Review on Tattu Leeds
Riding high on the success of their modern Chinese restaurant in Manchester, the Jones brothers have headed to Leeds in West Yorkshire for their second outpost of Tattu. Located in the heart of the city in Minerva House, part of the Bond Court redevelopment on East Parade, the 180-cover restaurant is set over two floors. The name Tattu was derived from a combination of the word tattoo, the art form that inspired their interiors and tatau, an ancient word from eastern culture that means to make a mark. Like its sibling the interiors have a lavish décor with their trademark design of a stunning cherry blossom installation, this time in white as a nod to the Yorkshire white rose emblem.
The menus have been designed by Executive Chef Clifton Muil, who fuses traditional flavours with modern cooking techniques, sending out vibrant and flavoursome dishes. Witness dim sum in the shape of beef and foie gras gyoza with teriyaki and soy or black cod parcels with spinach, candied orange and orange ponzu. Other culinary delights on the menu are red pepper lamb chops with hot and sour pumpkin or from the sea Thai style crispy monkfish, lime, shallots and lemongrass. As for desserts there's white chocolate and citrus cheesecake with lime, matcha and strawberry or a lovely cherry blossom, chocolate mousse, cherry and candyfloss.
The wine list has been carefully compiled to complement the flavours of the dishes and there's also zingy signature cocktails.
