Its been a while since I last blogged, this has no reflection on my passion for what we do, it is a little the other way, been a bit over busy.
Due to a change in circumstances our culinary birthplace has boomeranged back towards us and we have decided rather than to change its use that we would keep it in the World of catering and open a brand new experience for locals of our area and tourists to enjoy, whilst also working towards our aim of giving secure employment to local people year round.
The concept FatBelly Yoshi is built around our family (co workers included) passion for everything Craft Beer and Asian cuisine, simply put we are disciples of each and this is always evident at The Cottage Inn, also home to our head Chef and Brewer.
FatBelly Yoshi will work together with The Cottage Inn promote their combined loves.
Yoshi the concept
Something I have touched on before is the difference in culture between eating in Asia and Dining here in the UK, Many meals have I enjoyed with our Asian family that maybe we couldn't of here, simply due to the expectation of structure and restaurant etiquette.
Yoshi is a concept of enjoying freshly prepared Asian fusion food and Worldwide Craft Drinks in an environment with the barriers of modern expectation lowered, customers and our working family are friends alike, food arrives with a disregard of course, the emphasis is on its heat and freshness, not its timing, your wonderfully fresh food accompanies your evening with friends and doesn't steal the centre stage, just talk.
Yoshi also removes barriers in our kitchens and makes things a little more interesting, Yoshi does not commit its soul to any cuisine in particular, that simply wouldn't be Yoshi.
Head Chef Nartnapa will be teaching skills to cook perfect dishes from her Kitchen at The Cottage, you can be guaranteed a beautifully prepared meal, cooked and served by local people who care.
So where will the Journey of Yoshi start with regards to food ?
Our Menu is all set, here are some of the Headliners.
Yoshi Ramen Noodles
A bowl of hand made Noodles served in a flavoured broth and topped with slices of your chosen meat / other, a Japanese dish by origin.
Donburi (丼, literally "bowl", also frequently abbreviated as "don", less commonly spelled "domburi") is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi.
Our very own menu of small Asian dishes to accompany your meal, or become your full meal
Asian Inspired Pizza
Why not, something that proves popular for Head Chef Nartnapa, a small selection.
How about the Drinkies ?
Of course FatBelly brewery will provide the backbone of the beer selection with some wonderful beers but we will also be outsourcing some additional interesting beers from around the UK for you to enjoy with your meal.
Our emphasis is on Artisanal products so look forward to something new.
We look forward to welcoming you into FatBelly Yoshi and hope you will support us with the same energy shown at The Cottage Inn throughout the last few years.
