If your weekends have been looking pretty bleak, then it’s time to rejoice – because Tipsy Tapas is coming back and it’s here to brighten your weekends with fun, sociable grub. And it’s an absolute treat for tapas fans, combining the traditional bottomless brunch with Mediterranean cuisine.
‘Tipsy Tapas’ will take place every Friday between 2pm – 5pm, and every Saturday from 12pm to 4pm at Ancoats’ Canto, allowing guests to choose from three tapas dishes as part of their meal – and there’s a wide variety of dishes to choose from as part of the menu. Seafood lovers can enjoy salt cod fritters with tartare sauce or crispy fried squid with aioli, with plenty of veggie options and a number of tasty meat dishes, too.
Sample the likes of mini chorizo, potatoes, fried egg and crispy shallots; jamón croquetas, classic Italian beef meatballs, tomato sauce and parmesan shavings or chargrilled peri peri chicken. For those of the veggie and vegan persuasion, choose from four tasty plant-based tapas dishes including piquillo croquetas with basil aioli; caramelised cauliflower with romesco sauce; patatas bravas with spiced tomato sauce and aioli; and roasted aubergine with piquillo peppers, confit tomatoes and onion, topped
with goats cheese.
To complete the meal, guests can also take advantage of unlimited drinks (you can also mix and match) – including cava, Bellinis, house wine, lager, fizz and Sangria, all of which can be ordered as often as you’d like for 90 whole minutes. You will, of course, need to sensibly finish your previous drink before ordering another, but that goes without saying.
Inside the venue itself, patrons are greeted to a fresh yet warm environment, with Mediterranean-style painted woods, hanging plants and patterned Portuguese tiles, with a hint of Manchester’s industrial style that runs throughout many of our city’s venues. It’s a small piece of Portugal in a usually gloomy Mancunia – but boy, is it a welcome slice of the sunshine life.
This Tipsy Tapas costs just £38 per person for 90 minutes of bottomless drinks and three plates per person. Simply book a table at Canto online selecting Tipsy Tapas with your preferred time slot.
Canto is open Monday to Thursday, 5pm til late, and Friday to Sunday, 12pm til late, and can be found at Cutting Room Square, Blossom St, Ancoats, M4 5DH.
