Square Meal Review of Hunan ?

There’s no menu at this ‘quirky’ but unassuming Belgravia Chinese, which has been teasing local appetites since 1982 – you simply discuss your likes and dislikes, agree a budget and wait to be surprised. The result is a ‘rolling delivery of small plates’ culled from a huge repertoire of recipes inspired by chef Peng’s native Taiwan and bolstered by influences from other regions – notably Hunan and Szechuan. A spicy, chicken-filled lettuce wrap might kick-start proceedings, ahead of sliced beef with morning glory, or crispy frog’s legs with fermented bamboo shoots – not forgetting the signature broth of minced pork, Chinese mushrooms and ginger. Dumplings and buns provide the carbs. Peng’s son Michael has assembled a stunning wine list peppered with aromatic whites and light, velvety reds.

  1. Now, I really should have written something about this earlier, because the food was very very well executed, and as good an example of classic French techniques as you will find anywhere in London, I would imagine. I was there for a little blogger dinner for the launch of Phil Howards new cookbook, an anthology of savoury recipes. Apparently, this had been many years in the making and I can see why. It’s a beautiful and bountiful cookbook containing recipes for beginners up to the pros...
