We love eating out and we are really lucky that our girls are both quite adventurous when it comes to trying new things. Yesterday we headed to Turtle Bay in Manchester to find out more about their new kid’s menu and to sample some of the other items on the main menu.
The Kids menu at Turtle Bay comes with fresh dips and dippers on arrival which include vegetables, flatbread, hummus and smashed avocado. There is then a choice of the Tiny Turtles menu £5.95 or the Bigger Turtles menu £7.25 which both include a main and a soft drink. The menus include sweet corn fritters, flatbread pizza, burgers, wraps, Jerk chicken, BBQ ribs, Crispy squid, Duck rolls and more. The portions were a good size and the kids really enjoyed them although Alison would have liked more choice in toppings on the Flatbread Pizza. The kids have a choice of side dishes including Quinoa, slaw, salad, rice, fries and callaloo.
The kids have a choice of three puddings which include fresh fruit, ice cream and a salted caramel fudge brownie.
The adult’s menu was so tantalising that it was really hard to choose just one starter and main course so we opted to share and even then we struggled to choose. In the end, we opted for the Duck rolls and the sweetcorn fritters but if there had been more of us we would have definitely opted for the sharing platters as they allowed you to try a lot of the different starters. The sweetcorn fritters were amazing and the duck rolls worked really well with the sour orange chutney.
For the main course we were tempted by the curry goat but instead, we opted for the Brown Chicken Stew with rice and Dumplings and the Jerk ribs with sweet potato fries. The Jerk ribs were very tender and they fell away from the bone and the brown chicken stew was delicious and I could certainly have eaten more of that although as a big fan of heat and scotch bonnet peppers it could have done with a bit more spice. Luckily for me, there were four different hot sauces on the table for me to choose from to help spice it up.
