The Asian Restaurants Everyone In London Is Raving About
London’s Best Chinese Restaurants | 32 Cracking Chinese Restaurants
Preserved duck egg with marinated tofu, chill and soy is typical, as is poached razor clam with sea cucumber, vinegar tapioca and wind-dried sausage. Enjoy at your leisure. A world-famous Taiwanese restaurant with an outpost in Covent Garden, Din Tai Fung is known for its street food small plates and signature xiao long bao soup dumplings. These delicate steamed parcels come served in bamboo baskets and filled with the likes of spicy pork, chilli crab and soft prawn. Something a bit different, this family-run restaurant specialises in Uyghur cuisine — a fusion of Chinese, Middle Eastern and Persian influences developed by ethnic groups around the Silk Road. Traditional dishes such as ox tongue in chilli and vinegar or herb-marinated lamb hoof with peppers are great value — and a world away from sweet-and-sour. Everyone is here for plates of these chunky specialities on rice, although the page menu is full of possibilities.
