For two days only, you can celebrate the Jubilee with a themed ‘Afternoon Jubi-Chi’.
Having been highly recommended by the Sunday Times, we’re convinced that Mans Market has received nothing but glowing reviews since its opening, but it’s their Afternoon Chi concept that’s got us talking non-stop about dim sum in 2022.
Now bringing their unique concept to the Jubilee weekend, the popular restaurant will host a special Jubilee weekend afternoon tea, aptly named ‘Jubi-Chi’.
Based on the traditional afternoon tea, Mans Market have replaced those boring finger sandwiches and petit fours with all your favourite dishes to create the ultimate afternoon experience- a true fitting fusion cuisine for the royal ocassion.
In classic Mans Market style, the menu is there to guide guests through the choices they make before you clip your ‘Feed Me’ sign to the rope on the ceiling to get the waitress’ attention.
Aware that the way to people’s hearts (and stomachs) is to give us our favourite foods, every dish on the menu comes with a multiple choice of toppings. Guests are invited to choose a bao bun- with crispy roast duck or Panko tofu, before selecting from four different dim sum options.
Vegan-friendly Bamboo Dumplings, each swirled and dunked into sweet chilli or soy sauce before making your way onto vegan spring rolls and snack on Lotus Crisps with chilli and spring onions. This really is the epitome of a unique afternoon tea, perfect for all Chinese food connoisseurs and those that love a bit of dim sum after a few drinks with respective interest.
Desserts are even included as part of the package- there’s Matcha Moochi with strawberries, Yuzu and Vanilla cheesecake or a vegan-friendly brownie to choose from- each of which come as highly recommended as the next.
If you’re still hungry, extra dim sum is available for just £3.50 extra, this time replacing dumplings with Salt and Pepper Chicken or Tofu, Satay Chicken dishes or four more Chef Mans Spring Rolls.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed into the underground restaurant with a glass of fizz, but have plenty of chances to grab cocktails galore during their stay. Think signature boozy mizes like Mans 75, made up of Tanqueray London Dry, Lychee, Lemon and Prosecco or even grab a Bubblegum Daiquiri just an extra fiver.
If that’s not enough, you can turn your Afternoon Jubi-Chi into a bottomless experience with free-flowing fizz, bellinis or cans of Asahi for an additional price.
But if you don’t fancy getting boozy in the afternoon, there are loads of non-alcoholic options for you to choose from too. Not only can you get three varieties of tea: Yorkshire (obviously), Jasmine or green tea, but there’s soft drinks and a whole range of mocktails on offer too.
Whilst this might just be one of the plentiful afternoon tea offerings in Leeds over the bank holiday weekend, you can bet that you’re unlikely to find anything quite like this.
The Afternoon Jubi-Chi at Mans Market will be available Thursday 2 June – Friday 3 June 2022, 2-5pm but those seeking an afternoon tea experience outside of the Jubilee bank holiday can grab their seat at the table every Wednesday – Friday at the same times.
