – especially if you love a little bit of spice to kickstart your day.
I was tempted to try the sheep trotters, but I thought I would play is safe and go for the Zouk version of my all time favourite dish….The Bollywood Benedict.
Whenever I go out for brunch I tend to opt for Eggs Benedict. I just love the creamy sauce teamed with a perfect poached egg.
The Zouk Bollywood Benedict took the concept of the classic and added a zingy tikka hollandaise sauce with a moreish turkey bacon. Not only that, but the spinach also made it healthy (or so I’d like to tell myself)
My only criticism is that the turkey bacon could have done with just a little more crunch.
However this didn’t detract from the flavours in the dish itself and I’m still craving the sauce even now.
I can’t wait to go back and eat my way through the rest of the Zouk Brunch Menu.
