Many of us have noticed the pink hues of the indoor cherry blossoms while walking past Tattu on West Register Street. While Tattu is a place for ethereal décor, the restaurant’s modern Chinese-inspired seasonal menu is even better than its alluring appearance.
Tattu is a family run business that centres around creating a dining experience that indulges all the senses. The concept of connection is also a focal point for the restaurant, where food sharing with friends and family hold a special place in their hearts. Both small and large platters are created to be shared, where foodies can try a bit of everything while having a well-earned break with their loved ones.
Celebrating the soon-to-come cherry blossom season in Edinburgh, a brand new Spring / Summer seasonal menu is upon us at Tattu. The menu features some effortlessly decadent dishes, such as the delicate Tuna Sashimi Blossom with Nori, sesame, and wasabi mayo, or the Red Snapper Tom Yum, infused with lemongrass and kaffir lime. The Satay Beef Ribeye served with a papaya and tomato salad is set to be a firm favourite amongst guests, just like the existing Japanese Black Wagyu Beef.
Those not feeling like red meat can opt for the Green Pepper Lobster with Jalapeños and crispy shallots straight from the wok, offering a wholesome savoury combo. For their vegan guests, Tattu has also included a new vegan dish to their menu: the Mongolian Mock Beef, which is bursting with flavours of sesame, soy, and peppers.
And for the grand finale, the phoenix has risen from its ashes and left their (delicious) nest behind: the Phoenix Nest is served in a colourfully decorated white chocolate shell with peanut butter fudge, honeycomb and marshmallow.
What is more, after our second visit, it has once more been reiterated that Tattu Edinburgh only takes on the best of the best. The hospitality industry is not just for students who need the extra money, it’s a fulfilling career path for many. Evidently, the restaurant’s staff are extensively trained, treating customers like extended family. Perhaps, feeling seen and understood should also be included in the sensory experience list.
