Tampopo opens in Wimbledon
Award-winning independent Far Eastern restaurant group, Tampopo, is opening in the heart of Wimbledon in June with a VIP launch party and soft-launch exclusives for Time & Leisure Readers.
Perfect for those seeking a delicious meal in a vibrant, upbeat setting, Tampopo will serve up a mix of traditional dishes and dishes with a twist from all across East Asia. From brunch late into the night, this 180-seater destination promises to be the newest hotspot in town.
Simply register and Tampopo will send you an invitation to the party or exclusive discounts for the opening.
Take a gastronomic tour of the region or stop for a quick bite – whether you’re in the mood for a spicy Thai curry, a comforting bowl of laksa or a selection of sumptuous small plates to share amongst friends, Tampopo has something for everyone. The impressive drinks menu is equally as enticing with a sensational list of Far Eastern sprits to sample such as soju, Mekhong, rums and gins, alongside sake and all your usual favourites.
But it’s the restaurant’s heritage and links with the Far East that are a key part of what sets it apart from other restaurants. The company has worked closely with Ana from the Lazat Cooking School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Pip from the Thai House in Bangkok to develop its menu and ensure that dishes reflect the flavours of the Far East. By bringing together the best of Far Eastern cuisine and local ingredients, expect a creative menu to delight even the most discerning of palates.
David Fox, founder of Tampopo, said: “We are thrilled to be opening our newest location in Wimbledon. With the tennis just around the corner, we can’t think of a better time to share our passion for authentic Far Eastern cuisine with the local community. We are incredibly proud of our heritage and the relationships we have built with people across the Far East, and we can’t wait to share that with our customers.”
‘Tampopo’ – actually a girl’s name in Japanese meaning ‘dandelion’ – is taken from the title of a Japanese film, a cult classic chronicling the quest for the perfect bowl of noodles by said heroine – a quest recreated by the team at Tampopo every day!
Jaw-dropping fans include… David and Victoria Beckham, who famously once bought a piece of art they spotted on the wall of their favourite branch!
And who better to deliver on this than the dream team of General Manager Stephanie and Head Chef Tam from their Fitzrovia restaurant. Together they have worked for the company for 23 years! Wimbledon is in for a real treat with the independent group’s other sites having gained a quick loyal following, and numerous accolades over the years including TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Family Friendly Venue, so get yourself registered for a gorgeous gastro experience!
