VICTOR and Vinny Yu, the brothers behind the award-winning Yu Chinese restaurant in Alderley Edge, are set to launch a new express food bar fusing the best flavours and ingredients from the Far East in Manchester city centre this summer.
Taberu, which is Japanese for eat, will open on King Street, serving a range of Far Eastern street food, specialising in bao, steamed buns, with diners able to choose their meat, vegetables and sauce to accompany their bao. There will also be a selection of noodles, fresh salads, snacks and Far Eastern drinks, from smoothies through to a vast array of Chinese teas.
There will be a small number of tables for people to eat in, with the main focus on takeaway.
With aspirations to launch Taberu nationally, the Yu brothers plan to open three sites in Manchester before expanding across the country.
Victor Yu, exec chef and co-owner at Yu, has spent several months in Hong Kong over the course of 2016, developing the menu for Taberu and is confident this healthy, fast food, will be a big hit.
“We’re incredibly excited about opening Taberu,” said Victor. “Yu in Alderley Edge has been open for over a year now and we felt the time was right to explore a different concept, which will focus mainly on lunchtime trade.
“The site on King Street was exactly what we were looking for and our menu, which we’ve worked on with a number of excellent chefs, has a good variety of healthy, affordable options that offer something different to the normal sandwich people are keen to get away from.”
