Ning Expands To York With Musa Magic

Manchester restaurant ministers to the Minster city

Published on April 23rd 2013.

Ning Expands To York With Musa Magic

YORK has gained a Ning and now a Malaysian High Tea.

Ning first opened in Manchester in the rather different surroundings of Oldham Street but has now conquered the county town over the Pennines packed with tourists visiting the heritage sites. 

With Yorkies and visitors alike enjoying the heritage of the city, I thought it would be a great fit. 

Debuting on Saturday 20 April, celebrity Malaysian chef Norman Musa’s Ning restaurant in Tower Street will be serving a three tier afternoon menu.

The selection of Malaysian and fusion sweet and savoury cakes and snacks will be available Saturday and Sunday afternoons, as part of the restaurant’s new extended weekend opening hours.

All handmade on the premises, the new menu forms part of a new drive by the entrepreneurial chef-restaurateur to introduce Malaysian food to a wider audience.Ning High Tea Menu

Complete with a pot of leaf tea imported from Malaysia, the Malaysian High Tea will feature a selection of mini cakes such as Chef Norman’s moist chocolate cake with cardamom and pistachio cream layers, and Malaysian sweets such as 'Seri Muka' (a sweet, colourful layered dessert of glutinous coconut rice and pandan custard).

Queen of the savoury snack will be Malaysia’s signature coconut rice with chilli 'sambal' and condiments. Then there's 'Nasi Lemak', wrapped in a banana leaf like a pyramid and 'Karipap', a kind of mini Malaysian pasty (often known as curry puff) with a delicately spiced vegetable filling and crunchy handmade crimped pastry will also feature as a regular item.

Chef Norman commented, “I tested this out on my Manchester guests on Mother’s Day and they  loved it. I came up with the idea while on my recent road trip around Malaysia. It conjures up the colonial Eastern & Oriental Hotel in my hometown of Penang or Raffles Hotel in Singapore. With Yorkies and visitors alike enjoying the heritage of the city, I thought it would be a great fit.

The High Tea, with an introductory price of £22.50 for two people, will also sit alongside a brand-new lunch menu that Chef Norman is calling his Malaysian Bistro Menu.

The aim is to provide top quality Malaysian food, mixed with light fusion options such as a lightlyspiced take on fish and chips, that will appeal to both those looking for an authentic Malaysian meal while visiting York city centre, as well as guests unfamiliar with the cuisine who want an alternative introduction to the food.
