A. Wong’s homage to Chinese cuisine

A brightly lit, open kitchen is one of the most inviting features of A. Wong’s homage to regional Chinese cuisine in upmarket Southwest London. This is where you’re likely to see the restaurant’s mastermind, Andrew, working – be it carving out intricate patterns in a scallop dumpling or adding the finishing touches to one of his renowned custard tarts.

The kitchen is devoid of any futuristic gadgetry and the team works at a rhythmic pace. Expect the restaurant to quickly fill up for lunch come midday, and for seductive aromas of fiery chilli, coconut, and Shaoxing rice wine to intensify.

Steamed Duck Yolk Custard Buns

Dim sum worshippers are seated in stylish wishbone chairs, which complement subtle accents of decor that nod to A. Wong’s modern take on recipes, influenced by 2000 years of culinary history and 14 national borders – from Sichuan to Yunnan to the Imperial kitchens of the Forbidden City.

The ‘A.’ in A. Wong is not a dedication to himself but to his mother and late father, Annie and Albert. Andrew is a welcoming and approachable host, and it’s not out of the ordinary to see him shake hands with any familiar face that walks through the door. This really translates into A. Wong’s relaxed atmosphere; something you wouldn’t expect when what hits your table is so artistically plated up.

Sichuanese Aubergines

The dim sum menu boasts a range of cutting-edge interpretations including quail egg croquette puffs, foie gras sticky sesame dumplings, and of course the steamed duck yolk custard buns which aren’t far from earning cult status in London’s Chinese food scene. All can be bought by the piece at lunchtime.

And then there’s a menu of snacks, sharers and dishes featuring the likes of Yunnan fried cheese (yep, that’s right), Chengdu street tofu and Grilled five spiced Dover sole.

Can’t decide? We recommend the unapologetically fiery Sichuanese aubergine.

A well written, short piece that has me tempted to try out the menu. Thanks for that. Was the address deliberately not included (or is the error mine)?

This post inspired me to buy the A. Wong Cookbook today! I love regional Chinese and Sichuan cooking, and I can’t wait to try the recipes. And the restaurant will definitely be on my list of places to try when I am next in London.
