NAMII: Brunch with a Vietnamese twist!


Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Namii in Manchester, a Vietnamese fusion restaurant providing a variety of small tapas-style plates and an extensive cocktail and alcohol menu. They have also recently launched a brunch menu, serving traditional brunch dishes with an Asian twist. 

Before I rave about the brunch (which was- wow), can we just appreciate the decor?! This is easily one of the prettiest restaurants/bars in Manchester, with its neon signs, floral decor and elegant cream booths. I am obsessed.


We opted for two different dishes, one savoury and one sweet, to share so we could sample more of the menu.

First up, French Brioche Toast with maple syrup, dusted with cinnamon sugar and vanilla mascarpone cream. This was divine. The presentation was just everything and it tasted even better.

There was a great mix of sweet and sour, with the mix of fruit contrasting the sweet maple syrup and vanilla mascarpone. This was absolutely delicious and I would definitely recommend this dish.

Next up, we tried the Eggs Benedict - toasted sourdough topped with two poached eggs, avocado and streaky bacon drizzled with a wasabi hollandaise. 

I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this dish as I’m not a huge fan of spice so I didn’t know whether I’d enjoy the wasabi hollandaise sauce. I was pleasantly surprised! The subtle kick the wasabi added complemented the dish so well and I actually really enjoyed it. The eggs were cooked to perfection and I loved the addition of avocado!

This is also a must try dish if you visit Namii for brunch.

What makes brunch even better? Cocktails! 

For the first round, we opted for:
- Breakfast in Saigon: Portobello Gin, Cointreau, Cranberry Juice, Plum Marmalade
- Lychee Cloud: Danva Vodka, Lychee liqueur, Citrus 

The Lychee Cloud was such a cool cocktail! It arrived with just candy floss in the glass and the waitress pours over the cocktail, causing the candy floss to dissolve into the liquid. This was a fun experience rather than just having your drink arrive. Make sure you mix the candy floss in though as it is veryyyy sour otherwise!

Breakfast in Saigon was gorgeous- a strong cocktail with a fruity flavour!

Next up I tried the Vietnamese Garden consisting of Danva Vodka, Jasmine Verte, Citrus, Apple Juice & Basil.

This was served with dry ice and was super cool. I LOVE the presentation of this- the little teapot and cups are so cute. It also was so refreshing and literally tasted like juice- I would definitely order this again!


Namii is located at:
New York Street

Thank you so much to Namii for having me. I had the best day. The service & vibes were unmatched- I loved the live music too.

If you’re from Manchester and haven’t visited yet, you need to book in!
