The Chinese New Year, known as The Spring Festival, or Chun Jie, has brought us the Year of the Rooster! People born under this sign are hard-working and persevere in their daily hardships, so it’s only fair that we nudge a couple of prime Chinese spots their way, so they can have a delightful meal after a hard day’s work.
Specialized in Dim Sum, but also multitasking as a cocktail bar and party venue, Fu Manchu is a unique experience that brings Chinese tapas, booze and live music to your life. Key things for happiness, really, find Nirvana eating with your hands, downing a couple of Mai Chais and dancing the night away!
Not just focused on Chinese cuisine, but more a Pan-Asian jamboree, Chi Kitchen is situated in Debenham’s at Oxford Street. Cozy and filled with the aroma of comforting congee and exciting kimchee, with a menu crafted by celebrated Masterchef champion Ping Coombes, who also hosts a breakfast club where you can learn how to cook a myriad of traditional Asian dishes, and eat them too!
Chinese Cricket Club
Covering the fiery flavours of the Sichuan region, the perhaps better known Cantonese spices and more dim sum varieties than you can possibly imagine, the Chinese Cricket Club leaves nobody unfazed! Sitting next to Blackfriars Bridge, at the Crown Plaza hotel, the venues spent at this well-known London spot are filled with traditional dishes and culinary flare. On top of that, they also host Dim Sum Masterclasses, so you can leave impressed and carry on impressing friends and family!
Wok On Fire
Got little time, you’re concerned about eating healthy and the Asian food craving is going strong? Head to Wok On Fire! Located in Soho, their priorities are: great food, great staff, fresh produce and for you to have the friendliest experience at their venue! That’s exactly what you’ll get, and what will keep you coming back for more!
Chinese Laundry Room
Have an 80s revival at this Northern Mainland Chinese spot, where you can give a rest to your usual picks and go for a Chinese brunch! There’s an emphasis on fewer known delicacies, and on taking the right amount of time preparing every dish, so you can enjoy the flavours of home-made food!
The ENTERTAINER London helps you enjoy these places in twos with our Buy One Get One Free offers! So let’s begin the year of the Rooster celebrating accordingly! 新年快乐!
