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.
