dsc03230 Manchester has really increased its profile over the last few years with new bars and restaurants popping up all over the city. I remember the Printworks from my teenage years but it has now all changed and is a great destination for restaurants, bars and entertainment whether you want a quick mid week bite or a date night dinner. I was invited along to try out Wagamama which is situated on the outside of the Printworks, next to Busaba Eathai.

dsc03231 dsc03234I would never think that Wagamama would serve fresh juices, this really surprised me. I tried out the positive juice which was delicious. dsc03238 dsc03244

To start my guest and I tried out the chicken gyoza and the steamed bun (which are new to Wagamama) which was filled with duck. They were both delicious and tasty. dsc03253dsc03248dsc03255dsc03259For the main course I opted for the duck donburi which was different to how I imagined it. It was a giant bowl of rice layered with shredded duck, a fried egg and some thinly sliced cucumber. It took me about half an hour to get through this dish and even then I couldn’t finish it! dsc03263

Not forgetting my sweet tooth, for dessert I tried out the white chocolate & ginger cheesecake which was drizzled with a chilli toffee, ginger sauce. You could really taste the ginger which I liked, it wasn’t too strong either. If you like cheesecake then I would highly recommend this dessert.
