Award winning Ribble Valley restaurant Yu Copster Green is launching a new takeaway service, Yu Express. Yu Express will feature a range of vegan and vegetarian dishes along with traditional favourites and even a kid friendly Bento Box.

Yu Express aims to take the Chinese Takeaway to the next level with fresh locally sourced ingredients, cooked at a restaurant quality standard.

The brain child of executive chef Victor Yu, Yu Express has been designed to disrupt the Chinese takeaway industry and revolutionise the way we view Chinese food.

Victor Yu is the chef behind Cheshire hot spot Yu Alderley Edge, an exclusive restaurant in the heart of Alderley Edge, and the winners of the 2018 Golden Chopsticks Award. Yu Alderley Edge boasts a huge Celebrity following with stars flocking from far and wide to sample their unique menu.

Speaking of Yu Express, Victor Yu says “Chinese takeaways have always had a bad reputation for serving unhealthy, MSG filled food. I want to change that perception and show people that Chinese food does not have to be like that. We want to offer something different. By sticking to our Chinese roots and serving traditional Chinese dishes with ingredients sourced locally from suppliers such as Hodgsons Fish, we can ensure only the best ingredients go into our cooking, and that all dishes are cooked to the highest quality FSA standards.”

Victor has developed a special menu that will feature a range of Gluten and Dairy Free dishes such as Stir-Fried Tofu, Sugar Snaps & Vegetables in Oyster Sauce and Chicken Soya Fried Rice.

There will also be a range of vegan friendly dishes from Vegetable Gyozas to Spicy Singapore Vermicelli with Beansprouts, Shittake Mushrooms and Mangetout.

Traditional Chinese dishes will also feature heavily on the new Yu Express menu. Favourites such as Sweet & Sour, Classic Hong Kong Satay along with Charlie Yu’s Famous Curry will be available.

Catering to all needs, Victor has even created a special children’s menu. The Children’s Chinese Bento Box comes with a choice of main course. From Sweet & Sour Chicken Nuggets with noodles or rice to Hawaiian Fried Rice each course is served with a selection of vegetables, prawn crackers and a fortune cookie.

Yu Express will launch at Yu Copster Green at the end of June.
