Square Meal Review of Mr Kong ?

Established in 1983, Mr Kong is a stalwart of late-night London & the Chinatown scene. It’s a Cantonese of the old school, with an exhausting menu, white tablecloths, carpeted floors & green dining chairs – so why is it acclaimed by so many? The answer lies not only in the charms of the long-serving manager, but also in a ‘chef’s special menu’ that might promise cuttlefish with garlic sprouts & pungent Malaysian shrimp paste, braised turbot with bitter melon, & deep-fried stuffed pig’s intestine with spicy salt. ‘The sizzling beef is hotter than Clive Owen’, exhorts a fan, & the wine list holds a few vintage treasures. Mr Kong’s returning customers include not only Soho night owls & Asian corporates, but also Buddhist monks in search of strict vegan cuisine.
