After snow sun and rain in one day I feel like I’ve been around the world. What a hectic day its been but I’m so glad it’s the weekend. Today I’ve got a post that I’ve never done but I’m so excited to share this with you guys.
About a fortnight ago me and my dad took a trip into Manchester around 12pm for lunch. Luckily we got invited by Vapiano which is located in the Corn Exchange, and it was totally an honour to attend. If you didn’t already know Vapiano is an Italian restaurant, for me I couldn’t have been happier as I live off pasta and pizza!
Pasta, pizzas, antipasti and salads can be ordered directly from the chefs at the individual stations in the middle of the Vapiano restaurant. The chefs prepare all of the dishes to order in front of the guests and you can have the meal tailored exactly to your needs! On arrival you are given a Vapiano card where everything you eat or drink is added which is used to pay at the end of your meal.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was too loud and not even quiet it was perfect to catch up with whoever your meal was with it felt so open and relaxed which is always a bonus to enjoying your meal. The decor was one of my favourite aspects, as this was simple but the simplicity of it just added another sophisticated yet calm vibe!
Onto the food, for a starter we ordered brushetta served with olives [ciabatta bread, marinated tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil] because who doesn’t love it? Plus its so tasty to start the meal of with. Then for my main I couldn’t decide between pasta or pizza as I love the both as equally but in the end I went for the tonno pizza [tuna,red onions, tomato sauce and mozzarella]. This was such a lovely tasting pizza as I could taste the flavours compared to a normal pizza. Then finally for desert I decided to go for bacio [chocolate and hazelnut with biscuit base]. This was in the cutest little jar topped with a strawberry, I couldn’t get over how cute it looked I didn’t want to dive in! But when I did I wasn’t disappointed it was such a delicious desert. Not to also mention how good the pineapple juice is like seriously its like happiness in a bottle. I had no words.
I’m definitely taking my friends here soon! I love it!! The excitement of being able to choose where to sit on the laid back wooden stools or the comfy chairs in the corner its all such a good experience its like being on a journey and watching the friendly chefs make your food is so fascinating. I will be doing a post real soon on the #EatPastaRunFaster campaign so keep an eye out!
