The Return of Useless Japanese Gadgets at YO!

YO!‘s Chindogu Menu is back by popular demand and heading to Manchester and Glasgow

YO!  is introducing the art of Chindogu, “useless inventions”, to two new cities next week following a launch in London and Newcastle earlier this month.

If you’ve ever suffered from burning your mouth on your ramen’s steaming hot noodles, or a messy curry sauce stain down your white shirt? YO! has a useless gadget to fix that! Chindogu, the brainchild of 72-year-old Japanese inventor Kenji Kawakami, are gadgets to solve everyday issues that aren’t usually thought to be worth solving.

YO!’s limited Chindogu menu pairs each gadget with their perfect dish accompaniment to give diners a unique eating experience they never even realised they needed. Order YO!’s Dumpling Miso Ramen noodles and see how the ‘Noodle Splash Guard’ stops your luscious locks getting dipped in broth. If you’re a messy eater, look no further than the ‘Napkin Hat’ who will be your best friend at keeping curry stains at bay.

To keep your hot Spicy Seafood Udon from burning your lips, the ‘Noodle Cooler’ gadget will cool down noodles just before they reach your mouth with its electrical fan. Test out the range of YO!’s other wacky gadgets when you order from the Chindogu menu.

To experience the Japanese art of Chindogu, head to YO!’s Manchester Arndale and Glasgow Central restaurants. From Tuesday 3rd to Sunday 8th April, when you order off the Chindogu menu you’ll be served up a unique Japanese gadget invented by YO! – useful or useless… you decide!
