Victor and Vinny Yu, the brothers behind the award-winning Yu in Alderley Edge, are set to open a new express food bar on King Street this summer.
Taberu, which is Japanese for eat, will serve a range of Far Eastern street food, specialising in bao – steamed buns – with diners able to choose their meat, vegetables and sauce to accompany them.
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 but the main focus will be on take away.
Executive chef and co-owner Victor Yu spent several months in Hong Kong last year 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.”
The Yu brothers plan to open three sites in Manchester before expanding across the country.
