At this point, we’ve well and truly switched from cosy Autumn vibes to full-blown Christmas spirit, so whenever someone announces something remotely festive, we get pretty excited. But there’s something extra special about what Tattu Leeds has in store this winter that has us beyond excited.
Shedding novelty for something darn right beautiful, the acclaimed contemporary Chinese restaurant delivers ‘The Great Snow’ for winter 2022, an elegant dining experience that plays on the Chinese proverb “A fall of seasonable snow gives promise to a fruitful year”.
While on the menu guests will be able to indulge in an array of seasonal treats, within the venue itself, guests can awe at stunning winter scenery, consisting of icy cherry blossom trees (Tattu’s iconic feature which is usually adorned in candy pink), reflective icy interiors and even a dazzling Aurora Borealis display.
Dusted in snow and low-lit in a cool blue hue, the restaurant currently resembles China’s northernmost point, Mohe, nicknamed China’s ‘Arctic town’ – and is the perfect place to treat yourself before the year ends.
On the menu, guests will find warming dishes designed to share with loved ones – including dim sum, raw dishes, small plates, grills and seafood plus a host of vegan and vegetarian options. Catering to a range of palates, guests can expect tasty plates such as crispy shredded beef fillet, Shangai black cod, seven spiced seared tuna and Tattu’s beloved wok fired angry bird – a signature chicken dish served with roast chilli peppers and sesame honey soy.
Desserts are where things get extra showstopping, however. This winter, guests can enjoy a wintery twist on the restaurant’s cherry blossom dessert – which consists of icy blue candyfloss on a chocolate trunk, with light chocolate mousse on a bed of dried ice – which provides quite the photo opportunity as you tuck in.
If that wasn’t all, the restaurant is also serving up a fiery Mount Heng Flambe, resembling a snow-topped mountain and set alight with a spirit before eating. The show-stopper consists of baked meringue, marshmallow, coconut and winter cherries.
The Great Snow has landed at Tattu Leeds already, and you can book a table here.
