Wu Restaurant is located at 4410 N Florida Ave. in a shared building with Gabby Duncan’s popular bakery pop-up, adjacent to other Seminole Heights concepts like Chanko, The Lab and Florida Avenue Brewing Co.
The newly-opened eatery has fenced-in, outdoor-only seating filled with bright neon signs, kid-friendly turf and and a food truck dishing out bao buns, chicken sandwiches, rice bowls and variety of boba teas that range from matcha and Thai tea to green and black teas topped with salted cheese foam and boba.
Vegetarian and vegan-friendly options include a fried mushroom sandwich, bao buns, or rice mushroom bowl topped coleslaw, pickled cucumbers, radishes and kimchi.
While Wu's menu is still limited in its soft opening phase, the new Seminole Heights spot will soon serve weekend brunch items like breakfast baos, ube-flavored French toast using Cuban bread, chicken and waffles and the “Flaming Pig and Chick” bagel sandwich complete with cream cheese, flaming Hot Cheetos, spam and eggs.
Owners Jose Fradera and Anya Obringe told local blog WhatNowTampa that their new "Asian-Latin-inspired comfort food concept" will eventually sell beer and wine in addition to its variety of boba teas. Wu’s website states that it will soon serve approachable cocktails like a cucumber gimlet, coconut mojito and a mimosa flight.
Wu Restaurant is now open from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday and is closed Mondays.
