Mexican Night at the Metro

Here at Harrogate College, we are very proud to boast state of the art facilities, where our students can learn in an employer friendly environment. One of these facilities is the fully equipped training restaurant, Metro, run professionally by our Catering and Hospitality students. Everything from the food preparation and cooking right up to when it arrives at your beautifully laid table, is done by our students, under the expert supervision of our industry qualified tutors.

Every month, a themed night is hosted in the Metro Restaurant, the most recent being Mexican, with a three course menu for just £12. The atmosphere, food and service all perfectly mirror those of a restaurant you would find on a Harrogate high street and at a fraction of the price.

We were shown to our table very efficiently, with Alice asking how our days had been. The restaurant was busy and had a lovely buzz to it, with background music creating a pleasant ambience.

To start, there were cheesy nachos with a deliciously spicy and fresh salsa, along with chicken Quesadillas with a homemade guacamole.

To follow, a perfectly cooked fillet of sea bass on a toasted tortilla with fresh guacamole and pickled red onion, along with a very generous portion of spicy Spanish meatballs on a bed of red rice served with sour cream. This was all dished up beautifully, along with a plate of condiments, including refried beans and salsa that certainly packed a punch.

Despite being incredibly full and satisfied, traditional hot Churros with a melted chocolate dipping sauce, were still to come.

The whole evening was fantastic and enjoyed by all. Next up is the ‘Taste of Italy’ on Thursday 21st May and you’d be mad to miss it. Book your table today by using the form below or call (01423) 878300 / 878360.
