This Yorkshire restaurant has turned into a winter wonderland with the Northern Lights

At this point, we’ve well and truly gone from cozy fall moods to full fledged moods. Christmas spirit, so whenever someone announces something festive from a distance, we get super excited. But there’s something special about what Tatu Leeds has in store this winter that has us beyond excited.

Shedding novelty for something damn beautiful, the acclaimed contemporary Chinese restaurant is bringing “The Great Snow” for winter 2022, a stylish dining experience that plays on the Chinese proverb “A seasonal snowfall promises a fruitful year.”

While on the menu, guests will be able to indulge in a range of seasonal treats, in the venue itself, guests can take in stunning wintry landscapes, comprised of icy cherry blossoms (the signature element of Tattu that is usually adorned in candy pink), reflective icy interiors and even a dazzling display of the Northern Lights.

Dusted with snow and dimly lit in a cool blue hue, the restaurant currently resembles China’s northernmost point, Mohe, dubbed China’s ‘Arctic City’ – and is the perfect place to treat yourself before the end of the year.

On the menu, diners will find hearty dishes designed to be shared with loved ones – including dim sum, raw fare, small plates, grill and seafood along with a host of vegan and vegetarian options. Catering to a range of palates, diners can expect savory plates such as crispy shredded beef tenderloin, Shanghai black cod, seared tuna with seven spices and baked angry bird. Tattu’s beloved wok – a signature chicken dish served with roasted red chili peppers and sesame honey soy.

The desserts, however, are where things get even more spectacular. This winter, diners can enjoy a wintry twist on the restaurant’s cherry blossom dessert – which consists of glazed blue cotton candy on a chocolate trunk, with light chocolate mousse on a bed of dried ice – which offers plenty of opportunity to take photos while you’re driving home.

If that was not all, the restaurant also serves a flaming Mont Heng Flambe, resembling a snow-capped mountain set on fire with a spirit before eating. The show-stop consists of baked meringue, marshmallow, coconut and winter cherries.
