If you follow me on social media you will know how much I love Vivid Lounge in Ancoats. It is my local cafe/bar and> I really enjoy spending time there looking out to the canal. Their food is amazing, and> I feel so lucky to live so close. To find out more about this hidden gem you can check out my previous post HERE. Imagine how happy I was then when I learnt they were launching a Thai Style Sunday lunch. Yes very, and> I booked in straight away.

Forget your traditional Sunday Roast, this is a Vivid Lounge Sunday Lunch…..

Vivid Lounge Sunday Lunch SidesDescribed as a sharing style feast designed to be enjoyed whilst spending quality time with friends and> family. The idea was inspired by the staff’s trip to Head Chef Dan’s mums house, a few hours North of Bangkok. Where a feast was served up every day. Including numerous treats such as curry, fried meats, dips and> salads.  The Vivid Lounge version follows this style.  A set menu with a little bit of lots of different dishes, it sounded incredible. The Beef Massaman curry is one of my favourites at Vivid, I order it more often than not. But this menu presented an opportunity to try some other dishes.

On sitting down we ordered drinks and> awaited the food, we were super excited when we saw the waitress coming over with our plate of goodness.

Vivid Lounge Sunday Lunch CurriesHighlights were of course the Beef Massaman, and> the Sweetcorn Fritters, two of my all time favourites.

But the whole menu was delicious, the crispy chicken wings were full of flavour and> the super spicy Mushroom Curry was delicious. Although it did leave your lips burning. I also enjoyed the pork meat, which was cooked beautifully and> not dry at all. Their version of corn fritters a traditional Thai Street food dish is also amazing, especially when dipped in their homemade chilli sauce.

Vivid Lounge Sunday Lunch DessertAnd then it was onto dessert…..

Something I would never choose to order myself I was pleasantly surprised. Coconut Rice served with Mango.  It had a beautifully sweet taste, laced with coconut but not overpowering. The Mango worked really well, and> it was a light end to a lovely meal.

The set menu cost £10 per head and> all the above was included. The price may vary along with the dishes, as the menu is likely to change each week. However it should always be around the £10-£15 mark so definite value for money.  Vivid offer some of the best Thai food in Manchester, and> their new Sunday Lunch Menu is no exception.  A great way to spend a relaxed Sunday, you should definitely book in!
