This Northern Quarter Restaurant Is Serving Up Trolleys Full Of Bao Buns & Dumplings Every Weekend

By Laura Rogan

My kinda Sunday lunch.

Dig out your stretchy pants for this one, Mancs, because the Northern Quarter’s Cottonopolis has introduced its weekly street food event – taking place every single Sunday.

Previously known as ‘Dim Sum and Then Some’, guests are invited to fill up on 16 plates of Yatai street food, which is brought around the restaurant on a trolley for diners to help themselves to at their table. Choose from an ever-rotating trolley of small plates served in gorgeous bamboo baskets, with each week offering a new variety of Asian dishes to try out.

Running multiple sessions every Sunday, the new two-hour dining experience is the perfect alternative to the traditional roast – providing a stunning sociable space to enjoy over dishes such as bao buns, dumplings, sushi, robata grilled meats and so much more.


The whole affair comes in pretty cheap too, with each sitting costing just £30pp for a whole lotta Asian cuisine. Not only that, but the event features dessert dishes as well, so once you’ve satisfied your savoury cravings, you can finish off your meal with something sweet.
