Did you know what Sakana means? It a Japanese term which refers to the practice of enjoying food with the accompaniment of alcohol. With that in mind, it is safe to say that the Peter Street establishment has been providing just that for a number of years.
Think freshly prepared sushi, Pan Asian tapas, seafood specials all served and savoured in plush modern surroundings and paired with expertly crafted cocktails. They’ve hit the nail on the head.
We love it for the sushi Mondays, the experimental and expertly crafted nigari rolls, Pan-Asian flavours and cracking drinks. Close to Deansgate, it is the ultimate place to kick off a night-out, there is nothing better than catching up with the girls over a few classic cocktails and some unbelievably good eats and perhaps some bubbles, the placement couldn’t be better. We know and love Sakana for just those reasons, but it is just about to get a whole lot better.
After months of planning, it can finally be announced that Sakana has transformed. Ocean Tr23sure, the newly relocated and beautifully renovated sister restaurant opened on the first floor at the end of last year, and has since then will join forces with Sakana to become 23 Peter Street.
Ocean Tre23sure was founded in 2009 and was originally located in Manchester’s premier casino Manchester 235 at the Great Northern Warehouse, but made the move towards the end of 2017.
With two fantastic restaurants under one roof, you will be spoilt for choice. Sakana will stick to what she knows with an eclectic range of dishes with influences all over Asia from Thailand to Korea, while Ocean Tr23sure will take on classic, authentic Chinese dishes. It is safe to say that the new 23 Peter Street promises an unforgettable culinary journey around Asia.
23 Peter Street has some pretty exciting things to come. Sushi Masterclass will run to show you to make restaurant-quality sushi from the masters at Sakana. The specialist chefs will inspire you with their passions and inspirations as they guide you through the preparation of the signature sushi rolls and sashimi dishes. You and your friends will have the opportunity to don your aprons to re-create these dishes. This will be followed with a tasting of hot and cold sakes led by a top Sommelier as you savour your very own sushi creations.
We loved the old Sakana, but we love the revamp even more and it is safe to say there are some exciting things on the way for 23 Peter Street, Sakana and Ocean Tr23sure.
The Ocean Tr23sure website will be live really soon which you can access here… so keep your eyes peeled for the merge.
