Tourist-thronged Victoria isn't the first place that comes to mind when thinking of cutting-edge Chinese restaurants in London, but this new-generation hotspot is making waves with its mix of conventional cuisine and flavour-packed tapas-style plates. Lunchtime dim sum are sold singly, so you can cruise from crispy won tons and pot-sticker dumplings to sesame-buttered smoked chicken, BBQ candied pork jerky and 'mouth-numbing' (their description) beef offal with pear. Dinner has a somewhat broader remit, taking in regional street food and original renditions of the classics – think razor clams with braised sea cucumber and wind-dried sausage, gong bao chicken with roasted peanuts or crispy caramelised beef with pickled carrots followed by "unmissable" tea-smoked banana with nut crumble, chocolate and soy caramel. Stunning presentation and remarkably modest bills earn bonus points. Our advice: bag a perch at the kitchen bar for ringside action.
My visit to A. Wong started poorly, with front of house staff making a bit of a mess of my dinner reservation. I arrived at 8.25, on time for my 8.30 booking and was kept waiting for half an hour to be seated. The staff seemed disorganised and no-one came to explain why i was being made to wait. However, owner & chef Andrew Wong was on hand to save the day with his natural charisma and by the end of my meal, i’d completely forgotten about the bad start. (Side note: in their defence, the waiting staff did give us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne to apologise for the delay, and it was nice champagne).Chef...

The first to arrive was the Shanghai steamed dumpling, ginger infused vinegar. I ordered two pieces of these as I knew we cannot share this nor would I want to share this, When we usually have Shanghai steamed dumpling, we will need to dip it into vinegar ourselves, however A.Wong has infused the ginger vinegar into the dumpling which means that this was super juicy and you will need to pop this into your mouth all in one go!

The bamboo glade surrounding this Victoria restaurant created a tropical mood enhanced only by the monsoon-like downpour which accompanied our arrival. We rushed inside, dripping, the friendly staff taking pity on us and seating us straight away. Having already checked the menu online, as any price-conscious blogger might, we knew we were going to plump for dim sum. This format is quick, simple and perfect for a working lunch (our casual disregard for tailoring compared to our comrades at neighbouring tables didn’t go un-noticed). Wide-eyed at the huge choice of goodies, sometimes for as little as £1.50 a piece, we...

Across the blogosphere, there’s frenzy of admiration for what must be London’s favourite casual Chinese restaurant. Review after review salivates over a famous bunch of dishes on the A. Wong menu, and ours is no different. While A. Wong is not the fine-dining experience that you get at excellent HKK, the menu is a great mix of traditional flavour combinations executed in a modern, creative way. And as Chinese is great to share, you can really go crazy with your order. These are our “must orders”.French beans and minced pork might sound a bit odd, but it’s wonderful. The meat has a rich, spicy flavour which is...

Victoria isn’t a part of town blessed with great food options. However, a visit to the theatre to watch Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre gave Emma and me the perfect opportunity to visit A Wong, which had entered my radar with good reviews from critics. Their internet booking system isn’t an automatic system but a member of staff rings you back in a few days to confirm your reservation. I had almost given up hope when they rang.It was a rainy night when we visited and fortunately, there was some cover from the elements while we waited to be let in. It isn’t the largest restaurant but we had a great view...
