Tampopo – Manchester’s original independent Pan-Asian restaurant – added a secret dish to its menu this summer that is only available to those who know what to ask for.

The AFC Burger, also known as the Asian Fried Chicken Burger, is brand new in Tampopo’s restaurants from Monday 5th July. However, the delicious dish does not appear on the physical menu and can therefore only be ordered “secretly” on request for connoisseurs.

The AFC burger consists of a fried chicken thigh with seven spices, BBQ sauce, lettuce and Asian coleslaw in a super soft bun and is a must for gourmets everywhere. However, this top-secret item will only be available for a limited time this summer, so anyone passionate about fried chicken should act quickly to avoid missing out on this taste sensation.

For those who cannot dine in the restaurant, the AFC Burger will also be available on all Tampopo sites on Click & Collect orders.

While the AFC burger will only be available to connoisseurs in Tampopo restaurants, the dish can currently also be ordered in the takeaway app Deliveroo, where the secret menu item has proven to be a certified hit with guests at home.

The AFC Burger is part of Tampopo’s new Asian Fried Chicken menu, which was launched exclusively online with Deliveroo during the lockdown. Fully curated in a dark kitchen, Tampopo’s Asian Fried Chicken has become a cult classic with take-away and fast-food fans alike, garnering hundreds of five-star ratings just a year after it was launched. The AFC burger will be the first in the Asian fried chicken range available in Tampopo restaurants.

All dishes on the AFC menu are made with chicken thighs, which are known to be tastier and less prone to drying out than chicken breasts, making each burger bite juicier than the last. Other Asian Fried Chicken Burgers currently available at Deliveroo are the Katsu Burger served with spicy Katsu sauce and the Satay Burger with authentic Indonesian sweet sauce.

The AFC Burger can currently be ordered via Deliveroo and Click & Collect and will be available from Monday, July 5th for a limited time throughout the summer in all Tampopo restaurants.
