Fancy an afternoon tea with a Japanese flavour?

There’s an Oriental twist to the latest afternoon tea launched in Birmingam.

YO! Sushi has introduced its own special menu in Selfridges Birmingham for the festive season.

Exclusive to Selfridges, afternoon tea for two combines the elegance of the tradition with Japanese omakase dining.

It feature tempura nori nachos, which are crispy tempura nori shells filled with avocado, salmon or tuna.

Diners can also enjoy festive onigiri sushi balls, a selection of aburi seared sushi, special Christmas sashimi and delicious desserts.

They can quaff a 375ml bottle of French Palmer & Co brut reserve Champagne, a 300ml bottle of Kizakura Piano sparkling sake or a pot of jasmine needle tea.

Meanwhile, YO! Sushi has also launched its new menu with 83 dishes, 26 of which are vegetarian and 16 vegan.

The launch of afternoon tea and the new menu comes as YO! Sushi prepares to move to a new space in Selfridges’ food hall this January.

It is opening an upgraded restaurant space on the left side of the eft side of the Bullring department store with an even larger high-tech sushi conveyor belt.

Afternoon tea costs £25 per person with jasmine needle tea, £30 per person for the tea with sparkling sake and £35 per person for the Champagne version.
