Our brand new Manx Crab Sourdough Melt is this year’s feature on the Manx Menu!
The Manx Menu is a new initiative set by Visit Isle of Man which asks the public to vote now for your favourite local dishes as part of a new Manx Menu campaign.
The initiative highlights which hospitality businesses, like us are positively impacting the local community by using local produce.
You can vote for Cycle 360 in two categories: the ‘main’ and our ‘speciality drink’.
About our main: the Manx Coastal Crab Sourdough Melt
Our locally inspired crab sourdough melt showcases some of the finest produce the island has to offer! Each ingredient has been carefully selected to complement each other in flavour, colour and presentation whilst fitting the Cycle 360 popular brunch & lunch vibe.Featuring Okells bitter, providing a nuttiness to the melt-in-your mouth bite, and cutting through the creaminess and boldness of the Isle of Man Creamery vintage cheddar. These two ingredients are combined with the freshest white and brown crabmeat from Horne Seafood in Peel, all while being sandwiched and baked on Noa Bakehouse sourdough until golden brown.
The Manx asparagus to accompany the sourdough is slowly poached in butter and adds a freshness to the overall dish.
The sourdough crab coastal melt is accompanied by a homemade scotch egg providing texture and added taste (plus we couldn’t have make a Manx Menu dish without featuring eggs – our customer’s fave!). And finally, there’s a subtle sweetness and heat from our in-house cooked jalapeno jam, made with red mie jalapenos from Red Mie Farm in Ballaugh.
