Summer dishes at Canto

We’re thrilled to unveil our new summer menu. You’ll find it reflects the warmth and brightness of summer by being fresh, seasonal and light. Head Chef Carlos Gomes has crafted a range of tapas dishes calling on all his influences to bring summer to your table… no matter what the Mancunian weather brings!

Want to evoke the flavours and feelings of a holiday by the Med? You’ve got to try the grilled sea bream with basil and Manchego risotto. Everyone was fighting over the grilled chorizo, roasted potatoes & piquillo pepper purée during our trials. For the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine, order a plate of the gloriously-rich 18 month cured Ibérico ham shoulder.

Fancy adding a little spice to your order? Then chargrilled pork skewers, harissa spiced hummus & chimichurri is your thing. Or savour the flavours of polenta, spinach, poached egg & Manchego cheese.

We can never get enough veg in our lives, and customers love how Carlos can elevate a simple vegetable to new levels. After you’ve tasted the green beans with sugared almonds, garlic & paprika you’ll feel the same way! There are five new veggie dishes (including three vegan). Be sure to check out new classics like the burrata with confit tomatoes, basil & crostini; the aubergine, red pepper & tomato flatbread with caramelised onions. And try not to lick your fingers after eating the vegetable tempura with orange sweet and sour sauce!

Finally, we’ve listened again to customer feedback. Group diners can enjoy our popular 3 for £15 deal too! Choose 3 dishes for just £15 (Wed-Sat before 7pm and all day Sunday) from marked dishes on the menu. Ideal for a relaxed business lunch or a meal after leaving work.
