What if you could choose exactly what goes in your noodle bowl, completely mix and match, up to you? Well, Mr Su to the rescue, because this Chinese restaurant with a difference has taken Manchester by storm, bringing traditional Chinese dumplings and noodles to Circle Square on Oxford Road.
The new restaurant features a pick-your-own toppings station where customers can help themselves to a range of traditional and more localised toppings from veg and chicken to prawns and beef. Then, customers simply take their toppings to the counter and they’ll be made up into a mouth-watering bowl of noodles.
The menu at Mr Su is extensive, with multiple variations of what it does best, noodles and dumplings all at reasonable prices.
The menu also features speciality made-on-site dumplings filled with a variety of ingredients including lamb and Chinese leaves, a tempting snack with six costing just £3.90; £7.50 for 12; and if you’re feeling particularly hungry, 18 and 24 to share with friends or simply devour by yourself, setting you back just £10.90 or £13.90 respectively. Yep, 24 dumplings for under £14!
Chicken and duck street noodles are just £9.90, and if you want something a little less meat-heavy, mixed veg noodles will cost just £8.60. All noodles have a choice of broths; normal, tomato, seafood, spicy or pickled – yum!
Founded by Jimmy Su, who has over 25 years of experience working in top restaurants in Dubai, China and the UK, Mr Su promises high-quality and unique noodles prepared in-house. Jimmy’s vast experience in the kitchen has allowed him to create unique and secret recipes for broths, noodles and dumplings.
Ahead of the grand opening in May, Jimmy said: “We’re all about great tasting, good-quality homemade noodles and dumplings accessible to everyone which is reflected in our price – traditional Chinese food isn’t meant to break the bank, and we’re incredibly excited to open in Manchester building upon the success of our Leeds store.”
