Alan Yau has pulled yet another high end classic out of the bag… we salute you sir. This place is a Mecca for dim sum and it’s also very sexy, with its dark wood paneling and sultry ambience. Head to the bar at the back because, no matter how good the food, the cocktails are pretty special too. Drink the Lamachee Martini, made with Belvedere Vodka, plum wine, lemon juice, vanilla sugar and lavender syrup. It’s a little bit of heaven in a glass.
Grab a table or sit at the bar and indulge. It really is a dim sum delight in here, there is every kind you could ever wish for, so get stuck in and enjoy all your favourites, from king crab to spicy pork. Order the duck salad and the venison puff is a must. If you are feeling it, why not order the chicken feet – who knew all those toes could taste so good.
It would be rude not to hit the sake, there is a great selection and all the bottles are very good so order one and kick back in these perfect surroundings. Afternoon gone, tiick. If you’re off the booze, enjoy the tea they have over 54 varieties, it is a Chinese teahouse after all. Whether you choose a smoothie or iced they will be delicious, healthy and refreshing. Oh and do not dare enter back into the madness that is Soho without sampling the puddings, because they are as beautiful as they are delicious.
All in all, your date will be begging for more, your business deal will be done and your mother will be wanting more macaroons (just not all at the same time). We love.
