Contemporary Chinese restaurant Tattu is calling time on those January blues with a host of special events lined up for February from Valentine’s Day through to a week-long celebration for Chinese New Year. 

Valentine's Day

On Sunday 11th February Tattu Manchester is hosting a special Valentine’s Screenings event in The Parlour, featuring three romantic films each paired with a three-course menu and Love Potion sharing cocktail. Screenings begin at 3pm with the romantic comedy 50 First Dates, followed by The Notebook at 6pm, concluding with Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo & Juliet at 9pm. Tickets priced £35 per person and must be booked in advance. Call 0161 819 2060 to book.

For the lovers, Tattu’s Valentine’s Day menu has been inspired by three romantic tales from Chinese folklore. A decadent three-course sharing menu is available all day on Wednesday 14th February featuring dishes such as chicken Xiao Long Bao filled with red Thai curry, shallots and coconut, a honey-soy ribeye with sesame and truffle mushroom and sweet mango chicken served with pineapple and yellow bean. Priced £50 per person including a ‘Love Potion’ sharing cocktail for two. £10 deposit required per person. 

Journey Through China

On Thursday 15th February, Tattu will be hosting a new monthly dining concept inspired by four regions of China. Beginning with the Guangdong province and its traditional Cantonese cuisine, the events will travel north west to Szechuan, returning eastwards to Anhui and ending the journey in the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai.

With a three-course sharing menu for each dining experience created by head chef Jon Green, guests will be guided on a tour of the most influential culinary regions that have shaped many of the dishes that have become synonymous with Chinese cuisine around the world. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite.

Chinese New Year

Dishes include truffle egg roll with truffled soy, cucumber and aioli, fillet steak with shiitake noodles and a fiery Szechuan sea bass with chilli, Shaoxing wine and garlic. The dessert is a gift of oranges with a zesty orange trifle, chocolate and orange truffle and a refreshing orange sorbet. Priced £50 per person and available for parties of two –
