Chinese Laundry

OPENED October 07th, 2015

Comfort food and family-run restaurants are more popular now than ever before. We like to know who’s behind our dishes, and Chinese Laundry in Islington are to proffer that by letting Londoners to family dishes of their own.

If you’re thinking a night at Chinese Laundry sounds a bit like a night in with the relatives, you wouldn’t be far off. The restaurant’s theme is the Eighties. It’s seen in the décor and in the style of the Chinese home cooking, which Chinese Laundry’s owners enjoyed as they grew up in said period. Don’t worry, it’s unlikely any of your relatives will actually show. What will show are plates with Chinese pickles made on site, to garnish all manner of slow cooked Chinese dishes, aged and fermented and sometimes triple cooked for flavour. Crispy lamb, beggar’s chicken and pork belly, with home made rice cakes, dumplings and, earlier, authentic Chinese breakfasts. Not at all like your mum made, if you’re from anywhere near London.
