Exciting news! Yuup is almost ready to launch in Birmingham!
It’s been a few months since we announced our upcoming launch in Birmingham, and we could not be happier with the diverse range of unique businesses we have partnered with so far.
Birmingham is a city bursting at the seams with creative people and independents, all itching to share their passions. From the vibrant and buzzing streets of Digbeth to the historic Jewellery Quarter, it’s been an absolute pleasure discovering the thriving creative scene that Birmingham has to offer.
Our team have been busy searching out some of the city’s most exciting businesses to partner with. We’ve also welcomed two full-time Birmingham team members Kiran and Esther, who have been hard at work setting the wheels in motion with many dedicated and talented local champions.
To celebrate our upcoming launch, we’re bringing you a sneak peek into what Yuup and the Yuup hosts in your city have been cooking up!
Stay tuned… something extra special is about to be revealed.

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of perfectly sizzling prawns filling the air with mouth-watering aromas of lemongrass, ginger and coconut.
Tina is the culinary genius behind My Exotic Chef, the Birmingham business bringing South-Asian cuisine to the Midlands. As a child, Tina grew up in the small Indonesian town of Sumedang. Nestled in the lush rice paddies, she would spend her days helping her mum prepare and sell homemade meals to surrounding villages. Now she’s using this experience to teach people how to cook delicious food her mum would be proud of.
