Last weekend I ventured out of Northampton for a girlie lunching and shopping trip in Manchester with my friend Claire.
After seeing many cool snaps of the new Tattu Restaurant in Spinningfields on Instagram, we just had to see what all the fuss was about! It sounds silly, but I was as equally excited about seeing the amazing decor inside the restaurant as I was about tasting the food, but as it happened both the venue and the tasty dim sum did not disappoint. The artificial blossom tree in the centre of the restaurant is a complete show stopper and I can't wait to visit again in the evening when it's all lit up and looking even more pretty.
It had been a crazy week at work for the both of us so we started the meal off the right way with a chilled bottle of Rose followed by six dim sum dishes (3 each) from a specials menu.
We tasted the following dishes;
Crispy Duck Rolls with a Yuzu Plum Sauce
Lobster and Prawn Toast with Sweet Chilli Sauce
Venison Wan Ton with Raspberry Maple and Soy
Duck and Watermelon Salad with cashew nuts,spring onion,coriander and Mint
Baby back Satay Ribs with Peanuts and Coconut
Duck Egg and Sausage Fried Rice (This was just a side order but it tasted insanely good, we could definitely have managed a double portion!)
The portion size for each was just right and we left feeling as though we wanted to book in again very soon! The staff were really welcoming and friendly throughout our dining experience and the decor and tattoo theme running throughout the restaurant definitely makes this restaurant a must-see!
I hope you've enjoyed my review and thank you for reading!
