London is synonymous with good food, and where the Chinese community is concerned, roast ducks are a must when in the British city.
Sure, there are many upmarket Chinese restaurants serving exquisite Chinese cuisine and dimsum, but most would agree that when in London, nothing beats the comfort of a plate of roast duck and a bowl of egg fried rice in a relatively old-school Chinese-looking eatery complete with (gaudy) red and gold decor.
So London has three very famous names when it comes to roast duck – Four Seasons Roast Duck, New Fortune Cookie and Gold Mine. These three are the most talked about restaurants, but which exactly is the crème de la crème?
We’ve been to all three many times on numerous occasions, and this is our humble take on the best roast ducks in London.
It is no secret that Dishoom is our favourite Indian restaurant in London. Sexy and charming, Dishoom should be on everyone’s bucket list when visiting London. No other Indian restaurants come close.
While there are many other great Indian restaurants in London, Dishoom is the one you should visit if you only have time for one.
Queues are part of the restaurants’ characteristics, and during peak hours, be prepared to wait up to an hour for a table. And we are telling you go queue anyway, because hell yeah, a meal there is better than ten other Indian meals elsewhere.
