Squaremeal Review of A. Wong ?

Located in a strange, transient part of Pimlico, Chinese big-hitter A Wong is an eye-opener for those used to provincial versions of the genre. Done out with blonde bentwood chairs and tables, it looks more Ikea café than Asian destination, and there’s plenty of bustle too. That said, there’s expertise and precision in the kitchen, along with a menu of regional specialities that begs to be explored. Dim sum rule at lunchtime; some items such as Chinese chive pot stickers are reasonably familiar, but we’re sold on the more esoteric stuff – both the rabbit and carrot glutinous puffs and the steamed-rice rolls stuffed with gai lan and poached yolk deserve to be tried. In the evening, you could settle for gong bau chicken with peanuts and Szechuan aubergine, although Cantonese honey-roast pork with wind-dried sausage and grated foie gras or Yunnan wild mushroom, truffle and red date casserole are hard to ignore. Tables turn quickly and there’s occasionally space at the kitchen bar.

    Dips Dines :: A. Wong: A Culinary Tour of China | Dips Dines

    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).

    Fatty Mountain :: Fatty Mountain: A.Wong

    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!

    LUNCHING ABOVE OUR WEIGHT :: Restaurant A. Wong | Lunching Above Our Weight

    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...

    vialaporte :: A WONG Pimlico Victoria London

    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...

    The Boozy Bunch :: The Boozy Bunch Restaurant A Wong Victoria amp

    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...
