A new Japanese dessert house has opened at Circle Square selling matcha cheesecakes and sundaes

This will be the second Manchester site for much loved Japanese tea house, Tsujiri

After the success of its Chinatown venue, Japanese dessert house Tsujiri has opened a second Manchester site at Circle Square.

Accessible from Oxford Road and situated under Vita Living North, Tsujiri offers a range of Japanese desserts along with a variety of its famous bright and colourful layered teas.

Tsujiri’s traditional Japanese dessert menu includes matcha flavoured soft serve ice creams and sundaes, as well as the increasingly popular matcha Basque cheesecake. The distinctive green matcha powder that Tsujiri uses to flavour and colour its drinks and desserts is sourced directly from the company’s home city of Kyoto.

They use this vibrant green matcha in soft serves, teas and cakes, and also sell bags of matcha for customers to enjoy at home.

Tsujiri have two cafes in London: one in Chinatown and another in Camden as well as branches in Liverpool and Newcastle. They also sell matcha powder, tea leaves and accessories via their online shop.

“We are excited to open our second site in Manchester, we love the Japanese dessert culture and it is becoming an increasingly popular offering across the city, so can’t wait to welcome people in to try it out,” says Nicholas Moo, Co-Owner of Tsujiri.

“The location at Circle Square is perfect, because not only does it have a thriving community with its residents and office workers but it is situated very close to the University, meaning the site has a naturally high footfall and we can’t wait for people to come in and try it.”

Manchester’s vibrant new neighbourhood Circle Square has seen a number of new openings over the last couple of months including Canvas, Tahi, Hello Oriental, and Bird of Prey.

The new Tsujiri site is open from 12pm-9.30pm daily.
