CHESHIRE: Savages Mussels onto Macc food scene as number one seafood hotspot!
Nestled in the epicentre of the Macclesfield food scene, Savages Mussels has taken up residency at the Picturedrome. The Picturedrome is a relatively new addition to Macc by the creators of Altrincham Market and Manchester’s own Mackie Mayor.
Savages Mussels has already gone off to a flying start, with a strong social media following which has already achieved cult status amongst the local foodies.
With a unique menu consisting of – you guessed it – mussels! Savages have reinvented the humble mussel into familiar dishes with a unique twist.
From the classic garlic mussels dish to the popular mussels burger, this place really is a seafood lovers dream. News of this great little place didn’t take long to reach our ears, and we simply had to head over there to find out for ourselves (and all our VIVA readers) what the fuss was all about.
Recently, Savages has been honing their skills and have recently created a culinary masterpiece for 2020, their fish pie with a twist. A classic creamy filling packed with mussels (obvs) and fish topped with a purple potato foam and edible flowers, an Instagram lover’s dream!
This was a dish we simply had to try. We were at first blown away by the presentation and the bold colours that surrounded the dish. As pretty a dish as this is, that is not the part that really blew our minds. Instead it was the intense richness of the creamy filling which balanced so perfectly with the light potato foam.
The taste of this dish far surpassed the looks, and that is saying something! The dish is just as gorgeous in real life as it is in photos. So whether you are wanting to order this dish for the gram or just wanting to try some seriously good food, make sure you get yourselves down to the Picturedrome in Macclesfield. You will not be disappointed!
VIVA Verdict: 10/10 from us! From looks to taste this fish pie gave us everything we needed and more! The perfect winter warmer which looks almost too good to eat.
