A stone’s throw away from Little Mule Café is Captains of Industry and just down the other alley way is Manchester Press. Fair to say, that this little alleyway eatery has some stiff competition.
So how do they try and stand out? Well…by not doing much at all, literally. Bare essentials – perfectly describe the interior of the Little Mule Café.
Like many other before it, the Little Mule Café décor is very industrial. It feels familiar. You’ve seen this before. It has been replicated over and over again. I can’t help but feel that this is the mood the Little Mule Café wants to exude. You’ve tried all the crazy, now come back to what you know.
Tuna & Wild Rice Salad: Tuna & Cherry Tomatoes, Roasted Peppers, Rocket & lemons $12
“Tuna and Wild Rice Salad please blow me away” – I quietly thought to myself. It arrived in front of me and I instantly dismissed it as something I could have made at home. I took my first bite and my dismissive judgements were confirmed. I wasn’t upset but damn this was a let down.
Chicken Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo Beetroot Relish, Avocado & Rocket $10
Though I am not quite the fan of sourdough when it is toasted, this sandwich was quite delightful. As a chicken sandwich is usually quite dry, the textures from the chipotle mayo, beetroot relish and avocado made every mouthful ever so delicious.
