I am one of those people who has a brunch obsession. Are there any people who don’t have brunch obsessions in 2016? I love poached eggs on everything, and I regularly eat breakfast food for my evening meals. What you gonna do.
Federal is a little New Zealand/Australian brunch bar nestled in Northern Quarter in Manchester, which does brunch all day, and then cocktails in the evenings. Pretty sure that’s the best business idea I’ve ever heard.
And it was the BEST brunch.
I had a hard time choosing what to get from the menu, so what I did instead was I got just about everything, and that turned out to be a great life decision. I could hardly move afterwards, but I had Halloumi and Shrooms from the menu, which involves pan fried halloumi, garlic and thyme roast mushrooms, spiced tomato relish, a poached egg, and rocket, all on sourdough toast… and then I added extra bacon and smashed avocado… because of reasons.
I accompanied this with a matcha green tea latte, which tasted as pretty as it looked.
If I worked in Manchester you could find me in there at least once a week… so if you have yet to discover this place, or if you’re ever passing through, I urge you to pop in. You won’t regret it.
