Jillian is still visiting, so today we had another day out, this time to The Trafford Centre, which is not only easily accessible within 15 minutes from home off the M60, but also from the banks of The Bridgewater Canal.....
(Trafford Centre Information)
The luxurious interior is split into themed areas depicting locations around the world. This is the entrance to "New Orleans".
Pesto, Trafford Centre an Italian themed tapas restaurant. A special lunch menu is served at £6.95pp which allows any three dishes from the menu each - plenty for a lunchtime meal. I chose spaghetti bolognais, meat balls, and fried potatoes with a tomato and basil relish. The others chose ciabatta with cheese, garlic mushrooms, and tagliatelle with a creamy white wine and mushroom sauce, bruschetta with tomato, a small Marguerite pizza and arancini with saffron risotto balls with mozzarella cheese. The dishes were small tapas size, and we all shared - very pleasant too!
A great time was had by all - even me, who chose to sit on the benches provided outside each store, so I could watch the world go by, as the women were doing what they do best!
Next time you find yourself in the area, maybe on the Bridgewater Canal, drop in, if you have never been before, it is quite an experience.
