A sweeping of snow has been forecast for Manchester this winter but it seems only one location has been announced so far… This winter, snowfall will dust the oriental paradise of Tattu in Spinningfields and the restaurant’s cherry blossoms will shimmer and sparkle alongside projections of the artic sky on the walls to create an immersive dining experience known as The Great Snow this festive season. And of course, there will be a winter-themed feast to accompany the magic.
Reflecting the Chinese proverb ‘a fall of snow gives promise to a fruitful year’, the breath-taking restaurant will be artfully created into a snow-dusted delight. From this November, Tattu will be bringing winter to Manchester minus the drop in temperature and allowing guests to step into an enchanted winter scene and be transported to China’s northernmost point, Mohe, nicknamed China’s ‘Arctic town’.
Snowfall will dust the landscape and Tattu’s iconic cherry blossom trees will turn icy blue, adorned with frost to make them shimmer and sparkle as you dine. And since we can’t see the Northern Lights in Manchester, Tattu is bringing them to diners. Be fully immersed by the Northern Lights as you enjoy a delicious meal, as the restaurant’s wall art comes to life with a dazzling show of The Aurora Borealis.
Adding to all the wintery magic, Tattu will be serving elevated modern-Chinese dishes, artfully curated limited-edition Aurora Borealis cocktails and showstopping snow-scaped desserts, to create a truly memorable dining experience. Taking centre stage, the Aurora cocktail is cleverly crafted to reflect a luminous night’s sky and features a blend of Grey Goose vodka, white chocolate and sparkling cherry, plus served in an elegant closh which, when lifted, reveals a wintery nutmeg aroma.
Desserts will also be given an icy twist. The Frozen Cherry Blossom dessert has been beautifully reimagined to reflect the Great Snow- topped with icy blue candyfloss, balanced on a delicate chocolate trunk, the dessert is grounded in a light chocolate mousse and is presented on a bed of dried ice which cascades over the table as you dine. And available exclusively during the winter period, the limited edition Mount Heng Flambe is an indulgent baked Alaska with Maraschino Cherry, Hazelnuts, Coconut and Meringue beautifully formed to resemble China’s famous Mount Heng.
Tattu’s recently launched autumn-winter menu offers something for every palette. Standouts include crispy shredded beef fillet, Shanghai black cod, seven spiced seared tuna and, of course, Tattu classic, wok-fired angry bird – a signature chicken dish served with roast chilli peppers and sesame honey soy.
Tattu will also host a brunch event on New Year’s Day, from 12pm-3pm, to ring in 2023 which includes chicken xiao long bao (soup dumplings), aromatic crispy duck with pancakes, crispy shredded fillet beef. You can also enjoy add-ons like waygu dumplings and chicken truffle shumai to really start the new year as you mean to go on. Plus, you can make it a bottomless brunch with option of free-flowing cocktails, Champagne or non-alcoholic tipples.
