Australasia, Manchester

OK, I admit that my menu selection is not entirely vegan but it took a noble effort on the part of your favourite Goat to avoid the Crispy Suckling Pork Belly with Pineapple Curry so give me credit. Australasia is one of my favourite places to eat. Uber cool and underground in Spinningfield and a smokin’ hot nominee for the BGS Grazin Awards 2017. Perfect cooking, effortless service and big comfy booths to relax into. Start with a Watermelon and Chilli cocktail and sit back with an enormous sigh of pleasure.

Tempura Asparagus and Green Beans with Truffle Mayonnaise

(I hid the Mayonnaise so you can’t steal it)


Pea and Potato Wontons in Sake Broth with Coconut Rice

(That’s a real banana leaf)

Wontons and rice

Kaffir Lime Brûlée with Pineapple Sorbet

Lime Custard



Visit their website to book and clock the menus. Other herbivorous offerings include Asparagus with Sesame Glaze, Poached Tofu and Quinoa, Steamed Endame with Chilli and Lime Salt, Mango Gem and Avocado Roll.

Again, an honest review for BGS – no inducements, no reward, paid for my own meal – pricey for two with wine but worth every single penny!
