Gentlemen and fellow followers,
Happy Year of the Horse (Chinese new year for those who weren’t aware)!. This is the first post of 2014, we have been quite busy over these past few weeks as you will see in the next upcoming posts and we will be presenting to you the best night out in London ideas. Exactly a year ago, when we were in Soho trying to find a club, we stumbled upon what is now one of our favourite luxury London restaurant, Yauatcha.
Yauatcha, part of the renowned Hakkasan group, is a fine establishment boasting the best dim-sum in the capital since 2004. In addition to the large range of dim-sum, the restaurant offers a wide range of home teas as well as handmade macarons and high end deserts.Within the first year of opening Yauatcha received a Michelin star demonstrating the creativity and quality of the food delivered by the master chefs
If you are looking for a place for your night out in London, then Yauatcha’s atmosphere is a great venue for all occasions including Pre-club Diner, business meeting lunch, family or friend catch up or even a late Saturday lunch.
If you are planning to celebrate the year of the horse over the next 2 weeks in London, we would strongly recommend visiting Yauatcha as they have recently partnered up with one of the oldest London luxury department store: Harvey Nichols. The partnership brings together luxury creativity and a real taste of China (through a new Chinese menu).
Yauatcha storefront has been taken over from the 20th of January 2014 to the 10th of February, by paper Horses designed by Harvey Nichols to celebrate the Year of the Horse.
We visited the restaurant this Saturday and here are a few of our favourites:(left to right):
- King Crab Shanghai Siew Long Bun with Pork – one of our favourites
- Scallop Shui Mai
- Prosecco Cartizze, Domenico de Bertiol – goes very nicely with the fish
In addition to a Harvey Nichols designed storefront, visitors will have the opportunity to taste a few specials including the special edition of the best seller “Yasmin Honey” (top) with mandarin and sesame:
We also loved the “Strawberry and Basil Gateau” (right), lemon crumble and enjoyed the refreshing “Orange and Apricot Mille Feuille” (left).
Also during this festive season, upon completion of your meal you will receive a red envelope (for good luck) containing vouchers for fashion and treatment treats at Harvey Nichols. In addition, there is a bespoke cocktail at Harvey Nichols designed by the Yauatcha baristas.
So gentlemen and fellow followers, if you are in London and are looking for a nice restaurant close to the busy night life of Soho, then Yauatcha should be featuring on top of your list. This is a definite place to visit for a night out in London. We suggest you book sooner rather than later as it is a sought after venue!
