Square Meal Review of Bo Lang ?

The brainchild of Moscow-born entrepreneur Aytan Eldarova, this specialist dim sum rendezvous is an exclusive all-day offer for Kensington’s fashion-conscious crowd, and it comes with a suitably sophisticated look – think cut-out wooden screens, charcoal velvet chairs and discreet corners. Bō Làng’s menus deliver a mix of traditional and contemporary – from steamed crab dumplings with ‘pearls’ of balsamic or translucent har-gau with blackberry reduction to crispy squid zapped with Szechuan pepper and a modern riff on prawn toasts. There are also some larger items, including an intriguing egg and tofu hotpot, plus rice and noodles for your carb fix. Rare teas served in cast-iron teapots are the perfect accompaniment, and the full afternoon spread brings delicate desserts, fragrant macarons and mochi rice cakes. Meanwhile, oriental-themed cocktails with names like jade dragon vie with boutique wines at the marble-fronted bar.

No question of drinks beforehand we decided to order some wine and a cocktail, (waited some more) before they took our food order. Our 'pre dinner' (which were now accompanying our starter) drinks arrived and, it must be said, the cocktail was worth the wait...

    SilverSpoon London :: Valentine's at Bo Lang

    It was then on for dinner at Bo Lang just across the road. Although I love Valentine's day, I hate it when restaurants serve an over-priced set menu for the day, Bo Lang was our restaurant of choice because they were still serving the a la carte menu. Yay! Bo Lang is an intimate dim sum house with a menu featuring traditional and experimental dim sum. The restaurant is small but stylish with wooden screens giving a feel of the Orient. Naturally we started with some dim sum...
