The upmarket Chinese restaurant has unveiled some Leeds-exclusive dishes, too

The long-awaited opening of contemporary Chinese restaurant Tattu is on the horizon, and the launch date has finally been announced as Friday 9 June.

As well as this exciting development, executive chef Clifton Muil has unveiled three dishes created exclusively for the Leeds restaurant which won't be available in their current venue in Manchester.

"Yorkshire is renowned for being home to some of the finest produce in the world. We feel extremely privileged to have such an abundance of flavours now on our doorstep, so wanted to ensure we use these ingredients to create some really unique dishes " he says.

This produce includes Whitby crab, which will be used for Kimchi crab cakes, Yorkshire pork rib eye steak - served chargrilled on the bone with a local apple cider teriyaki - and slow-cooked Yorkshire beef short rib, combined with shiitake mushrooms inside buttery pastry as a dim sum dish.

The restaurant's shaping up to be a work of art that we'll treasure for the long-run, rather than a painful experience that we want covered up as quickly as possible. I guess we'll find out on June ninth.
